Dear Mayor and Council,
Regarding Item #7 put on the April 4th, Study Session put on the agenda by Mayor Regina Romero and Lane Santa Cruz: "Discussion and Direction Relating to Fare-Free Transit for Sun Tran, Sun Link and Sun Van (City Wide)"
PLEASE VOTE “NO” ON THIS ITEM!
FREE Bus fare is not free when you raise taxes and impose levy’s on citizens and businesses. We simply cannot afford more taxes. This is bad policy for our community and is bad for Tucson.
I want busses to be safe and clean again. The free bus program needs to stop as it is not safe for drivers or riders and has become a method to transport fentanyl around our community. Organized retail theft is being facilitated by the bus being free as criminals are timing their theft and getaway with the arrival of the free bus.
In the past there have been plentiful options for free and reduced fares for those in need that apply and qualify.
NO MORE TAXES, NO MORE CRIME!

While inspecting the Estevan Park Fentanyl Camp this week, TCFC heard a UNIFORMED police officer bought Meth from a camp resident. This is what Mayor Regina Romero, Lane Santa Cruz and City Council are funding criminals with taxpayer money!
TCFC has sent the following OPEN LETTER TO Tucson Mayor Regina Romero and City Council Members Demanding Immediate action to return Estevan Park to the neighborhood!!! See the letter below:
April 2, 2023
Mayor Romero and Tucson City Council Members:
Over the last several months, the Tucson Crime Free Coalition has been in contact with numerous concerned citizens, business owners and property owners located in the vicinity of the Estevan Park encampment. The surrounding community is being adversely affected and victimized by the existence and unfettered growth of this encampment. We know that TPD is aware of this encampment. We also know that the City of Tucson is not only aware of this encampment but is using taxpayer money to help fund its continuance and growth. When walking through this encampment, open air drug use is commonplace, with more evidence of drug paraphernalia littering the ground. Dealing of drugs has become so acceptable, our contacts shared with us that a uniformed TPD officer was recently able to purchase methamphetamine in this encampment and subsequently arrested the dealer. The surrounding community is reporting burglaries, theft, altercations and feeling not safe. Estevan Park is no longer safe and is rarely used by citizens for recreational purposes. It is not humane to enable people to continue living this lifestyle. It is not acceptable to force law-abiding taxpayers to live with this level of criminality. The City has the duty and obligation to exercise its police powers to eliminate the danger caused by this hazardous situation.
On behalf of our community, that is suffering, we are calling for the immediate removal of the Estevan Park Encampment and cleanup of the park.
If this is not a “Tier 3” encampment, we respectfully request a written response informing us of that justification.
Sincerely,The Tucson Crime Free Coalition
March 27th, 2023 - PHOENIX Mayor and Council ordered by court to restore public safety!!!
JUSTICE PREVAILED! The citizens and business prevailed in Phoenix with the court finding that PHOENIX Mayor and city Council: "refuses to enforce criminal and quality-of-life laws prohibiting loitering, disturbing the peace, drunken and disorderly conduct, drug use, domestic violence, and obstruction of streets, sidewalks, and other public grounds inside the Zone."
Phoenix Mayor and Council electeds spent over $100,000 of taxpayer money to fight in court, to not do their duty! And LOST!
