you first elected me, you knew I would be your advocate on the phoenix
city council exposing government waste and promoting fiscal
responsibility. That has always meant being vigilant on issues that
affect our wallets, our quality of life and our personal safety.
If there was ever a time to sound the alarm, it is now!
Mayor Stanton and the Council will be taking $30 BILLION dollars of
your hard earned money to pay for a massive public transportation system
that is already operating in the red.
reality is that it is too inefficient requiring taxpayers to fund about
80% of the system. Yes, it only recovers about 20% while you and your
family subsidize the rest!
we don't act to stop this now, the Mayor and a slim majority on the
council will ramp up another slick political campaign to persuade you to
spend $30 BILLION over the next three decades - spending not just paid
for by you, but by your children and grandchildren!
the days ahead, we need to prepare and mobilize against what will be
the single most largest spending spree in Phoenix history! We must do
everything we can as taxpayers to slow or even derail this runaway train
from its tracks.
call the Mayor and other members of the Council and ask them to reject
the recommendation by the Citizen’s Committee on the Future of Phoenix
Transportation. We simply cannot afford spending our money and our
children's money on a system that is unsustainable.
