Gov. Janet Napolitano’s consistent overspending has taken Arizona from a budget surplus to a $2 billion deficit in 18 months while leaving critical infrastructure so underfunded that she desperately needs you to vote to raise your own taxes by $42 billion to pay transportation costs that should have been addressed through the normal budget process during her six years in office.
With that record, Gov. Napolitano is an obvious choice to address the Democratic National Convention — about economics.
I’m not the only one to feel that way. Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords called it a “good fit”:
Giffords called the state’s economic woes “a microcosm for the nation,” noting Arizona’s struggle with foreclosures and illegal immigration, as well as with the demands of continued rapid growth.
Added Giffords, “I really believe these are topics she knows well. You probably couldn’t ask for a better spokeswoman than Governor Napolitano.”
Gov. Janet Napolitano — a “good fit” to speak about economic woes. Thanks Gabby.
