Fall Update

Honoring Officer Gene Lee


Maricopa County grieves along with the family of Officer Gene Lee and with all of the men and women in our jails who protect and serve our community.  As we mourn a life lost in the line of duty we share our deepest gratitude for the job our detention officers do every day.  Rest in Peace, Officer Lee.

Domestic Violence Awareness Month



The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors issued a proclamation recognizing October as Domestic Violence Month.  Maricopa County has partnered with the City of Phoenix, the State of Arizona, and local community organizations to continue to raise awareness about domestic violence. For resources and more information, please visit the Arizona Coalition to End Sexual and Domestic Violence website or call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233).

It is always an honor to be invited to the East Valley Partnership to speak with local leaders dedicated to economic development, education and public safety in the East Valley.

Gilbert Chamber of Commerce

I enjoyed speaking at the Gilbert Chamber of Commerce Good Government Series along with Supervisor Jack Sellers.

Fraesfield Trailhead Opening Celebration



In October, I spoke at the Fraesfield Trailhead Opening celebration (located north of 134th and Rio Verde) along with Councilwoman Littefield. I appreciate the long-standing relationship with the City and County, and the multitude of volunteers to make sure we have a seamless connection between the Preserve, McDowell Mountain Regional Park and Maricopa Trail.

McDowell Mountain Regional Park

McDowell Mountain Regional Park is getting national recognition! The park was named one of the "Best for Outdoor Enthusiasts" in the TripSavvy Editors' Choice Awards. More than 60,000 businesses were reviewed and only 620 made the cut with McDowell Mountain Regional Park being one of them. This award is just another reminder of all this park has to offer, from camping, hiking, or mountain biking. With more than 40 miles of trails and 76 individual sites for tent or RV camping, now is the time to visit. You can take advantage of our buy one, get one camping night free promotion through November 10, 2019 by calling (602) 506-2930 ext.1. 

Paz de Cristo

Visiting and touring Paz de Cristo in Mesa was informative and worthwhile. They do truly amazing the work serving homeless individuals, not only providing more than 50,000 meals each month, but also assistance toward self-sufficiency. If you are interested in volunteering or helping their mission, please visit their website.

Healthy Giving Campaign

Healthy Giving PSA


As the holidays approach, I wanted to ask you to support our "Healthy Giving Campaign"  which focuses on sustainable, long-term solutions to end homelessness. The video above includes interviews with two people who were able to turn their lives around and end their homelessness, not through donations on the street, but through the connections provided by caring community organizations who taught them the skills to change. Learn more about the campaign and ways to get involved here.

Travel ID Information

Driver License


Every Arizonan needs to know that beginning October 1, 2020, driver licenses and ID cards without a gold star in the upper right corner will no longer be accepted as identification at airports. If Arizonans don't have a passport or other federal ID -- or they prefer to use their driver license as ID for domestic travel -- they need to plan to get a Travel ID now. For more information visit www.AZTravelID.com
