This is Bob Littlefield’s position on the DDC, stated on January 11 at the City Council Meeting.
Littlefield further stated on August 3 in the Scottsdale Independent:
“Eight years ago I supported what the DDC was originally intended to be, a small, low-impact desert interpretive center with no commercial activity and no nighttime events…The Preserve Gateway was dedicated on May 2, 2009. It is what the DDC was originally intended to be and what I supported. The DDC I supported has been built; no more is necessary.”
A pro-DDC group recently put together a smear video about Bob Littlefield using clips from 2008, twisting his support for the humble DDC concept to paint him as supporting the Desert Disneyland. This is the same disingenuous tactic Jim Lane uses in his campaign emails to lie about Littlefield’s DDC support. We detailed Lane’s big lie in a post last week.
We performed an internet registry search on this pro-DDC group, and the results were so damning that they banned one of our supporters from their facebook page for posting it. The smear video, the FB page, and the website is created and managed by Phoenix PR firm Scutari and Cieslak, colleagues of Lane’s campaign manager Jason Rose.
$$ –> false information –> Scutari&Cieslak –> Jason Rose –> Jim Lane
NoDDC is run by volunteers, and we’ve received a total of $525 in campaign donations. If this pro-DDC group was a bunch of private folks, we’d be totally ok with them. But a professional PR firm paid for by Lane and his dark money donors is further proof that the DDC is a giant scam by politicians and their cronies.
