“I am running for re-election to build on the tremendous progress we have made, and to continue the work to create a more economically vibrant, affordable, safer, and sustainable city where all Tucsonans can thrive. Despite the curveball the pandemic threw at our community, I am incredibly proud of the progress we have made in my first term. We have made historic investments in affordable housing, community safety, transportation, and mobility infrastructure, climate action, and environmental sustainability. We have set in motion long-term, transformative plans, and strategic investments to lay the foundation for a stronger, more equitable city that will uplift future generations of Tucsonans.”

“Tucson now has a louder voice at the local, state, and national level than we have ever had. And we are reaping the rewards of this strengthened position. During my first term, I have secured more than $80 million dollars in grant funding from the state and federal governments for a wide range of projects.”

“We need experienced leadership, evidence-based policies, and innovative solutions to tackle our most pressing challenges. It has been the honor of my life to be entrusted by Tucsonans to serve as Mayor of our beautiful city. I am asking Tucson’s voters for their support in re-electing me to be their Mayor.”
