    Hmmmm ….. so the resignation of Yavapai County Treasurer was worthy of headlines but replacing Sedona City Attorney never made the news?

    Wonder why??????

    What would be the best news of all is if Gov Ducey resigned and he was replaced with someone who made vacation rentals illegal. Frequently that’s a subject coming up in the daily Arizona Republic – people are damn mad about intrusions into their subdivisions and neighborhoods, especially Sedona and Phoenix. It just isn’t right – to allow such nonsense and permit strangers with their kids and dogs to invade our privacy. Almost on a daily basis we see the Phoenix Shuttle dropping off more temporary visitors.

    WE HATE IT, MR. DUCEY. (as if you care) Municipalities should be able to set their own rules.

    Why put it there? It was on Sedona eye ? I mean everyone reads the fine fine publication Sedona eye? Lol especially the riveting comment section.

    @Wunder Y:

    I “Wunder Y” you won’t use your real name?
    I “Wunder Y” you care why the city attorney is leaving?

  5. @John Daniels W Sedona says:

    So weird that u’d care.

    Why are u so engaged with every post on the eye? I wunder y u care and u won’t use ur real name.

    Don’t u have a life? Standard op to let the public know when a head department person leaves. Smells fishy imo. Could it be that pickels clearly stated that he had the city covered with chamber contract getting 55% of city-bed tax? Then to have the AG have the city take it back ( no longer can chamber get 55% of city-bed tax) ?????

  6. Wunder Y. says:

    Wunder Y @John Daniels W Sedona keeps reading Sedona Eye when it’s obviously such an annoyance to him/her?
    Wunder Y @John Daniels W Sedona continues to be so troubled over comments popping up on Sedona Eye?
    Hmmmm …….. could it be the information truly hits ongoing home runs?
    And how do we know “John Daniels W Sedona” is an authentic name as if we even care:-)

    Best regards,

    Actually everything your last post is completely wrong. You give way way way too much credit for the voice of nothing that you actually are. LOL

  8. John Daniels W Sedona says:

    @Wunder Y:

    You’re so funny, you question my authenticity yet you hide behind Wunder Y. I think it’s more to do with the fact that you don’t like being called out on your obvious hatred of the city. I’m retired and have nothing better to do than call you on your ****.

    Watching (name deleted by editor) write as John Daniels is amusing, often she criticizes others and advises them to “get a life” and then claims her doppelgänger is “retired and have nothing better to do.”

    To the subject at hand, as was the case with the last Sedona Police Chief, in the case of the chief even for so little as looking for another job, if you make the group in power look bad, they replace you. It’s much like the former Soviet Union, who were notorious for making those no longer in power disappear from pictures and the public record. IMO the Soy Boy’s of the Sedona Red Rock News, being true to their nature, assist in this.

    The current condition of Sedona reflects the actions of a small group of greedy, power hungry individuals running a small town IMO. Nothing lasts forever. Not even the power of those that thought they were on top.
