Goddard visits town to talk about crime, other issues

PRESCOTT VALLEY - Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard discussed crime with Mayor Harvey Skoog and other town officials Thursday afternoon at the Civic Center.

Contacted as he was leaving the Prescott Valley Civic Center with two male aides, Goddard said that nothing "newsworthy" came out of the meeting with Skoog and others who attended.

Skoog said, "It was just to discuss crime, drugs, of course, scams, especially against senior citizens."

Skoog said that Town Manager Larry Tarkowski, council members Lora Lee Nye and Harold Wise, Prescott Valley Police Cmdr. P.J. Janik and Police Officer/Crime Prevention Specialist Jennifer Miller also met with Goddard.

Goddard's staff called Victoria Cananea, executive assistant to the town manager, Wednesday afternoon to set up the meeting, Tarkowski said, adding that staff had not posted the meeting.

Goddard made his most recent public appearance May 14 in Prescott Valley when he took part in a statewide program to protect seniors from fraudulent direct mail. The Attorney General's Office maintains an office on Mondays on the first floor of the Civic Center.
