    I am asking you to support the City Navigator position. Refugee and immigration families would benefit from dedicated support staff that can help them access the benefits they are entitled to. Please support and adequately fund this position so that families have the resources they need to thrive in our communities.

    I am in support of the proposed budget which includes increased funding for Arts and Culture grant funding and public art maintenance and also for the increased funding the Historic Preservation Office's Threatened Building fund. Increased funding in these areas is greatly appreciated and will enable greater dispersal that can only help improve the quality of life here in Phoenix.

    Thank you for the proposed budget for a refugee navigator to provide support for refugees and immigrants in our community. Phoenix is a welcoming city and needs this position to continue serving the community in a coordinated, efficient way. This will help the city support refugees, resettlement agencies, ethnic based community orgs, and other refugee serving orgs in an equitable and transparent manner. Please meet with ALL stakeholders to identify the responsibilities of this position.

Thank you for your support for the Arts grant program and the public art maintenance funding (which is critical to upkeep of our investment in the city's public arts projects.
