You can stick a fork in it, it's done. State high court rejects pension initiative appeal:
The Arizona Supreme Court declined to make an expedited ruling on the
Committee for Sustainable Retirement Benefits appeal to overturn an
appellate court decision that booted the initiative from the November
The Supreme Court said they would review the appellate
court decision at a later date, but the deadline to make this year’s
ballot was Monday at 5 p.m.
As I previously posted:
Here is the question the Tucson media has yet to demonstrate any
interest in answering. Paul Jacob and his Liberty
Initiative Fund specializes in ballot measures. Jacob did not pick
Tucson at random for this pension initiative. Someone in Tucson brought
this guy to town for this initiative. The individuals fronting for the
Committee for Sustainable Retirement — Joseph LaRusso, sales director
for Western Emissions, Inc., and Jack Heather, a CPA, PLLC — are not
the individuals responsible for bringing this out-of-state agitator to
Tucson. That would be someone among the usual suspects in the GOP
hierarchy in Pima County.
The Tucson media has an obligation to discover and to report who is really
behind this Initiative to Bankrupt the City of Tucson (Prop. 201), and
to find out what is driving this plot to financially bankrupt the City
of Tucson and to turn us into Detroit. Start digging, the public is
entitled to know the answers.
The local Tucson media is covering up for the usual suspects in the GOP
hierarchy in Pima County by failing to report on who is really
behind the Initiative to Bankrupt the City of Tucson (Prop. 201). The coward ought to come forward and take ownership.
