The AZ Republic has come out with its endorsements for the 2010 Arizona Elections. If you have not registered to vote AND elected to receive mail in ballots for life I suggest you Register To Vote at the Service Arizona website now. Even if we don’t agree on who should be elected I would prefer that you at least exercise the one right in Arizona that does make everyone an equal.
Here are the AZ Republics Endorsements for the 2010 Arizona Elections that I agree with:
AZ Senate: Rodney Glassman
Rodney is the former vice-mayor of Tucson and has gotten everyones attention with his energy and gameplan. He is focused, young, smart, and intelligent. Four things the Dems and the US all need right now.
A lawyer and JAG officer in the Air Force, Glassman served on the staff of Rep. RaÃºl Grijalva. He has served on the boards of an astonishing number of civic organizations – a mark of both dedication and ambition.
This guy is pretty smart too: former Ward 2 Tucson City Councilmember (2 years), Ph.D. (Arid Land Studies) and J.D. from U of A, M.B.A. and M.P.A. from the U of A Eller College of Management, B.S. (Agricultural Economics) from U of A
AZ Attorney General – Felecia Rotellini
Felicia is a prosecutor who appears well versed with the law and is unafraid of taking on big dogs and making them pay for their fuckups:
As superintendent of the Arizona Department of Financial Institutions, she slapped $5 million in fees and fines on Western Union for violating laws meant to cut off funds to Mexican cartels. In 1999, she was lead litigator in the successful case against accounting giant Arthur Andersen for failing to protect investors from the Baptist Foundation fraud.
