downtownresident commented on Mesa lawmaker wants pot studied for violence

Leave it up to Bowers and the rest of the Mormons who think the Stork brings babies, but know NOTHING about MMJ, nor illegal pot. Rusty, you are not equipped to legislate a substance about which you know nothing. Sit down, shut up and let scientists and doctors do their jobs.

You said, "But it quickly spiraled downward after China two years ago began rejecting shipments of recyclables because they were too contaminated by garbage."

NO! China rejected our recyclables because of the IDIOTIC TARIFFS iMposed on China by Trump to sooth his ego. Tell it like i…

Developers will continue to pull the strings when millions of dollars are involved and some time later the residential encroachment will result in numerous complaints from "injured" citizen…

Let's remember site 17, at the corner of University and Mesa Drive. The city demolished 20 acres of homes to make way for a promised development that never came, 30 years ago! That's 30 years of no tax revenue, no development and the expense of maintenance. Build it and they will come!

This is clearly a classic "bait and switch" scam.
This tax was presented as a barley palatable, $16.00 per vehicle tax.
Now, one person has decided to double the tax because their first figures grossly underestimated the revenue this tax would generate??????

It's about time! I worked down there for 16 years and it was a revolving door. The homeless would trespass and get arrested, waste PD time, then waste jail time and then waste court time and do it all over again the next week. Community Bridges is a great help to both parties.
