We’re hoping the Payson Town Council study session on adopting a wildland-urban interface fire code was some kind of very elaborate joke.
I’m writing in response to two letters to the editor: Lawrence Hoffenberg’s Feb. 28 letter and Jeannette Sindik’s March 4 letter. As a member of Rep. Paul Gosar’s staff, I can say with absolute certainty that these letters were misleading and completely misrepresent the facts.
It is a shame that some of your readers often believe Raymond Spatti actually knows what he’s talking about. Here are some facts to set the record straight about HB2587:
Are you kidding me? If there is anyone who lives in Arizona besides me who wonders why the Legislature is so consumed with passing useless bills that have no meaning, please remember who these “public servants” are come election time.
The family of Allyson Rene Randall wish to thank all those involved with the planning of her beautiful service. We are also very grateful to those who were able to attend the Celebration of her Life.
Just wanted to let you know how great our paper delivery person is.
The state Supreme Court just added another powerful incentive to carefully consider a merger or joint powers agreement for Rim Country’s valiant, but scattered fire departments.
We hear it from the Arizona Legislature every time Congress passes a law: Give power to the level of government closest to the people — not a far-away bureaucracy. Makes a heck of a bumper sticker: Don’t tread on me.
A group of Prescott activists met at the office of Congressman Paul Gosar on Jan. 9. We were there to plead for mercy for our fellow Americans.
Here we go again. For the eighth year in a row, the Legislature has once again introduced a bill to eliminate public notices in newspapers.
As usual the editor is all for more and bigger government, more rules, more cost. This subject is no different. So much of the fire department merger editorial is without substance.
State Rep. Brenda Barton recently pushed HB 2587 through her committee to minimize penalties for animal cruelty perpetrators and maximize criminalization of whistleblowers.
Just a note of warning to all to beware of Arizona speed traps, specifically, Star Valley, just east of Payson. Star Valley uses traffic cameras set at the bottom of steep hills entering town with a sudden speed reduction from 55 MPH to 45 MPH with little warning.
Unlike the story told by a disgruntled voter, I wrote Congressman Gosar to express my concerns about the threat to our electrical grid from a magnetic pulse delivered by a high altitude nuclear explosion from a communist country like North Korea or future nuclear threats from Iran, or even from our own sun.
I couldn’t agree with Lawrence Hoffenberg more! I too have written letters to Dr. Gosar and have had to sometimes wait a long time for a response.
