Mesa has a choice this August:

• Do you want to continue building massive debt? The City of Mesa has amassed a total debt of nearly $1.5 BILLION (billion with a B). Since 1984, our debt has increased tenfold. Since just 2003, our debt has nearly doubled with no significant change in population size.

• Do you want your cost of living to keep rising? The cost of city services and taxes (water, sewer, trash, sales tax, and property tax) is rising much faster in Mesa than in neighboring communities. In 2004, Mesa boasted the lowest average cost of living and provided services at less than $1,200 per household. We have since increased to over $1,800 annually, surpassing Chandler, Gilbert, and even Scottsdale. This rapid increase reflects the fact that all city fees have been creeping up to satisfy interest payments on our massive debt.

• Do you want a healthy local economy? Economic vitality comes from free-market principles with a level playing field for businesses of all sizes. It is not within the scope of government to pick winners and losers; rather, government is obligated to treat all businesses equally under the law. This is not the way things currently stand. In addition, red tape created by an inefficient and costly permitting process is driving employers, shops, and services to neighboring communities.

Danny is working to bring attention to these important issues and increase citizen engagement in government. The burden is on us as citizens to fully engage and keep the rights and liberties that our Founding Fathers secured for us. We CAN work together as the people of Mesa to reverse the trend toward more control and less freedom.

Danny’s opponent is for continuing Mesa’s “upward momentum” but Danny believes we can continue to have positive growth and preserve the community we love WITHOUT massive debt.

Quotes:

"We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth... For my part, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst; and to provide for it." - Patrick Henry

"Politicians and diapers both need to be changed, and for the same reason." - Anonymous

"Right is right, even if everyone is against it, and wrong is wrong, even if everyone is for it." - William Penn

"Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country" - Hermann Goering

"I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do this I keep on doing." - Romans 7:18-19

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain
