We start the show with Jason Ayers of GAP Ministries to talk about the many services they offer including foster care, school partnerships, food for ministries to distribute and more. GAP is hoping to raise $60,000 on Arizona Gives Day so they can buy new vans used in their foster care homes.
Then it’s Goldwater Institute Attorney Jim Manley to talk about why they think Pima County is in violation of the Arizona Constitution’s Gift Clause. Goldwater has sent a letter of intent to sue Pima County because they say there was no transparency or bidding when the county awarded a building and space port pad for lease. Goldwater also says that is not the place of government to aid a private business by putting tax payer money at risk.
