Step Up and Contact Prescott City Council NOW!

Thanks for Save the Dells for keeping us informed about the Prescott City Council meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 16. Prescott Indivisible requests that our members take action.

Our feedback is critical in showing the council just how much the public values participation and transparency in the decision-making processes that impact us all. As we have seen in the past few weeks, a strong public outcry was responsible for earning the public several more opportunities to provide input, as well as opening several of the process meetings to the public. 

Still crafting your comment? It’s not too late to make a difference! Show Mayor Mengarelli and the rest of the City Council that we take their invitation to comment seriously by submitting your input via phone, email or sharing during the city council meeting, and requesting their respectful consideration. Respond to the Public Comment Period  by Monday, February 15th to ensure that it is received in time to be shared re input on the five finalists and/or the process by which a council person is selected. Submit your commentHERE.  It will be read aloud by the City Clerk on the 16th.

Tuesday, February 16th: Special Voting Meeting at 9:30am will include interviews and selection of your new councilmember. Details for public viewing and interview times are available here.

Why is this so important? Having your message read directly to council members avoids the risk that your message will be lost, disregarded, or ignored. It also shows the council that the public values these opportunities and that it is necessary to continue providing them in the future. And perhaps most importantly of all, stepping up to have your thoughts shared reinforces that each member of the public is to be heard, respected, and valued for their commitment to helping make their community a better place.

The Prescott Indivisible community has joined with other organizations in writing letters to the dCourier’s editor, Rant and Raves, etc. You can view some of the comments on the Save the Dells facebook page in the event you need inspiration.

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.
