8 file for PV mayor, council seats
Prescott Valley Tribune

Eight people filed by the 5 p.m. deadline Wednesday to run for mayor and three Town Council seats in the election next March, Town Clerk Diane Russell said.

Incumbent Mayor Harvey Skoog is seeking his third four-year term, and faces a challenge from Louie Lizza, a retired New York City police officer who has been active on the community facilities district issue at the StoneRidge subdivision.

Skoog submitted petitions bearing 556 signatures Dec. 3, and Lizza turned in petitions with 378 signatures Tuesday.

Candidates for the two four-year council seats are council appointee Michael Whiting and would-be challengers Stephen Marshall and Doug Bebb. Whiting submitted 329 signatures Dec. 3, and Marshall turned in 320 signatures Wednesday. Bebb collected 349 signatures, which he submitted Wednesday.

Three men are vying for the two-year seat: Marty Grossman, Craig Arps and Matt Zurcher. Grossman submitted 339 signatures Monday, Arps collected 376 signatures that he turned in Tuesday and Zurcher turned in 325 signatures Wednesday.

Council appointee Don Tjiema did not turn in petitions to seek election to a four-year seat. He was unavailable for comment Wednesday after the filing deadline.

His decision not to run means the council will have at least two new members next June. Councilwoman Patty Lasker previously announced she would not seek re-election.

Would-be mayoral contender Kevin Moran filed a campaign threshold statement, but he did not submit petitions, according to Russell. Lisa Imburgia, who ran unsuccessfully against Skoog in 2009, never formed a campaign committee or filed a threshold statement, which commits candidates to raise and spend no more than $500.

Aspiring candidates must submit signatures from at least 284 registered voters who live in Prescott Valley.
