“We need to be brilliant at the basics when it comes to infrastructure.” – Moses Sanchez
Infrastructure is the basic physical and organizational structure needed for the operation of a city such as roads, pedestrian and bicycle systems, water supply, sanitary and storm sewers, public transit, airports, railroads, public buildings and facilities, solid waste collection, power supply, and telecommunications.
“Let’s focus on improving our streets, roads, parks, public utilities, and transit. By being brilliant at the basics we can make Phoenix a world-class city. One with arts, culture, and a strong public safety record. A city with an economy that doesn’t just recruit high wage jobs but grows them through public-private partnerships.”Moses Sanchez
When Phoenicians wait for public transportation, they should be waiting in shaded areas for the best public transportation options available. Low cost, wide coverage, and state-of-the-art technology should make our public transportation options competitive with the best in the Nation.
Improved Streets & Sidewalks
Too often, I hear the frustration from Phoenix families regarding our streets and the lack of quality sidewalks in our city.
Potholes are caused by the expansion and contraction of groundwater after the water has entered the ground under the pavement. As a city with less year-round water, we need to be better at maintaining our streets and not taking shortcuts.
Make our Parks the Best in Arizona
With the charming ambiance, beautiful landscapes, and a touch of unique flair we could lead the state and compete across the nation with our year-round parks.
As Councilman, I will lead in forming public-private partnerships to bring out the best in our parks and to complete the unfinished parks that are just dirt lots.
Maintaining Affordable Water Rates
We need to ensure access to safe, clean drinking water and not only maintain existing levels of equity but also address and reduce remaining inequities.
Phoenix has a very low fixed rate compared to other major American cities but we need to be smart in managing rate increases. Water, sewer, solid waste, and City taxes are billed together and jointed enforced.
