Stop, STOPP!

Stop already, STOPP.

You’re starting to make yourself look ridiculous. And petty.

STOPP, or Save Tonopah Oppose Poultry Plant, recently delivered a petition to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors demanding Clint Hickman, chairman of the board who represents District 4, of which Tonopah is a part of, recuse himself from any and all air quality issues countywide.

Mayoral debate is right thing to do for voters

We hope Stephanie Karlin will take Kenn Weise up on his request for a debate. Avondale residents are paying enough for a special election, they deserve to hear what separates their two mayoral candidates.

The city’s current mayor and vice mayor were the top two vote-getters in a three-way competition for the City Council’s top seat in the August primary, edging out Frank Scott, a former councilman and vice mayor.

Biden wouldn’t call Americans deplorable

Rumor has it Joe Biden is being prepped to step in should Hillary’s health falter further rendering her incapable of completing her campaign for the country’s highest office. I would have thought her vice presidential pick would have been the one to be tapped for the position, but I guess Biden makes more sense seeing as how no one has heard of Tim Kaine.

Who is this man with a badge?

I first met Joe Arpaio when he ran for sheriff the first time. He came in for an endorsement interview with our editor and me.

We endorsed in local, county, state and congressional elections in the early years.

Not much stood out about Arpaio at the time. He had a background in law enforcement and the county needed a new sheriff after the problems the current one had finding the killers in the Buddhist temple murders.

The jobs aren’t coming back

The jobs aren’t coming back

There is a myth that it is possible to bring back the jobs from overseas. And the likelihood of that happening is about as likely as purchasing the winning lottery ticket while being hit by lightning.

Home Rule failure would cripple West Valley cities

Avondale and Tolleson voters have one question on their ballots that is more important than any office they’ll be voting for.

It’s the question of whether or not to approve the Home Rule Option.

Passage of the Home Rule Option, or the Alternative Local Expenditure Limitation, is crucial if residents wish to keep the services they’ve become accustomed to — police and fire protection, trash collection, clean water, things like that.

Weise, Del Palacio, Dennis, Pineda have our support

What we’re talking about is leadership.”

Kenneth Weise, Avondale’s current mayor, said that during his introduction Aug. 4 at the Avondale candidate forum at Estrella Mountain Community College. And he’s right. The mayor needs to lead the city and Weise has proven that he is the right man for the job.
