Mayor Jonathan Rothschild delivered his annual State of the City address hosted by the Tucson Metro Chamber at the Tucson Convention Center to a packed audience at this sold out event Friday. The popular Mayor has announced that he will not seek his third four-year term, so this was Mayor Rothschild’s last State of the City speech, entitled “Moving Tucson Forward”.
“I want Tucson to be a city where our children want to stay, and can stay,” said Mayor Rothschild. “Want to stay because of the community and its quality of life. Can stay because there are good jobs here. If I’ve helped get us closer to that goal, then I’ve done my part.”
