From social media this morning:
[Scottsdale City] Councilwoman [Linda] Milhaven says if Scottsdale City Council were to have entertained the citizen petition [to require ballot approval on the $100 million Desert Discovery Center] there could be unintended consequences nobody wants.
“For us to set guidelines for citizen votes for all of those kinds of things, housekeeping items, there are lot of unintended consequences that could stop us from doing some really basic things,” she said.
Classic arrogance, typical for a Wells Fargo banker:
$100 million is a “housekeeping item.” FYI, the entire City of Scottsdale budget is about $250 million.
