Thanksgiving is my favorite time of year to spend with family and friends, enjoying a feast of turkey along with all of the fixings. It is a time to reflect on what we have accomplished and a time to express our gratitude. We all have so much to be grateful for this year.
I am especially grateful for all of you. The residents of Pima County are among the most resilient, creative and positive people I know. Your commitment to the health and welfare of our community is remarkable and I thank you all for your support and for your confidence in me.
As you can see, there is more than enough money to fix our roads from these existing revenue streams.
More progress is coming, and I believe that our hard work has paid off in terms of shifting the conversation and promoting a new way of thinking about managing the finances of Pima County. It is this progress that gives me confidence we are approaching a new year full of possibilities.
I want to share with you some of the people in our community, and highlights from this year for which I am grateful:
Amazing people doing amazing work: Kevin and Marie Daily
Kevin and Marie Daily, of the Flowing Wells Neighborhood Association & Community Coalition, are just two of the many creative Pima County residents we are grateful to have in our community. Together, they have authored a remarkable book of photos depicting the rich history of the Flowing Wells area.
The Flowing Wells Neighborhood Association & Community Coalition (FWNACC ) will donate all royalties earned from sales of this book to fund scholarships for Flowing Wells students. The book is “dedicated to all Flowing Wells family and friends, past, present, and future, who share a vision of a tight-knit community bigger than any one individual and built on hard work, with the school district at its core.”
