Should one Scottsdale council person be allowed to vote twice on issues? I don't think so. But that's exactly what is being proposed by Bob Littlefield, a candidate for the mayor's office. You see, Bob's wife was elected to the council in 2014. Bob worked very hard on her campaign. It wasn't the first time he's tried to stack the council. He worked on Guy Phillips campaign, and he worked hard promoting Cindy Hill's failed campaign. This latest stunt is the most egregious attempt yet by Bob to further his own personal agenda regardless of what's best for Scottsdale's citizens. The council should be a diverse group of representatives with different perspectives and view points, debating the issues and reaching a consensus. It's hard to imagine any genuine distinction between the two Littlefields. We've already had twelve years of Bob on the city council and we get two more years of his wife Kathy. I believe the Littlefield's party of "no" has been and is presently well represented on the council. Why should they get two votes, two paychecks and possibly two pensions from the generosity of the citizens of Scottsdale? Enough is enough.
