Sedona AZ (April 2, 2012) – Want more information before deciding which Sedona Fire District Board candidates to vote for in the upcoming election?
Come hear the candidates speak on Thursday, April 12, from 12:30 – 2:00 at Yavapai College’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute’s Lunch and Learn program, in room 34 of Yavapai College’s Sedona campus (on Cultural Park Road, across Rte 89A from Red Rock High School) .
The program will begin with the candidates introducing themselves as individuals by answering the following questions: What personal path led you to being a SFD Board candidate, e.g. where did you grow up? what has been your career?, when and why did you move to Sedona? what experiences led you to become personally interested in the SFD? what first-hand “learning experiences” led you to develop your particular views about the SFD?
Next, each candidate will be paired with the person he or she is running against to speak about the key topics in this campaign:
Dave Blauert, Diane Schoen, and Justin Paffrath will offer their view of the SFD’s current fiscal status, and what it will take to ensure the future funding required to sustain and improve the organization.
Charles Christensen and Nazih Hazime will explore the need for Fire and EMS services in the SFD and how they will help to ensure these services’ professionalism.
Phyllis Erick and Corrie Cooperman will explain where they stand on the Chapel/Midway Station.
For the last few minutes, the audience will have a chance to meet in a small group with the particular pair of candidates on which they are still undecided or who discussed an issue that especially interests them.
Bring your lunch (or come for complimentary coffee, tea, water, and a little snack) and join the conversation at 12:30, or come from 1:00 – 2:00 to hear this important conversation.
