Diane Joens would be strong asset on city council


Cottonwood voters have the benefit of many fine candidates to chose from in this election. We are lucky to have so many citizens wanting to contribute to the community through public service.

It also makes for a tough choice.

I hope you'll consider voting for Diane Joens in the March 11 election. She has so much to offer our community.

Diane Joens is a multi-talented, hard-working, innovative leader. I have worked with her in a variety of capacities over the last four years. These are my observations:

• Diane has a wealth of experience that she employs freely in all her interests.

• She is an excellent problem solver.

• Her consistent level of professionalism and high standards make her a natural leader and role model.

• She is a fast learner, and enjoys conquering new tasks.

• She is an excellent networker and shares knowledge with others unselfishly.

• Diane has a great sense of humor and develops strong working relationships with others from diverse backgrounds.

• She puts others at ease with her calm demeanor and sympathetic nature.

• She masters each task, computer program, and challenge she faces with determination and creativity.

• She has a deep commitment to community and quality of life and uses her talents to further those causes.

Regardless of which candidates you choose to support, please vote on March 11 at the County Recorder's Office or Civic Center and make your voice heard.

Re-elect proven Cottonwood leaders


The leadership over the past few years on the Cottonwood City Council is one that is solid, stable and visionary.

For decades, Cottonwood has been the trade center of the Verde Valley and will continue to be, give the current leadership of the mayor and incumbent Town Council members. Cottonwood is the home to good, quality growth that provides and fuels an economic tax base that is necessary for the City to continue to provide services to its citizens.

We maintain that “if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.” We urge all the citizens of Cottonwood to vote to retain the current mayor (Ruben Jauregui) and City Council members (Clarice Shamrell, Karen Pfeifer, Randy Lowe), who are running for re-election. They are proven leaders.
