Building Strong Neighborhoods

Lorenzo knows that safety is the foundation for building strong neighborhoods. His record shows him consistently voting to strengthen the resources our first responders need to keep communities safe.

 

He also knows that trust between community members and first responders is vital to strong neighborhoods. It’s why Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone asked Lorenzo to serve on his Hispanic Advisory Board, leading discussions between community members and law enforcement to tackle tough issues and keep our community safe.

 

Lorenzo believes strong neighborhoods are a result of community pride. It’s why he led the efforts to bring back an annual founder’s day celebration, a point of pride in the district’s historical roots. He was proud to co-found a West Valley chapter of the NAACP, drawing members from across and beyond the district. And when vandals desecrated an historic cemetery with hate symbols and racial slurs, Lorenzo organized a candlelight vigil and community discussion on how to stop hate, restoring pride in the diversity of our community.
