Augusta/Rosemont Lobbyist Soundly Defeated in Tucson Mayor’s Race

Share/Bookmark

Less than 90 minutes after the polls closed, the Arizona Daily Star called the Tucson Mayor’s race and the winner was NOT Rosemont lobbyist Rick Grinnell.

It appears that running on a platform of permanently destroying our mountains to enrich a junior Canadian mining company and it’s foreign investors was not such a good thing.

  1. Outside Observer says:

    Interesting. The article refers to Rothschild’s win as being a result of several factors… none of which are related to his position regarding the proposed Rosemont Copper Mine:

    “Rothschild’s win didn’t come as a surprise to most political observers. In addition to a sizeable Democratic voter advantage, Rothschild enjoyed a significant fundraising edge and had the entirety of the primary season to introduce himself to voters.”

    Can you confirm the source of your information?

  2. Outside Observer says:

    As Mr. Spock would say: Interesting. The article merely confirms the public’s understanding of Grinnell’s position regarding the proposed Rosemont Copper (not exactly”new” information). I also noted the article referenced was written in July; well before the November elections.

    In the original post, can I also presume that you have included the Daily Star’s rationale for Grinnell’s loss?

    Got anything better?
