TUCSON - Tucson Ward 5 Councilmember applauds Arizona District 2 Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick, who lead a successful effort to get 10,000 disaster blankets for our most needy, vulnerable and homeless population in Tucson and Pima County,
I fully support the Mayor’s call for an evening curfew to help slow the rampant spread of Covid-19 across our community. I also understand that there is a balancing act between public health and the economic wellbeing of our small businesses and the people they employ.
We addressed the Mayor's call at an emergency meeting Tuesday to address the record number of COVID cases along with near capacity hospital beds.

One of our great Ward 2 faith leaders, Rev. Owen Chandler, will be resigning his post at Saguaro Christian Church at the beginning of next year.
The reason for his leaving the post fit in with what I know about his sense of duty. He’s a US Army reservist and has deployed in the past. He is now being asked to switch from the reserve component to the active component.
Ward 5 Councilmember Richard Fimbres and his staff, hope you have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.

Also, Councilmember Fimbres reminds everyone to please don't drink and drive.
