Coral Evans is the Mayor of Flagstaff, and the Executive Director of the Sunnyside Neighborhood Association. She grew up in Flagstaff with her twin brother and her mom. Her mom was a school teacher until injury forced her to go on disability. Growing up Coral benefited from public programs and community support that sent her to summer camps and allowed her to play ice hockey. She got her first job at 13.
In 2008 Coral was working as a community organizer when the city council was debating selling the historic Dunbar Elementary school in Southside. Dunbar had been the segregated elementary school in Flagstaff until it desegregated two years before Brown v Board of Ed. The Southside community objected to the sale and expressed desire to turn it into a community center. Coral organized the community to save the historic building. After months of lobbying and marching and organizing the city council still wasn’t listening to the community. It was at that point Coral asked a mentor, Joe, who city council worked for, she was going to talk to their boss. The next day Joe brought her papers to run for office. That was 12 years ago, she’s been serving the community and championing the people as an elected official ever since.
Delina DiSanto is a Democratic candidate for Arizona's 4th Congressional district.
Her political mentor for many years, Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell, a Republican, taught her the value of working on both sides of the aisle, coming up with sensible compromises and looking at legislation through the eyes of a constituent.
Born in Long Branch, New Jersey, Delina was raised on democratic values by her strong, independent mother, and Irish immigrant grandmother. Delina adopted values of meaningful relationships, honesty, earned trust, accountability and a strong work ethic from the strong women in her household.
Delina is a business woman, having owned and operated a business with her husband. In addition, she worked as a Finance Director in several hospitals. She is also a Registered Nurse, graduating from ASU Cum Laude. She is a strong leader and knows how to work well with others with her magnetic personality and contagious smile. She understands compromise, while never compromising on her values. She isn't a politician; Delina is a warm-hearted constituent of AZ-04 who wants to listen and have our district be heard.
Delina resides in a small community north of Cave Creek with her husband, Dave, her dog, Archie, and her cat, Simba. She and Dave are "empty nesters" and have two children, David and Dakota, who also reside in Arizona.
Madison Lisle is a student at Prescott College, where she has learned the importance of community organizing. She currently organizes with Keep Prescott Together and Yavapai County Community Action Network because she firmly believes in the growing immigration justice movement in Northern Arizona.
