3 years at Blog for Arizona

Three years ago on Feb. 11, 2014 (in the days of the Obama Administration) I joined the good folks here at Blog for Arizona, after more than  four and a half years blogging at the Tucsoncitizen.com, as “Carolyn’s Community”.  You readers have noticed that I have been tirelessly working on posting progressive events on our image Calendar (upper right corner) or online here:

I am passionate about informing our readers about what our non profits and progressive groups and people are doing here in Arizona.  Some activists in town are telling me that we now have the “best political calendar” online.  Many thanks for the praise.

As for elections, only the Tucson City Council races to report on in 2017:  Ward 3 has (so far) 3 Democrats and 1 Libertarian seeking the open seat (with Karin Uhlich retiring),  and no challengers to date in Ward 5 (Richard Fimbres) or Ward 6 (Steve Kozachik).  Both Councilmen are seeking re-election.

We will keep on blogging…esp. now in the early days of the Trump Administration Stay focused and vigilant, and be aware.
