FLAGSTAFF - City of Flagstaff mayoral candidate Sara Presler-Hoefle turned in her petitions Dec. 9 to the Flagstaff city clerk with a total of 730 signatures. In her campaign to become the mayor of Flagstaff, Presler-Hoefle is focusing on three major areas she feels will improve the quality of life for Flagstaff citizens:
Return the middle class to Flagstaff by recruiting companies with better paying jobs;
Preserve the Flagstaff everyone loves by growing and building in an environmentally friendly way-something that can be achieved by offering building incentives while simultaneously raising the standards;
Ensure fair and effective governmental processes for all citizens of Flagstaff.
Other key areas Presler-Hoefle intends to address as mayor include investing in our children and youth with a focus on education and family support; housing issues utilizing community partnerships; prioritizing artistic and cultural events, addressing Flagstaff's high crime rate; and the creation of new City court space.
Presler-Hoefle is currently employed as a public defense attorney and has represented the needs of children, the mentally ill, and low-income criminal clients. She also teaches business law and ethics at Northern Arizona University.
"I am an energetic, positive Flagstaff professional, and my husband Scott and I truly love this community," Presler-Hoefle said. "I am excited to tackle the issues facing this community by progressively working together with City officials, staff and the residents of Flagstaff."
