Meet the Council Finalists: Jim Lamerson Featured

Meet Jim Lamerson


Big Idea:

  • Jim Lamerson has served on the Prescott City Council for 16 years
  • He has historical knowledge and experience in the key topic areas for the City
  • Lamerson owns his business and has resided in Prescott for 29 years
  • He has been involved in the community in many different ways throughout the years
  •


Five Finalists, including Jim Lamerson, are vying for the Council seat vacated by Councilwoman Billie Orr.


We will be providing you with the information from the candidate applications - one per day for the rest of the week. 


Although asked, none of the finalists have been convicted or under indictment of any felonies or class 1 misdemeanor offenses, so we did not include their answers on that section. If they added a resumé or note at the end, we have included that, too. 


The finalists will be interviewed publicly in a special Council meeting on February 16.
