Pamela Powers Hannley, a progressive voice for Arizona
Last week I posted 2 stories about downtown Tucson land deals currently being considered by the Mayor and Council– one urging the M&C to dump the convention hotel deal (for now) because it is too financially risky for taxpayers and the other urging the M&C to discuss the hotel and the Gadsden (1, 2, 3) deal in the sunshine.
Councilman Steve Kozachik sent a formal appeal to Mayor Bob Walkup asking that these discussions be public. Unfortunately, Walkup chose not to heed Kozachik’s request. Both of these development issues are on today’s M&C agenda as “Executive Sessions” (AKA, non-public).
If you want to voice your opinion about these issues– or anything else facing the City of Tucson– there is a Call to the Audience at tonight’s regular M&C meeting, beginning at 5:30 p.m.
