Transportation Tyranny, Wasteful Government Spending, Reducing Taxes

Talking Points:

The City of Phoenix budget is out of control and needs to be reduced. The website asking for feedback did not give options if citizens were interested in reducing the budget. Phoenix residents want safer neighborhoods, more police officers, lower taxes, no Green New Deal policies, 


Do not defund the police. 


Stop spending tax dollars on items that are not necessary, hurt citizens, and benefit big businesses. 


Stop implementing Road Diets, expanding Bus Rapid Transit, and expanding Light Rail. These policies put small businesses out of business, increase crashes and serious injuries, increase traffic and pollution. Valley Metro's revenue from ridership is only 16%. 81% comes from Member Cities and Federal Funding. Public Transit is failing, and Phoenix needs to stop propping up failing industries. These policies do not generate the results Phoenix residents want to see.
