Kate Gallego’s background is in economic development; her interest is creating good jobs for the people in her city. She understands the needs of the business community.
“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.”
