"The government tried to take away their livelihoods, and these folks fought back. This is a huge win for them, and a huge win for taxpayers across the City. This allows our crumbling, dangerous and embarrassing streets to be re-paved today. $1.6 billion is needed today just to bring up the streets to standard"</p><p> Despite turning in more than double the required signatures to put the issue on the ballot, Build a Better Phoenix still found themselves defending the ballot access they earned against a fully-funded and City-supported effort to circumvent the will of the people.​​<br></p><p><br></p></div>4/12/2019 3:55:00 PMNick Valenzuela602-495-5405
