No gimmicks or hype – just ‘One Peoria.’ She truly believes that every part of this city is special and that we must all work together to build a strong community. This campaign video truly captures her spirit and I think that voters will value her sincerity and vision this November.”
“I have always seen the value of giving back to the place you call home. That’s what Peoria is for me, my home. It’s more than an address, it’s the place where I have built my family. Where we have built our lives and made memories.
My daughter took her first steps at Rio Vista Park. My entire family gathered for baseball games on Peoria fields over decades while my kids were in Little League. My children have grown up here, they have been enriched by our excellent schools, and have benefitted from living in a place where the outdoors and the indoors are seamless. Peoria is stitched into my fabric. People and communities’ matter to me. And for nearly three decades, I have worked in service to this city to make it the best it can be.
In 2006 after two decades in the banking industry, I joined the Peoria Diamond Club. My finance and management skills led the non-profit to new heights, donating over one million dollars to Peoria and West Valley youth charities and organizations.
I was encouraged to run for the Peoria City Council eight years ago, I met the call and saw it as a way to put my proven leadership skills to work in an even greater and more impactful way. I have worked tirelessly to be a voice for my neighbors, encouraging the right kind of growth for our city, pushing for continued fiscal responsibility and ensuring our police and fire professionals have the funds and support they need to keep us safe.
I also collaborated with our citizens on the development of Paloma Regional Park, which serves the fastest growing area of our city while still protecting the natural open spaces that set our city apart from any other in the valley. I’ve been an advocate and a voice for Peoria on the regional and national stage. Now I am running for mayor to not only keep our city on the path of success, but to steer it into an even brighter future. And I know I’m the person to do it.
I have a proven track record of success through my public service as well as my work as the first female executive director of the Arizona Cactus League Baseball Association. I’ve been recognized numerous times as one of the States most influential women in leadership, service and business. I know what it takes to lead a great city. And I know what it will take to shape Peoria into the one it is destined to be. I want Peoria to be a city where businesses flock to and find success – the kind that inspires entrepreneurship and innovation. I want Peoria to be a destination that visitors continue to seek out, year after year.
I’m ready to fight for my hometown, for every square inch of it and every resident who calls our city theirs. We are One Peoria, and while each part of our city is special and unique, they all work together to form this amazing community. Peoria needs a leader who gets this. Peoria needs a leader who understands what it takes to protect the taxpayer and those invested in our city.
Peoria needs a leader who makes real promises and has a track record of getting things done. I’m ready for the job, and I will give it the full-time attention that it needs – that our residents deserve. Peoria matters to me, just like it does to you, and I will never forget that. There are great things on Peoria’s horizon. Vote for me, and I’ll take us there. I’m Bridget Binsbacher. I’m running for Mayor of Peoria."
