One response to “Tim Steller, AZ Daily Star columnist on “The Baked Apple Update” at DGT

  1. Stellar gave his bio (started out as reporter in Flagstaff, later here doing investigative border issues, promoted to columnist), then spoke about City of Tucson ward only elections, Governor’s Ducey reluctance to raise taxes, how to balance writing with criticism vs. ideology. Then he fielded questions from the audience about representation in Ward 6, terminology of Arizona legislature vs. Arizona legislative majority; his discussions with the hosts of “Wake Up Tucson” radio show, how he decides on what to write, the homeless reporting of Safe Park and Jon McLane, his articles on global change emails at UA & Congressman Grijalva. Stellar also said that Supervisor Ally Miller was “disrupting” to Pima County system, but was correct in her handling of the discretionary funds issue. He also said that Councilman Steve Kozachik was “transparently political” in his decision a few years ago to change from a R to a D. Stellar’s parents were present, as snow birds from Minnesota. Present today: Ward 2 Councilman Paul Cunningham, Ward 4 Councilmember Shirley Scott, former AZ legislators Herschella Horton and Elaine Richardson, Phil Lopes.
