Grant Quezada Withdraws from Council Race Featured

Grant Quezada has decided to step aside from the race for City Council. 

Big Idea


  • On August 3, a primary election was held in the City of Prescott for three open seats on Council
  • Two candidates had the required 50%+1 ballots, Brandon Montoya and Eric Moore
  • That meant a runoff between the next two highest vote-getters, Jessica Hall and Grant Quezada
  • Now, with Grant dropping out, Jessica Hall will be the only candidate on the ballot

Grant Quezada drops out of the Council race

Grant Quezada sent CopperState News the following statement: 

Over the last couple of weeks, I have had the time to slow down, process, and approach my position and the value that I can bring to our community.  I consider myself very blessed to have a phenomenal group of men and women in my life to decide the best choice moving forward.  After much consideration, I will be withdrawing from the race for Prescott City Council and supporting Mrs. Hall as she steps into a position of service to our community like the others before her.  I believe Jessica has the experience needed to serve in a greater capacity;  she is well rounded and will bring a lot of clarity and experience to Prescott City Council moving forward.

My overall message to our community has always been one that encourages all of us to remind ourselves why we have chosen to live here and to move forward and grow together without losing sight of who we are as Prescottonians.  Growth, Water, Traffic have always been issues at the heart of Prescott and the answers for all of those are right in front of us by working together.  I look forward to supporting the direction forward and I will always be a voice of encouragement, optimism, and unity for Prescott and the Region.

Thank you to my amazing wife and awesome children, and to all my friends and family out there for your support and dedication. 

Grant Quezada

Now what? 

According to the City of Prescott Clerk Sarah Siep, this results in Jessica Hall being the only person on the ballot in November.

So, assuming that nothing else happens in this crazy election year, the next Council will be: 

  • Mayor Phil Goode
  • Steve Sischka 
  • Cathey Rusing
  • Clark Tenney
  • Brandon Montoya 
  • Eric Moore
  • Jessica Hall 

The next Prescott election for Council and Mayor will be in 2023. Rusing, Sischka and Tenney will all be up for re-election. The Mayor's position is a 2-year term, so Goode will also be up for re-election.
