200 NAIC Leaders Take On Candidates in Forum

With 200 leaders assembled at Flagstaff Federated Community Church, all candidates for Flagstaff City Council and mayor attended the accountability forum, as did some of the candidates for Legislative District 6. Candidates were grilled on gun violence, financial aid for Dreamers and city and state funding for public education, with most agreeing to support NAIC's agenda items.

All mayoral and city council candidates pledged to support de-escalation training for police and other public safety officers, and participating candidates for legislative office pledged to restore funding for public education, noting that an educated workforce attracts high-paying jobs -- the same argument leaders public made the previous month.
