Phoenix Mayor: 'I'm Tired, and it’s Hard to Focus'

Posted By on Thu, Sep 27, 2012 at 8:56 AM

Turns out our beautiful Noshing dude Adam Borowitz isn't the only person trying to figure out how to live on $4 fucking-bucks a day. (Hunky) Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton (sorry Mayor "I'm a believer in pedestrian areas" Rothschild) is finding himself having the same troubles as Mr. Borowitz:

When local activist groups challenged Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton to live on a food stamp budget for a week to mark Hunger Awareness Month, he took them up on the offer and found out just how hard it was. Stanton kept a diary on the challenge, which allotted him roughly $29 a week, the same amount 1.1 million Arizonans receive from the Supplemental Assistance Nutrition Program (SNAP) each week.

By day four, Stanton noted that he was “tired” and “it’s hard to focus” after leaving the house for work without time to scramble eggs or eat a decent breakfast.
