Salette Latas for Oro Valley Council

Tucson, Arizona. Those who followed the 2006 CD 8 election know about Salette Latas, wife of candidate Jeff Latas, in particular the ones who watched the DVD the Latas campaign produced and mailed to thousands of citizens in the district.

Salette gave a talk on the DVD that was so authentic, genuine, and heartfelt that it emitted that resonance certain folks can taste when the truly powerful speak. I'm talking about the personal power of an individual human being, not the wealth and office holding stuff.

Daniel Scarpinato's political notebook today notes that Salette Latas is running for city council in Oro Valley. I have heard this woman speak, so let's discuss Salette for a moment. Unlike your humble blogger, who passed through Webmaster and Web design in his fiasco of a career, Salette became and continues to be a Web designer. She probably IS Vistoso Media. As a political entity, expect powerful Internet presence. She already has it. Google her name. Note the family history. The astute will recognize she is a person to watch.

Salette is smart as hell (not to mention hot). Like Congresswoman Giffords, Salette Latas absorbs and integrates information with firehose velocity, always sharpening the saw. Tomorrow, she will know a little more than she knows today. The best of humanity constantly grows and develops. Salette Latas is part of the solution. As Scarpinato notes, Oro Valley leans right, but I have a sense that she has figured out how to handle this.

Yeah, despite the republican registration advantage, some of the deals gone bad (Walmart; crematorium and alleged mis-management up there gives her quite an opportunity to be elected. I can't imagine that voters there won't embrace some kind of change.

do you seriously believe that "internet presence" will make any difference in a race of Oro Valley council?

Her campaign better be putting at least 100 times the effort into canvassing as it does building "internet presence."

Relax. Web 2.0 guys like me are impressed by Web presence. At NO time did I imply it would get her elected.

She'll get elected doing what people do to get elected. If she doesn't, she won't.

She is superior to her husband and can go where he cannot, and that is not criticizing Jeff.

Ms. Latas has my support. OV needs her.
