Letter: Nonpartisan pressure

Dear Mr. Sain: Everyone I know is with you on the toxic Republicans in Prescott and their unconscionable using a very earnest young man—Greg Mengarelli.
Your column about their running our city election is beyond the pale!
I worked with Greg on the school override and bond election and I guess the R’s helped it pass by some miracle, as it’s unusual for them to favor new assessments called taxes by any honest voter, except for the Phoenix hospital assessment which had to be accepted to save the health insurance coverage for Arizonans.
It’s hard to imagine what these people told Greg to convince him to run. If they now leave politics at the door of city hall, he will be a good mayor, but I’m afraid he owes them.
Keep up the NON-PARTISAN column pressure.
