The City of Tucson is in Crisis. If you want things to change you need to vote for candidates who believe in enforcing our laws and bringing personal safety back to our City.
We can decide in Tucson and Pima County how we want to live.
As we close in on the primary elections, please pay close attention to these important dates:
July 05: Primary Ballots mailed
July 21: Last day to request a ballot by mail
July 26: Last day to mail back your ballot
Aug 1: Primary Election
If you want change, voting is where change begins. However, simply voting is not enough. Talk to your friends, family and neighbors to make sure that they are engaged, informed and sending in their ballots on time. Voting is the “least” we can do, so get others off the sidelines and vote!
Tier Two (2) Encampments is a fancy way for Mayor Romero and Council to say “sanctioned encampments.”
Let’s be clear, fentanyl encampments should not exist, ask yourself, is it humane to allow individuals to live like this? (PICS from this week)
(Umbrella is to hide Fentanyl use and keep vapors in)
(Umbrella for using Fentanyl, keeping vapors in)
Mayor Romero and the Current City Council support continually enabling encampments to exist when Fentanyl is in-use. (see below attached email from Ward 3 Council Member Kevin Dahl). Pass the buck...Take no responsibility...
At a minimum 80% of individuals living on the street suffer from substance abuse and 60% suffer from mental illness. Many of our non profits that provide shelter, detox and support are operating at less than 50% occupancy. (Source TPCH).

Hello <TCFC Member>,
The homeless encampment at Navajo Wash has been evaluated as a Tier 2 encampment and will be left in place. If Homeless Protocol re-evaluates the encampment as a Tier 3 encampment, it will be removed. The camp is being monitored, and if you'd like to submit your concerns about the encampment to Homeless Protocol, you can do so here:
As a reminder, please report issues about the bus stop near your business to Sun Tran Customer Service:
-- call 520-792-9222
-- or email email@example.com
I reported the graffiti at the bus stop in front of your business to Sun Tran earlier this week. In the future, you can report it yourself.
As a reminder, please report graffiti to the Graffiti Removal Program:
In general, you'll receive assistance more promptly if you reach out directly to the Department that can address your concerns.
If you have feedback on City policies, I'll be happy to relay that information to Council Member Dahl. And since you asked, our office is open to the public from 9 am - 1 pm, Monday through Friday.
