I am honored to be elected to lead Scottsdale as Mayor. Thank you for supporting our vision of a city where the citizens are heard, where development is done responsibly and where families can thrive. I will work every day to make Scottsdale a better city for you and your family.
My opponent and I disagreed during this campaign on issues, but we agreed Scottsdale residents want City Hall to be responsive. I hope we can find a way to work together to support the city we both love.
Congratulations to councilmembers-elect Betty Janik, Tammy Caputi and Tom Durham. I look forward to working alongside the entire City Council. If we act wisely, our community can be healthy and our economy will rebound from the COVID-19 pandemic. We will listen and lead humbly, as we craft General Plan 2035 to reflect the residents' voices. If we remain true to our values, we will ensure this great city remains a place of fellowship and opportunity.
I am proud to serve as Mayor and look forward to fulfilling that commitment everyday.
With a grateful heart,
