I’m headed off to a meeting of the Pima County Bond Advisory Committee today. My understanding is that Terri Proud and some other sponsors of a bill to cripple the county’s ability to sell bonds will be there.
The bill would give Sahuarita, Oro Valley and Marana the ability to effectively veto projects. Ostensibly, this is being done to protect those communities, but those communities also have reps on the bond committee, request some big money projects and, near as anyone can tell, haven’t asked for this bill.
But hey, why miss a chance to bash local government? Especially one run by Democrats. Facts be damned.
Oh, by the way, if this is about protecting smaller communities, why not South Tucson? Just curious.
I’m working on an op-ed about the bill. Look for it.
