Mayor’s Corner-July Echoes

July 2019

A summertime message from the Mayor

I hope you are all enjoying our great Nogales weather!

With summer here, it is time for BBQ’s, carne asada’s, vacationing with our families and 4th of July parties.  Please join us for the annual 4th of July celebration at Fleischer Park from 4:00 to 11:00 PM.  This includes the official parade, which starts at 10:00 AM at Karam Park to War Memorial Stadium.  

Independence Day is one of the important days in the history of this country.  4th of July is therefore an important day for the residents of the United States as our country gained their independence on this special day.  There is something powerful about millions of people standing together and representing our country in unity.

It has been 6 months now since I’ve been in office and things are moving forward.  From improving streets and roads, addressing the 101 (International Outfall Interceptor) concerns to preparing the 2020 budget because it is imperative that the City remain financially sound for you and your family.  

Events & Happenings:

  1. City Hall had a visit from Mark Kelly who is running as a Democrat for the Senate.  He visited with Council Members and met with city employees for a few hours.
  2. Congressman, Raul Grijalva, visited City Hall on May 30 and met and chatted with the city staff.  He also spoke about the 101 which Rep. Grijalva took Legislative Actions to Fix Nogales International Outfall Interceptor.   For me, as Mayor of Nogales, the Introduction of the Nogales Wastewater Fairness Act is great news for the ratepayers of the City of Nogales.  I would like to thank Senator Sinema and McSally as well as Congressman Grijalva and Kirkpatrick for their support and efforts.  No longer will the residents of Nogales Arizona have to pay for the treatment of Mexican Sewage.”
  3. On Friday, June 14 was the U.S. Army’s Birthday!  This is a special day for the Army, soldiers, veterans and their families to celebrate the day on which the first United States was formed- the Continental Army.  Mayor Garino met with some the staff in front of the Jesus M. Cordova Park and ate lunch with the soldiers, students and families.
  4. The 2020 Census is here!  What is a census and why is it important? Once a decade, America comes together to count every resident in the United States, creating national awareness of the importance of the census and its valuable statistics. The decennial census was first taken in 1790, as mandated by the Constitution. It counts our population and households, providing the basis for reapportioning congressional seats, redistricting, and distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds annually to support states, counties and communities’ vital programs — impacting housing, education, transportation, employment, health care, and public policy.
