Albert Gallego dies, long time SRPNA leader

TUCSON -- Longtime Santa Rita Park Neighborhood resident and activist Albert Gallego died last night. He had long been ill.

Albert was a solid leader for our neighborhood for many years, and he'll be missed. I learned a lot from Albert, and we'll keep his family in our prayers.

SRPNA is sending our condolences and a card to his wife. We may also take up a collection for Albert's family at our upcoming monthly meeting, Aug 6, 5:30-6:45pm at the Sam Lena Library, 1607 S. 6th Av.

One of our upcoming park and our neighborhood/improvement projects, or perhaps the baseball field near 20th St., should be named after Albert.

Read Albert's obituary.

RTA vote was rigged, says former county staffer

TUCSON -- Reports are coming out claiming the RTA vote may have been rigged by corrupt Pima County elections officials.

The RTA vote is what officials are pointing to for authorization of the very controversial plan to widen 22nd St. through our neighborhood.

There must be an immediate recount of the RTA ballots.
