Are Ideas More Important Than Ideologies? That’s the question posed by Art Babbott who is campaigning to represent LD-6 in the Arizona Legislature with the support of Steve Segner, owner of Sedona’s El Portal Hotel. They and the show’s hosts discuss the challenges of running for office as an independent. Babbott says he is an independent candidate by choice claiming that, too often, we choose ideas based on the party of origination rather than the quality of the idea.
Babbott has 15 years of experience in county and local government, having served as a member of Coconino County Board of Supervisors, co-chair of Four Forest Restoration Initiative, the Flagstaff City Council and a large number of other councils, boards and commissions. He is also a small business owner.
