Gilbert Changed Their Election Cycle in 45 Days. Why Can’t Goodyear?

Read on, please, I have an easy four step job below for all of you.

Here is a link to the August 18, 2011 Gilbert, AZ town council meeting where Gilbert voted on a citizen sponsored recommendation to move Gilbert elections to the fall in order to save the city money.  This is the exact same idea that the folks from GoodyearVotes have proposed for the city of Goodyear (link to Goodyearvotes facebook page at the very bottom of this post).

Here are the actual meeting minutes where the vote was taken and passed 5 – 2 in favor of moving the elections. Gilbert meeting minutes  The issue was brought up in Gilbert in July of 2011, voted on and passed by Gilbert Town Council in less than 45 days.

Now that is responsive local government.

Here is a link to the local Gilbert town blogger (Gilbert Watch) who has challenged and changed Gilbert’s council climate.

Now I have an easy four step job for all of you out there.

1. Here are the email addresses of Goodyear’s City Council Members.  Just cut and paste these into your email TO space;,,,,,,,,,

2. Here is a simple email you can cut and paste into the body of your email to Goodyear City Council;

Dear Goodyear City Council;

An organization that calls itself Goodyearvotes claims that Goodyear can save a significant amount of money on election costs if the city of Goodyear will simply move elections from their current times to coincide with state and national fall elections.

I believe them.

As a Goodyear resident, I want you to do everything you can to move Goodyear’s next possible election cycle to coincide with state and national fall elections in order to save Goodyear money.  If it can’t be done this way, I would like to see Goodyear city council get behind this initiative so it gets done as quickly as possible otherwise.

I would appreciate a reply to my email to tell me where you stand on this issue.  No spin or excuses please.



Goodyear Resident (including your address would also add a lot to your message).

3. Send your email.

4. Send a link to this howardsgoodyearblog article to all your Goodyear resident friends when you forward your email to them.  Especially to those who normally disagree with you.
