Greg Stanton won over voters at the Arrogant Butcher.
It's official -- Greg Stanton is the winner of an Arrogant Butcher straw poll gauging who might be the next Phoenix mayor.

Stanton, a former deputy Attorney General and Phoenix councilman, claimed victory with 524 votes, or about 40 percent of all the votes cast by diners at the downtown restaurant. Stanton started off with a strong lead, and only gained momentum.

The four remaining candidates vying for the Mayor's Office on August 30 split the difference.

Wes Gullett, a Phoenix lobbyist and political consultant, pulled out a surprise lead over council members Claude Mattox and Peggy Neely with 253 votes, or 19 percent.

Mattox pulled in 228 votes and Neely nabbed 185 votes.

Thane Eichenauer picked up 123 votes.

Gullett and Stanton are both bad! Republicans I know can't believe Gullett is where he is.

 Peggy Neely will NEVER be elected Mayor of Phoenix.  As a trusted representative of District2 she violated her fiduciary obligation to her electors.  She has "sold out" tocommercial interests like Westcor. She has a clear conflict of interest by having Paul Gilbert, a zoningattorney for Westcor on her campaign staff helping to raise money for herfailed bid for Mayor.  As head ofTransportation for the City of Phoenix as a City Council member, Peggy Neelygerrymandered Sonoran Blvd, a road that was supposed to link the new 303-loopeast to Route 51.  Upon informationand belief she was paid off by Westcor with the help of attorney Paul Gilbertto not only change the name of Sonoran Blvd but to actually build the road sothat it aligns with Westcor's property in Northern Phoenix and NOT Route303.  This, of course, enhances thevalue of Westcor's 80 acre commercial parcel of property. Why is thisimportant?  Because now motoristswho are traveling on the new extension of 303 won't be able to travel east ofI-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 becomeMayor, the road Peggy Neely is building, the NEW Sonoran Blvd., will dead endin a Phoenix residential community causing massive traffic and confusion forNOT only the local residents but for the folks who will be traveling WEST fromNorth Scottsdale, Cave Creek Road area, and Carefree who think they are goingto I-17 or 303.  They will dead endat the intersection of North Valley Parkway and the NEW Neely SonoranBlvd.  This is called the Road ToNowhere.  However, there a simplesolution, build the Road To Somewhere. The Road To Somewhere is where the road was originally supposed to bebuilt.  This road is ONE mile southof the Neely-Westcor Freeway and perfectly aligns with the new Route 303.  In fact, there is funding for this roadand not for the Neely-Westcor Road. I am President of the Sonoran Citizens Improvement Association.  My name is Clif Freedman.  See www.sornorancitizens.com
