Statement from Senator Vince Leach regarding the City of Flagstaff's illegal declaration

"We've seen the action that the mayor took today. We're in the middle of an unprecedented crisis. It's important the state speak with one voice. This action is not helpful, and it is illegal, and we plan to take this to the Arizona Attorney General to get it overturned. We are prepared to file a 1487 complaint, if necessary, which could result in the loss of state shared revenue."

Mayor Evans did what our state government should have done from the beginning. She is putting our lives ahead of profits. The health of our community is our priority so let her manage our city the way we want her to manage it. We don’t need you interfering with our local government and putting us at risk.

We here in Flagstaff place human life above profit. The politicians who disagree may change their mind about how essential golf courses and haircuts are when they start losing loved ones.

Our Mayor made the decision to protect the people of Flagstaff and we stand with her. Many people will lose their businesses, jobs and income. We will make that sacrifice to protect the most vulnerable among us. Money and material things can be replaced. Our economy can bounce back. Death is irreversible. By attacking Coral Evans for valuing human life over money, you have shown all of Arizona who you are and what matters most to you.

Get out of my city. And don't come crawling to Flagstaff when the rest of the state is full of sick people.

You can’t praise the idea of local control 90% of the time and then punish local governments because they do something you don’t like. Mayor Evans took action to protect Flagstaff, and I’m grateful for her efforts to protect my parents and my grandmother.
