WE'RE DOWN TO AGENDA ITEM FOUR.

CONSIDERATION AND ADOPTION OF RESOLUTION NUMBER 2022-58, RESOLUTION OF THE FLAGSTAFF CITY COUNCIL DECLARING OFFICIAL AND ADOPTING THE RESULTS OF THE GENERAL SPECIAL ELECTION HELD ON NOVEMBER 8TH, 2022.

MS.. SALTZBURG. YES.

THANK YOU. MAYOR DEASY GOOD AFTERNOON, MAYOR AND COUNCIL.

MY NAME IS STACEY SALTZBURG.

I AM YOUR CITY CLERK.

I'M GOING TO BRING UP A PRESENTATION HERE REALLY QUICK.

BEAR WITH ME.

ALL RIGHT. YOU ALL COULD SEE THAT.

THERE WE GO. ALL RIGHT, SO I'M HERE THIS AFTERNOON SEEKING ADOPTION OF RESOLUTION NUMBER 2022-58 FOR THE CANVASS OF THE OFFICIAL RESULTS OF THE NOVEMBER 8TH, 2022 GENERAL ELECTION.

SO AT OUR ELECTION THIS YEAR, WE DID HAVE A 62% VOTER TURNOUT WITH OVER 26,000 BALLOTS CAST.

82% OF OUR VOTERS DID VOTE EARLY IN THIS ELECTION.

I ALWAYS THINK THAT'S A GOOD THING TO CALL OUT EACH ELECTION CYCLE BECAUSE IT DOES, I THINK, SPEAK TO THE IMPORTANCE OF THE EARLY VOTING OPTIONS FOR OUR COMMUNITY.

OUR TWO PROPOSITIONS, BOTH PASSED BY A PRETTY WIDE MARGIN, WHICH IS EXCITING NEWS FOR THE CITY.

AND THERE IS A LOT OF GRATITUDE TO BE EXPRESSED HERE TO THE TO ALL OF THE PEOPLE THAT WORKED ON THESE PROPOSITIONS AND ALL OF THE OUTREACH AND EDUCATION THAT WAS DONE LEADING UP TO THE ELECTION.

IN OUR MAYORAL RACE, WE HAVE TWO CANDIDATES, OUR INCUMBENT, MR. DEASY, AND WE HAD ANOTHER CANDIDATE, MS..

DAGGETT. MS..

DAGGETT WAS VOTED IN AS THE NEXT MAYOR BEGINNING IN DECEMBER OF THIS YEAR.

IN OUR COUNCIL MEMBER RACE.

WE DID HAVE A VERY INTERESTING YEAR THIS YEAR WITH ONLY TWO OFFICIAL CANDIDATES AND THEN FIVE OFFICIAL WRITE IN CANDIDATES.

WE DID HAVE A SUCCESSFUL WRITE IN ELECTION IN TERMS OF OF FOLKS MEETING THE REQUIRED THRESHOLD.

SO WE HAVE AUSTIN ATHLON, LAURIE MATTHEWS AND KARA HOUSE, WHO WERE ELECTED TO A FOUR YEAR TERM.

AND DEBORAH HARRIS WAS ELECTED TO A TWO YEAR TERM, WHICH IS THE REMAINDER OF THE TERM THAT WAS VACATED BY FORMER VICE MAYOR DAGGETT.

BEFORE WE MOVE INTO QUESTIONS, I WOULD JUST LIKE TO EXTEND MY GRATITUDE TO COCONINO COUNTY ELECTIONS FOR THEIR WORK IN CONDUCTING THE ELECTIONS THIS YEAR.

THERE IS SO MUCH WORK AND DEDICATION THAT GOES INTO RUNNING ELECTIONS AND I REALLY JUST CANNOT SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS ABOUT THE FOLKS WHO ENSURE QUALITY SECURITY AND HONEST ELECTIONS FOR OUR COUNTY.

AND WITH THAT, I AM AVAILABLE FOR ANY QUESTIONS THAT THE COUNCIL MAY HAVE.

THANK YOU CITY CLERK.

ANY QUESTIONS AT THIS TIME, COUNCIL.

ALL RIGHT, WITH THAT, I MOVE TO READ RESOLUTION NUMBER 2022-58 BY TITLE ONLY.

SECOND SECONDED BY VICE MAYOR SWEET.

[00:05:04]

ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION? ALL THOSE IN FAVOR. AYE.

ANY OPPOSED.

THAT CARRIES UNANIMOUSLY CITY CLERK.

RESOLUTION OF THE FLAGSTAFF CITY COUNCIL DECLARING OFFICIAL AND ADOPTING THE RESULTS OF THE GENERAL SPECIAL ELECTION HELD ON NOVEMBER 8TH, 2022.
