Jo Ella Hoye (left) and Laura Smith-Everett have announced plans to run for the District 17 House seat occupied by Rep. Tom Cox, who is running for the state senate next year.The 2020 election cycle may be more than a year away, but Republican Rep. Tom Cox’s announcement that he plans to seek a move to the upper chamber next year has set off a flurry of early activity.In the hours after Cox’s announcement that he will seek the District 10 Senate seat held by fellow Republican Mary Pilcher-Cook since 2009, two Democrats have announced plans to seek his District 17 House seat.Laura Smith-Everett, who lost a close race to Cox in 2018, was the first to make her plans public. And Tuesday morning Jo Ella Hoye, a prominent volunteer with Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, announced she would file for the race as well.While neither have held elected office to date, both Smith-Everett and Hoye have been involved in public affairs. Smith-Everett was an intern for Sen. Kit Bond of Missouri during her time as a student at William Jewell College.In addition to her work with Moms Demand Action, Hoye has worked as an analyst in the Johnson County Manager’s Office.In her campaign announcement, Smith-Everett said she was driven to address some of the policies enacted during the Brownback administration that she believes have had a negative effect on her community.“Ultra conservative Republicans in Topeka are out of touch with the citizens of House District 17,” Smith-Everett said. “I am confident that the people of our district support a shared vision of government that works for all of us and will vote to restore our state after nearly a decade of cuts in programs and services for Kansans.”For her part, Hoye said she hopes to put her background in advocacy work in recent years to use in the statehouse.“Kansans want their leaders to come together to find commonsense solutions in order to provide the best quality of life for everyone in our state,” said Hoye. “The knowledge and experience that I’ve gained as a local government professional and community advocate have positioned me to be the right person to represent the citizens of the 17th District by listening and working hard to make their voices heard in Topeka.”
CBRE has been awarded the marketing assignment for The Campus at Tucson International in Tucson, Ariz. The six-building, 253,393-square-foot business park campus sits on 17.6 acres two blocks from Tucson International Airport. The property was formerly home to Texas Instrument’s operations in Tucson.William DiVito and Jesse Blum with CBRE’s Tucson office will handle the marketing of the property for owner HSL Properties of Tucson. DiVito and Blum also brokered the transaction for HSL, which purchased the property in September from Texas Instruments of Dallas, Texas for an undisclosed price. HSL is currently making improvements to the property with plans to reposition and bring new life to the project and the Tucson market.“We believe Tucson is a market that can and will attract major employers with the right kind of real estate. The Campus at Tucson International is that kind of real estate,” said Humberto Lopez, president of HSL Properties. “Our goal is to attract companies that will add value to the Tucson market in the form of jobs and commerce.” “This campus once housed over 1,400 employees,” said Omar Mireles, HSL’s executive vice president. “Our vision is to see that happen again. We are committed to bringing new businesses and the jobs that come with them to Tucson.”“The Campus at Tucson International is unique in that it offers a campus environment with amenities and infrastructure that are matched only by the properties that currently house Honeywell, Ratheon and IBM,” said CBRE’s DiVito. “It’s really well positioned to attract quality tenants and we’ve already experienced a flurry of interest from a variety of potential users after officially being on the market only a few weeks.” “We’ve had interest from companies looking to utilize the property for uses ranging from basic manufacturing to high-tech optics, and even back-office and data-center operations,” said CBRE’s Blum. “Some users have inquired about the entire property, while others have interest in portions of the property. That’s the great thing about The Campus at Tucson International; there are so many possibilities for potential users which opens us up to a really wide variety of user types.”The Campus at Tucson International is a multi-use site that includes offices, labs, a conference center with a full commercial grade kitchen and cafeteria, as well as manufacturing and warehouse space. The multi-building campus is serviced by a sophisticated on-site central utility core that offers seven megawatts of power, which makes it an attractive option for users with significant power needs.

