Recently, in historical accomplishment, you successfully recalled three members of the SFD Governing Board. Then, in an overwhelming victory, on May 15, 2012, you elected Nazih Hazime, Diane Schoen, and Corrie Cooperman to replace them.
In this short time, your new Board’s progress has been exceptional and they are proud to represent your interests within the District. Their goals to establish financial stability, protect your professional emergency services and work within the limits of authority are being decisively accomplished.
Diane and Corrie will serve the remaining two years of their predecessors’ terms but Nazih’s seat, and one other, are open for election in November.
Two of the recalled – then defeated – SFD Governing Board members have already declared their candidacy!
WE CANNOT ALLOW THEM TO SUCCEED! Nor can we allow them to “buy” the next election! Current SFD Governing Board Member, Nazih Hazime, and Sedona City Planning and Zoning Commissioner, Scott Jablow, are opposing their run.
Nazih and Scott will continue working toward a healthy future for your Fire District through strategic planning, fiscal responsibility, and professional training. They will adhere to – not work to avoid – Open Meeting Laws ensuring transparency and public involvement while guarding against wasteful and unnecessary spending.
They cannot do it alone.
They do not have political parties to fund their campaigns.
Their successful election depends entirely on the financial support of every citizen in this District. Only YOU can effectively safeguard continuity within the community, ethical Board practices, and compliance with the roles and responsibilities of a Fire Board.
Keep your political donations LOCAL — where they matter the most – where they can most directly — and immediately — BENEFIT YOU!
Nazih and Scott are depending on you to financially demonstrate your ongoing support for their efforts on your behalf.
