Yes, she has connections to her fathers people, but I do not understand why the New Times, which seems to be more of an opinion paper these days; and the Arizona Republic, which the New Times completely lampooned a few months back, have just stumbled upon cronyism in politics. Huh? It takes the people you know to get elected??? Say it aint so!!! Lets rush this to press because this is a real story!! Why must we bash the Pastor family? They have done more for this city and state then most politicians...especially that worthless, kiss ass, no good Nowakowski! Please do not get me started on Ruth Ann and her creepy presence and same crappy dribble she delievers to everyone at debates or meetings! Hell no-shot Art Harding has better ideas than both of them combined. I was at the District 7 debate, and I was proud to hear Laura refer to her father...a man who we never give respect to but want to cut down every chance we get. Why was the applause that broke out when she said "my father" not reported on? And yes, Goodyear is a huge competition to the City of Phoenix...they did just steal a major Cancer center away from our city, and their housing/economic growth continues full steam ahead.
It has become obvious that Nowakowski, who continues to faulter and use last ditch efforts to save his campaign, is not qualified to hold office...this man who worked with Chavez obviously does not remember anything of the teachings of this great leader, Chavez was a true patriot, a man of his convictions, and an humble figure who most certainly would not agree with Nowakowski's attacks on Pastor.
Its sad to see the decline of the New Times...constant opinionated attacks on Arizona's political figures...I used to read the 'Times loyally from a young age, every week I would pick up a copy and read cover to cover...it seems as if only one talented writer continues to be on staff(Pela). I guess it is good to see the New Times writing somewhat-investigative stories about poltics and current events that matter to people, instead of stories about young girls who rap and up and coming DJ's...if the New Times is covering so called "entertainment" how bout logging onto a computer and seeing what the underground music scene is like in Phoenix and seeing what truly interesting event are going on, instead of focusing on clubs and such...I realize you have a demographic to appeal to, but eventually your readers will tire of the name calling and trash talking.
