Good morning,
Today we have stories about James Scurlock’s brother remembering his brother as an optimistic, goofy, caring person, how evictions could rise following the end of a moratorium against kicking out federally subsidized renters and whether medical marijuana petitioners will meet the threshold to get the long-embattled issue on the ballot.
Reed Moore won’t have a newsletter tomorrow due to the holiday weekend. We’ll be back again Monday July 6.
