"One of many distinctions between me and the current occupant at Ward 1 is that I will ensure that existing environmental requirements are honored by all city residents. As the Arizona Daily Star reported, the 'vast majority' of developers have been 'grossly out of compliance' with the rainwater harvesting ordinance for over three years. Similarly, Tucson's native plant protection law has been 'ignored for at least the past 20 years'. I will make sure that everyone follows the law — including the developers (and campaign donors!). We can’t expect citizens to comply with the rules when the big boys don't."
