A Scottsdale mayoral candidate is pushing back against a PR firm that has resurfaced his past opposition to the McDowell Sonoran Preserve.

David Ortega is one of five candidates running for mayor in Scottsdale. Ortega served one term on the City Council from 2000 to 2004 and ran unsuccessfully for mayor in 2004 against incumbent Mary Manross.
