Councilmember Fimbres statement about the Orlando Shootings

I want to take this moment to express my feelings on the tragedy in Orlando.


This was a despicable act of hate on people who are a part of our nation and our family.


It does not matter who you love as long as you love somebody.


Black, Latino, LGBT and those who believe in God have been targets by those who hate.


We must work to make our society better and to change those laws that brought us Orlando, Sandy Hook, the Denver movie theater, San Bernadino and the Tucson tragedies.





TUCSON - Based on several incidents at Santa Rita Park and after several meetings with the Neighborhood Associations, Tucson Police and the Tucson Parks and Recreation Department, a new effort for enforcement and assistance was launched at Santa Rita Park.


Under the direction of Tucson Police Chief Chris Magnus, Assistant Chief Ramon Batista, and Operations Division West Captain Eric Kazmierczak, increased walking patrols, bicycle patrols and additional car patrols will be in the Santa Rita Park area.
