Patterson honored again by Arizona cities & towns
STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX -- Rep. Daniel Patterson, D-Tucson (District 29) has been honored with an award for his support of the relationship between local and state governments by the League of Arizona Cities and Towns.
Patterson received a Friend of Cities and Towns Award for the second year in a row at the League’s 2010 Annual Conference Legislative Luncheon.
“Arizona’s cities and towns are the driving force behind our economy, jobs and our state’s future prosperity,” Patterson said. “I support Tucson and local control. We need to work together to get Arizona back on track.”
Patterson has been dedicated to serving cities and towns, having served as a City of Tucson Planning Commissioner and president of Santa Rita Park Neighborhood Association.
"Rep. Patterson received a Friend of the League award in recognition of his support of cities and towns in Arizona,” said Tucson Mayor Bob Walkup, a Republican. “Most of the state's economic activity is generated in our cities and towns. Therefore, what is good for our local communities is good for the state. I am pleased to have Rep. Patterson representing this region."
The League of Arizona Cities and Towns represents the 90 incorporated cities and towns in Arizona at the state legislature.
