Cantor: Scottsdale’s mature neighborhoods want to pass general plan

Posted

The Scottsdale Edge blog carried comment on the “Vote No on the General Plan” signs and the 501(c)(4) group that provides the dark money support — would you bet that our previous City Council members are involved?

Here is their philosophy from their website:

History has proven when governments are less restrictive, operate efficiently, and provide opportunities for business owners to re-invest their profits and grow their bottom line, everyone wins.

A rising tide does indeed lift all boats.

Market Freedom Alliance advocates for smaller, more efficient government and for more individual freedom allowing business owners greater capacity to succeed in business.

“We believe that no power of government is as formidable a force for good as the creativity and entrepreneurial drive of the American people.”

Competition

WE BELIEVE the individual’s competitive spirit should be challenged and nurtured so the best and brightest minds create the most effective and efficient products and services.

Free Market

WE BELIEVE that consumers should dictate the demand of goods and services with little government interference outside guidelines to lawfully execute exchanges.

Trade

WE BELIEVE Arizona’s creators of goods and services should be able to exchange those goods and services for value within and outside the United States of America.

Entrepreneurship

WE BELIEVE the entrepreneur lies at the core of Arizona’s success.

I disagree with their last statement. Consumers are critically important, as is quality of product and/or service.

They want to abolish minimum wage, are very weak on the issue of providing a fare wage, weak on fair healthcare and safe housing for veterans and their families.

As a 501(c)(4) they do not have to disclose their donors.

As a conservative Libertarian political entity their focus is 99% geared to supporting and promoting business interests.

So who do you think this group is going support, the developers or the residents?

Vote “yes” on the general plan update. The residents of the mature neighborhoods of southern Scottsdale will be grateful.
