Text of Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild’s State of the City speech
From Dylan Smith | TucsonSentinel.com
Good afternoon. Welcome. Thank you for coming.
Thank you to the Tucson Metro Chamber and the Tucson Convention Center for hosting this year’s event—and congratulations, Amber, on becoming the Chamber’s first female CEO. Part of today’s proceeds is being shared with CHRPA, Community Home Repair Projects of Arizona, and Southern Arizona Legal Aid. Please join me in recognizing the Chamber for this donation and CHRPA and SALA for their work.
Cities operate within constraints, never more so than today. Obstacles can be overcome. But first, you need a clear vision—a shared vision—of where you’re at, and where you want to go.
We’ve seen what this can bring over the past few years, working with the business and nonprofit sectors on many initiatives.
