Wade Carlisle, candidate for Arizona State Senate (LD6) and Arizona House of Representative (LD6) candidates Bobby Tyler and Felicia French will be featured speakers at the Democrats of the Red Rocks monthly breakfast on Thursday October 18. The breakfast will be held at Olde Sedona Family Restaurant, 1405 W SR 89A, starting at 8AM.


Carlisle seeks to unseat incumbent State Senator Sylvia Allen in the November 6 election.  He was the Vice-Mayor of Holbrook but recently resigned in order to concentrate on the Senate campaign.  He served on the Holbrook council for thirteen years.  Carlisle works for the railroad and is a substitute teacher.


There are two Legislative District Six house representative seats also up for election on November 6.


Bobby Tyler, the current Mayor of Holbrook, is running for one of those two seats.  He is a third generation Arizonan who has spent over 33 years working as a machinist in the power industry.


Retired Army Colonel Felicia French served as a medical evacuation pilot and is a registered nurse and educator with masters’ degrees in both management and sustainable solutions.  She is a resident of Pine, and is seeking the other LD6 house seat.


Legislative District Six, which includes Sedona and the Verde Valley, spreads from Snowflake and Payson on the east, to beyond Tonto Basin to the south, west beyond Williams, and north to Tusayan.


Election Day is Tuesday, November 6.  Mail in ballots for voters were sent out October 10.  Mailed ballots must be received back before the date of the election.  Ballots can also be dropped off at polling sites on election day, or in the drop box on the east side of Sedona City Hall by 7PM on Election Day.


Arizona will elect a U.S. Senate seat, nine U.S. House seats, the governor and several other state executive positions, all 30 state Senate seats and all 60 state House seats.  Two state Supreme Court justices and four state appellate court judges are standing for retention, and there are five statewide ballot measures on the ballot.  In Sedona and its environs, there are three local propositions on the ballot, as well as three seats on Sedona Fire District Governing Board, and one District 3 seat on the Yavapai College Governing Board.
