D.C. statehood a racial, voting rights issue

When our State Senate considers D.C. statehood, they should treat this issue as a necessary and substantive pro-democracy reform rather than giving it the cursory and partisan treatment that the House did. If this issue comes up in the U.S. Senate, I hope Sens.Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly will recognize D.C. statehood for the racial justice and voting rights issue that it is.

Homeowners, not government, should decide on short-term rentals

The article “Time to crack down on short-term rentals abuses” suggests that the way to remedy the previous bad legislation by the Arizona legislature, preventing HOA’s from banning Short Term Rentals (STR’s), is to empower local governments to make their own rules and laws preventing the abuse of STR’s. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Help me understand

The despicable bills proposed by the conservative right continue to prevail in a state that needs to embrace civility and moderation. Arizona can thank Cindy McCain for the Biden/Harris/Kelly victories, as the down ballot Republicans retained their dominance in a state that only wishes to be blue.

Legislature supports dirty air

One can only wonder why the state legislators wish to undo the work of years by the Arizona Corporation Commission with input from citizens like me. Clean energy conserves our precious resources and keeps the air we breathe and the water we drink clean and healthy.

Congratulations to the winners

With the election season almost completed, I thought early and optimistic support of the winners and their obligation to the voters might be a good start.

Arizona Republicans sore losers

Not a single Arizona Republican challenged their election results, yet many of them cried foul at president-elect Joe Biden's results. Why is that I wonder?

Buyer beware – McSally turned her back on us

Senator Martha McSally has flooded the airways with advertisements stating she will protect our health care. Instead, she just voted to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett, who is against the Affordable Care Act, to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Conservative values – cooperation, compromise, caring

Cooperation, compromise, and caring for each other, are conservative values. I’m proudly conservative. I hope what that word means can be reclaimed, in time.

A word to the candidates

Voters are looking to you for answers, so remember that together we will stand and flourish while the continued divisiveness is beneficial to no one.
