J.C. Scott: Az Supreme Court OKs education sales tax for ballot

State Rep. Steve Farley talked to John about running for state Senate in the newly redrawn LD9. Farley, who said he's been walking door to door introducing himself to the people on the new district, voiced his support of the one-cent sales tax for education. He talked about the importance of balance between Democrats and Republican in the Legislature, and his involvement in the RTA and the role he played in bringing the Modern Streetcar project to Tucson.

Pima County Recorder F. Ann Rodriguez talked about the record-setting pace of early ballot requests. She believes that early ballots are a benefit to voters and her office will be tracking delivery of the vote by mail. Rodriguez, who has served as recorder for 20 years, is running for re-election.

Ann-Eve Pedersen, the chairwoman of the group pushing the "Quality Jobs and Education" initiative talked about the state Supreme Court's decision to allow the one-cent sales tax initiative on the ballot. Pedersen said the initiative will provide a revenue source to make up for shortfalls in education funding.
