Crawford’s spin doesn’t hold up if you have observed the mayor and council at work. Most of the items coming before them seeking approval involve corporate welfare, either in the form of taxpayer-funded cash subsidies; or zoning subsidies in the form of eroding the high development standards that have historically set Scottsdale apart from neighboring communities…and which have protected our quality of life.
In both those cases, “no” is almost always the best answer.
However, Mr. Crawford would like to have his cake (err…waffles) and eat it, too, by straddling the fence and trying to make you believe he’s a compromiser. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want my quality of life compromised…and waffles are for breakfast, not for politics.
