November/December 2009 - Joe Pizzillo, Councilmember

I'm proud and honored to be your newest Councilmember, and I'd like to thank you, the residents of Goodyear for supporting your City government in these challenging times. As a government of the people, by the people and for the people, it's been a difficult year for us all. We've had to make sacrifices, but the goal is to maintain a solid financial position and emerge stronger as the economy comes back. You can be confident that a high priority has been placed on monetary thrift and igniting our city's economic engine to attract development and create quality jobs.

This holiday season will be tough for many families because of the economic conditions, but as a community, we can help make a difference through a couple of programs: Fill-A-Need and Shop with a Cop. Together, City employees who volunteer their time, citizens like you, and our local business partners, can help families in need by donating toys, nonperishable food, new clothes for children and adults, personal care items and household items.

There is great need for things as basic as toothbrushes, shampoo and other hair care products, bath towels, cooking utensils, macaroni and cheese, and diapers. Action figures, Barbie dolls, video games and DVDs are always big hits with the kids. Cash donations are encouraged, because our volunteers can stretch those dollars with discounts and bulk purchases through some of our local retailers for food and special-request items. Your gifts and donations have a special importance during this holiday season.

Coming together to help those in need creates in everyone a sense of hope and optimism. We believe things will get better and are reminded to be thankful for the good that surrounds us. With a new year on the horizon, we can carry that hope and optimism into our daily activities with family, friends and community and raise the level of well-being for all of us - the people of Goodyear - who make this city our home.

Wishing you and your families a happy and safe holiday season.

Joe Pizzillo
