David Ortega, candidate for Scottsdale mayor, does not seem to be able to generate an idea of his own.
Let me explain.
Lisa Borowsky, also a candidate for Scottsdale mayor, creates a reform agenda that includes support for a council district system. A month later, Ortega does too.
Borowsky proposes greater citizen involvement and a few weeks later Ortega proposes the same.
Borowsky wants greater government accountability and you can guess what comes next — a few weeks later, Ortega follows suit.
Ortega has not yet copied Borowsky’s call for ethics/lobbying reform or using the transportation money to which we are entitled. But we know it is coming.
Since Ortega seems to mostly mimic whatever Borowsky says, and if you like what Borowsky says, then you would be better off voting for the mayoral candidate with the actual ideas, rather than the talking mynah bird.
