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 ballot.
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.
