OPINION: Bob Littlefield has earned my vote

I usually don’t write letters in support of political candidates, but as a member of the equestrian community in Scottsdale, I am compelled to do so now.

Bob Littlefield, candidate for Scottsdale mayor, deserves the support of all Scottsdale equestrians. If you want to protect our western heritage and preserve equestrian rights in this city, you need to vote for Bob Littlefield in November.

Here are just a few reasons why:

1. He supports the equestrian community. As a Scottsdale city councilman, he helped our neighborhood in our efforts to protect and preserve equestrian trails in our neighborhood park. His mayoral opponent, Jim Lane, also a Scottsdale city councilman at the time, did not.

2. He is a true representative — by the people and for the people. When we first contacted him, he didn’t know us from Adam or Eve. But he was ready to listen to our concerns for our equestrian neighborhood. And he has since reached out to us and other neighbors seeking our opinions on items that concern our neighborhood.

3. He is a straight shooter. Bob Littlefield will tell you straight up how it is. You may not always like what he has to say, but what you are hearing is the truth. The truth isn’t always pretty, but isn’t it really what we all need to hear?

4. He is a man of his word. When Bob Littlefield tells you he will do something you can depend on him to do it! No follow up or reminders required. In today’s society, that is a rare breed.

These are all characteristics of a principled person that we should all want working on our behalf at City Hall. Without Bob Littlefield working to protect the equestrian lifestyle, Scottsdale will lose its unique qualities that help distinguish it from any other Western city.
