Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
The City of Scottsdale: often considered to be the Jewel of Arizona Cities. Often called the best run city in the country. Not so fast - the level of corruption in Scottsdale government is right up there with the big cities. The City Council - minus one - does not listen to constituents. Team members of AFA had a chat with Councilwoman Virginia Korte, a woman who has aspirations of being Mayor. We chatted informally with her about the Bond Issue they were planning to run again - this is pretty much an annual effort!
In her words, "it will only add about $18 a week to property taxes." I guess Korte isn't too good with math when she said "only" or maybe nearly $1000 a year means nothing to her. Or maybe she meant to say $18 a month! Well, either way, it's unnecessary - or would be if they had not already struck a deal with the Scottsdale School District to buy and sell real property back and forth.
