Scott Smith knows his pockets may not be as deep as some of his fellow candidates for governor but he’s not worried.Scott Smith makes at stop in Uptown to talk about his plans if elected as governor. Smith, former mayor of Mesa, resigned to run for governor. He is one of six candidates from the Republican party, with one Democrat running as well.

“They may have better bank accounts but we have a better message,” he said during a stop in Sedona on Wednesday, July 9. “They’ve offered enough promises they can’t deliver. Eventually the voters will see through the pandering and the bull and go where there is substance.”

Until April 15, Smith had served as the mayor of Mesa for six years. He stepped down in order to run for the state’s top spot and is one of six Republicans and one Democrat in the race.

“It was a very difficult decision because I not only had to leave being mayor two years early but I also had to step down two months early as president of the United States Conference of Mayors,” he said. “I loved holding both of those positions. I looked at Arizona and the foundation that Gov. [Jan] Brewer has laid which has brought us to the next level. But I believe the decisions we make in the next one to three years could set the course for the next 20 years.”
