Local politics can be difficult to follow. It is comparatively less covered than national and even state politics. Those who are NIMBYs (Not In My Backyard) tend to have an asymmetric advantage when it comes to influence and knowledge of the ins-and-outs of Tempe.

We seek to level the playing field by providing resources and articles. We will be providing info on who is running for city government and how their plans stack up. We will provide articles about current city officials and policies.

By leveling the playing field, we hope to help better engage all Tempe residents so that a select few are not calling the shots.


Here are some good videos on urban policy:

Vox— The high cost of free parking

Vox— Don’t blame scooters. Blame the streets.
