Guest Editorial: Ensuring Strong, Consistent Leadership for Paradise Valley

By Councilmember Scott Moore

Dear Fellow Paradise Valley Resident:

As your former Vice Mayor and current Paradise Valley Town Council member, I’m excited to be running for re-election in the July 30 election — you can expect your mail-in ballot to arrive around July 4.

I am an Arizona native, and settled in Paradise Valley more than 15 years ago to raise my family. As both an elected and appointed Town official, I have worked tirelessly to preserve Paradise Valley’s unique and beloved character by collaborating with my fellow colleagues and state legislators to protect the quality of life and high standards that are important to Paradise Valley residents.

My Town experience includes serving as an unpaid volunteer for over 10 years, beginning as a member of the Board of Adjustments, and later serving on the Planning Commission, and as the Town’s Vice Mayor.

To maintain our quality of life it is important to have strong, steady, knowledgeable, and effective leadership. Competence in the full scope of Town business, including all aspects of legal requirements within meetings, proposed projects, and Town efforts, is paramount for top results.  I have worked hard to listen and learn, and to utilize my skills to benefit our citizens while always prioritizing the highest professionalism and respect for others.

I am proud to be endorsed by many current and past elected officials – including our current Mayor Jerry Bien-Willner, former Mayors Scott LeMarr and Ed Winkler, former Vice Mayors and Council members, members of our Boards and Commissions, and residents who have endorsed my campaign for re-election.

I cherish our Town’s values and support our police officers and first responders. And I’m opposed to any local property tax. My passion for Paradise Valley’s low density residential character, and the example set by others before him, are what guide my priorities.

I have an open-door policy with residents and thank all those who have reached out to me. I welcome the opportunity to continue hearing from all of you about any issue that may be affecting your quality of life in Paradise Valley. Please feel free to contact me at

I look forward to continuing my service to the Town on your behalf.

Yours very truly,

Councilmember Scott Moore
