Sharlot Hall Budget cuts


Ted Scott

Recommended Posts

As many of you know, Sharlot Hall Museum in Prescott is a vital resource for placer gold research. The museum archives hold unique and irreplaceable clues in the search for gold and study of mining history which leads to finds.

Arizona's Sharlot Hall Museum is a Prescott landmark and a vital revenue generator for the region. However, recent State budget cuts threaten the Museums viability -- and we need your help to make sure that we can continue to serve the community. --- The State has cut the Museums budget by nearly $100,000 already this year, and has indicated additional cuts -- totaling about a quarter of a million dollars -- for next fiscal year. --- Although were already significantly understaffed, well be forced to reduce payroll further. --- These cuts will result in fewer educational programs, reduced hours, and diminished services. All this adds up to a net loss for our community -- a community that depends heavily on tourism funds generated by organizations such as ours. --- To remain a meaningful cultural attraction and to contribute to the regions economy, Sharlot Hall Museum needs State funding restored. --- Please, PLEASE contact Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and State legislators with this vital message -- Restore funding for Sharlot Hall Museum. Thank you.
