Kate Gallego Phoenix City Council District 8

The first word I think of when I hear Phoenix is home. But right now a close second is “crossroads.” Our city has big decisions to make right now and we need thoughtful, experienced leaders to make them. We must make the necessary investments in public safety, education, and infrastructure that allow local businesses to grow and our community thrive. As we grow, we need to ensure District 8 finally receives its fair share of resources, from police to transportation investments.

To get the resources we deserve, District 8 needs an experienced financial planner; someone who knows not just what we need but has the city planning savvy, budget management skills and entrepreneurial spirit to fight for it. I have deep roots in city planning. I was the longest serving chair of Phoenix’s Environmental Committee, co-chair of PlanPhx, helping to develop Phoenix’s ten-year plan, member of the Central City Village Planning Committee, as well as many others. Additionally, I’m the only candidate in the race with a business background. I’ve worked to develop private-public partnerships for city projects, and I am an economic development professional, helping to bring green investment dollars to Phoenix.

I’m running because I want to help the city I love become a safer, more sustainable and more prosperous community that we are all proud to call home.
