Moore: I want your vote for Paradise Valley Town Council

Scott Moore

Scott Moore

Hello fellow residents. My name is Scott Moore and I’m asking for your vote to serve on the Paradise Valley Town Council so I can help protect the quality of life we all share.

We are fortunate that we live in a community that has enjoyed exceptional leadership for quite some time. Paradise Valley is moving in a great direction. I believe those running for town council generally share a vision for what our community should be and why it’s so special.

I’d like to take a moment to tell you why my experience is unique, and what I believe I can bring to the table in serving our town.

As a native Arizonian and resident of Paradise Valley, I have been honored to serve as a volunteer for the Town of Paradise Valley for the past several years. Formally a member of the Board of Adjustment, I’m currently serving as Planning Commissioner and rotating member of the Hillside Committee.

I have worked on the review and approval process for the Ritz-Carlton resort, the Mountain Shadows resort and the redevelopment plan for the Cottonwoods resort and the Hermosa Inn, just to name a few.

And I have fought in these capacities to preserve what makes our town special — its unique residential character, a commitment to small government and fiscal responsibility, and a commitment to keeping our community safe.

My 30-year career in municipal planning and commercial real estate has given me the experience and insight that I am able to utilize today as a town Planning Commissioner and in the future as your town council member. My experience includes:

  • Planning, designing and developing large municipal projects including water treatment facilities, wastewater treatment plants, arterial roads and major infrastructure;
  • Finding creative ways to mitigate traffic challenges and improve quality of life;
  • Drafting intergovernmental agreements and municipal development agreements that are fiscally responsible.
    As a future council member I look forward to working with the mayor and my fellow council nembers and I pledge to remain consistent and true to our town’s mission by:
  • Continuing to focus on public safety and the sustainability of our pension plans for our police officers;
  • Upholding fiscal responsibility for capital improvement projects and ensuring a sustainable balanced budget;
  • Managing responsible growth throughout the town, including our hillside developments, to ensure we preserve the unique residential character of our community;
  • Opposing any local property tax.

This is a volunteer position, and I’m not a career politician. I have been a volunteer for the town for many years. I believe in our vision of primarily one-acre residential and I’m proud to call Paradise Valley my home.

We have an exceptional community full of exceptional people. Our council has been full of many talented volunteers with a wide range of skills. Having a council with the combined strength of talents only increases the knowledge and wisdom the group can offer. With diverse backgrounds in many career fields we can tackle just about any challenge that comes up.

I would like to thank Mayor Michael Collins; former Mayor Scott LeMarr and Vernon Parker; Vice Mayor David Sherf; council members Jerry Bien-Willner, Mary Hamway and Paul Dembow and many other community leaders for endorsing my candidacy, as well as many other residents who have encouraged me to run.

I invite you to visit my web site at www.scottmooreaz.com to learn more about my vision for Paradise Valley. Please take the time and vote in our primary election on August 30. It’s important for our future.
