Metro Week

Season 4, Episode 11 of 25

On the next episode of Metro Week: State of the City: Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild expands on some of the ideas in his State of the City speech: why Tucson needs to focus on partnerships with community groups, the upcoming sales tax increase question voters will decide on a May ballot, and what the city needs to continue to work on. Pima Community College: Pima Community College Chancellor Lee Lambert talks about how the college came out of scrutiny from its accrediting agency, and what it still needs to work on. He says the college can’ t stop working to improve. Local gasoline tax: Pima County Supervisor Sharon Bronson talks about the potential for counties to charge their own gasoline tax to pay for road work. State lawmakers are considering changing state law to allow this kind of local tax. She says it’s not the best solution. Other city issues: Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild talks about city issues he did not address in his speech, such as the political response to his recent carjacking, legislation that could affect downtown revitalization progress, and the election year ahead.
