To all in the Vail Valley, I wish you a very Happy New Year. As we embark on this journey together, I want to thank you for electing me to serve as your District 4 Supervisor. I am honored, humbled, and ready to get to work.

2017 has the potential to be a breakout year, as we acknowledge and say “thank you” to out-going District 4 Supervisor Ray Carroll after 20 years of service to Pima County. We appreciate his generosity and graciousness in helping to make our transition a smooth one.

Our first order of business is to assemble a team that will help me address the concerns of residents, as well as aid me in the important policy-making role of my office. For some time, there has been a representative from the District 4 Supervisor’s office in Green Valley serving area residents. I believe it’s time for Vail to have one also. A satellite office will be established soon for the to-be-named community liaison. I will be updating you when we roll out this plan.

As we get to work, my priorities are clear:

Repair our roads in a timely and cost-efficient manner.

Encourage rational economic development to bring jobs.

Support the existing business community.

Together, I know we can tackle these challenges and improve the quality of life for families in this beautiful region. My goal is to be the best supervisor to ever serve District 4, and all of the residents of Pima County.

Let’s go.
