As a healthcare leader and Navajo County resident, I would like to ask you to join me in voting Yes on Proposition 421 to protect our county’s public safety services.
As the CEO of the county’s largest employer (Summit Healthcare), I understand the need to manage revenues and expenses. Without an offset to the loss of revenues due to imminent closure of the Navajo Generating Station, Cholla Power Plant and Kayenta Mine, public safety services, including law enforcement services, may need to be significantly reduced.
The jail tax will help offset revenue shortfalls. The proposed 1/3 of a cent sales tax increase would be shared by local residents and visitors, so it does not place a burden solely on county and city residents.
Please join me in voting Yes on Prop 421 to protect our public safety services.
