Federal/County Legislative Alert + AZ IRC Meeting this week

Coconino County Democratic Party with Democrats of the Red Rocks issues these calls to action

FEDERAL

1.   CHANGING SEN. KYRSTEN SINEMA ON THE FILIBUSTER:  Sen. Sinema has just stated she is NOT receiving significant numbers of calls to eliminate the filibuster.  Let’s prove her wrong.    Contact the Senator BY PHONE to say: 

It’s a mistake to take filibuster off the table.  Please issue a public statement that you will reconsider your position if Republicans obstruct the wartime level funding needed to combat Covid 19 and to rescue our economy.”   

Contact Sen Sinema at (202) 224-4521( DC) or (602) 598-7327 (Phoenix). You can email her through her website at “http://www.sinema.senate.gov”  Tag the Senator at @senatorsinema,

2.  SUPPORT $1.9 TRILLION STIMULUS PLAN.  SINEMA, KELLY AND O’HALLERAN.  

Contact Senators Kelly and Sinema and Rep. O’Halleran to urge they support President Biden’s $1.9 trillion stimulus plan.   This plan must be adopted without significant modification as it will fund indispensable Covid 19 relief, stimulate our faltering economy, and support front line workers and local governments. 

Sen. Sinema:  Call (202) 224-4521 (DC) or (602) 598-7327.  Email via her website at “http://www.sinema.senate.gov”  Tag the Senator at @senatorsinema,

COCONINO COUNTY

Coconino County Board of Supervisors Update  1-31-21

#1 Priority for the County is vaccine distribution.  SHORTAGE OF VACCINE is key to current distribution issues. The County has the capacity, meaning they are ready to get the vaccine into people’s arms with facilities now available and soon to be available (partner sources such as FMC, North Country, drug stores such as Safeway and Frys, and more) in Flagstaff, Page, Williams, Fredonia and the Navajo reservation.

Partners with the County are available on Coconino County webpage: coconino.az. gov/2547/vaccine-info. Links with info about phone#, scheduling, and locations are on these sites. Each has their own system of registering. 

The County has an info line at 928-679-7300 M-F 8am-7pm, Saturday/Sunday 8am-3pm where you can get up-to-date info on where you can get the vaccine and/or needing help with transportation, scheduling, etc. This service is especially important for seniors and callback is rapid.

Presently 1a and 1b populations including adults 65 and over are eligible for the vaccine. As vaccine becomes available more categories will open up. Check county site daily for the most current info on vaccine sites and availability.
