Formal Action Agenda Item for Mandatory Use of Cloth Face Coverings

The citizens of Prescott/Prescott Valley deserve to know your reasons for being one of the few cities in Arizona (and a popular tourist destination) to refuse to mandate the wearing of cloth face coverings except when not feasible for medical reasons or for children under the age of two.  Please consider drafting an ordinance and placing this item for discussion on the next regular City Council agenda. There are plenty of cities in Arizona with good ordinances that can used as an example.

It seems that the majority of public opinion favors wearing of cloth face coverings when out in public. We deserve to know the reasons that each and every one of you have for not considering such an ordinance. Yavapai Co. is accelerating in cases and deaths. RESPONSE TO THIS COMMENT IS REQUESTED. (Include all your contact info).

Prescott Indivisible was founded in 2017, when Paul Hamilton and Nicole Romine put an ad in the local paper, requesting local progressives to show up at the library. Over 100 people lined up. In short order, we had formed a local chapter of the national Indivisible movement. Within six months we adopted a set of Guidelines that sets the framework in which we work, designed a logo and printed and sold t-shirts. Our mailing list quickly expanded from 100 to over 1,200. We usually have 100 or more attend our general monthly meetings.

Prescott Indivisible has a strong track record of activism. We adopted the team concept: Communication/Events; Voter Education and Elections; Education; Environment; Human Rights; Immigration and Peacekeepers to assist with safely issues. Initially we had a steering committee that consisted of volunteers. After our guidelines were adopted, the steering committee is made up of elected officers and members at large and the heads of the various teams, or their designees. A diverse group of community activists, social justice advocates and others that have volunteer ties to non-profits and religious organizations, the steering committee assists the teams when asked and sets the agendas.

Our teams and their members have worked diligently to make their voices heard. We have made thousands of calls, mailed hundreds of postcards to our legislators in Arizona and in congress. We have collaborated with like-minded organizations to advocate for issues of crucial importance to Arizona and the nation.
