Apparently the voters thought it unnecessary to foster economic development and improve parks, roads, flood control, and tourism.

This must be a great town to live in! Heck, up in Phoenix voters approved $34 billion in bonds solely for transportation. Must be a mess up there.

We've all read your posts over the last several months about unemployment rates, vacancy rates, etc. Why would you think those all those poor unemployed landlords would vote to raise their taxes?

Gee, Tucson just can't win with you, can it?

The voters spoke. If you had a vote, I hope you used it too.

Why should I be reminding YOU as moderator to refrain from personal generalizations and stick with the topic?

Just telling it like it is and yes, I am a landlord.

Too many Fox news watchers don’t understand how the world works, and/or are short sighted and don’t want to invest in the future.

There should now be a ban on people complaining about the roads or any other government services here. You don’t get what you don’t pay for.

The Tucson metro area is far more liberal than the Phoenix metro area, yet the more conservative Phoenix area generally votes in favor of such bonds. And Fox News is fair and balanced while the rest are far left wing, regardless of what any Democrat wants you to believe.

The first part is true. I donít know what peopleís problem is then.
The second part is funny. Iím assuming you meant it to be.

No, it is an ABSOLUTE FACT. Any Democrat who tries to convince anyone that Fox News is biased and the others are neutral are intentionally lying to push their agenda. Fact is, all Democrats (yes, every single one of them) are intolerant of opposing views and will do anything to censor the fair and balanced competition.

Oh, I'm quite on topic. It's another Tucson-bashing thread from you, which is also telling it like it is.

Being a moderator does not preclude me from having my own opinions. When I'm posting as a moderator, it will be in red font, to help you distinguish between the two.

If you voted (and I'm going to assume you did, even though you did not address that part), that's all part of a democracy. Sometimes your chosen side doesn't win.

Quite a heavy statement there, don't you think.

First of all, Fox News is less fair and balanced than the other news agencies. Yes, the "mainstream" media may have a slight liberal bias. However, Fox News has a significant conservative bias.

Secondly, I am a registered Democrat and I am open to opposing views and would not want to end fair and balanced competition, if it exists. However, as I posted above, it doesn't.

Third, going back to the OP, Tucson and Tucson voters historically are anti-Phoenix and anti-development. Right or wrong, Tucson voters don't want Tucson to end up with the immense sprawl of the Phoenix area.

It was quite a big feat that Pima County was able to get the $2.1 billion RTA plan passed in 2006.

SLIGHT!? You mean extreme liberal bias. Far more extreme than the mythical conservative bias of Fox News.
