Metro Week

Season 4, Episode 9 of 25

On the next episode of Metro Week: TUSD leadership: The Tucson Unified School District superintendent resigned his position this week, just as the school board was getting ready to fire him. We talk to Arizona Daily Star columnist Tim Steller about what politics are in play, and how the district will come out of this controversy. Martha McSally: An interview with U.S. Rep. Martha McSally. We talked about town halls, health care reform, immigration policy. City guns: A state law says cities must sell guns they seize during crime investigations, and another state law says cities will lose state funding if they violate state law. Well, the city of Tucson has been destroying guns seized in investigations, and now the state is suing the city for violating state law. Tucson says it should be able to set local policies, rather than have the state determine city policies. We interview AZPM’s Christopher Conover, who’s been following the complicated court case. Downtown hotels: The Rio Nuevo board approved two new hotels downtown this week, bringing the total to three. There are also at least two others in planning. We get an update from Rio Nuevo Board Chairman Fletcher McCusker.
