Prescott Valley Mayor Skoog reports raising $1,520 for March election

Mayor Harvey Skoog has raised $1,520 to hold onto his seat in the March 12 elections, according to a campaign finance report he filed in advance of the Jan. 31 deadline.

Contributions to the Skoog for Mayor Committee include $390 apiece from property managers Sarah and Rod Hoffman of Prescott and Yampa Precision Chief Executive Officer Michael Barber of Prescott Valley and $200 from Skoog. Sarah Hoffman is one of Skoog's nine children.

The report for Skoog covers money raising from Oct. 30 through Dec. 31. The report lists no spending during the time frame.

Skoog, who is seeking re-election to his third four-year term, is the only candidate so far in the upcoming election who must file a campaign finance report. The other candidates filed campaign threshold statements, indicating they do not plan to raise and spend more than $500.

Skoog faces a challenge March 12 from Louie Lizza, a retired New York City police officer.

Incumbent Michael Whiting and challengers Douglas Bebb and Stephen Marshall are running for two four-year seats on the council. Craig Arps, Marty Grossman and Matt Zurcher are vying for a two-year seat.

The council will have at least two new members in June because Patty Lasker is not seeking re-election and appointee Don Tjiema decided against running to hold onto his seat. Whiting is an appointee as well.

Prescott Valley voters in March also will decide two ballot measures: Proposition 422, the Home Rule Option question, which gives town staff more flexibility in preparing budgets; and Proposition 423, the General Plan 2025 update.

Voters will receive mail-only ballots and do not go to the polls. They will have an opportunity to hear the candidates during a forum that the Prescott Valley Economic Prosperity Committee scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m. Jan. 30 in the Prescott Valley library, 7401 E. Civic Circle.
