December 2022 Recap

Updated: Jan 11, 2023

This Month Around Town and Fort Huachuca:

Another busy month to round our the year and my first term on City Council. I attended the Retirement of Jeff Jennings, the Greater Huachuca Area Democratic Club Meeting to honor Dorothy Tompkins, the Chamber's Christmas Light Parade, the 2nd HIP-R2C, the General's Holiday Reception, and participated in Las Posadas for the first time, among other events.

The Sierra Vista Herald/Review hosted two hometown heroes who happened to both be a part of this year’s World Series. Darick Hall and Seth Martinez were in town last weekend to talk about their experiences and to meet with fans here in SV.

I love how Darick Hall stressed the point that "You don't do it yourself." when answering a question about his success.

Big thanks to the Herald/Review and SSVEC for making this happen.
