Important decisions afoot for Prescott Valley voters

Prescott Valley voters will face several important decisions on the Primary Election ballots that were mailed this week.

Two candidates, incumbent Mayor Harvey Skoog and challenger Louie Lizza, are running for the mayor's chair.

Six candidates, Craig Arps, Douglas Bebb, Marty Grossman, Stephen Marshall, Michael Whiting, and Matt Zurcher, are running for three available council seats.

Today you can read candidates' answers to a number of questions posed by the Prescott Valley Tribune. Candidates also have participated in several public forums. Stories about them may be found here at PVtrib.com (search "forum," or the candidate's name). Please take the time to get to know your candidates and send in those ballots!

Voters also will have the opportunity to vote on Proposition 422, the Alternative Expenditure Limitation - Home Rule Option and Proposition 423, the new General Plan 2025.

The Home Rule option is just that - it keeps our spending authority in our own hands and out of those of the State. If the State handles our budget, it would put untenable limitations on our ability to run our own town. This proposition has been before the voters every four years since the 1980s, and PV has repeatedly approved it.

Prop 423, the new General Plan 2025, is a crucial blueprint for our future. This is not something slapped together by a few folks in town hall. Thousands of Prescott Valley residents of all ages participated in the document over the past year and a half, sharing their visions for the community. By State law the town must update the plan periodically. The town council elected to do so now because the town has changed so tremendously in the past 10 years. The document can remain fresh and we can take advantage of expanding opportunities.

If you are unclear about either of these propositions, please call the town at 928-759-3000 and get the information you need to make an informed decision.
