Though 2019 was supposed to be a quiet year for election politics, the battle for light rail has made it anything but in Phoenix.

Last week two opposing views from Ahwatukee residents illustrated how the campaign for and against Proposition 105, the so-called “Building a Better Phoenix” prop, has heated up with Aug 27 election just weeks away.

Proposition 105 would stop all light-rail project expansion plans and not allocate funds for light rail or fixed rail line transit systems after Aug. 27.

It would redistribute revenue designated for light-rail extensions to other infrastructure projects, primarily street improvements.
