In the conservative suburbs of Phoenix, Arizona winning approval of a bond issue is never a sure thing. But in the rapidly growing town of Gilbert, an 80 million dollar bond proposal to widen congested streets is generating an unusual level of political rancor. Even conservative Republican legislators who represent the town in the state Legislature have taken positions opposing the bond issue, irritating members of the Town Council, who voted 7 to 1 to put the issue before the voters next week as of May 13, 2003.
