Mike Boyd:
Letter: Mike Boyd Hasn't Changed

"Re: the Jan. 27 guest column "Progressive policies hurt minorities, working poor."

Former member of the Pima County Board of Supervisors Mike Boyd returned from a 20 year absence with a new angry and intolerant attitude. According to Mike there is some merit to "progressive" ideas like DACA, the notion of global warming and the pursuit of alternatives to fossil fuels. The problem he has is with those progressives who are ALL rabid in pursuit of their agenda. No solutions are offered to any of the complex issues raised. Same Mike Boyd we remember from back in the day. Nothing positive to add to the conversation. Just angry and an out in the open Trumper. Talk to you in another 20 years, Mike.

"The Pima County Board of Supervisors had a Republican majority in 1992. Most have forgotten. Others would like to. They were Mike Boyd, Ed Moore and Paul Marsh. Moore won in 1984 and 1988 as a Democrat and 1992 with the GOP. Their problem was simple - they had no idea how to govern."

Ex-Supervisor Boyd Wants Taxpayer-Financed Ice Rink
"Former Pima County Supervisor Mike Boyd, whose son plays ice hockey, wants the county to include a new ice rink in a 2008 bond package [...] Boyd said building the rink on public property will make a big difference to the rink's bottom line and allow this new venture to be successful where others have failed. [...] "If the Gateway rink didn't have to pay the land costs, it would be open today," he said. [...] Rodney Glassman, a City Council candidate who used to manage the Gateway Ice Center when his family owned it, said he believes that's true."

"Then deputy county manager, Postil was out to lunch with Pima County Supervisor Dan Eckstrom. Over red chile and carne seca, the two exchanged notes on the big shake-up at the top of county government.

More changes were in the wind."
