Worth Repeating: Pima GOP on Jonathan Rothschild

“Rick accuses me of not telling the truth when I said my family business hadn’t taken any new cases for the City of Tucson. Of course I was telling the truth; our firm has not taken a new case from the City in the last year or two. We have given legal advice – but legal advice is not a case.”   Stated Jonathan Rothschild.

Mr. Rothschild is trying to draw a distinction between giving legal advice and taking on a new case. Regardless of semantics, Rothschild’s firm was being paid by the city. How disingenuous – not taking “cases” just taking our money and no reasonable person sees a distinction between taking on new legal matters and new legal cases.  He is intentionally deceiving the public. Our city deserves a mayor who doesn’t parse his words. When our next Mayor looks people in the eye, the people of Tucson deserve to know that he isn’t trying to trick them with word games.  We’re seeing the real Jonathan Rothschild. Our city deserves a leader who shoots straight and tells the truth. Mr. Rothschild has just proven he isn’t that person.

Friday Poll: Whose your pick for Tucson Mayor?

This Friday’s poll will focus on the race for Mayor of Tucson.

Tucson is a tough municipality to get elected as a conservative. The current mayor, Bob Walkup – a Republican, was elected in 1999 and won re-election twice. He will not be seeking a second term.

This leaves the field to four candidates: Shaun McClusky, Jonathan Rothschild, Ron Asta and Marshall Home. Two other candidates, Jon McLane, a Green Party candidate, withdrew and threw his support behind Republican Shaun McClusky. Another candidate, Thomas Lombardi, a Democrat also withdrew from the race.

As we go to post this poll, we have some questions regarding the credibility of Marshall Home as a candidate. If anyone knows whether Mr. Home is still in the race or is not qualified to run, please let us know.

(The poll will remain open until next Friday and will limit repeat voting.)
