March ballots in hands of Prescott Valley voters
Special to the Tribune

The Town Clerk's office this past week mailed out ballots in batches to voters eligible to participate in the March 12 municipal elections, Town Clerk Diane Russell said.

Russell said 20,727 Prescott Valley residents are eligible to vote in the election, up from 19,701 for the municipal election two years ago. Feb. 11 marked the deadline for registering to vote or re-registering if a voter changed his or her name, address or party affiliation.

Voters will pick a mayor and three council members.

Candidates for mayor, a four-year term, are incumbent Harvey Skoog and challenger Louie Lizza.

Running for the two four-year council seats are appointee Michael Whiting, Douglas Bebb and Stephen Marshall.

Three candidates are running for the two-year, open council seat: Craig Arps, Marty Grossman and Matt Zurcher.

The council will have at least two new members because Patty Lasker decided to not seek re-election, and appointee Don Tjiema chose to not hold onto his seat.

Voters also will decide two ballot measures: Proposition 422, home rule, which keeps budget control in the hands of the town and not the state; and Proposition 423, the General Plan 2025 update. Neither ballot measure has any organized opposition.

The election is by mail only, with voters dropping their completed ballots in the mail or in the ballot box near the parking lot at the Civic Center, 7501 E. Civic Circle. The deadline for dropping off ballots in the ballot box is 7 p.m. March 12.
