We had a better way to balance Phoenix’s budget

June 10, 2014 By: ATP Category: City of Phoenix

Phoenix Mayor and some on council passed a budget on a 5-4 vote. This was the closest budget vote in City history. The budget Mayor Stanton and some council supported increased their own personal office budgets, but cut police pay. Additionally, their budget creates a new tax on water and increases fees on seniors, but refuses to address the police shortage, structural budget deficit, and lacks strategic planning.
 
Please see the column below that appeared in Arizona Republic twice this week where Vice Mayor Jim Waring and I presented our budget plan. Our plan cut nonstrategic functions such as public relations (PR),  lobbying, association dues, travel and dining.

PHX Priorities – Lack of Focus

May 21, 2014 By: ATP Category: City of Phoenix


The Phoenix Mayor and Council that banned goldfish as prizes at the State Fair will be voting this afternoon to cut police compensation. That same Mayor and Council voted to spend $650,000 to study your garbage - but still has no plan to add police to watch your homes.

City of Phoenix: Labor Contracts Must Be Transparent

May 04, 2014 By: ATP Category: City of Phoenix

The Mayor and Council will soon be approving a new set of labor agreements that will have a significant impact on the city’s budget through 2016.  
 
I’ve requested full transparency in these agreements so you can see the impact they will have on you and your family.  The proposed budget has $19 million in NEW pay raises, $17 million in a second, additional retirement plan and $12 million in pension spiking (which was promised to end).  And there is now talk about raising taxes to pay for these additional costs.
