Paul's Note - October 9, 2020

Oftentimes, if someone wants to build something new, they will need to go through the rezoning process. This requires meetings with residents in the area, the oversight of our Planning and Development Services Department and a vote of Mayor and Council. Most rezonings that come before the council are non-controversial. However, there can be concerns about impact on the area such as traffic, noise and protection of our environment expressed by people in the area.

Paul's Note - October 2nd, 2020

Assistant Fire Chief Laura Baker retired this week after 26 years of serving our community. I’d like to extend my appreciation and best wishes on behalf of all of our Ward 2 neighbors.

Chief Baker was Tucson’s first woman fire chief. She also worked hard to get other women into the firefighting profession, including starting Camp Fury back in 2009. Camp Fury is a project with the Girl Scouts to introduce girls to firefighting. It is now a nationwide program.

Thank you, and good luck in what ever you do next, Chief.

Earlier this week, outgoing County Attorney Barbara LaWall elected not to prosecute the three officers involved in the death of Carlos Ingram-López. Neither I, my colleagues nor Chief Christopher Magnus have any authority to tell the County Attorney’s office what to do in this case. It is worth noting that all three officers left the Tucson Police Department shortly after this case came to light.
