On May 31, I started a new job as a national political writer for Bloomberg News. I will be based out of Arizona and will primarily cover state and municipal government issues in Arizona and surrounding states with a national context. The job provides me with the opportunity to work for one of the most dynamic media companies out there today and to continue to write about many of the topics I have covered here, including immigration and prisons.
I regret that in this new position that I will not be able to continue to write CrawfordOnDrugs. The blog will be put on an indefinite hiatus, though I may update it with links to relevant stories I write in the future. In the meantime, you will be able to find my stories on Bloomberg.com, in Bloomberg Businessweek magazine and, through the Bloomberg News wire, in newspapers around the country.
Thanks for reading,
Amanda J. Crawford
