Councilwoman Solange Whitehead
City of Scottsdale

Scottsdale is a special place.  We have a history of stunning achievements when the City and citizens work together: the Indian Bend Wash Greenbelt, resort-like pools, parks, libraries and senior centers, and the spectacular McDowell Sonoran Preserve.

Scottsdale’s economic engines have always been fueled by community priorities.  Today’s City Council doesn’t share our priorities.   From South to North and across the political spectrum – I am humbled by the support you have given me to bring community priorities back to City Hall.

I am an electrical engineer, a business woman, a former preserve commissioner, a wife & mom, and your neighbor for 22 years.   I know that today’s priorities determine tomorrow’s value.

To sustain Scottsdale’s charm, we will plan growth, prioritize open space, protect Scottsdale’s unique character, and spend our tax dollars on our community.  It’s all about priorities, our priorities.


Advancing Green Initiatives that save our resources and tax dollars is a top priority.  The City’s progress is discussed on a recent  Today and Tomorrow in Scottsdale Podcast.

Public Trust

Public trust is the foundation of a thriving and prosperous City.  Embracing community input and entrusting Scottsdale voters led to Scottsdale’s greatest achievements: the Indian Bend Wash Greenbelt and the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. (A Thanksgiving Store-Scottsdale Lorax Story)

Priorities for Prosperity

Scottsdale’s world class reputation, our effortless elegance, is the result of community focused priorities.   Scottsdale must prioritize its limited tax dollars on investments that improve Scottsdale’s value as a tourist and business relocation destination.

I support:

Quality of Life

Scottsdale’s allure is its unique character, vast open spaces, and luxurious yet affordable lifestyle.    Growth should be consistent with Scottsdale’s character and enhance the quality of life for today’s residents as well as future residents.
