The group responsible for gathering around 17,000 signatures in December, reportedly operating with a throng of volunteers to accomplish such a feat, paid a professional signature gatherer nearly $60,000, new campaign finance documents show.

In addition, City Councilman Guy Phillips’ wife, Cora, was also paid to gather signatures.

Committee for the Preservation of Old Town Scottsdale was tasked with gathering about 12,000 verified signatures for a referendum petition to fight an approved development, Southbridge Two, which seeks to redevelop portions of Fifth Avenue in downtown Scottsdale.

The group was given about 30 days for their efforts.
