Scottsdale is the result of forward-thinking leaders at critical points of its history. Leaders like Herb Drinkwater and Jim Bruner saw what Scottsdale could become and did what was necessary to ensure its future.
The citizens of Scottsdale want to continue electing leadership that promotes the city as a destination, a place where families want to move, companies want to locate, and people from all over the world want to visit. We have reaped the benefits of forward-thinking leadership, and we have no intention of stopping any time soon.
This is why Bob Littlefield and the culture of “no” is so problematic for Scottsdale’s future. We didn’t become the city we are today because our past leaders said “No!” to everything.
It’s because they figured out a way to say yes to possibilities and potential — that does not mean “yes” to everything.
