Paul's Note - August 14, 2020

We’ve been doing COVID-19 testing at Udall Park for the last week or so. It’s relatively easy to sign up and get the testing done. I know this because I made an appointment and got tested earlier this week.

It takes five minutes to sign up. All you need to do is go to www.pima.gov/covid19testing and click on the Schedule My Test link for Udall, or call 800-369-3584 to schedule an appointment. The test itself was easy too, and there was nearly no waiting.

The City’s Housing and Community Development (HCD) department has partnered with several agencies to administer this program including Primavera, Interfaith Community Services, Catholic Community Services, and International Rescue Committee.

Paul's Note - August 7th, 2020

While I’m aware that there are varied thoughts on what role our police department plays in the community, recently, a local news report regarding officer attrition in the Tucson Police Department left the wrong impression. The response from Chief Chris Magnus, sent to council offices earlier this week, is below. I want to reiterate that I am committed to bringing in more academy classes and expanding our community service officer program.
