"Virginia is truly committed to the unique desert environment of Scottsdale.
Between helping form the McDowell Mountain Preserve to her vision of a Southwest Urban Forest, I can truly say that Virginia would improve the quality of life in Scottsdale for years to come."

"As a former executive at one of Arizona’s largest energy companies and former Director of the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality, I understand what it is like to lead large, complicated organizations with competing priorities. With Virginia's business and public sector background, and her proven leadership track record, I know she has what it takes to work with others to articulate a clear vision of the future and to successfully lead Scottsdale
through the complicated realities of local policy that will inevitably arise."

"Virginia brought the Scottsdale Chamber of Commerce back to a place of
viability through her experience, leadership and the ability to build coalitions. I have full faith in her ability to improve upon the progress Scottsdale has made. She is the perfect choice for Mayor for Scottsdale."
