Gene Holmerud attended, and argued for smart spending within the Phoenix Budget of 2012 and 2013. He argued for Sustainable Living that has the economic impact of attracting businesses that want to attract people that are attracted to areas built for sustainable living. In other words, their needs feed on each other. The meeting was video recorded and may be seen at http://phoenix.gov/citygovernment/phx11/index.html, then clicking "Most Recent" then clicking the title for "Budget Hearing at Neighborhood Resource Center" (April 5, 2012).
Another District 8 meeting will occur Monday morning at the Devonshire Senior Center at 9AM. Since it is all about money, aka the Bottom Line, this is where we need to put our emphasis.
