    Dragon's View restaurant
    400 N Bonita Ave
    Tucson, AZ 85745
    Jake Bell

    Jake will be speaking on:

    “Rural broadband & other poor & working class topics”

    “Jake Bell  a business analyst and technical writer with an MBA from Arizona State University’s W. P. Carey School and a BA in Broadcast Journalism from ASU’s Walter Cronkite School. Jake has been a children’s book author, a TV sportscaster, a radio news writer, and a union plumber. He’s a Phoenix activist who co-founded the Phoenix Chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America, and is a member of Living United for CHange in Arizona (LUCHA) and Industrial Workers of the World – Union 530.

    Most importantly for this job, Jake is a single dad who knows what it’s like to make it through an Arizona summer, trying to explain to kids why they can’t turn the air conditioner below 85 because electricity is too expensive.

     As a corporation commissioner, Jake will be dedicated to lowering utility rates for the poor and middle class, expanding the reach and usage of solar and wind power in Arizona, encouraging co-ops and publicly owned nonprofit utilities, expanding broadband internet access statewide, and ending the corruption that currently controls every move the Corporation Commission makes.”


    Carolyn’s note: Several Dems running for Corporation Commission along with political newcomer Jake Bell — former Commissioner Sandra Kennedy, former CC candidate Bill Mundell, and newcomer Kiana Sears.
