LORI HUNT, TOWN OF PRESCOTT VALLEY COUNCILWOMAN, Lori was fortunate to be appointed to the Prescott Valley Town Council in September 2019 filling the seat vacated by our 5th District Supervisor Mary Mallory. Lori’s core values are Optimism, Commitment, Integrity, Family and Spirituality!
Lori Hunt is proud to be from the Midwest, born and raised Republican in Indiana. She graduated from Indiana State University with a double major in Economics and Urban Regional Planning Studies.
Loving PV, her new hometown, Lori quickly got involved. She is thrilled to be a member of the Prescott Valley Chamber of Commerce and a board member of the Humboldt Education Foundation. Dene and Lori are partners at Heights Church and anxiously await the opening of the Prescott Valley campus. Lori served on the Prescott Valley Parks and Recreation Commission.
Lori has an extensive background in City and County government, with 30 years of experience. Most recently she was the Community Manager at Laguna Woods Village, a 55-plus community in Orange County.
She brings to Council experience in Economic Development, Community Development and Planning. Lori has facilitated strategic planning sessions for public jurisdictions and nonprofits; and is very much a consensus builder. She understands the responsibilities of Council, the duties of Town Staff and is very familiar with the Council/Manager form of Government and is appreciative that local government is a nonpartisan position, which is the only way to get things done!
Join Lori in creating Excitement about her three E priorities:
Enrichment, meaning general plan compliance, water sustainability, partnership with the YMCA, maintained streets and a regional park. Education through communication to include, but not be limited to, providing for our future generation, investing in our residents (the stakeholders of Prescott Valley), and professional development. Economic Development, increasing revenue (specifically sales tax revenue) and attracting new businesses that create jobs. Prescott Valley does not receive any property tax, and I don’t ever want to implement one, so growing retail business is very important to the Town’s future.

Kim Owens After many years of serving in elected offices in my community and within the GOP, I would like to now use my experience to see that, as our Arizona Constitution requires, regulation at the Arizona Corporation Commission is “just” and “reasonable”. The ACC is vitally important in the effort to push back against the energy policies of the left, such as “The Green New Deal”, which would transform our economy and very way of life. In 2018 out-of-state interests spent millions of dollars to influence the Arizona elections, encouraging changes to our lifestyle and threatening to damage our economy through Prop 127. Arizona voters defeated that effort and sent a message - DON'T CALIFORNIA MY ARIZONA! But, did you know those same radical policies can still be passed as regulations at the ACC? They can – but not on my watch! We must protect the interests of rural Arizona in water and power regulation. Many parts of the state are treated with a double standard when it comes to regulations on water and power. Small rural water companies and their users should not suffer because they don’t have the lawyers and paid staff of the large corporations; any discussion of power regulation or policy changes must take into account all of Arizona, not just the areas served by the large power companies.
The ACC has a need for strength and vision from those who occupy the office that is committed, without wavering, to the purpose and a vision outlined in the Arizona Constitution, with a focus on the public good. As a Commissioner I will not be timid in my opposition to dangerous policy efforts, will ask the tough questions and demand serious, honest answers - while serving all of Arizona, rural and urban, large and small communities, with the same level of integrity and interest and respect the rights of consumers and business alike, no matter their size or influence.
