CWAG's annual candidate forum on water issues. 

With so much attention focused on Prescott’s Public Safety Personnel Retirement System debt in the approaching Prescott City Council election, it’s easy to forget the new council will be setting critical water policy during their time in office.

What are our most important water issues? Are the candidates prepared to set water management policy?

Come find out when the Citizens Water Advocacy Group hosts a forum  on water issues for Prescott mayor and council on Aug. 5 in the sanctuary at the Granite Peak Unitarian Universalist Congregation building, 882 Sunset Ave. in Prescott (two blocks behind True Value). 

Candidates will be available to meet with the public at 9:30 a.m. The forum will take place from 10 a.m. to noon. 

The three candidates for mayor are: Mary Beth Hrin, Greg Mengarelli, and Jean Wilcox (currently a Prescott Councilmember). There are six candidates for three council seats: Steve Blair (incumbent - is unable to participate in the forum), Constance Cantelme, Phil Goode, Greg Lazzell (incumbent - is unable to participate in the forum), Alexa Scholl, and Joseph Viccica.

Forum moderators will be CWAG Science Committee Chair Peter Kroopnick, Ph.D. and CWAG board member and former Verde River Basin Partnership Chair Ed Wolfe, Ph.D. Read the forum discussion questions at .
