Council Members, I am writing to express my extreme disappointment in the behaviour of Mayor Coral Evans at the City Council meeting last night (5/9/17). At 1902 (7:02 PM), while matters were being discussed surrounding the importance of dark skies in our once lovely city, Coral was posting pictures on Instagram promoting blood donations in exchange for “The Ultimate Hershey’s Chocolate Chip Cookie”.
While I understand the importance of donating blood (I’m a donor), the Mayor, under no circumstances, should be promoting such things DURING A MEETING WHICH SHE IS PRESIDING OVER. It appears as though she has no interest in agenda items from which she will not gain anything, and that is a problem. She was elected to represent, and lead, the City of Flagstaff in a professional manner, and she, thus far, has failed to do so.
I, as well as others, would like an explanation as to why Mayor Evans sees fit to behave in such a manner. Please see that this happens in a timely manner. Thank you for your prompt attention to this rather disturbing matter.
This issue was also brought up recently on the Jeff Oravits Show by Elisha Dorfsmith. Clip available here.
