A Nov 8th election that may possibly be more important than Phoenix Mayor or recalling Pearce

Not that both aren’t very important elections. But Mississippi will be voting on Measure 26 which will add the following to their state constitution: Initiative #26 would amend the Mississippi Constitution to define the word “person” or “persons”, as those terms are used in Article III of the state constitution, to include every human being […]

A hale and hearty welcome to the “newcomer” in the PHX Mayor race

Per yesterday’s Republic: Former Councilman Greg Stanton is headed to a fall showdown against newcomer Wes Gullett in a runoff election that will determine the next mayor of Phoenix. Newcomer? Oh, okay. This guy: Gullett has extensive experience in government. He was Chief of Staff for Arizona Governor Fife Symington from July 1993 to April […]

A lot of it went for food. According to a review of City Council spending from July 2007 to December 2010, Neely’s office had the […]

How does Phoenix Mayor candidate Jennifer Wright think that contractors keep costs down?

Tea Party favorite Jennifer Wright is seen as an up-and-comer in the Phoenix Mayor race by political observers in Sand Land.
