Scott Moore: Strong, Steady Leadership in Trying Times

Dear Fellow Paradise Valley Resident:

As your former Vice Mayor and current Paradise Valley Town Council member, I’m excited to announce my run for re-election.

Born in Phoenix, my current home in Paradise Valley is just a couple miles away from where I grew up. I have raised my family in Paradise Valley and cherish our Town’s unique values.

In difficult times, it’s important to have strong and steady leadership. My extensive experience in Town government and my four years on the Town Council have provided me with a significant amount of perspective on the challenges our Town faces and our next steps after the COVID-19 crisis.

I began as a Town volunteer serving on the Board of Adjustments, followed by serving on the Planning Commission. I’m a prior Board member of our Paradise Valley Destination Marketing Organization Experience Scottsdale, and well as former Council liaison for the Paradise Valley Arts Advisory Committee. I’m currently Council liaison for the Paradise Valley HOA committee and the Veterans Appreciation Vintage Car Show Committee.

My priorities hold true to our Town’s values:

  • Support our police officers and first responders — now more than ever
  • Fight to gain back local control over short-term rental properties
  • Uphold fiscal responsibility and a balanced budget
  • Ensure responsible development and preserve the unique residential character of our community and mountain views
  • Oppose any local property tax — we don’t need to raise Town taxes to weather this crisis.

I would like to thank our current Mayor Jerry Bien-Willner, as well as former Mayors Scott LeMarr and Ed Winkler, for endorsing my candidacy, as well as other Council Members and residents who have encouraged me to run.

I look forward to working with my colleagues to provide steady, solid leadership during this difficult time. It’s important that we continue to work together to help ensure we get past this public health crisis and help our local resorts and businesses recover, while ensuring that Town services remain at a high level.

My experience over the past decade in public service has helped prepare me to serve the Town during this unprecedented time. I ask for your vote, and if re-elected I will continue to make comprehensive decisions that are consistent with our Town’s unique quality of life and values.

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  Or, as the re-election campaign progresses please visit me at

Yours very truly,

Councilmember Scott Moore
