A ghastly review can be enough to make any restaurateur tremble. But to Steve Dunn, a frightening culinary experience is exactly what he wants for his guests.
One reason I am voting for Jo Holt for Senate in (State Legislative District 11) is Steve Smith’s attitude regarding our neighbors to the south. He sees Mexicans only as undesirables and Mexico only as the cause of problems in Arizona. His pronouncements are all playing on fears about the border and ignore the importance of Mexico to the economy of Arizona.
One thing I’ve noticed the Republicans and particularly the far right, scorched earth, take no prisoners Tea Party types are really good at is projection. Whatever dirty tricks they are up to, they accuse their opponents of doing. A perfect example of this is the Oct. 15 letter from Rick Cunnington wherin he accuses Jo Holt of being inflexible and beholden to some completely made up Democratic “prime directive”. Captain Kirk on Star Treck had a prime directive. No evidence exists that the Democrats do. The Republicans on the other hand have given us the most unproductive Congress in history, the most Senate filibusters in history and a lege in Phoenix that only seems capable of passing bills that are clearly unconstitutional so the tax payers can spend millions defending them in court.

I want to thank The Explorer for having Chris Flora cover an issue of high importance to a large number of Oro Valley residents. I’d like to respond to a quote from Don Davis, one of the partners of Davis Development, and Properties LLC. Mr. Davis indicates in the article of Aug. 27 that my conversations with him about including the concerns and suggestions provided by residents on April 1 “were misconstrued”.

Smith led the effort in his time in the House and Senate to construct a border fence along our southern border funded by private donations – NOT taxpayer dollars. Sheriffs Joe Arpaio and Paul Babeu have endorsed Steve Smith because he is serious about solving a real crisis.
