Scottsdale Councilwoman Tammy Caputi, who is in pursuit of re-election this November, has filed signatures at the Scottsdale City Clerk’s Office to have her name be placed on the primary election ballot this July.

Scottsdale is hosting a primary election Tuesday, July 30, for the purpose of electing a mayor and three councilmembers whereas a candidate must receive 50% plus 1 of ballots cast, state law stipulates.

Ms. Caputi tells the Digital Free Press her volunteer-only signature gathering effort was based on digital efforts and a little old fashioned shoe leather.

“I’m seeking re-election to the Scottsdale City Council to continue the great work that’s being done by this council,” she said in a prepared statement.

“Along with my colleagues, I’ve increased job creation by 10%, kept our budget in the black, fully funded public safety, and brought our tourism back to pre-pandemic levels. I will run as hard as I can to make sure we keep moving forward in a positive, balanced direction.”

Ms. Caputi remains steadfast to the tenets of her campaign with what she characterizes as Scottsdale’s ‘Winning Formula,’ which she says is illustrated by a strong, healthy economy that keeps property values and amenities high with property taxes low.

“I have been blessed to collaborate with a diverse group of colleagues, an amazing city staff, and so many caring and passionate residents and business owners,” Ms. Caputi said.

“Together we have found common ground and accomplished so much already. The city will be facing many new challenges in the next few years, and we can neither stand by nor sit still if we want to maintain our excellence.”
