A full house at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on Thursday, July 31, listened to candidates for Sedona Mayor and City Council talk about their knowledge, values and vision in regard to the arts.Candidates for Sedona Mayor and City Council assemble at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre for a forum on the future of the arts in the community. Each candidate had his or her own ideas, but all agreed art was important to the city.

As an icebreaker, they were asked about their personal or professional experience with any art discipline or institution. Among the not-unexpected responses were piano lessons as a child, amateur photography, playing violin in the junior orchestra and taking a film class in the hopes of becoming the next Spielberg.

However, City Council candidate Scott Jablow, a former police detective, offered his take: “I spraypainted around evidence and bodies.”

Thus, the tone was set for the latest in the series of candidate forums as the Tuesday, Aug. 26, primary election nears.

The discussion — which moderater Richard Fox introduced as “not in any manner a debate” — was generally collegial and entirely supportive of the arts in Sedona.

It even closed with a performance, as City Council candidate Jon Thompson read his poem, “Kissing Rocks, Sedona.”

The event moved along briskly, finishing ahead of its two-hour time limit.
