You may already know that I’ve filed my statement of organization to run for mayor of Scottsdale.
I’m going to continue posting articles and observations here at ScottsdaleTrails. However, I may not be posting as frequently, and I’ve been advised that any content relating to my campaign should be confined to my campaign website, ScottsdaleCitizen.com. Please take a moment to look at it and bookmark for future reference.
The last eight years or so have not been good for the long-term future of Scottsdale, and we’ve seen many issues that are creating real problems right now. I’ve been heavily involved in advocating the residents’ positions in these issues, and I will continue to do so in spite of big money working against us.
My first big hurdle is getting on the ballot for the August primary. To do that, I must collect 1000 signatures on nominating petitions by the end of May. That’s a lot of signatures and not a lot of time to get them.
If you have the ability to organize even a small group of your neighbors and friends who live and vote in Scottsdale I can meet with them and you to discuss how you can help, and I will bring my petitions. If you can circulate and fill a petition (only 15 signatures), that will help greatly, too. I am glad to bring one to you or mail it if that’s easier.
If we work together we can restore leadership to the Scottsdale City Council, and insure that Scottsdale remains a “Most Livable City.”
