Bill Gates is now a Phoenix city councilman. By a 5-3 vote, he was appointed to the vacancy created with Maria Baier’s appointment to be Arizona’s State Land Commissioner.
Gates is a solid pick. He has been active in the community and is a smart, thoughtful attorney who will bring a strong work ethic and common sense approach to city government. There is no question that he will have an immediate impact on the council.
I’ve had the chance to work with Bill on a variety of issues and known him for many years. This couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. Congrats Bill.
