Former Mayor honored
Former Douglas Mayor Dr. Gomez was honored earlier this month with the Tony Certosimo Award at a formal event held June 8 in Tucson.
Mayor Gomez was one of three border town mayors honored for their proven effectiveness of support and collaboration in revitalizing the border communities.
In addition to Mayor Gomez, Nogales’ Mayor Arturo Garino and San Luis’ former Mayor Juan Carlos Escamilla were also honored.
The Tony Certosimo Award commemorates the spirit of the Arizona Mexico Commission’s first executive director. Mr. Certosimo’s dedication and leadership enabled the AMC to grow into the vibrant organization.
