The next meeting of the Big Park Regional Coordinating Council will be Thursday, December 8, 9 a.m., at the Sedona Fire Station #3, 125 Slide Rock Road, at which time the Big Park Council election will take place. In addition, Yavapai County Supervisor Chip Davis and Supervisor-elect Randy Garrison both will be in attendance. Below are statements from both candidates for the Big Park Council presidency.
Leadership is about understanding the importance of empowering people to be the best they can be. Deeds, not words is the measure.
We have a contest for president because I have pushed the envelope on presenting ideas to help the Village be a better community and to bring Big Park Council into legal compliance with Federal tax code.
I am the sole individual that invested in and championed a Welcome Center here in the Village so local businesses would have a real destination that advertises to tourists and locals alike.
I have sponsored charitable events, brought a new generation to the Council, and I moderated the debate between Randy Garrison and Diane Joens.
Now I wish to move forward with the Council on appointing an economic development committee. My roots, property and businesses are deep and lasting in the Village. I am asking the Council to return me to my post as leader.
