What the Thunderbirds are to the Waste Management Phoenix Open the Charros are to Scottsdale spring training.
They put on great events and raise ridiculous sums of money for local charities. They are civic service at their best.
That’s why we were pleased to read this story recently in the Scottsdale Independent about Dennis Robbins becoming the new executive director of the Charros.
If there were ever a person to match the organization’s benevolence it would be the former Scottsdale City Councilman. Look up “good guy” and there you will find Robbins’ picture. Scottsdale may have lost a councilman when he was surprisingly defeated in the 2014 elections but it just gained a lot more.
In fact, we can’t think of a better fit, unless it’s baseball and beer, something Robbins will help oversee now at Scottsdale Stadium every March.
