Dan Schweiker: Development must be planned with a long-range vision

Elect Schweiker red blue
Development must be planned with a long-range vision
Dan Schweiker 2
Having started China Mist Tea in Scottsdale thirty-four years ago, I have watched the City grow and change. Some of that change has been exciting. When we started our company in 1982, the Scottsdale Airpark was just taking off. At first, there were just wholesale businesses on the east side of the airpark. The west side was just a handful of small office buildings and Crackerjax Golf, while the Dallas House restaurant was one of the few places to eat north of Shea.
When the 101 was built along the east side of the airpark, development grew exponentially.  Unfortunately, traffic grew even faster than development. Not only were the workers commuting to their jobs, but customers from all over started coming to shop, eat and do business.

Traffic became a major concern. If the early settlers of Scottsdale had ever envisioned the growth in the area, I doubt they would have designed Pima and Hayden to come together at Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard to create the perfect traffic jam.

Scottsdale’s leadership needs look far into the future when making their planning decisions. I have always felt that part of a Council’s responsibility is to have the vision to do long range planning while addressing immediate issues.

My goal is to help the Council understand these demographic changes and use that knowledge to successfully plan the future. We cannot afford to just plan for today’s needs. We must create a vision for the next generation in Scottsdale.

We cannot be limited to thinking where “long range” means next week or a few months from now.   The Scottsdale City Council must look far into the future.

In looking at development, housing, traffic and employment, I pledge to make the right decisions needed to keep Scottsdale a thriving, vibrant attractive place to live, work and play by honoring the past while adapting to the needs of the future.

We need visionary thinking to accomplish this. As your Councilman, I promise to look to the future while planning for today.

Hamway is the Right Way

Mary Hamway
I am running for state House because I feel that District 28 needs a mature and experienced leader to fill the void left by Rep. Kate Brophy McGee's departure to run for the Senate. Arizona has done many great things these past few years, but our state's leaders have also let us down in certain areas. That is why I am starting an email series entitled WRONG WAY/RIGHT WAY. In it, I will highlight a problem that is facing our state, and provide a solution I intend to work for once elected.
Arizona has led the nation in cuts to higher education. Prior to this past session's small increase, Arizona was spending 47% less per college student than it was in 2008. The result is tuition and fees increasing a whopping 83% since 2008.

Arizona must remember that we cannot expect to recruit the best companies here or have highly-skilled workers available without a top university system. We must reverse the downward trend of underfunding our great universities, because our economy's strength and future potential comes through the power of a great education system. State funding is currently at roughly 34% of a resident student's education. I will work toward a multi-year plan of increasing that number, with the ultimate goal of reaching 50% funding of a resident student's education.

Alex Meluskey: Let's discuss this

As you know, my first order of business once I arrive in Washington D.C. will be to fight for my Contract with America's Veterans and Their Families. It is only by passing these meaningful and drastic reforms that we will truly acknowledge the first cost of freedom is taking care of our Veterans. 
I hope you'll take the opportunity to come and discuss the contract with me at a special meet & greet event where I will be joined by National Committee Woman Elect Lori Klein, as well as former AZ Attorney General and Past NRA President Bob Corbin, among other great invitees. 

Event Details:

WHEN: July 12th, 4pm to 7pm
WHERE: Fireside Grill
12800 N SaguaroBlvd
Fountain Hills, AZ 85268
United States

Hosted by:

  • Gary O. Lvov

Co-Hosted by:

  • Lori Klein, Former AZ State Senator and AZ National Committee Woman Elect

  • Bob Corbin, Former AZ Attorney General, and Past President of the NRA

Join us so we can talk about the issues facing our country and share ideas on how we will fix them together for Arizona and all of America. Don't forget to stay updated on  upcoming campaign events.

Your Humble Servant,

Alex Meluskey,

Candidate for U.S. Senate (R-AZ)

Scottsdale Arizona: Permanent City Manager Process Update

For those of you who have not had the chance to follow the City Council’s process of hiring a permanent city manager, I thought you would appreciate an update on the process.

The city received interest in the position from more than 80 applicants.  Over several months, the list was reduced to three finalists.  Councilmembers met with the candidates last Wednesday and Thursday for one-on-one interviews.  Thursday evening the three candidates made presentations to the Council during a public meeting in the Kiva.

Following the presentations, Councilmembers went into an executive session to privately discuss how we wanted to move forward.  We deliberated for three hours because we were acutely aware of how important it is to the city and community to hire the right city manager.

We were not convinced that any of the candidates would be a good fit for Scottsdale.  So we agreed to ask the recruiter, the Mercer Group, to initiate a search for more candidates.  We were assured the process would be expedited and that we would see new candidates this fall.

Our citizens hold Scottsdale to a higher standard than other cities, as well they should.  Citizens have an expectation that the employees who work for them are the best we can find.  I respect that, and based my decision about how to proceed with the city manager process on the standards our citizens set.

As my Dad used to say: “The success of any business is 99% due to its people and having the right people in the right positions.”

PS:  My campaign yard signs are ready.  I hope you will display one (or more) at your home or business.  You can arrange to receive a sign by contacting my campaign’s Allies of Korte Coordinator (A-OK) Dana Close at
