September 14 Proclaimed Support Latino Business Day In Glendale Our goal is to make every day in Glendale a “Support Business Day”
Mayor Weiers presented the proclamation to members of the Arellano family, Jose, Irma, Nick, and Armando, owners of La Purisima Bakery.
On Tuesday, September 12, during a meeting of the Glendale City Council, we proclaimed September 14 Support Latino Business Day. I was honored to present the proclamation to members of the Arellano family, owners of La Purisima Bakery. For over 40 years, La Purisima Bakery’s dedicated owners and staff have been providing provisions to the Glendale community. In 2022, the readers of the Phoenix New Times named La Purisima Bakery the “Best Mexican Bakery.” I encouraged all residents to shop at Latino-owned businesses on September 14, 2023, and beyond. The Arellano family has operated their beloved business in Glendale and have served this community through their hard work, dedication, and of course, delicious Mexican pastries for over four decades. With that in mind, it was an honor to proclaim September 14, 2023, Support Latino Business Day in the City of Glendale. Across our community, despite difficult economic times on a national level, families are growing their small business as our community grows. This is due in large part to our implementation of smart fiscal policy and a commitment to a business-friendly environment in which small-family-owned businesses can thrive. Our goal has been to make every day in Glendale a “Support Business Day.”

What Is A Bond
In an effort to improve streets and safety, the Glendale City Council has approved a bond election to be held this November. These bonds are a fiscally responsible way to fund key projects that would help improve public safety, keep response times low, make safer intersections, and reduce congestion. This will be an all-mail election. All residents registered to vote will be mailed a ballot starting October 11, 2023. The deadline to register to vote is October 10, 2023. Learn more.
