Every election year, the Chandler City Council holds elections for three council seats.

Currently, there are no women serving on the Chandler City Council.

Beth Brizel, an education activist and long time Chandler resident would like to change that by winning a seat to the Council in the November elections this year.

A pragmatic Independent, Brizel would bring a problem solving, a forward-looking approach based on actual data to the cities issues.

Ms. Brizel graciously discussed her qualifications and positions on the issues facing Chandler.

The questions and her responses are below.

  1. 1. Please tell the reader what are at least two qualifications that make you ideal for the Chandler City Council.

“I am committed to public service.”

 “I have lived here for 25 years.”

“I served on the Kyrene School Board from 2010 to 2014 and was a co-chair for Yes, Support Our Schools in 2015 & 2017 – the PAC that supported the Tempe Union High School District Bond and Override elections. “ 

“ I have been a small business owner since 2002. My company, Recruiting Connection, LLC, specializes in commercial real estate / commercial property management placement nationwide. 

“ I have been endorsed by the United Phoenix Firefighters Association of Arizona Local 493, the Chandler Law Enforcement Association, The Arizona Conference of Police and Sheriffs, Councilmember Matt Orlando and Former Councilmember Martin Sepulveda.”

  1. 2. In your opinion, what are three strengths about the City of Chandler?

“Chandler is well run and financially stable. This has brought in a lot of businesses from outside of Arizona like the Price Corridor.  The quality of life Chandler has to offer – the parks, aquatic centers, sports complexes – is high as well.”

  1. 3. In your opinion, what are three areas that warrant improvement in the City of Chandler? 

1) “Public safety with a need for more police.” 

2) “Affordable housing with more emphasis on new single families.” 

3) “Smart balanced growth rather than unbridled.” 

4. As a councilmember, what are the three most important issues that you would want the Chandler City Council and Mayoral staff to address?

Same as above

5. What are at least three (one each) plans you would like to implement to make Chandler a better place for:

a. Chandler’s Residents: “The revitalization of older neighborhoods and put resources into that endeavor.”

b. Chandler’s Commercial Interests: “Balanced growth and affordable housing.”

c. Chandler’s Cultural and Educational Centers: “I think we do a good job in that area in partnering with Chandler Unified School District and the libraries and civic center and performing arts center. We should continue with those and establish more partnerships.  Chandler has many museums as well” 

6. Is there anything you would like the voter to know about you that was not addressed in the first five questions?

“ I am really focused on helping the community. My motto is Community Focused, Results Driven.”

Local politics is where the action takes place that directly affects people’s lives.

Beth Brizel and how she would pragmatically approach governing at the Council at moving the city and its people forward is a candidate Chandler residents should consider and determine if she is a good fit to elect in November 2020.
