Short Description of Activity

Environmental Day at the Capitol virtual this year – Broads is a co-sponsor. Jenny part of LD1 Team Watershed Group. Prepared two reports and slide to accompany speech to our State Senator Karen Fann. The two reps were a no-show. However, My report will be sent to them by Team Leader Kristen Wolfe. LD1 team leader was Ann Hutchinson. I spoke this morning on Water Sentinels and Broads on the Upper Verde River. Time includes preparing reports, attending a few meetings, and attending virtual events this date.

Reflection/Evaluation

Virtual events included Keynote Speaker Regina Romero, Mayor of Tucson; Civil Engagement Beyond Voting; Climate and Conservation by NCEL (several topics included pollinators, electric vehicles, current environmental bills); listing in on Legislative session, etc. Every year leave this event feeling like it was a waste of time. Karen Fann is nuts. One of the LD1 group spoke to Voter Suppressions Bills – Karen stated as fact that 75 ballots were delivered to a vacant lot in Tucson, 20 ballots to one house, etc. this is why they are investigating voter fraud – but acknowledge Biden won. True, there might be glitches, but really, is there a mailbox at the vacant lot?
