The Liberals love it because they can 'HIDE' and not show their true colors. That's how Ultra Liberal Mayor Phil Gordon got elected twice. Plus the fact that less than 18% of the Registered Voters bothered to vote in the last Mayor's Race in 2007!
That's also how we end up with all the Liberals on the Phoenix City Council.
But times they are a changing folks!
We already have Conservatives Sal DiCiccio & Bill Gates on the City Council with more on the way. How do we achieve this? We Republicans MAKE THE RACES PARTISAN, that's how.
Getting people to vote in the City Elections has always been difficult. Do we want the Unions to continue to control these Phoenix Elections? Hell NO we don't.
