It was a year ago that I signed on to blog here at this political blogsite Blog for Arizona, with a bunch of other Democratic and Independent guys & gals. Coming from over four and a half years at Tucsoncitizen.com, it was easy to use the same WordPress dashboard, and since I was the event blogger over there, I took on the same tasks here to promote hardworking, nonprofit groups and other community oriented events here in the Old Pueblo (and elsewhere in Arizona).
So let’s celebrate my first year here online, and I encourage all of you to check out the NEW image Calendar, which I have been diligently toiling to update as often as I can with information and event flyers. It’s on the right side of the top bar of our front page, or online by clicking this link:

Up for election this year in Nov. 2015 are the Tucson Mayor, Tucson Councilmembers in Ward 2, 4, 1 (easy to remember, “two four one”). Tucson Weekly is already reporting that an actor/director/producer named Chuck Williams hopes to challenge Mayor Jonathan Rothschild in the Democratic primary on August 25. Read article here: http://www.tucsonweekly.com/TheRange/archives/2015/01/27/political-theater-actor-director-producer-wants-to-run-against-tucson-mayor-rothschild. Stay tuned for any challenges to Councilmembers Regina Romero (Ward 1), Paul Cunningham (Ward 2) or Shirley Scott (Ward 4), all Democrats.
