Michael Nowakowski, vice mayor of Phoenix, paints a different picture of what is going on in Arizona. He also feels that sb 1070 is being used to parlay people’s fears into an election win for the current governor. He speaks of the crime rate being down in his state. He believes people being scared off and he is tired of the governor telling the nation that people are being beheaded in Arizona all as a political ploy.
Maybe the vice mayor isn’t running for re-election this cycle? A ruling is expected today or tomorrow ruling whether the injunction to halt 1070 going in to effect is granted.
