Scottsdale residents Paula Sturgeon and Sandra Schenkat could often be found debating opposing views on local issues, whether online or at city meetings, but the women have joined together in support of the city’s $319 million bond request.
Schenkat says the bonds will provide funding to upgrade infrastructure and maintain residents’ quality of life.
Sturgeon says the funding will provide services and recreational facilities that residents deserve.
The Scottsdale City Council also unanimously supports thebond request that would pay for 58 potential construction projects, ranging from road improvements to public space upgrades.
Ballots were mailed last week for the Nov. 5 all-mail election.
