It was called speed dating for candidates.Rio Robson, a candidate for Sedona City Council, left, sits at a table with members of the League of Women Voters to discuss what he plans to bring to the Sedona City Council. The members asked questions of the seven candidates who attended.

On Wednesday, July 23, the League of Women Voters hosted a candidates forum for those seeking seats on the Sedona City Council but with a bit of a twist. Each candidate was given two minutes to introduce themselves. The audience was then split up into seven tables with each candidate sitting at one and answering questions for eight minutes. This continued until each candidate spoke to each table.

Like many of the candidates, Tom Lamkin was asked about his ideas on dealing with traffic in and around Sedona. He suggested a parking garage in Uptown or maybe a small in-town transit system and then expand it citywide.

“We need leaders who are willing to take action when it comes to traffic,” he said. “We need to ask ourselves what can be done. I feel we need to find experts who can solve this issue and bring them in because we need to have the guts to get it done. Small steps lead to bigger steps.”

When it comes to traffic, Scott Jablow said the answer is not a simple one since Sedona is landlocked.
