A new Political Action Committee (PAC) was just formed with the goal of getting a “no” vote on prop 420. The name of this new group is Protect YOUR Preserve. Yes, you read that right. The new organization that is fighting to put an edutainment center in the Preserve is call Protect YOUR Preserve. This is meant to cause confusion in the eyes of voters. The one and only Scottsdale-citizen committee that is working to save the McDowell Sonoran Preserve from developers is Protect OUR Preserve.
Jan Dolan (infamous former City Manager of Scottsdale) is the Chairperson of the Protect YOUR Preserve committee. And Lynne Lagarde of PHOENIX is second in command of this bogus committee. Protect YOUR Preserve is trying to fraudulently hijack the committee founded by the citizens of Scottsdale to Protect OUR Preserve. Lagarde is also on the Board of the Desert Edge (Desert Discovery Center) so we know where her priorities lie.
Here’s a LINK to the application they submitted to the city for their bogus PAC. Read for yourself. It has their contact information if you want to get in touch.
Just as a reminder, here are some other names of people that are working to turn the people’s Preserve into a commercial development… Scottsdale city council members: Virginia Korte, Linda Milhaven and David N. Smith. Along with this list of non-Scottsdale citizens with some Scottsdale citizens: Christine Kovach, Mike Surguine, Mike Miller, Dr. Art DeCabooter, Diana Yazzie Devine, Joan Fudala, John Graham, Dan Gruber, Steve Hilton, Rachel Sacco, Wellington Reiter, Richard Bowers, Dr. Robert Breunig, Dr. Lattie Coor, John Flicker, Dr. Jan Gehler, Robert Perciasepe, Sam Campana, Randy Schilling, Cecilia Riviere, Mark Hiegel
I’d put a list of #YESprop420 supporters, but the list is too large.
Only Protect OUR Preserve is working to save the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. Protect YOUR Preserve is a fraudulent group created to destroy the Preserve and put a multi-building edutainment center on it.
Remember VOTE YES PROP 420. Our Preserve. Our Vote. Protect OUR Preserve. #YESprop420
