The East Valley will fail to be known as anything other than "small fry" until its membership participates actively in ensuring that those that represent the East Valley in the Legislature are replaced with real leadership and a mindset that moves the state forward. At this time all the obstructionists for the most part represent- Mesa, Gilbert, Queen Creek and AJ. Spend all the $$ to rebrand it will not work until there is a cultural shift as well.

John's opinion is spot on. It is true, that increasingly Gilbert voters, that were hoodwinked by the elected majority on the Council and School board, are now awakened to get involved and push back from the extreme element who have over taken the Town. The School Board and Council are all of the same thinking and are interbred with their ideology. Gilbert citizens are waking up to the danger this group presents to our Town and are beginning to find their own voice to push back from the radicalization of the Town. Thanks John, your voice represents a large number of Gilbert voters. Next election 2013.1 month ago
Maybe they should have compared figures using other communities such as Chandler, and Gilbert, who make less than Mesa, as opposed to communities that get a higher pay. Convenient for politicians to pick those with higher pay for themselves but not for their employees. Do Mesa employees make more than Tempe, and Phoenix- NO!6 months ago
Bill Montgomery is only interested in self service. Ran for Attorney General and lost, retooled himself hung out with TeaParty zealots and got elected. He is only interested in his blind ambition and whats in it for him. Took a page out of Andy Thomas play book, whom he was allies with.9 months ago
Oh yeah the Bill Montgomery who gained his support to win his current position by fawning all over the Tea Party. Had members like JTReady's support (Gilbert murderer). Bill Montgomery has a significant ego and unbridled ambition, even though he failed when he ran for Attorney General, he learned to turn to the group that screamed the loudest and is the least inclusive in to his biggest cheering fans. Shame on Montgomery- stop the Tea Party.

Mayor Lewis and his Economic team continue to strike out. Can not keep a significant business in Gilbert as they lose them to Chandler now Mesa. No leadership at the helm, no business success.11 months ago

Barney found out doing what his Tea Party friends want and what the District needs to do are two different things, easy to be a quitter and then sit on the side lines and criticize- no loss, let the real leaders step up.
