Romero & Glassman bring young energy to council
TUCSON -- The City Council kicked off a new era today with the swearing in of new Democratic members Rodney Glassman and Regina Romero.
I supported both for election, so I'm quite pleased.
Outgoing Council members Jose Ibarra and Carol West both went out with class at an emotional ceremony downtown in the beautiful Fox Theater.
Look for a reliable progressive voting bloc to evolve between Leal, Uhlich and Romero, with Trasoff, Glassman, Scott and Mayor Walkup as swings.
As a Planning Commissioner and Neighborhood President, I look forward to working cooperatively with the new council to solve problems and improve quality of life.
