Even though we cut short our petition gathering because of public health concerns, we were able to file almost double the required number of signatures on our nominating petitions.
Thank you to everyone that signed or circulated.
This is a sad day for everyone in Pima County – especially Richard’s wife Emily, his daughter Luz, and his many family and friends. I knew Richard long before he joined the Board and he was someone who I was proud to call a friend. Richard always fought for what he believed in and was a colleague who I could always count on. Most of the time, Richard and I agreed. On the occasion when we disagreed, he was always respectful and open to finding a compromise. For that and for his friendship, I will never forget him.
