The Arrogant Butcher, downtown's newest dining spot, has been running a straw poll to gauge who might be Phoenix's next mayor.

The results for Week One are in, and former Deputy Attorney General and Councilman Greg Stanton is leading the pack.

Stanton: 168
Councilman Claude Mattox: 126
Councilwoman Peggy Neely: 78
Lobbyist Wes Gullett: 47
Libertarian Thane Eichenauer: 18

We couldn't help but wonder why the results stacked up the way they did, but maybe ...

...maybe Claude Mattox and Peggy Neely didn't do better because they didn't offer their fans any subsidies on the meals?

...maybe Wes Gullett came in fourth because most of his fans didn't want to make the drive down from Paradise Valley?

...maybe Stanton's former treasurer snatched some of his opponent's ballots?

...maybe Eichenauer ... um, who?

Peggy Neely will NEVER be elected Mayor of Phoenix. As a trusted representative of District 2 she violated her fiduciary obligation to her electors. She has "sold out" to commercial interests like Westcor. She has a clear conflict of interest by having Paul Gilbert, a zoning attorney for Westcor on her campaign staff helping to raise money for her failed bid for Mayor. As head of Transportation for the City of Phoenix as a City Council member, Peggy Neely gerrymandered Sonoran Blvd, a road that was supposed to link the new 303 loop east to Route 51. Upon information and belief she was paid off by Westcor with the help of attorney Paul Gilbert to not only change the name of Sonoran Blvd but to actually build the road so that it aligns with Westcor's property in Northern Phoenix and NOT Route 303. This, of course, enhances the value of Westcor's 80 acre commercial parcel of property. Why is this important? Because now motorists who are traveling on the new extension of 303 won't be able to travel east of I-17 to get to Route 51. Peggy Neely for political purposes "broke" the loop and has caused motorists irreparable harm. Not only that but because of her blind ambition to become Mayor, the road Peggy Neely is building, the NEW Sonoran Blvd., will dead end in a Phoenix residential community causing massive traffic and confusion for NOT only the local residents but for the folks who will be traveling WEST from North Scottsdale, Cave Creek Road area, and Carefree who think they are going to I-17 or 303. They will dead end at the intersection of North Valley Parkway and the NEW Neely Sonoran Blvd. This is called the Road To Nowhere. However, there a simple solution, build the Road To Somewhere. The Road To Somewhere is where the road was originally supposed to be built. This road is ONE mile south of the Neely-Westcor Road and perfectly aligns with the new Route 303. In fact, there is funding for this road and not for the Neely-Westcor Road. I am President of the Sonoran Citizens Improvement Association. My name is Clif Freedman. See
