Paul's Note - January 15th, 2021

Six hundred and two residents of Pima County died of COVID-19 last week. I’d like to tell you about two of them. 

One was Michael Hicks. We were on opposite sides of most issues, but I know he cared a lot about the community. He was a traffic engineer with the city for years and my staff got to work with him when dealing with neighborhood issues.
