Our Tucson and Phoenix City Council candidates could use your help. Here is an opportunity to help Janet Contreras in the Phoenix Council race.
Did you know?
We are electing FIVE city council seats and a Mayor in Phoenix THIS YEAR? Yes, in August of 2011, one of the most important city elections in quite a long time will be held. This election could change the entire mindset of the Phoenix City Council in ONE election. We need a conservative majority, and we can take it in this election if we all work together.
This is from the city council meeting Wednesday:
Sal DiCiccio needs some more conservative voices on the council to get the city budget in line. With five conservative new council seats, the mayor’s chair, and Sal DiCiccio, we could have SEVEN conservative votes out of nine on the council! January starts the negotiations for new city employee contracts going forward. Who do you want at the table representing YOU, the taxpayer? Janet Contreras or Michael Nowakowski?
Let’s take Phoenix back in 2011!
Phoenix is in far more financial trouble than the citizens are being told. Blame is irrelevant at this point. These issues must be addressed now, and the majority of the current council refuses to do so. The mindset is that when tax revenues fall short of their spending sprees, they will just tax us more and raise our water rates more and stop services to citizens more. It never occurs to them that they are “administration” heavy or that union demands are not reasonable. Labor costs are 90% of the city budget now. What happens when the 14,000+ city employees start retiring, we continue to pay and provide health care for them, and we still have to operate the city? The numbers do not add up!
We are facing a $59M 2013 budget deficit that they are refusing to address, but had no problem applying the $28.5M collected in food taxes to city employee pay raises. We are in deep, deep financial trouble, and it is time to take our city out of the hands of liberals and union thugs.
I need the support of all of the people who supported my congressional campaign last year against Ed Pastor to defeat Mike Nowakowski and his union-backed support in this election. I hope I can count on you for a donation, to put out a yard sign (if you live in the district) and/or to help make phone calls to other conservative voters to let them know the crucial importance of voting in this election.
Mike Nowakowski was elected with only 5,207 votes. He will have much stronger support from the unions this time around. There are 19,000 registered Republican voters in this district, and I need every one of them to vote for Janet Contreras, along with as many Independents as we can reach. Won’t you please help me reach them?
A donation of $5, $10, $25 is extremely helpful if all will contribute something. Your support is greatly appreciated!
Paid for by Contreras for Arizona.
