Tucked away in the corner of Scottsdale City Hall is a modest office inhabited by a seemingly modest man — but a man who says his mission in life is to serve.
Turns out that idea of public service is more than just a soundbite or the most recent nomenclature of the municipal leadership arena because for the last 30 years the drumbeat of those marching orders is what Scottsdale City Manager Jim Thompson has been walking to.
Current and previous colleagues of Mr. Thompson say he walks the walk.
“The more I interact with Jim Thompson the more impressed I am with his knowledge and expertise in city government,” said Scottsdale Councilman Guy Phillips in an April 17 statement.
“Having worked closely with Jim since he arrived in Casa Grande, I can tell you this guy is a serious do’er. Jim gets things done.”
