I gladly accept the Arizona Republic’s invitation to participate in their January 30th Tempe Mayoral Candidates’ Forum at the Tempe Council Chambers.
In business, competition is what keeps us on our toes. The same can be said in politics. As a restaurant owner I have had to compete side by side to stay in business. As a candidate for Tempe Mayor, I think that should be applied in politics. That’s why I am calling on the community to host as many mayoral debates as possible.
Tempe voters are facing a critical decision as they select a new mayor and the best way to help them decide is to give them a chance to see the candidates side by side.
While this may be the most challenging forum for the candidates, it is the most rewarding forum for the voters. I believe that once voters hear my message that calls for innovation and private sector solutions, they will support me and vote for me in the primary election on March 13, 2012.
