Affordable living / studio / HOME for artists. Are you a working artist? Do you want to be? Are a do'er that is interested in an affordable living arrangement amongst other producing creatives?

This is Sam! I was walking around Main St yesterday and heard some Persian beats jamming on some bass heavy speakers. I stopped into Five Star DJ to see Sam, former DJ, mixing it up on a cd mixer. He told me of the old days when he used to DJ. In his country they would use cassettes with variable speeds. Pretty neat. Now he and his partner have opened a DJ equipment store on Main St. Thanks Sam for bringing your culture and small business spirit to Downtown Mesa! http://www.5stardjcenter.com commUNITY djequipment

In 2012, myself and a few pioneering green minded folk were working away and trenching waterways for the Mesa Urban Garden. At the same time, right Nextdoor, the Meraz family was hard at work modernizing and making functional, an old building in Downtown Mesa, Arizona on the south side of Main Street. With the love, creativity, recipes and family bond of Marco, Luisa, Sebastian, Edmundo and of course, world famous chef Jinette Meraz, Republica Empanada was born! This restaurant has fast become the place to be in the east valley with its savory and sweet empanadas, sopas, y otras cosas deliciosa de Latin America. They have been a shining light in the downtown area and for all of Mesa, Arizona. It's small business, hard working people like this that has made Mesa a great place to be. Bravo Meraz family and Viva Mesa! Support local business. Try their great food. http://republicaempanada.com link: https://youtu.be/bnArJxxyHCU i republicaempanada commUNITY azfoodie empanada

I remember when Jarrod Martinez first opened his front door. I was working with the 460 something businesses on Main during light rail construction and weekly I'd walk into the stores just to say hi. Jarrod's was an empty concrete room with glass Jewelry cases and a few paintings. We talked a little and he told me his grand vision which at that time, seemed far away. The place now is full of interesting pieces, interesting people and of course coffee and tea. Thank you Jarrod's Coffee, Tea & Gallery for making the street a little more alive. Thank you for sticking it out and bringing your concept to a reality. We all know, it's the people and small businesses on Main Street that make @downtownmesa so wonderful. Thank you for the smiles and positivity . Jarrod's is now open Monday through Saturday! See Facebook, instagram or website for hours. http://jarrodscoffeetea jarrodscoffee commUNITY @jarrodscoffeeteaandgallery

A big thanks to Michelle Mushee for the opportunity to see one of my favorite people Vicente Fox Quesada and even more importantly Marta Sahagún. She is a powerhouse, una mujer poderosa y very nice! These two have so much to offer the world and I'm glad I got to be in their presence. What a day of many learnings. Thank you to my business partner David Carrizosa for hanging out with me. I am so fortunate to have friends in every sector of business and every walk of life. I was amazed at the business done in ancillary products around cannabis. The 2017 SW Cannabis Expo was pretty exciting and full of mechanical products, scientific products, electronics, textiles and knowledge based industries. All I can say is, business opportunities!

Every 2nd Friday in Downtown Mesa, Az is a fun adventure with creative themes. Its fun thinking about how Main St has and hasn't changed over the years. I often laugh at the funny way our downtown crew met and how things came about. I always have fun and see a lot of people I know. I feel great seeing such a large crowd walking up and down main and knowing that it was all driven by a small groundswell of us who showed up and tried. Thanks to all that have put themselves out there. Thanks to: All the small businesses that extended their hours and hosted events and artists. All the residents and neighbors that collaborated on projects and gave your time. All those who believed in our grass roots placemaking efforts that is breathing life into Mesa's Downtown. Thanks to Suzanne Woodford for continually organizing this event on your own time. http://2ndfridaynightout.com link: https://youtu.be/q3T0Zfk_wcE V iheartmesa commUNITY

What’s New in Downtown Mesa, Arizona? We had a busy summer of new businesses opening up in our little corner of heaven. At least 10 new businesses opened their doors and you may or may not know all of them. So now that the weather is nice, it's time to go explore. We’ll be stopping in at some of the new businesses for an insiders look as well as highlighting all of the awesomeness of Main Street along the way. Everyone that comes out will receive a swag bag of assorted items from downtown businesses... so don't miss out! We will meet at The Organic Bean Cafe at 2:45pm and will start the walk at 3pm. OBC closes at 3pm, so if you want coffee for the walk, get there before they close. We will end the journey at Oro Brewing Company for some food and beverages.

Thank you Jason Wiseman for inviting me to financial knowledge. My favorite line of today: "The banks are criminal institutions designed to steal your money and make you feel good about it. What is the interest rate on a savings account? 1%. what is the interest on a credit card? 20% average? If you were to put $100 in a savings account they give you $1 at the end of the year. Then they sign you up for a credit line lend you your money back and charge you $20. If you want to go to the parking lot I will give you $1 all day for your $20" FinancialPlan

We had a long meeting of the Maricopa Integrated Health System Governing Council last night. It made me think of many many things. Who is it that MIHS serves? How do we transition to value based service vs volume based services. How are our Community health Centers placed and how do we get the word out? It's an exciting time in population health management. It is especially exciting for me because in my role as a community economic developer, personal health and wellness is directly tied to the zip code you live in or were raised in. Investments in public health in my eyes are an investment in the community and the areas in which I work in need strong investment. Thanks MIHS.

Today is national CoffeeWithACop day. I stopped by to ask about how the City of Mesa Police Department was reaching out to communities who don't generally make contact except for in emergency cases. I saw quite a few officers talking with interested citizens who had wandered in for morning coffee. New Mesa police chief, Chief Bautista, is a strong believer in community policing and making police a part of the neighborhoods in which they work so face time and relationship value is built between officers and citizens. Has anyone ever gone on a ride along with an officer? Thanks to everyone in district three who showed up and those that shared kind words with me. iheartmesa
