Apparently, the Reps consider Scottsdale to be home turf...

..Of course, given their registration advantage in the city right now (63,767 - 36,117 according to the Maricopa County Recorder's Office), it might be hard to argue with their confidence. Still, it's trending Bluer...but I digress.

For the 2nd consecutive week, Republicans will be holding a forum on the state budget, and for the 2nd consecutive week, it will be in Scottsdale.

This one will have a very different cast of characters, however.

From the Governor's weekly schedule -
East Valley Mayors to Host State Budget Forum with Governor Brewer
7:00 p.m. – Governor to Provide Remarks
Granite Reef Senior Center
1700 North Granite Reef Road, Scottsdale
A number of EV mayors, (Republicans all) including Scottsdale's Jim Lane and Tempe's Hugh Hallman, are scheduled to attend.

It probably won't be as colorful as last week's legislative forum in the Scottsdale Library, but it could still be fun.

It might be for very different reasons, but Governor Jan Brewer and most mayors in AZ aren't any happier with the lege and its screwing around on the budget than are the citizens of AZ.

100 days and counting, and the Reps are still keeping their budget proposal a secret.

Anyway, tomorrow's meeting should be fun, at least in a "Hey! It's cheaper than a movie." sort of way. :))
