On this episode, Metro Week analyzes the results of the Nov. 7 local elections. A panel of journalists discuss the Tucson City Council races, the overwhelming decisions against most school funding measures, and the zoo improvements tax, which was the closest margin of all issues on the ballot. On the panel: Dylan Smith of the Tucson Sentinel, Jim Nintzel of the Tucson Weekly, Hank Stephenson of the Arizona Daily Star.
Tucson Unified School District asked voters to approve a $180 bond program for school building improvements. It would have raised property taxes to pay off the debt, but voters overwhelmingly turned it down. TUSD Superintendent Gabriel Trujillo talks about what that means for the district.
Sat. Nov. 11 is Veterans Day, and Metro Week travels to Camp Bravo, where many homeless veterans live temporarily, or permanently. Manny, a resident there, shared his story with us one year ago, and we revisit Camp Bravo to get an update from him. More information: Camp Bravo's Facebook page and address: 550 E 19th Street.
