Phoenix, Arizona mayoral election, 2011[edit]

Peggy Neely was a candidate for mayor in the Phoenix, Arizona mayoral election, 2011. Like most candidates seeking political office, Ms. Neely supported a number of popular positions including immigration reform, jobs and political ethics. Some had charged that Neely has used her office in less than ethical ways,[2] including the use of personal e-mail to hide correspondence with a potential contractor.

Neely ended up in 3rd place with 12.73% of the vote [3] in the August 30th 2011 primary and did not proceed to the run-off election.
