Guest Editorial: ICYMI A Year in Review: Looking Back at 2023

By Supervisor Thomas Galvin

Hello Neighbors,

Happy New Year! As we step into this promising year, I am filled with gratitude and pride for the remarkable progress we achieved together in Maricopa County. Serving as your County Supervisor in District 2 has been an incredible honor, and I’m enthusiastic about the opportunities to continue building a brighter future for all.

I’m excited to recap the many success and milestones of 2023:

– Successfully passing a fiscally conservative budget that cut property tax rates
– Implementing a 2.6% reduction in the overall budget
– Securing a permanent water source for the Rio Verde Foothills
– Prohibiting TikTok usage on ALL County government devices
– Allocating additional funding to support our law enforcement
– Increasing funding for housing opportunities for elderly and disabled residents
– Condemning the rising tide of anti-Semitism

These accomplishments are the result of our collaborative efforts, and they will undoubtedly have a lasting impact on the residents of District 2 and Maricopa County as a whole.

I want to express my sincere appreciation for your continued support, engagement, and dedication to making Maricopa County a better place for all. Together, we will build on our successes and create a community we can all be proud to call home.

It remains an honor and a privilege to serve you on the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, and I am excited about the possibilities that lie ahead in the coming year.

Wishing you and your loved ones a joyous start to the New Year, filled with prosperity, happiness, and continued success.
