Thank You Paradise Valley

September 2, 2016
Mayor Michael Collins

Happy Labor Day weekend friends and neighbors!

As we kick off this final holiday weekend of summer, here are the results of our local election and a look at what's ahead for your Paradise Valley Town Council.

But first, with the local election over and final tally in, thank you everyone for your continued trust, support and votes to re-elect me to serve another two years as your Mayor of Paradise Valley!

Time has really flown by these past two years and together we have made significant progress on issues and projects that matter. So thank you for this opportunity to continue to serve and I look forward to another productive two years.

Election results were as follows:

  • Mayor: Michael Collins (2701 votes)
  • Council: Mark Stanton (2020 votes), Julie Pace (1963 votes), Scott Moore (1650 votes) and Daran Wastchak (1310 votes). Congrats to Mark, Julie and Scott for being elected to office. I look forward to working with the new council when they take office next year.

But for now it's back to business for the existing Town Council.

Join us Thursday, September 22rd at 3:00 pm for a Town Hall presentation and discussion on several important issues facing the town:

  • Zika virus - what is Maricopa County doing about it - what is Paradise Valley doing about it - what should we all be doing about it?
  • Cell phone service - hear the results of our investigation and progress to date - view town-wide frequency survey data - listen to the proposed solutions.
  • Short-term house rentals - after the legislature preempted local regulation, what's next for AirBnB and VRBO properties in Paradise Valley?
  • Phoenix sewer service rates - an update on efforts to get the City of Phoenix to play nicely with Paradise Valley residents who are Phoenix water customers.

As you can see, your Town Council is already hard at work. If you can't join us in person, you can always watch us live at or later on demand from the convenience of your home or office.

At a minimum stay informed and tuned in to local news and reporting. Contact me with questions or comments at or follow me on Facebook at /PVMayorCollins.

Have a safe Labor Day weekend!

Thanks again for the honor of serving as your Mayor. We have a great Town Council and our newly elected members will help continue the success and progress I have no doubt. Please stay engaged and informed and help us keep Paradise Valley the best small town in America.

Yours in service,
Michael Collins Signature
Mayor, Town of Paradise Valley
