The Right Mayor at the Right Time for Scottsdale
Scottsdale Mayor David Ortega files to run for a second term.
Under his leadership, Scottsdale’s reputation as a beautiful, safe, clean and health-driven, world- class community has been strengthened. Mayor Ortega focuses on supporting public safety, protecting family-friendly neighborhoods, defending Scottsdale Water resources, reinvesting in our vibrant Western legacy, and promoting citywide, sustainable economic vitality. These are the hallmarks of his first three years as mayor.
Long-time advocate for equality, Mayor Ortega led the passage of the anti-discrimination ordinance by the council to ensure that Scottsdale remains a livable and economically vibrant city that excels in hospitality and tourism.
Paul Messinger, notable former Arizona Legislator and past Scottsdale councilman, gives his endorsement, “Mayor Dave Ortega is the right mayor at the right time for Scottsdale.”
“As mayor, my record is clear and consistent,” states Mayor Ortega. “Scottsdale Police and Fire Departments and all city services will have the tools, training and trust to protect and serve our neighborhoods, business districts, public facilities, and parks, which we and our four-legged friends love in our world-renowned city.
“As a full-time mayor, architect and independent leader, and forty-five year resident of Scottsdale, I pledge, every day, to continue to build upon our success.”
