Kathy Hoffman will not be able to make our meeting after all, but the good news is that our LD10 delegation, Sen. Kirsten Engel, Rep. Domingo DeGrazia & Rep. Stephanie Stahl Hamilton, have stepped up and agreed to give us a wrap-up of the legislative session. Tucson Mayor Regina Romero will also discuss positive changes since she has taken office and her concerns for what lies ahead.
Regina Romero is the first Latina woman to be elected to the Ward 1 City Council and, subsequently, the first Latina woman to be elected Tucson Mayor. She is the only Latina Mayor in the 50 largest U.S. cities.
Raised by immigrant farm-workers in Somerton, Arizona, Regina is the youngest of six children and is the first member of her family to vote and the first to graduate from college with an undergraduate degree from The University of Arizona and a post-graduate certificate from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government.
Regina helped lift Tucson out of the Great Recession and spurred the creation of high-wage, long-term jobs. She advocated for bold action on climate change, affordable housing, infrastructure investment, immigrant and workers’ rights, and access to a high-quality education.
