Approximately two months ago, a plan for a small local business incentive program that is equitable and socially responsible, an addition to the City's Comprehensive Economic Development Plan, was moved by Councilwoman Regina Romero, unanimously approved by mayor and council. Where is it now?
Tucsonans, it is not unreasonable to ask for the same amount of money to fund this program that mayor and council approved on Feb. 21 with the Water Infrastructure Incentive Program. Tucsonans, come together! Local First Arizona, Chukson/Tucson Water Protectors, Sustainable Tucson, Save Fourth Avenue, who else will speak out for economic equity?
