Why I endorse John Skelton for Tempe City Council:
I’d like to ask you to join me in voting for my friend John Skelton for Tempe City Council.
As a Realtor, I have had some great conversations with John about some of the real challenges that we have with housing here in Tempe. John understands that we need smart development and that we need to be known for more than a college town. Even while supporting the home team.
John is a homeowner who brings a unique perspective to our council, a perspective that is needed very much.
I have followed Tempe politics since the 1970’s when my uncle Jim served our great city as our Senator for many years..During the past roughly 18 years, I have paid close attention to our city council races and I can tell you that we have made really good choices, and we have made some really poor choices.
Right now, I don’t believe we need “more of the same” in this upcoming election and I certainly don’t believe that we need a full slate of formerly elected officials.
John brings a new voice, he brings the voice of a parent, a business owner and the voice of a community advocate. He’s not a beaurocrat, he’s a neighbor, he’s a business owner and he’s a leader.
I have personally had the opportunity to serve our community alongside John in several ways. We have volunteered together with food drives, we have worked with some of our local youth sports groups, we are members of the Tempe Chamber of Commerce and we both serve as members of the Board of Directors at the Tempe Community Action Agency where we advocate for some of the most needy people in our community.
As a former professional athlete, John knows about hard work and dedication. As a business owner, John knows that our small business community is very important for a thriving city. As a parent with a young son in our school system, he knows that we have to work together to make sure our City is a great place for all of us to live, work and play.
John has become a friend and a trusted advisor over the last several years. His love for his son, his passion for helping people and his desire to give back to our community are some of the many reasons why I believe that John will be a great addition to our city council.
So, I ask that you please join me in supporting John Skelton for Tempe City Council.
**Update: Come meet my friend, John Skelton!
Lori and I are co-hosting a meet and greet “Open House” along with Councilmember Robin Arredondo-Savage and Stephanie Navarro.
John is running for one of the available seats on the Tempe City Council. In my opinion, he’s the top choice of the seven candidates currently running for the three open positions.
What: Meet Tempe City Council candidate John Skelton
When: January 7th, 2022 from 5-7PM
Why I support John Skelton:
I have been friends with John for a couple of years now. John and I serve together as members of the Board of Directors at the Tempe Community Action Agency. I have found John to be professional, articulate and willing to take on important projects with great confidence.
I have also seen some of the great work John does as a coach, father and a volunteer with the Tempe South Little League.
As a father and a small business owner, John will also provide a much needed voice for many of us in the community.
Please join us to learn more about John and his vision for a better Tempe.
This event will be held at our home, and we’ll have food and drink from local restaurants. It’ll be a great opportunity for us to discuss the issues that matter most to all of us.
