A rare* public appearance by Joe Arpaio

On Thursday, Joe Arpaio will be speaking at the September meeting of the Community Council of Scottsdale.

The meeting will be at 7:00 p.m. at the Granite Reef Senior Center in Scottsdale.

For most of us, this might be the only chance to see Joe Arpaio during this election cycle, unless you go to one of his many fundraisers or press conferences (or one of his many anti-Mexican immigrant sweeps). He's refused to debate Dan Saban, the retired police chief who is challenging Arpaio in November's election.

Apparently Arpaio believes that if he just ignores Saban long enough, he and the thousands of Maricopa County voters who are fed up with Arpaio's self-serving bullying and nativism will just go away.

To Joe and his supporters: Don't count on it.

* rare = no TV cameras expected.
