J.C. Scott: Sun Van fare increase debated

On Thursday's edition:

We started the show with Ward 2 Tucson City Councilwoman Shirley Scott, who gave her take on a proposed fare increase for Sun Van, the arrival of Tucson's first Sun Link streetcar, a city agreement not to fight a liquor license for the new Walmart at El Con Mall, a Council decision not to provide extra funds for the spay and neuter problem, a landowner's fight with the county over a road proposal that could cost Tucson and a update of Houghton Road construction.

33 min: We were joined by Republican state Rep. Ethan Orr (LD9). Orr and Tucson City Councilman Paul Cunningham have a proposal that would avoid a tripling of fares for Sun Van riders. He also talked about the continuing fight over Medicaid expansion, new campaign finance laws and his goals for the next session of the Legislature.

51 min: We started the second hour of the show with Arizona Education Association President Andrew Morrill, who talked about his conversation with U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. He also talked about Arizona and the federal Education Department being in a No Child Left Behind waiver standoff, expected increases in state education funding and a study that finds that Americans support charter schools and oppose vouchers.

85 min: We finished the show with the Dan Gibson, editor of the Tucson Weekly, who gave a rundown of this week's edition.
