UA prof and mayoral candidate has the vision to push Tucson to greatness

The mayoral elections are right around the corner, in just four short weeks. One of the leading candidates in the race, UA political science professor and Democrat Tom Volgy, is a candidate with the right vision for the city of Tucson and mind you, this sentiment is coming from a registered Republican.

Tom Volgy received his doctorate in political science from the University of Minnesota. Dr. Volgy has been a Tucson citizen for 32 years and is well attuned to the needs of the city. He became a professor of political science at the UA, specializing in all facets of government and international affairs. He is also the executive director of the International Studies Association, which is a worldwide forum for international affairs scholars and policy-makers. Additionally, he has written four books and over 35 articles relating to his specialty. [Read article]
