Free Yavapai County Citizens Academy Welcomes All

Yavapai County Board of Supervisors in session

Sedona AZ (November 9, 2018) – On September 9, 2018, the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors approved the development of a “Citizens Academy.” The academy, which is currently accepting applications for attendees, will provide Yavapai County residents with insights into how County government works, promote open lines of communication, and offer a clear understanding of how County services affect the everyday lives of its citizens.

Anyone interested in attending the inaugural class in Prescott, Arizona, can apply by visiting www.yavapai.us. Applications to attend the Citizens Academy must be submitted online.

Participants will interact with the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors, County leadership, and other citizens in this collaborative and informative course. By the end of the class, participants will have an increased understanding of the organizational structure and operation of the various County departments that influence the quality of life in Yavapai County.

The Citizens Academy is at no charge and is open to anyone living in Yavapai County, 18 years of age or older. Classes will be offered once a year in Prescott and again in the Verde Valley. The class will accommodate 20 participants and registration is on a first come, first served basis. The Academy will consist of eight classes, each of which will highlight various Yavapai County departments. Classes run each Thursday evening from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and a light dinner will be provided.

The class will be held at the Yavapai County Board Room, 1015 Fair Street, Prescott AZ 86305 on the following dates: 1/17, 1/24, 1/31, 2/7, 2/21, 2/28, 3/7, 3/14 (no class on 2/14). The Academy will conclude with a graduation ceremony at a Board of Supervisors meeting shortly after the completion of the class.

    Because several of the District races in Arizona fall in the uncounted Senate race, I’m wondering whether Tom O’Halleran will lose because of his race being so close?

    Interesting thing about politicians. Tom O’Halleran for years known as an avid Republican failed to get elected under that flag as he climbed the stairs to political acclaim. So what did he do? Well he then ran as an Independent. Failed again. So he turned Democrat. Yep. Politicians seem to have a blood line unto themselves. At least that’s one thing (among many IMO) that Donald Trump has going for him. NOT a politician which means he can’t be bought and owes nothin’ to nobody!

    Should be attended by the Supervisors themselves.

    Do not reelect Randy Garrison no matter what!
