For District 24 House: Jennifer Longdon

An endorsement for Arizona’s House District 24: Jennifer Longdon would be central-city Phoenix’s greatest ally at the State Capitol.

Endorsement Graphic for Jennifer Longdon

Readers in Arizona’s Legislative District 24: I commend Jennifer Longdon (D) to you for your vote in 2018. We talk a lot about bringing different communities and constituencies together but Jennifer has the track record of actually making that happen. Central-city Phoenix would have no greater ally at the State Capitol.

I support Jennifer Longdon because not only does she know that our cities and communities are stronger when all voices and constituencies are equally represented, she has a proven track record of making that happen. She will be a great asset to Phoenix’s voice at the State Capitol and I enthusiastically support her candidacy.

This Week’s Reading: Bird on Fire

This week, I’m rereading Andrew Ross’s book, “Bird on Fire: Lessons from the World’s Least Sustainable City.”

Bird on Fire coverThis week, I’m rereading Andrew Ross’s book, Bird on Fire: Lessons from the World’s Least Sustainable City. I haven’t really read it since it came out in 2011, just finding snippets to share as needed. It will be interesting to see what (if anything) has changed here since his original assessment.

I’m not bringing this up simply to share what I’m reading or because I wish to agitate the Very Serious People in Phoenix thought circles. There’s something that’s been on my mind and I want to see if there’s historic backing to it or if I’m overthinking it. (More later.)

This might not also be related to my latest contribution to Instagram. (More on that later, too.)
