I have informed the Valley Metro Boards that after 5 1/2 years as CEO, I'll be retiring in the next year. It's been a wonderfully crazy ride, but it's a good time to move on to the next adventure....whatever that might be.
Yeah…..it gets hot in AZ when you park on a concrete slab for awhile! 😳C
I knew it was too good to be true! The Phx Suns playoff curse lives! Ced Ceballos, Danny Manning, Joe Johnson, Boris Diaw…..and now Chris Paul! All critical knocked out via injury, etc during playoff run. It’s tough being a Suns fan! 😞
For me, it was never a question of if, but when Downtown Mesa would experience a Renaissance. It’s fun watching the progress! Downtown Mesa Is on the Cusp of a Second Golden Age phoenixnewtimes.com/news/mesa-down… via @phoenixnewtimes
The great real estate reset: Rethinking how and what we build brook.gs/2YC2fOL via @BrookingsInst. Looking forward to participating on this Brookings panel tomorrow at noon MST.
I know this sounds weird, but thank you Dave Koz, Jonathan Butler and Friends for bringing some wonderful Christmas spirit to this challenging year through your live streamed concert! @DaveKozMusic

With this in mind, I’d like to recognize and celebrate the men and women in our transit operations who have shown up from day one of the crisis at great personal risk to provide uninterrupted bus, rail and paratransit services to the community. You are all heroes in my mind.
There’s a whole lot of debate about schools and other govt services should be open, and who should and who shouldn’t be putting themselves at risk working during this COVID crisis.
Freight train derailment and fire over Salt River in Tempe, AZ. We have light rail bridge adjacent that so far has not been damaged, but service is suspended. Thank heavens no injuries.
Last week we celebrated the activation of 3500 new solar canopies at our Mesa Bus Operations & Maintenance Facility! These panels will save on energy and fuel costs- another step towards creating a more #sustainable system for generations to come.

Shout out to @AmericanAir for resolving issue with ticket refund promptly and satisfactorily! Love to recognize great customer service when it happens!
In the fight against COVID-19, remember those on the front lines keeping critical services going and helping us stay safe: esp medical profs, first responders, and transit operators and technicians who get the others to their jobs. @valleymetro @PhoenixTransit
Bright spot in an otherwise gloomy day! We are very excited! 😊twitter.com/valleymetro/st…s

ASU. Wow. Not sure what Herm was doing this week. Hope he has some magic for this team in the second half. Go Devils!
Great to finalize this grant, which will ensure work on the Tempe Streetcar will continue without any delays as we work toward opening in 2021. twitter.com/FTA_DOT/status…

Once again, a reminder that nobody rides light rail in Phoenix. 🙄twitter.com/valleymetro/st…J
All I could think of is how stupid this is! I mean, he could get hit by a car running across that street!! 😳twitter.com/SimonTVG/statu…l
Mill Ave has reopened in DT Tempe! Good things happen when the community works together to limit impact of construction. azbigmedia.com/lifestyle/cons…

Here’s the proof: Westwood HS 1974. Amazing it took a decade and a #1 hip hop record for the rest of the world to catch up with this trendsetter! 🙄k
Read today where Run DMC started a fashion revolution in 1985 by wearing Adidas b-ball shoes. Heck, I wore same white Adidas and tuxedo to my HS Prom in 1974! Beat ‘em by 11 years and get no credit! Life really is not fair. 🙄
Every truly important march towards progress encounters bumps in the road that require fortitude. Phoenix’s push for accessible light rail for all is no different. Today, we opened the 50th Street & Washington station, providing greater access to the @ability360 community. twitter.com/PhoenixMetroBu…

Btw, any high school ref knows that was double dribble on the play before. That’s unforgivable for a college ref to miss that call.
Please, Jim Nantz. Just shut up.
Merry Christmas, Virginia.
Mass transit is the great equalizer for many people who don't have a voice at City Hall. Folks like seniors, students, the disabled community + those w/"invisible disabilities" like Veterans w/PTSD or those suffering from brain injuries. #EnhancingLives #BuildingCommunities twitter.com/AZCommunities/…
