City Girl

Whom to turn to for answers on solving the state’s current economic woes? How ’bout none other than locally charged scene queen Kimber Lanning?

The prominent Phoenix record-store owner, founder of Local First Arizona, and recently appointed director of the City of Phoenix Development Advisory Board will be sharing solutions for a more fiscally fit state in her upcoming pep talk, “The Upside of a Down Economy: Buying Locally,” part of the Seeking Justice in Arizona fall lecture series at ASU.

“Buying locally creates a sustainable economy,” Lanning said in a recent interview, “and that’s the green way to live.”

Hear Lanning’s lecture at the ASU Memorial Union, Turquoise Room (Room 230).
