Mayor’s Corner-August Echoes

Did you know that being counted brings over $16 billion a year to our City and State?  The goal of the census is to count everyone once, only once, and in the right place. The Census provides a SNAPSHOT of our country, state, local areas, and on a broad level defines who we are as a nation.  Did you know that the Census is required by the Constitution, which has called for an “actual enumeration” once a decade since 1790? For our community, the census is important to adequately plan growth, deliver services and solve the counties problems.

Please call our office, 520.287.6571 or email my Administrative Assistant at lmontiel@nogalesaz.us of you have any questions/concerns. www.census.gov

1.    4th of July Event:

Our August weather is already high in the 90 degree plus temperatures. The summer activities are kicking in now, starting with July 4th and the Fireworks!   The 4th of July event (Happy Birthday, America!) was a great success!  The activities started with the parade downtown Morley. This year’s Grand Marshal was Rosanna Gabaldon, Arizona State House of Representatives Legislative District 2.  I personally want to thank Representative Rosanna Gabaldon for dedicating her time to the community of Nogales. A big thank you to the many participants including the fire & police department, the different clubs, businesses, vendor’s and to the many people who came out to watch the parade and join in the evening event at Fleischer Park. The fireworks exhibition was awesome!  Without the generous support from all the participants like these, our celebration would have not been a total success.  

2.   City Hall Happenings:

At City Hall the Council, Managers, and Directors are working together to build a better and more productive public sector.   Our budget is balanced, our streets and parks are improving on a daily basis and our focus continues on economic development. We are collaborating with the private and public sectors to create more effective government.    

3.   Arizona-Mexico Commission: 

On June 26 through June 28, Mayor, Council and City Managers, attended the Arizona-Mexico Commission in Phoenix.  The purpose of this important conference is to work to improve the well-being & quality of life of AZ residents by maintaining a strong, cooperative relationship with Mexico.  Top level business leaders and policy makers from Arizona and Mexico gathered under the leadership of Arizona Governor Doug Ducey and Sonora Governor Claudia Pavlovich to promote a strong, cooperative binational relationship.

Mayor Garino was invited to exclusively speak and present on Tourism specifically on policy development and provide an exchange of ideas and information.   

4.   U.S. Consul General de Nogales 4th of July Pre-Activity:

Consul General from the United States of America, Virginia Staab, invited the Mayor, Council & Staff to a Pre-4th of July event in Sonora, Mexico on Tuesday, July 2 at the American Embassy. 

We sincerely want to thank, Consul Virginia Staab and her entire staff for a beautiful event; the embassy was transformed into a scene out of her native San Francisco including the Trolley.
