Flagstaff Vice Mayor Adam Shimoni Endorses Charlie Odegaard for Mayor
"Councilmember Charlie Odegaard has the experience, compassion and integrity to be Flagstaff's next Mayor. His efforts on both the Water Commission and City Council provide him the understanding of how the City works and the role of the Mayor. Through his efforts on Council, Charlie has been instrumental in moving the City forward on large projects such as the 4th Street Bridge, Rio De Flag and the City's plan to address the Pension Liability. He supports the Climate Action and Adaptation Plan (CAAP) and has consistently advocated for the establishment of a youth commission. He understands the role of the public and respects voter approved initiatives. When working through challenging topics, he has an open mind and an open heart. He doesn't let politics or outside pressures play into his decision, and takes the time to listen to those with opposing points of view. The role of Mayor is to facilitate the conversation where all perspectives are welcome and heard while guiding the City forward. I have confidence that Charlie will do just that." - Flagstaff Vice Mayor Adam Shimoni
