This article is somewhat confusing, as it appears to support Mark Mitchell - but the condemnation of the "current City Hall regime" would actually include Councilman Mark Mitchell, would it not?
For years, Mark Mitchell has been part of this City Council and has ONE VOTE, just as the Mayor and other Council-members. Hence, the ridicule of "wasteful spending" as duly noted by the author, would include that of Mark Mitchell, would it not?
Moreover, the authors assertion that "Hopefully Tempe's next Mayor will take the city where it needs to be and not where it's been" ...........would lead one to believe change is needed, would it not?
Mark Mitchell has served on the City Council for many years, is part of the problem, has voted in support of the very issues which the author condemns and Mark Mitchell also has his "finger[prints" all over the "wasteful spending", does he not?
One thing I do agree with, Tempe residents welcome change, and change does not occur with simply having Mark Mitchell move over two seats to his left to take the helm of which great leaders have sat, including his father, the Honorable Harry Mitchell.
Thanks for identifying Mark Michell's political shortcomings and supporting the need for change, and that change would be the Honorable Michael Monti.Feb 10, 2012
