Julie Pace: I will bring added value to Paradise Valley Town Council

I am running for town council because I love Paradise Valley and have a passion for preserving our quality of life. Julie PaceJulie Pace As a fourth generation Arizonan and 13-year resident of Paradise Valley, I understand the importance of being faithful to our town’s Heritage. My top priority on the Town Council will be to preserve and enhance our unique quality of life in Paradise Valley. Our mountains and residential desert ambiance are what attracted many of us to Paradise Valley, and are also essential to maintaining the vitality of our town’s resorts. The revenues generated from our resorts help us avoid a property tax and support critical town services. Also, I will work hard to protect the low-density residential character that makes our town unique. Preserving our unique quality of life in Paradise Valley begins with strong public safety services. Due to the current town council leadership and the outreach efforts of our police department, we have seen significant improvements to our public safety services. We need to build on these improvements, and as a member of the town council, I will ensure that public safety remains a top priority and work hard to enhance this critical service to keep our residents safe and secure. As your councilwoman, I will focus on finding ways to enhance our public safety services to keep Paradise Valley families safe and secure. I am a collaborator and problem solver, and have worked under five mayors to make a difference on municipal planning, zoning, design, and execution for more than a decade.
My experience is unique because I have represented both the private sector and local governments in government contracting matters. This is relevant to service on the council because how our town spends taxpayer dollars in procuring goods and services is important for fiscal responsibility and public accountability.
I look forward to using my education and experience to serve on the town council to take real action on the quality of life issues that are so important to all of us. If given the privilege and honor to serve on the Paradise Valley Town Council, I will be accessible to residents and work cooperatively with the mayor, council, and staff to preserve our quality of life, enhance public safety, and address drainage and infrastructure issues while continuing to avoid a property tax. PACE stands for Passion, Action, Commitment and Execution. Learn more about my campaign for Town Council at www.PaceForPV.com or email me directly at paceforpv@gmail.com.
