Beaver Creek Candidates Forum

When the moderator for the Beaver Creek Candidates Forum, held on Wednesday evening, asked to see a show of hands for those voters still undecided, over half the audience responded. The evening was set for the candidates to address the issues and present the qualities that makes each of them uniquely qualified to hold office, and in some cases, why their opponent is not. Held at Beaver Creek School, candidates Tom Thurman, Buck Buchanan, and Lance West running for Supervisor District 2; Angela LaFevre, Doug Ballard, Bob Thorpe and Brenda Barton running for the House in District 6, and Chester Crandall and Tom Chabin running for the Senate in District 6, made their best case to the multitude of undecided voters in attendance. The gloves came off early in the evening when, during his opening remarks, District Supervisor candidate Buck Buchanan challenged the voting record of opponent Tom Thurman, forcing Thurman to address those claims in his own opening statements. By the end of the evening, it would become apparent to the audience the major differences between the candidate's philosophies and temperaments - and, ultimately, who they think will best serve them in public office.

I also attended the Candidate’s Forum Oct 10. The notion of “having the gloves come off” when County Supervisor candidate Buchanan brought forward the incumbent’s voting record is interesting. Thurman said it made him “sad” to defend his voting record, when during the primary, his party affiliates agreed not to mention it. Buchanan’s comments were fact-based, polite, timely and (thankfully) brief.

Thurman’s voting record against rural spending in Yavapai County makes me sad, too, but that’s precisely the reason to challenge.. This is a new district, with new opportunities. If paving, prettying, and pumping Prescott is your highest priority, the incumbent might be your best choice. If you want genuine representation for Yavapai’s small, rural communities, and the core values we represent, VOTE for Alan “Buck” Buchanan.
