Statement Regarding the Valley Fire School

June 21, 2019

I appreciate all the concerns I have heard regarding the lack of progress with bonding of the Valley Fire School. Nobody is more disappointed than I am in light of the meticulous and aggressive efforts that I have made over the past several months. I want to emphasize that I have been pursuing the Valley Fire School through proper channels to ensure that this project would move forward. I have included a summary of some of the steps I have taken, including submitting the official bond request on February 5th and working with the Department of Administrative Services all spring to get the Valley Fire School’s bid redone, which I accomplished in May of this year. I hope this will properly inform you of my individual efforts and clear up any misinformation you may have.
