Phillips: I will continue to stand up for your rights, fight on your behalf

As offered by the editor of the Scottsdale Independent, I write this article to let you know my focus and vision for Scottsdale in 2016.

I ran for office almost four years ago because I was sick and tired of watching Scottsdale go down the tubes because of our elected officials.

Sadly, like you, I still wake up every morning and shake my head at the disappointing maneuvers by certain politically motivated council members in Scottsdale.

Yes, you put me here because you wanted me to shake things up at city hall.  Believe me, I have!

If you follow any of the council meetings at city hall you know that I am usually alone in my dissent toward their questionable (at best) policies.  However, I did manage to  bring to your attention the folly of the 2015 bond election as a “do or die” vote for Scottsdale.  You saw through all the smoke and realized it was just another tax grab for  the benefit of special interests.  Together, we won one for the citizens!

Yes, I will continue to support, encourage and advocate for tourism events that make it possible for Scottsdale to enjoy high quality amenities and keep our property taxes low.

Yes, I will continues to right the wrongs, speak out against tax increases, overreaching height and density projects, advocate for residents, small business owners and of course exposing the special interest agendas that help one group at the detriment of another.

Yes, I will continue to fight against the “politically correct” politicians that continue to buckle under pressure from special interest minorities that espouse “critical needs” such as the ridiculous LGBT (lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender) ordinance that has the potential to cripple small business, threaten religious persuasion and bankrupt individuals for following their own religious convictions.

Should I be re-elected as your representative on the Scottsdale City Council, one thing will remain constant; I will continue to stand up for your rights and fight on your behalf.
