Partner Council Update

Steve Chucri, newly elected Maricopa County Supervisor for District 2, joined Partner Council members for a Leader’s Dialogue lunch on March 13. Partner Council member CCS Presentation Systems kindly provided the venue for the event.

Supervisor Steve Chucri shared his vision for enhancements at the county government level ranging from on-line licensing applications to a more streamlined approval process. He discussed the process now underway to appoint a new supervisor to fill the vacancy which resulted from the resignation of Supervisor Max Wilson on March 11. The informal gathering provided an opportunity for Partner Council attendees to receive candid answers to questions that ranged from the County Supervisors’ relationship with the Sheriff’s department to the problem of a limited workforce for the restaurant industry.

Events planned in the near future include:

What:  Partner Council Wine Reception

When: Late April or early May – exact date still to be confirmed

Time:  5:00 pm to 7:00 PM

Where:  6121 East Orchid Lane, Paradise Valley

What:  Partner Council Lunch

When: Sometime in June – exact date still to be confirmed

Time:  11:30 am – 1:00 pm
