Please pass this message along to your community leaders in Arizona (original message below). It should especially be meaningful to neighborhoods in Phoenix interested in taking their respective battles off of the home turf and saving exorbitant legal fees down the road. Similar battles have been mounted in response to redevelopment of central neighborhoods like Willow, Coronado, Biltmore, CenPho, Arcadia, and Encanto; as well as newly developing areas like Desert Ridge and Desert Hills. If you oppose unplanned sprawl and support neighborhood/community rights, this is your chance to speak out!
Catherine and I have already contributed generously, but we will match other funds (resulting from this email) up to a total contribution of $1,000. Plus, I'll personally see that any neighborhood or sympathetic organization that raises $1,000 or more on our behalf receives a press release and other promotion of their efforts. Thanks to Randy and Jen's passion for this cause, we've already gained the attention of the local media: http://www.kpho.com/video
Please help however you can, whether for principle or to forgive any long forgotten debts to us. I copied only personal friends and family on this email because I knew you would at least make it this far before deciding how to respond.
