Mayor and Council,
My name is Stan Garner. I am a resident of Payson.
Regarding an article in the December 4, edition of The
Payson Reformer, posted on the Mayor’s Facebook page,
Payson First. On the last page of the paper, titled MHA
EVENT TIMELINE. Under Special Notes, item 7, states:
“Su Connell, TOP council woman for 12 years and Secretary of MHA Foundation, occupied an office for RCEA,
SLE in the Town Hall Complex from 2011 to 2018. After
her passing on 10/16/18 all records kept there for RCEA,
SLE mysteriously disappeared.”
Su was Secretary for MHA foundation from March, 2016
till 2018, she was not appointed to the RCEA, SLE until
2015. She subsequently became Secretary/Treasurer of
that body. She stepped down from that position in 2018
due to the devastating effects of her brain cancer. Shortly
thereafter the Town Manager requested that RCEA, SLE
vacate the office as the Town needed the space.
The records did not “mysteriously disappear,” they are
intact in the hands of the RCEA, SLE where they belong.
Su is not here to defend herself, but I am. We were
married on October 6, 2012 at Tonto Natural Bridge,
one of her favorite projects, and I personally witnessed
her dedication to this Town and its residents. She always
responded to requests by citizens for assistance with
issues. The Town and I lost her beautiful smile on October 16, 2018. To suggest that Su Connell would have
been involved with a supposedly corrupt organization,
charitable or otherwise, is to impugn her character and
integrity. Anyone who knew her knows she would never
participate in such activity. The recent announcement by
MHA and U of A affirms that fact. I hereby request, nay
demand, that Mayor Morrissey and Councilman Ferris
correct the record and issue an apology for misstating
the facts of the matter and defaming her character. Any
further comments or statements defaming Su Connell’s
character and integrity may result in legal action.

Because of the struggling economy, several of our customers have asked us
to repair transmissions or install used parts to save money. We have partnered
up with several part suppliers and car and truck dismantlers. This has given
us the ability to find low-mileage engines, transmissions, transfer cases and
differentials, all with one to three year warranties. We can find any part for any
type of vehicle, with or without installation.
We Rebuild At Our Own Shop
We currently have 150 rebuilt transmissions and transfer
cases on-site with one to three year warranties. If you want
new parts we are authorized to get you dealer parts with
