You may know that I grew up in the car business here in Scottsdale. So I know how important it is to keep up with the repairs and maintenance of vehicles. Car and truck dealerships like the one I used to run recommend a schedule of maintenance to not only minimize costly repairs, but to also maximize driver safety. Voters haven’t passed a significant bond proposal in almost 20 years. It is critical that we invest in our city’s infrastructure. When we do that, it protects our quality of life, keeps us safe and helps attract and retain businesses that fuel our economy and generate jobs. Voting YES on the three bond questions will help us approve the bond proposal, which will create the kinds of experiences our visitors enjoy and encourage them to return for vacations and professional outings. I am proud about how our city is evolving. Many people, both past and present, deserve a lot of credit for their vision and dedication to making Scottsdale the special place it is today. Now it is up to us to continue that commitment. Your mail-in ballot will be mailed to you October 9th. I ask you to join me and my City Council colleagues, who unanimously support the bond proposal, in voting YES on Questions 1, 2 and 3.
