The Ahwatukee Foothills News' endorsement of Wes Gullett for mayor made me wonder: Did they look beyond the campaign slogans?

If the editorial board had done its research, they would be surprised at what they would find about Gullett's fiscal record, and plans for Phoenix. Running as a fiscal conservative, Gullett has claimed that his reforms will save the city money - but that is nothing more than a slogan.

In reality, Gullett's pension reform plan for city employees will cost taxpayers more money. Without those savings, how does Gullett plan to pay for his campaign promises? He has yet to answer.

In contrast to Gullett's irresponsible fiscal plans, Greg Stanton has a record of real results for fiscal responsibility. As our city councilman for nine years, Stanton balanced city budgets, and had the smallest expenditures of any council office. As mayor, he will streamline city government and cut the red tape that hurts business.

The AFN endorsement may repeat Gullett's slogans, but I am voting for Stanton because of his record of real results.
