  1. For anyone interested in Scottsdale Leadership, please let me know. It's an incredible nine-month program that I'm involved in right now and I'm enjoying every minute of it. The goal is to make you aware of the history and vital issue of Scottsdale and ultimately create civic leaders for the future.

    There is an applicant reception on Wednesday, March 25 from 530 to 730p at the Phoenician to learn more about the core program. The cost is free and food and drinks will be served.

    Email me at if you're interested in attending or have any questions.

    You can also visit for an application. The early bird deadline is April 1 and the final deadline is May 15. The program costs $2,000 but scholarships are available and many employers pay the tuition.
