J.C. Scott: Pima County looking for input on bond projects

On Friday's edition:

We started the show with Jim Small, editor of the Arizona Capitol Times, who talked about the legacy of Janet Napolitano, former Arizona governor and Homeland Security secretary. Small also discussed electricity deregulation and solar power, campaign finance laws, and a challenge to a law on homeowners associations.

28 minutes into the show, we were joined by Ward 6 Tucson City Councilman Steve Kozachik, who invited listeners to a town hall meeting with TUSD Superintendent H.T. Sanchez and Pima Community Collage Chancellor Lee Lambert, scheduled for Sept. 5. Kozachik also talked about Sun Link streetcar costs, overcrowding at area animal shelters, city pensions, photo-radar, city spending limits, downtown development, Rio Nuevo projects and home rule measures.

53 min: We interviewed Nicole Fyffe, assistant to Pima County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry. Fyffe talked about the process of choosing Pima County bond projects. The county has put out a public survey asking for input on proposed projects, to help narrow the list for a future bond election.

75 min: Next up was Mike Feder, general manager of the Tucson Padres, who invited listeners to come out to the ball park for this weekend's home stand. This weekend's activities are highlighted by Saturday night's LeeAnne Savage concert after the game.

87 min: We finished the show with Washington commentator Jimmy Zuma, who covered the latest news from the capital, including race relations and "Stand Your Ground" laws, health care reform, immigration reform and the presidential appointment process.
