PRESCOTT, AZ—Tom Chabin and William Mundell, both former members of the Arizona legislature, will speak at the Democratic Women of the Prescott Area luncheon at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, April 27 in a joint appearance at the Antelope Hills Golf Course's Centennial Center, 1989 Clubhouse Drive, Prescott. The buffet luncheon is open to the public and costs $15 for members; $17 for non-members.
Chabin and Mundell said they share the same philosophy—that members of the ACC should be free of ethical conflicts and should be advocates of the public good, instead of favoring corporations in decision making. In campaign materials, they say the ACC has “broken its trust with voters and the consumers it is supposed to be protecting.”

He previously served two terms on the Coconino County Board of Supervisors, seven years on the Coconino County Planning and Zoning Commission and three years on the Tuba City Public School Board.
