Let Your Voice Be Heard

Today I met with the Police Chief and the Marana Police Citizens Advisory Commission with hopes that I could get onto the commission as an alternate. I gave them my top 10 list. I was nervous to see the other 2 applicants, but neither of them showed up for the meeting.

I opted to sit in as they discussed me. Every member of the commission was in favor of adding me to their team! Yeah! The head of the commission commented how they had been able to already see me in action for good with the unattended child in vehicle ordinance. Councilman Clanagan was there as well and basically endorsed me as someone who would bring the perspective of a generation that is hard to reach.

So, what happens next? Next month, the town council will have the opportunity to vote on my appointment as an alternate to the commission. I'll keep you all posted!

Let me know if you have any concerns about our community that you would like to see addressed by the police citizens advisory commission. They just announced another alternate position is available with the resignation of one commission member. You can apply on the Marana town website if you are interested.

You'll do great! I don't have any specific concerns but (as is every other mother) I am very interested in how the schools around here are doing and in any ways to improve them.
