The Nov. 9 State of the City Address provides a unique opportunity for the public to hear from new Tempe Mayor Mark Mitchell during what will be his first appearance at the annual event.
“The annual State of the City is an opportunity for us to let residents and business leaders know what the city is doing to maintain our quality of life and build Tempe into the strong regional partner that we know a prosperous future requires,” said Mitchell. “This is an excellent opportunity for us to evaluate where we’ve been and get the community involved in where we’re going.”
Members of the community have always been treated to an informative and compelling presentation by the mayor at this event. This year, Mitchell will be sharing his thoughts on the local social and economic climate along with his vision for the growth and future of Tempe and Arizona.
This event provides a valuable opportunity to enjoy a breakfast with civic, business and political leaders of the Valley. The event takes place Friday, Nov. 9, from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. at the Tempe Mission Palms, 60 E. 5th St. in Tempe. The public is invited to attend.
