Three Crucial Issues of Local Concern
Sedona, AZ (September 7, 2011) – On Thursday, September 15 at 8:00 a.m., Democrats of the Red Rocks will hold a public forum on three issues currently before Sedona citizens. Olde Sedona Bar and Grill 1407 West Highway 89a in Sedona will host the event. Doors open at 8:00 a.m. and program starts at 8:30 a.m. Breakfast will be served and the cost is $11.
Doors open at 8:00am at the Olde Sedona Bar and Grill, 1407 W. SR89A.
Cost is $11 which includes breakfast.
With some crucial local developments facing Sedona residents, DORR decided to focus the first meeting of the Fall on three areas:
1. The forthcoming Referendum on the Sedona City Council’s decision to support a route transfer of SR89A to the City
2. The move by a group of citizens to recall three members of the Sedona Fire District Governing Board
3. Re-districting: a report on the Yavapai County Supervisors’ decision on Alternate Map A and an update on the State Independent Redistricting Commission’s progress in re-drawing state and federal electoral maps.
This will be a chance for YOU to take part in all three issues. Learn what the issues are!
1. Two members of the Sedona City Council who supported the transfer, Barbara Litrell and Cliff Hamilton, will explain their decisions and why this is still relevant now. We are hoping members of the opposition to the transfer will also make their case. More details soon! There will be time for lots of questions.
2. Karen Schmidt and Karen Strauch will explain why they are part of the movement to recall three members of the Fire Board. Karen Daines, the Business Director for the Sedona Fire District, overseeing Finance and Budget, Human Resources, and Administration, has served in local government for over 14 years. She will give the history and full current situation. Members of the Board have been invited. It is hoped they, or their representatives, will attend.
3. We will have a short discussion on re-districting and a chance for you to find out the impact of the new county districts. The IRC is still working on Federal and State maps and you will be given the chance to sen d in your opinion!
