I'm moving to be closer to family. I still have my job here in Austin, but the pandemic has reminded me why it's important to be within driving distance of my loved ones. I need to be there if someone were to get sick so I can help take care of them. It's not a money or rent thing for me — it's about going back home and trying to make it there instead of in a city where I don't have any family close by. I'm planning to move in early December.
We are interested in moving due to failed leadership regarding COVID-19 in our state. Arizona has shown its true colors as a Republican-strong state, dismissing masks, opening too early and complete disregard for its people. We don’t feel safe anymore and prefer to live in a more liberal, fact-based environment!
