Larry Rains has early mornings and busy days with lots of meetings and community events as Casa Grande City Manager.
Rains has been Casa Grande’s City Manager since 2016. He previously was deputy city manager for the Pinal County city. We caught up with Rains who outlined one of his days earlier this week. That includes getting ready for the 2019 NFL season and rooting on the Dallas Cowboys.
