Sarah, Lingner is widely recognized as one of the strongest advocates for affordable housing and homeless services in Arizona. The Laveen people wanted to recall him for supporting affordable housing in their area. Your buddy Tony Summers at the Republic lived 2 doors down from the recall leader and his article was total trash. He admitted that he had never called when i tracked him down and let him know that his name never showed up in office call logs or voicemails. He was lying. The article he wrote mostly complained about the lack of Lingners attention to road maintenance in Lingners district. I informed him that Lingner had secured over half of the City-wide budget for road maintenance in District 7. That means that 1 district out of 8 districts in the city had 1/2 of the road maintenance budget. His hatchet job was a weak attempt to discredit a hard working advocate for affordable housing. We have seen these attacks before, and they are usually full of lies and innuendo. By the way, how do you think 50 residents of Laveen found out about this position being open much less being motivated enough to email the Housing Authority unless someone mounted an organized effort? 50 people dont email about shootings in their neighborhood much less a hiring process for the Director of County Housing. The same insiders that put you up to this story organized that email effort, thats pretty obvious.
