I am running for re-election to the City Council because I respect our city’s past and all those who helped make Scottsdale so great – and, most importantly, I want to make sure we stay focused on our future.
Truthfully, some people think they can turn back the clock to what our city once was while ignoring what it can be.
Those people want to stop us from continuing to attract visitors who contribute to the city’s revenue and help keep our taxes down. They have also stopped us from investing in maintaining some of our most critical infrastructure, which ends up putting citizen services in jeopardy.
I am grateful that voters approved two bond questions last November to build new fire stations and replace 140 miles of deteriorating pavement on our streets. However, when the other four bond questions were rejected, it left our city with about $67 million in unfunded priority projects.
We have to work to prevent that from ever happening again.
I want to continue moving our city forward in the right direction, so I would appreciate your help to keep our quality of life sustainable. I invite you to visit my website to learn more about my campaign to put Scottsdale first and find out how you can help: KorteScottsdale.com
I am not taking my re-election for granted – and neither should you.
