It was awesome to give a presentation w/ my friends at the reciprocity collective {who do outreach w/ #unhoused folks in #denver} to a students from ⁦@DePaulU⁩ on #policy #advocacy & what it can look like when you center #communitypower #copolitics@ProgressNowCO
There’s a beautiful thing that happens when we build policy with people most impacted, & leaders who understand social determinants of health, & students, & direct service providers. #copolitics #denverliving shout out to Amanda Orta - who runs programming for COVIVO #policy
Chicago has very similar niche #housing issues as #Denver - a group of parents from south side built policy development w/ #workingparents in Denver last yr - we convened it, it’s awesome to see parents & young ppl advocating for complex housing issues. In their communities.

The Environmental Protection Agency (@EPA) approved a nearly $700 million plan on Thursday to remove all lead water pipes in the Denver area, saying the local water utility's approach to reducing lead levels is successful and moving quickly. Image
Testing revealed that Denver's water contained high levels of lead a decade ago. In response, local officials promised in 2020 to replace 64,000 to 84,000 lead pipes in 15 years, which is a relatively quick pace.
In the meantime, they have promised to distribute lead-removing filters to residents in order to prevent lead poisoning. The utility has already dug up 15,000 lead pipes.

Thankful to see Gianna Horton from the Denver Justice Project & @intrfthalliance and their great questions to the candidates for the Independent Monitor position.

Have you heard of the candidates?…

They are going in. #denverliving #copolitics
Shara Smith coming through @intrfthalliance with some great questions:

“What do you believe is the role of the independent monitor of ensuring the safety of marginalized groups? “
Candidate Liz Castle says we should have police & law enforcement make better connections to communities, not all communities are the same and need different approaches.

Mary Opler is speaking about #ClubQ & how hate crimes have sky rocketed, that Denver can do more.

Home builder commentary from our survey this month was about as negative as I've seen to date. Here's some of the market color that jumped out...
#OklahomaCity builder: "Biggest challenge is your customers who just closed their home and see you drop prices by $30,000."
#Jacksonville builder: "Buying land at the top of the market and having to pull every incentive lever to sell is not a recipe for success. We'll cut starts ~60% to 70% in 2023."

“Housing is significantly affected by these higher rates.”
-Jay Powell today about the Fed’s impact on housing

Every month our team surveys 1,000+ agents across the US on what they're seeing in their local markets.

Short 🧵 on local housing markets from our monthly survey:
#Houston, TX: “Home prices have most first-time home buyers priced out of home ownership. It's even worse with the higher interest rates decreasing what the buyers can qualify for.”
#Denver, CO: “Cost of living [and] interest rate [increases] are keeping most buyers from buying.”

So far the drug market in July is SUPER rough, across the whole country and all classes of substances. Alerts are nested in this thread. #testit
One of the biggest things we're seeing nationwide is that MDA is being sold as MDMA with increasing regularity. MDA (sass) is dosed around 30-50 mg lower than MDMA. Taking too high of a dose of MDA or MDMA can increase your risk of overheating or electrolyte imbalance.
From #losangeles: Dipentylone sold as MDMA. Overamping (taking too much of) a cathinone - which are stimulants - may cause dangerous overheating. If you don't know you have it, you can't dose it, and we don't know the dose for dipentylone yet.

We @JBREC just surveyed 400+ flippers about #fixandflip conditions in partnership with Flatiron Realty Capital and @SundaeHQ.
Key takeaway: There is a TON of competition for deals right now.
#LasVegas flipper: “Market is oversaturated with inexperienced investors due to an increase of “gurus.” Supply is low, demand is high, and prices are inflated 20%+ over ARV. Not sustainable.”
#Phoenix flipper: “Phoenix is a very active market with home prices on the rise. The competition is aggressive.”

Lyndon McLeod, 47, shot + killed 5 people + wounded 2 on Monday in #Denver. Police are stating that McLeod "targeted his victims based on previous personal + business dealings." McLeod's social media shows interactions with Richard Spencer, Andy Ngo, Cernovich + far-Right groups.
McLead, under the pen-name Roman McClay, built up a cult-following after publishing the book "Sanction," which blended scenes of murder and sexual assault with Alt-Right and neo-reactionary politics, much akin to the works of figures like Jack Donovan.
Here is one review of the book. "An angry alt-right wolf wrapped in science fiction wool."

Denver Mass Shooter, Lyndon McLeod Aka @roman_mcclay, wrote pieces in the manosphere and collaborated with many fascists like AltRight and male supremacist star, Jack Donovan. McLeod used Fascist symbology frequently in his work...
...It seems @ZubyMusic and Jack Donovan (Operation Werewolfs/Wolves of vinland (fascist group)) have quickly deleted thier podcasts with #Denver mass shooter Lyndon McLeod Aka @mcclay_roman.…
I may have been wrong about @ZubyMusic deleting podcast with McLeod. It seems the pod went private, but is still up. @ZubyMusic had a bunch of his followers hype up McLeod to bring him on his podcast. They praised the mass shooter, before he went on killing spree

Monthly pulse of resale housing market still rapid according to 4,500 agents we just surveyed. Top 3 themes: 1) Bit of market normalizing. 2) Skittish sellers fearing nowhere to move. 3) End of travel ban boosting international buyers. Commentary across the country to follow…
#Houston resale agent: “A lot of people are not listing because they don't know where they are going next. Seems that many people listed too high even for a sellers' market, so I am seeing more price reductions now than earlier in the year.”
#Orlando resale agent: “Our buyer pool is increasing. We see more buyers from the north connecting with us as they plan to visit the area from the fourth quarter to the first quarter of next year.”

Fresh October home builder survey results. Top themes: 1) Builders are finally lifting sales caps (though not all). 2) Lack of lots & land development delays will hold back growth in 2022. 3) Most builders expect prices to keep rising. Market commentary to follow…
#ColoradoSprings builder: “One cautious trend to watch is single-family rental businesses paying more for land than builders. This will suck up trade capacity & supply at a time we can't afford it.”
#Denver builder: “Traffic & sales definitely slowing down, but also following a more seasonal pattern as compared to 2020. Resale inventory is still historically low. Rents are skyrocketing again.”

Ten years after 29-year-old Black man Alonzo Ashley had a fatal encounter with #Denver Police at the @DenverZoo, his family, friends, and the greater community finally received some justice. Check out our video here--->🎥🎞️
Although no criminal charges were ever filed against anyone involved, on October 1, 2021, a water fountain and cooling station were unveiled near the spot where Ashley took his last breaths, and the Denver Zoo finally apologized for the tragedy.
On July 18, 2011, Ashley was at the zoo with his girlfriend. The temperature that day was in the 90s, and by late afternoon, according to Ashley’s girlfriend, he was highly overheated and vomited.
