Quality of life.
Vice Mayor Edward Farrell said it’s the one issue that’s remained constant for every city council since Maricopa’s incorporation in October 2003.
“A quality of life is something where you bring public safety, health care, education, higher education, transportation accessibility, infrastructure and recreation,” he said. “All of those were priorities for the councils since Day One.”
Dressed in a black suit and pink tie, Farrell was talking to a room full of city and county leaders, state lawmakers, former council members and other guests Tuesday night inside the municipality’s new City Hall. Farrell stood at a podium positioned near a raised platform and long, white curved table bearing his name and those of current council members.
The name of the room in which Farrell spoke was displayed in bold, black letters above the glass door entrance: “Council Chambers.”
