J.C. Scott: Sunnyside's Isqueirdo facing opposition
On Monday's edition:
We started our show with Tucsoncitizen.com administrator Mark B. Evans, who talked about the Supreme Court ruling on Arizona's voter citizenship proof law, Medicaid expansion, immigration, sales tax reform, plus construction and operations costs for the Sun Link streetcar.
39 minutes into the show: We were joined by Fred DuVal, a Democrat running for governor, and producer of the play "8," written by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black. The show will be performed June 25 at the Temple of Music and Art, and chronicles the historic federal trial challenging the constitutionality of California’s Prop. 8 banning same-sex marriage. The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to issue a ruling on Prop. 8 later this month. “8” is based on the trial transcripts, first-hand observations of the courtroom drama and interviews with the plaintiffs and their families.
51 min: Next up was Sunnyside Governing Board member Buck Crouch, who talked about why he does not support extending the contract of current Sunnyside Superintendent Dr. Manuel Isquierdo.
79 min: We were joined by developer Richard Studwell, who gave his weekly commentary focused on Tucson business development, City Council actions and city neighborhood issues.
