Hi Mr. Mayor, I would love to help you with this initiative...unfortunately several weeks ago a felon (illegal alien) stole my laptop.
Any chance you could do something about these felons littering our streets? There are several dozen, probably more, in plain sight on major Mesa streets every morning.
Log out of Facebook and look out your windows once in awhile - Mesa is a REAL, not virtual, city...and it needs help!
"Mesa voters have a reputation for saying no at the polls, Smith said, but he considers that unfair. "
Why is voting unfair? Because it excludes felons and illegal aliens? Why should they have a voice in our community? Become a law-abiding citizen, learn to speak English, and then you can vote. That IS fair.
Scott Smith is no Steven Jobs.[rolleyes]
Ok genius freethinker, if you can log in and comment on this article you obviously got past the stolen laptop and can participate. Civil dialog may be beyond your capacity but think about it.

Before accusing others of not being civil, how about you grow a pair and stop the unprovoked insults.
That way you won't look like an ignorant hypocrite on a public comment board. ;)
Will Mesa Mayor Smith also be sponsoring an "yMESA" (en Espanol, por favor) website for the thousands and thousands of illegal aliens that moved to Mesa when it was a "SANCTUARY CITY" ????
Nice try Leon, but it would actually be "iMesa" in Spanish too. Your use of "yMesa" would imply "and Mesa" instead of referring to the "i" of "internet" where the term for the most part originates from. Internet is "internet" in Spanish as well. What is most poorly reflected in such commentary is how you tout yourself as a Spanish speaker yet are unable to achieve what you originally sought out to do, which is to demean the very culture from where you come from.
From the Heart (ab imo pectore),As a lover of the Latin language, you of all people should be acquainted with the "i latina" and the "y griega" being used interchangeably in different parts of Spain. I hope that your personal attack was just due to the "passion of the moment" and not just more "MSNBC-ish ATTACK DOG RHETORIC". We were all hoping that the sad events in Tucson had calmed down unnecessary and hurtful "hate speech" of the past (on both sides). Can't we all just get along as Rodney King so eloquently stated.
Nice try again Leon, but your letter derivations don't apply with usage as understood by Mayor Smith's usage of "iMesa". That is unless you're trying to convolute the issue by selectively choosing the letter that should be used in Spanish for what has been accepted as "internet" for the "i" in "iMesa." It might be true if we were talking about a word that existed many years ago when usage was more interchangeable, and not the modern era, from whence the word "internet" has surfaced. As I stated previously, "internet" is internet in Spanish and not "ynternet" as you're claiming, which makes your argument all the more silly. Now if you're were referring to the name Ybarra, then yes you'd have some justification.
'i' have a vision of Mesa Mayor Smith.
It is a city where I can drive down Gilbert or Broadway and not have to look at dozens upon dozens of illegal alien criminal invaders standing around, throwing trash on the ground, relieving themselves against neighborhood walls.
Make the entire city of Mesa illegal alien free zone. It won't even take technology to achieve this. Just use existing laws. Well you could call up Sheriff Joe on your iPhone, request ongoing sweeps until the last illegal heads out of Dodge.
I share that vision, Viva.
Unfortunately, that's all it seems to be right now...a vision.
