Jeff Oravits Running For Flagstaff City Council Re-election

For immediate release:

Since first being elected in 2012, Jeff Oravits has been leading the way to make Flagstaff a better place. Oravits was the driving force behind a much needed plan to fix Flagstaff’s streets, which resulted in a $100,000,000 voter approved streets and infrastructure repair plan. Oravits’ initiative to curb Police turnover, PD was losing 30% of its force per year, produced a huge turnaround bringing vacancies to zero in just one year! And while many talk about transparency and accessibility, only to quickly forget about it once getting elected, Oravits has delivered, publishing every vote, and that of his colleagues, attending countless events, bringing events to Flagstaff and doing weekly radio updates.

Recognizing Flagstaff’s position as Northern Arizona’s regional hub, Oravits has tirelessly worked to improve Flagstaff’s economy, has developed deep relationships (relationships that were non-existent for Flagstaff before he took office) with State and Federal Representatives, helping bring Flagstaff its first ever Gubernatorial debate and first legislative budget town hall. Jeff is committed to continue and expand this access and outreach if re-elected and looks forward to working with as many people as possible to make Flagstaff the greatest small city in the nation.

A Daily Sun editorial stated it best, “Sometimes it takes an outsider to move the needle on the status quo.” In Oravits’ case, it certainly has made a difference for Flagstaff!

“Serving on the Flagstaff City Council has been a great honor and together I know we can continue to get things done for Flagstaff. This is a full time position for me, and over the next four years I will continue to work hard, push for policies that create more jobs, address traffic concerns and housing issues and I will not rest until we get a Veterans Care Home in Flagstaff.” -Councilman Jeff Oravits

There’s still a lot to get done in Flagstaff and the leadership that Oravits has clearly delivered is needed to continue making Flagstaff the greatest small city in the world. The record is clear. Jeff Oravits has been getting things done for Flagstaff and is asking voters to re-elect him to continue the important work he has begun.


Jeff Oravits is a long time Flagstaff resident, small business owner and he and his wife Angela are proud to be raising their three young children in Flagstaff, Arizona.

AZ GOP To Charge Delegates $50 Each To Attend State Convention

Republican Executive Committee members were informed this week that delegates and alternates attending the state convention to elect delegates for the national convention will be charged $50 each to participate this year.

In an email sent out by Tim Sifert, communications director of the The Arizona Republican Party, committee members were informed of the new changes:

“Like all attendees, each Delegate and Alternate attending the state convention must buy a $50 ticket to attend.”

This is the first time elected state delegates have been asked to pay to participate in the selection of national delegates.

Some party members have raised concerns that this change will make it harder for young and low income delegates to be involved in the process when the state convention convenes in April.
