TAKING CARE OF PIMA COUNTY
CARING FOR OUR COMMUNITY
A Message From Your County Supervisor
I don’t have to remind or point out to you in any great detail what all of you already know. These are frightening, troubling, and difficult times for all of us in District 4 and Pima County. Terribly unpleasant, unfortunate, and in many cases, devastating occurrences have been unfolding on many different levels, on many different fronts at breakneck speed. What is perhaps the most unsettling factor we have to deal with is the nauseating feeling of great uncertainty that hangs over us like a dark cloud.
As a former long-time business owner, I do have experience with uncertainty. Uncertainty in business can lead to insolvency in business. So if you’re a business owner, an employee or a consumer in District 4, it’s imperative that we all keep our heads and wits about us, along with a sense of balance and perspective. We must remember the foundational positive attributes for which our area is historically famous.
First, our region has always been and will always be a caring, loving, and all-embracing community.
Second, from our regional organizations which range from business and civic groups to school district support associations and our not-for-profits throughout Green Valley/Sahuarita, Vail/Corona de Tucson, East Tucson, the Tanque Verde Valley, and Mt. Lemmon, as well as the Sheriff’s Auxiliary Volunteers, our region is poised to offer help and action in these times of need.
Third, our many churches and numerous social safety-net entities are here to provide support and assistance at all times.
Finally, each region’s own HOAs, villages, and neighborhoods are filled with loving and kind folks, renowned for always lending a hand, eagerly providing a laugh or shared tear, a heartfelt talk, and a shoulder to cry or lean on.
That is what community is all about, and that is what District 4 is all about.
All of us have been through tough times, both personal and professional, and as a society. We will weather these tough times, too – together.
None of us is alone – ever. That’s what makes us District 4 and Pima County.
And, oh yes, I love being your Supervisor.
