A Message From Supervisor Bill Gates

Dear Friends,

Last week Arizona lost its favorite adopted son, Senator John S. McCain III.  There have been many fitting tributes to the Senator since his passing, some of which I was fortunate enough to attend. It is clear through these tributes that the late Senator's leadership, character, and love for America will last long after his passing. 

Below you will find one of my fondest memories with John McCain, sending our beloved Cardinals off to play the Carolina Panthers in the playoffs. There you will also find a short video tribute from my colleagues and me.

Fair winds and flowing seas, Senator.
