April General Meeting

David_Smith.jpegJoin us on Thursday, April 16 @ 6:30 p.m. for the opportunity to hear, and to speak with, Scottsdale City Councilman, David Smith.  The Council is busily making decisions that will affect all of us, our lifestyle and our property values.  Councilman Smith will tell us what they are considering and we voice our concerns to him.

All politics are local and the Federal Government may not listen to us individually, but our local government does - we are making a difference in Scottsdale and we cannot stop now.

Here is Councilman Smith's official website!

and, he is looking forward it - 

The topic of interest is taxes...a subject near and dear to the hearts of your members!

Specifically, I can report on the initiative I started at the city to phase out the city's sales tax on food purchased for home consumption.  It is the most regressive tax in the city and is at odds with tax policy in several other communities that specifically exempt food from taxation.  Phoenix instituted a temporary sales tax on food to balance their budget during the recession, but, just last week, that food tax expired.  A few other cities never taxed food and still don't.

I know your members are also interested in the potential of a "bond election" this fall to impose a secondary property tax to fund capital improvements in the city.  I can share my views on this topic, as well.

Most importantly, I hope to have an active Q&A session to insure I address the interests of your group.  If we don't finish in the allotted time, I'm happy to keep talking as long as your schedule permits.  I look forward to being with you and appreciate the invitation.
