Transparent Surprise an Open Book to a Clearer Vision for our City

 Over the past several years, the citizens of Surprise, Arizona have been awakening and understanding that we've been too complacent in our paltry participation and stoic selection of the leadership we expect to shape our future as a city. A city that humbly began as a beautiful array of neighboring farmlands that transformed quickly in the early 2000s into our inspiriting suburban bedroom community. As our city grows and faces increasing challenges, we have seen some troubling trends around us: a stark increase in special interests funding of campaigns; special interests paying high-powered lawyers to not only challenge but even threaten our elected officials on votes taken; unsustainable infrastructure (schools, roads, first responders) for the rapid growth we've experienced. Unfortunately we are left wanting for a clear vision for our city, and an effective plan to build this locality into the prosperous community our next generation needs.
