Say Yes to Phoenix: My Platform

Kevin PattersonCampaign Updates, Issues Comments

It’s crazy to think that we have now been in this campaign for nearly three months. I still remember the day we filed at the City Clerk’s office surrounded by my friends and family, full of hope and love for what lay ahead. Now, as we have dived deeper and deeper into our community, I have learned more and more about the issues everyday residents have with their City government and the opportunity that we have to build a Phoenix that we are all proud of.

With that, I am so proud to be launching a full-fledged policy platform that is built on the values I and this wonderful community share of economic opportunity for working families, equitable access to city services, smart economic development that values people over profit, and fiscal accountability to make sure that our children and grandchildren are not burdened by the weight of our decisions. This platform not only reacts to the failures of the incumbent Councilman and proposes ways we can fix them; it outlines proactive policy proposals and new ways of thinking about some of our toughest issues.

My platform is broken into four categories:

  • Responsible Growth and Economic Development
  • Safe Neighborhoods
  • Cost-Effective Housing
  • Fiscal Accountability

You can read the platform here to see the individual policy points that we are going to be talking to this community about and why they’re important to all of us. Expect even more on this front from us because, at the end of the day, campaigns are not about personalities and egos, but about the issues that affect you and your family’s well-being when you go home at night. That’s what my campaign is about; I want to Say Yes to You and all that we can do together in the City of Phoenix.

Please leave me your feedback in the comments! I want to hear from you about what more we can do together.
