Dear Sahuaro District Resident,

I would like to extend an invitation to you or a designated representative from your community to participate on my Sahuaro District Advisory Committee. The focus of the committee will be on Glendale's future outlook and how citizens wish to see the city in the next 40 years.

An important aspect of Glendale's success is its relationship, outreach and service to our community.  This advisory committee will help provide me important guidance and feedback on city and district issues as we continue to advance our mission of excellence and community improvement.

I hope you will accept this invitation to join the Sahuaro District Advisory Committee so we may benefit from your knowledge and insight.  Appointments to the committee are for a one year term and meetings are held three times a year. I plan to have a meeting in early 2017.

Again, thank you in advance for agreeing to play a part in making Glendale a better place to live.  To join, or if you need additional information, please contact Shelli Henson at or 623-930-2814.
