12 Years A Slumber
Former 12-year Scottsdale Councilman and failed state legislative candidate Bob Littlefield sounds more like he’s running for Mayor of Detroit than Scottsdale.
Everything is wrong in our fair city, his wonting bemoans. And he alone is the guy to fix it. He, the campaign trailing, self-professing walking combination of Bernie Sanders AND Donald Trump.
We digress in noting the stunning political gymnastics required of someone calling himself cousin to both a redistributionist and repulser of Mexicans, all the while lacking the philosophical consistency of Sanders and the business acumen of Trump.
Yet, Littlefield waxes ineloquent to his audiences, trust him and utopia is just around the bend.
He’ll stop more development even though he approved the biggest one in Scottsdale’s history.
He’s anti-business now yet ran in 2002 as a pro-development substitute for George Zraket.
He stands for citizens yet took away their rights for a developer.
He’s for the taxpayer except when he’s voting for subsidies and spending on himself and financial backers.
For 12 long years Bob Littlefield sat on the Scottsdale City Council. From 2003-2015. Either he’s to blame for the purported problems, or he was wildly ineffective in being able to bring about the change he says is needed.
So, whether he was politically incoherent or a political invalid it certainly suggests he has little to no ability to actually do whatever it is he says he’ll do. After all, if a person can’t prove themselves after three Olympiads, there’s little sense in talking about them as captain of next year’s team.
