Election season has begun. We know that because a misinformation campaign is already underway across our community.
We have become aware that there is an email in circulation with hard copies being distributed at various locations in Sedona that attributes a position to us that we in fact do not hold. No one has asked us our position on this matter.
The message seems to be intended to create an emotional response on a charged issue. The email we saw alleges that, if elected, we would attempt to establish Sedona as a Sanctuary City.
1. This issue is not before the Council and as far as we know has never been raised or discussed.
2. We do not support the idea of Sanctuary Cities or Sanctuary Counties on ANY issue as they violate the law and constitution of the State of Arizona.
As we prepare to file paperwork to become candidates for the Sedona City Council we encourage anyone with questions about our positions on specific issues to please contact us. We want voters to know our positions on the issues that impact our community. We welcome that opportunity. We can be reached by email at info@VoteSedona.com.

Thank you for addressing misinformation at the source. Important for truth to reign.
kind of outrageous that the Red Rock News refused to publish this information. What is more local than the city council?
I’m so pleased that you are clearing this up publicly. The message was shared with me twice, and in each case I responded that I requested attribution. They message I saw also implicated our mayor.
I will circulate yourr clarification. Wishing you both success!
So sorry to hear this. Disappointing and sad to hear. Why???
Best to you!
Holly and Kathy I agree with you that a Sanctuary city is not acceptable here in Sedona.
I would much rather read the actual accusation you refer to and object to than your interpretation of it . Do you have it and are willing to fully print it out so we readers can decide for ourselves.
Also, don’t hesitate to critique it if you want to so we have your side of the issue.
Thanks for your input so far as it has gone. Your reply with added information and opinion is welcome.
Thanks for your message. We have a hard copy of the message and would be happy to show it to you, if you would like to meet. Please email us directly at info@VoteSedona.com if you would like to arrange getting together.
