President & CEO
Mayor Weiers as One of the Nine Arizona Mayors
to Join 300 Cities in Requesting $250 billion
in Federal Aid
"Nine Arizona mayors have signed onto  a letter  requesting Congress channel $250 billion in direct emergency aid to cities nationwide to combat coronavirus, arguing cities will experience significant declines in revenue and have to cut services and employees if they don't get federal help.

The March 20 letter, organized through the U.S. Conference of Mayors, was signed by 303 mayors from 48 states and Washington, D.C. It was addressed to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate leaders Mitch McConnell and Charles Schumer and House leader Kevin McCarthy."

Your Response Matters!
"Health clinics. Fire departments. Schools. Even roads and highways. The census can shape many different aspects of your community.

Census results help determine how billions of dollars in federal funding flow into states and communities each year."

It has never been easier to complete the census on your own - whether online at  www.2020census.gov , by phone, or by mail - all without having to meet a census taker.
