Craft: Dickey gives Fountain Hills forward momentum


As former chair for the Fountain Hills Strategic Planning Advisory Commission, I had the privilege of working with Mayor Dickey.

Under her leadership the town has enjoyed economic growth and enhanced quality of life standards including the opening of the Fountain Hills Community Medical Center, creation of a Fountain Hills Fire District, a new 10-year strategic plan that focuses on business growth and sustainability, a balanced town budget that includes a multi-year road improvement plan and our recertification as a Dark Sky community by the International Dark Sky Association.

Also, for the first time in more than two decades, a joint working collaboration between the town and the Fountain Hills Chamber of Commerce has been established to promote and support local businesses and services.

Mayor Dickey’s inclusive leadership model for fiscal responsibility and shared ownership of our most important assets – our community and its residents – has given us forward momentum.

Ginny Dickey is my candidate for re-election as mayor of Fountain Hills.
