Along with a decent mention from TucsonNewsNow's Bud Foster, here's a direct quote from Arizona Daily Star:
“The Pima County [AZ] Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a non-binding resolution on Tuesday that was backed by a coalition of area religious leaders opposed to SB 1070 or who are part of the Pima County Interfaith Council.
About 40 people from the group attended Tuesday’s board meeting, asking the supervisors to back a measure similar to one passed by Tucson City Council more than a year ago.
The Rev. Randy Mayer, with The Good Shepherd United Church of Christ [Sahuarita, AZ], said he has been lobbying the board for more than a year to pass the measure.
He said passage of the measure marks ‘a new day’ for Pima County, adding that the county now will be able to distance itself from those at the Legislature who passed SB 1070. ‘We can set ourselves apart,’ he said. ‘We are going to do everything we can to welcome you and treat you with dignity…’ ”
Awhile ago we asked you to mark your calendars for Sunday, March 9th.
