May 2018 Interfaith Breakfast

Yesterday I joined community interfaith leaders, non-profit organizations, city staff and members of the Peoria City Council as we celebrated the City of Surprise’s designation as a Golden Rule Community.  The 2018 Community Resource Guide, a partnership with the city of Peoria, featuring social services and programs designed to assist Northwest Valley residents in need, was introduced and distributed at the event. We should all feel so fortunate as to have wonderful community leaders here in Surprise and in our neighboring cities.

Jim Hayden Firecracker Award

I recently had the honor of presenting the Jim Hayden Firecracker Award to a few deserving individuals. Recipients of the award were young fire academy graduates who have gone above and beyond the call of duty. A few of the honorees were former students of Jim! It is such an honor for me to keep his legacy alive through these individuals. Congratulations to all of the award winners!
