Power down: TUSD needs help after Sanchez battle turns ugly

Politics is getting way too personal on TUSD's Governing Board, which puts schools at risk. So for the good of the students, teachers and my sanity, the board members and their accompanying factions must start to look outside themselves to the broader community to fix what's wrong.... Read more»1

Stop the insanity: TUSD eschews the easy for the scandalous in Sanchez battle

No one worry. It's going to be fine. Rest easy. Lawyers are now in charge. That passage – never before written in the English language – describes how the TUSD Governing Board has taken a tough but legit decision to fire the superintendent and turned it into a budding political disaster. TUSD doesn't have this kind of goodwill to burn.... Read more»

Church of Blake wants a piece of Az's school voucher action

So how can Blakeism make taxpayer dollars with no accountability work for me as I spread a vision some may find morally repugnant? Stick it to the suckers, that's how. Arizona lawmakers are fast-tracking a bill to give tax money to religious schools. Well, I've got a church and I will teach those little ragamuffins all they need to know.... Read more»2

Out of the Death Star: County needs to snatch victory from defeat on World View

So there's a whole lot more of this Pima County-World View-Goldwater Institute legal mess to wade through. Or the county could simply declare victory and move on. While the supervisors were in a closed-door meeting getting geared up to keep the fight going, I was on the phone with Goldwater finding a way out of this imbroglio. ... Read more»2

Factcheck: Trump’s faulty refugee policy comparison

Border tax ideas could hit Arizona businesses where they live

If Trump embraces the House's "border adjusted" tax to pay for his wall, then only establishment Republicans, Mexican globalism and the president's grace in defeat will save us from global trade war, with billions at stake just here in Arizona. We've seen little evidence any of them have any authority over anything. ... Read more»

Orange alert: McSally has a Trump problem

Martha McSally is about to learn it's much different running for reelection when your party is in the White House than it is when your team is out of power. Mid-term elections are referendums on the president and McSally now gets to be Trump's proxy. ... Read more»3

Time out on cruelty: Ducey's budget takes itsy-bitsy steps in right direction

Ducey's budget does not put us on a path toward a moderate future. Arizona still has a smoldering hole where the empathy goes. But for him, this budget, with its nods toward education, is practically a drum circle. I'll take it, praise the light and implore voters to make more structural changes in how Arizona operates. ...

Ducey's '18 agenda includes a bunch to think about, but money required

Gov. Doug Ducey is an easy target for non-conservatives but a lot of what he discussed in his State of the State deserves a fair hearing ... just after he shows us the cash. The budget will tell if the governor's address signals a halt to the slashing and burning of Arizona government.... Read more»
