Marty Chavez would love it here. I arrived at about 10 a.m. and went immediately to my daughter Noelle's house in Chandler, about 17 miles south and east of the airport. I hadn't been to see her little home before. We had good Japanese food and a little father daughter conversation. It was fun. She is like many young people today who want to live in a place with sunshine. Who can blame her. (Although 119 degrees is a lot of sun)
Then I had to head for Wickenburg, Arizona where my meeting is being held. I zeroed the trip meter on the rental car at the restaurant to track my mileage. It was 43.5 miles before I left the metro area of Phoenix. I was dumbfounded by the additional overpasses and frontage roads being constructed along I-17 towards Flagstaff. It will only be a matter of time......
So I decided that Marty Chavez should come and run in Arizona for the Senate. He would understand this place.
His kind of sprawl development is unabated and unsustainable but they would probably embrace him here.
