SEDONA, Ariz. — I'm Donna Michaels, and as the current Yavapai County Supervisor, I want to share with you some of my proven successes serving the 3rd District.

  • Agriculture Advocacy: We invited the Director of the U.S. Forest Service to Yavapai County for a historic meeting with U.S. Rep. Klain, Arizona Sen. Bennet, and State Reps. Bliss and Gosar to address the critical issues of cattle grazing and OHVs directly.

As a result of the precedent-setting conference, the USFS developed a Memorandum of Understanding on Cattle Permittee Allocation, establishing, for the first time, top-level federal awareness of OHV issues on public lands.

  • Affordable housing: The only supervisor to advocate for site rent stabilization for residents of manufactured housing complexes in District 3 and across the state.

So everyone, smile at your brothers and sisters…

These powerful lyrics Youngbloods The 1967 song “Let's Get Together” still resonates with me deeply today. This song has special meaning to me. In January 1967, I returned from military service in Taiwan and Vietnam amidst violent protests against the war. My only daughter was born in October of that year, and I remember listening to this song as a meaningful lullaby for both of us.

This message is not against anyone or anything.Instead, we will highlight some often-overlooked facts that should influence your decision when voting for Yavapai County Supervisor.

Fact #1: There is no Democratic Party chapter in Sedona.Because affiliates cannot endorse candidates before the primary election, I have decided to run DORR. IIndependent An organization that advocates democratic views. like that, Each voter Independently Decide who the best candidates are.

Fact #2: All other districts in Yavapai County lean heavily toward conservative Republicans, so for the foreseeable future the composition of the Board of Supervisors will likely be 4 Republicans to 1 Democrat. Would any Democrats disagree? What would it take for a District 3 Supervisor to be successful for the district and the county?

Fact #3: Our Board of Supervisors elected Democrat Donna Michaels as vice chair. Her functioning and ability to cooperate The fact that she took on this role under difficult circumstances speaks volumes about her abilities.

Fact #4: Results matter! Supervisor Michaels She has been extremely effective in bringing attention and perspective to issues within her district and Yavapai County. Below are a few examples:

  • Leading the way in water conservation: As a founding member of the Arizona Rural Groundwater Legislative Coalition, Donna has informed the Governor's Water Policy Council to advance legislation to ensure water security for rural communities.
  • Protecting public lands Through the Off-Highway Vehicle Act. House Bill 1176 (Unanimously approved) is now a coordinated administrative step with Senate Bill 1567, which the Governor just signed. Both bills aim to fund sheriff's offices across the state, mandate education, and reduce harm to our open spaces and private property owners. For more information, www.SupervisorDonnaMichaels.com
  • Played a major role in securing $45,665,225 in federal funding for county infrastructure improvementssRoads, water, broadband, Jerome landslide mitigation, flood mitigation, etc.
  • Directed $500,000 to maintain all 15 county libraries. We also stepped up library services amid a major budget crisis caused by the pandemic.

Donna is a natural “workaholic” who excels in her research and collaboration with key stakeholders both within and outside of government to positively impact the Verde Valley region.

I believe Donna should be given the opportunity to secure more funding and complete the multi-year project. We cannot afford to lose all of this ongoing, groundbreaking collaboration.
