    Bump...

    So our family lives in Phoenix District 6. We have a total douche as our representative for City Council, Sal DiCiccio. In the last election for City Council they had a runoff between him and the other candidate because the race was so close, and I had no idea who either one was so we opted not to vote. I have been regretting that decision ever since DiCiccio was elected. I never thought I would have to interact with a City Council member on much of anything, but soon after DiCiccio took office Valley Metro proposed to eliminate the express bus route I used to take to work. I sent his office numerous emails asking him to oppose the reduction, and he was non responsive. Everyone that lived in his district that used the route for commuting was urged to contact him. We sent him petitions signed by all the riders. A couple people even went to some of his community meetings to talk with him about it. DiCiccio brushed them off and said he wanted to repeal the food tax. We also had a pretty cool neighborhood circulator that ran through our neighborhood and throughout Ahwatukee. I would say we live in one of the oldest, probably lowest income areas of Ahwatukee and DiCiccio worked with Valley Metro and a coalition of citizens from Ahwatukee (which I am almost certain didn't include anyone from our neighborhood) to figure out a revised route for the neighborhood circulator that basically eliminated service for our neighborhood. I'm lucky that I have a car, but now the closest bus stop to our home is a little over a mile. I know, some of you are probably like, whatever, but when you move to an area based on the mass transit infrastructure it is a big deal when it is taken away.

    Everyone I know that has worked with DiCiccio said he is the worst, and pretty much just wants to eliminate all city services and privatize everything. He is an obstructionist, and votes no on issues where all other city council members vote yes just to say, "Look, I voted no", even though it doesn't mean anything. DiCiccio's reelection campaign is primarily funded by lobbyists and developers. DiCiccio is a rich former developer who decided to run for office. Oh, and he's also supported by the Tea Party.

    I've been looking forward to the upcoming election to cast my vote for Karlene Keogh-Parks, who is running against DiCiciccio. Lately I have seen a bunch of signs popping up on public property where the election banners are, that say Developers Support Sal DiCiccio and Lobbyists Support Sal DiCiccio. I've been chuckling to myself when I pass those signs, but my wife is like, "What's that all about? I can't figure out if this is for or against DiCiccio's campaign." I found out in an article this morning that the signs were put up by the public service unions since DiCiccio is obviously opposed to all unions and any cost of living increases for public service workers like firefighters and police. I'm really bummed since I think the money from the unions could have been used a little better to promote Keogh-Parks or just put up signs that are clearer about either the positive aspects of Keogh-Parks or the negative aspects of DiCiccio.

    http://www.azcentral.com/community/p...igns-beat.html

    Anways, TL;DR, if you live in Phoenix and in District 6, please vote for Karlene Keogh-Parks.

    You can get discount Arizona State Fair tickets prior to October 10th if you use the code phxcc13 at azstatefair.com. (15% of proceeds go to the Phoenix Children's Chorus.) FYI if anyone is going to any shows there this year.

    I know this is super delayed, I just don't read the forums that much anymore. Diciccio doesn't fully oppose the expansion, he just opposes it north of Pecos Rd. The only reason Diciccio opposes the 202 expansion on the north side of Pecos is because he has a major stake in the property that would be leased for the expansion on the Gila River Reservation south of Pecos off 40th St, so he is set to make a shit ton of money if they move it there. Sign up for the District 6 email newsletter and you will get weekly vitriolic rants. Good times.

    Not quite Phoenix, but my co-worker said the Safeway at Hayden and Chapparal (sp?) in Scottsdale has a bar inside the grocery store. Apparently it is always packed when my co-wrker shops there.

    There is a new Whole Foods that opened at 20th St and Highland in Town and Country mall that has a bar. The Whole Foods at the 101 and Ray also has a bar, and it's almost always packed around happy hour and on Saturdays. They have one of the best beer selections in the Phoenix area.

    I just drove by that the other day! It's so big and bright. My kids were all excited and wanted to go in, but I was too hungry (for restaurant food) to stop. haha, we did end up at AJ's though because they have great prepared food reasy-to-go.

    A non-profit I support (Phoenix Conservatory of Music) is hosting a screening of Back to the Future on Sunday October 20th at the Deer Valley AMC @ 4pm. There is a Doc Brown look alike contest (paging Ivy) and the Arizona DeLorean club has been invited. The students will perform a couple of songs in the courtyard prior to and after the movie.

    Tickets are $15 and you're supporting a great cause - to help give subsidized music lessons to students.

    For more information visit www.pcmrocks.com.
