The Congressman and the Mayor have both taken on monumental challenges 

(Scottsdale, Arizona) Scottsdale Mayor Jim Lane has led the effort to balance Scottsdale’s budget and fuel its economic recovery. Congressman David Schweikert has been at the leading edge of the battle to balance the federal budget and economic reform in Washington DC. That’s why it should come as no surprise that Congressman Schweikert is endorsing the re-election of Scottsdale Mayor Jim Lane.

Lane, whose campaign boldly declares Scottsdale as “The Best City in America” has worked to keep the city on a steady course through the worst of economic times. At the same time he has preserved Scottsdale’s open spaces and preserved the City’s reputation as a destination for tourism.

Schweikert, whose district includes Scottsdale, says Lane has Scottsdale heading in the right direction. “Mayor Lane’s leadership has Scottsdale’s economy stronger and more vibrant. We both understand the importance of responsible spending and balanced budgets are the foundations of a thriving economy. His leadership has been critical during the sluggish economic recovery.”

Lane said, “I am honored to have the endorsement of Congressman Schweikert. We have both been fighting the good fight to reform government and restore our economy. As Scottsdale continues to rebound I can only hope people like Congressman Schweikert are successful in rebuilding the nation’s economy as well. ”

Mayor Lane ran in 2008 on a platform of reform and working to improve the way the city does business. He has kept his promises. Under his leadership, Scottsdale’s economy has expanded and attracted new investment, while the city continues to be a leader in the arts and setting aside lands for preservation.
