I want to thank Councilman Fimbres and his staff at Ward Five.
Without their powerful help it would be hard if not impossible for our
neighborhood leaders and volunteers to be heard and to get the contacts
that we need to get the job done.
We want so hard to be proud of our neighborhoods here in Tucson.
And I see that many neighborhoods are getting together to have a larger
voice to the city council with the help of our wards like Ward Five.