Global GDP growth could soften to 1.7% this year as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, according to consultant IHS Markit. That represents a significant fall from the earlier forecast of 2.5%Scott Hazelton, Managing Director Construction Consulting at IHS Markit, speaking at the Off-Highway Research breakfast briefing on 11 March during ConExpo, said the outbreak would impact on all regions, with US GDP growth falling from 2.1% to 1.8%, and Europe from an already modest 0.9% to close to zero growth. Scott Hazelton, IHS Markit, speaking at ConExpo 2020.“The biggest problem is Europe”, said Hazelton, “which we now think will go into recession.” He emphasised that the rapidly changing picture on the outbreak made forecasting very difficult.On US construction he said an already slow market was likely to face a deeper decline, and warned that lower oil prices could have a significant impact on oil and gas activity in both the US and Canada.Also at the breakfast briefing, Chris Sleight, Managing Director of Off-Highway Research (OHR), said the virus could trigger a short, sharp downturn in construction equipment sales.“What we will see as a result of the virus is a sudden dip in sales mid-year”, said Sleight, “but we think it will bounce back and be a temporary thing. We are already seeing stimulus efforts [in China].”OHR was already forecasting a decline in construction equipment sales in North America this year, with demand levels hanging on what happens with infrastructure spending and any potential Trump push on infrastructure. “We will wait and see”, said Sleight, “Without infrastructure spending, the US will head into a cyclical decline.”This year is also likely to see a reduction in sales in Europe, said Sleight, although there is a potentially brighter outlook on infrastructure; “We see a market pivoting to infrastructure in Europe…We don’t see too many reasons for panic about the European construction equipment market.”
Brian Olson organized the gathering and drew heavily on lessons learned from the 2008 anti-annexation fight. Residents who lived mostly outside Soldotna City limits shared ideas about how to express their opposition, but for now Olson says the focus is on one-to-one communication… Olson: “Well the City employees, that’s their job. That’s what they do to put beans on the table. They’re professionals in their field and they’re just doing what their employment tells them to do, so they’re off the table. Nobody should be saying anything about the City employees. But the politicians are fair game.” FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享A grassroots meeting at the Soldotna Regional Sports Complex last night kicked off the organized effort to prevent Soldotna’s annexation. The City of Soldotna hasn’t yet announced any formal plans to annex land, but the topic was aired as an educational item. Olson urged residents opposed to annexation to stick together, regardless of the specific areas which may face annexation. Olson: “Right now we’re having volunteers gather petitions that we can present at a later date to the council, saying we are opposed to annexation. That’s going to be one of the first ones.” Olson was also quick to encourage property owners to direct their frustration away from City Administrators… For more on the group, visit their Facebook page.

© Plovdiv24.bgThe mayor of Plovdiv Zdravko Dimitrov commented today on the five bids submitted for valuation of the quantity bills for the completion of the Hristo Botev Stadium, a reporter told Plovdiv24.bg.As we informed our readers yesterday, the lowest offer is worth BGN 38.9 million without VAT, and at the same time the state allocated 25 million.Here is what Zico said in front of the camera of Plovdiv24.bg:This is a market study. The companies did it, but the money was given, the offers were different. Maybe the competition will be for the lowest price. We have a duty to do this market research. This does not mean that these companies have won. This is an estimated price. There is nothing wrong, the range is large, as far as I know. Wait for us to announce a competition for the completion of the stadium, to see who will win. What value, what price? We are still very far away. Let’s not look for things where … I don’t want to comment on things that are coming. Whatever I say, you know what it’s about. Once something is started, it will end. They will be taken from somewhere. I wish success to Lokomotiv and Botev in the semifinals and I want to see them again in the Cup final. Ask me such things!Watch in the attached video the whole speech of the mayor on the topic!Plovdiv24.bg broadcast the briefing live.

The Premier League Board has fixed this season’s local derby between Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko for Saturday 6 June despite protests from fans.Fans of the two clubs have raised concerns about the date of the crucial match and have been calling for a change of date.They complain that the Glo Premier League could overshadow the Black Stars joint 2010 Nations Cup/World Cup qualifier against Mali in Bamako a day after.Hearts beat their arch-rivals 1-2 in their corresponding fixture but Kotoko’s recent resurgence has given the tie a new outlook.“We met with the clubs’ representatives and they did not raise any objections to all these, so why all these complains,” PLB boss Abra Appiah“The PLB has a calendar which must be followed to its latter and we discussed all these with the clubs. “It is not as if Abra Appiah just wakes up and formulates the time table for league matches. We are in constant consultations with the Ghana Football Association and other stakeholder.” he added.Source: Ghanasoccernet
