RIP Jonathan Shurberg

We want to take a sad moment to report the passing of a friend and colleague, Jonathan Shurberg. The many beautiful elegies and obituaries being written about him describe his passion, and that is the best thing to remember about Jonathan. He loved people, he loved the cause, and he loved a good fight. He used to comment on this blog under a pseudonym and started his own blog which was quite influential, a sort of behind-the-curtains look at local politics and activism. Jonathan was a force of nature but had been very sick for quite a while with a combination of things that finally took his life.

A fund has been set up to take care of Jonathan's sons. You can donate HERE. Funeral arrangements are pending.

I am turning off comments on this post out of respect.
