[ARCHIVED] Mayor Ken Miyagishima Delivers 2022 State of the City Address

2022 Mayors State of the City Address

Las Cruces Mayor Ken Miyagishima delivered his annual State of the City Address on Wednesday, March 2, 2022, in Council Chambers at City Hall, 700 N. Main St.
 The approximately 25-minute speech focused on highlights the City has accomplished during the past year. Mayor Miyagishima also shared his goals and initiatives for City government in 2022.
 While emphasizing the state of the city is strong, the Mayor added it is because of the commitment Las Crucens have made to adapt, overcome and achieve time and again during the COVID-19 pandemic which has continued to test residents for almost two years.
 “Fortunately, we enjoy a commitment to one another and a vision for the city, a faith in our abilities and best intentions, and a record of shared effort and success. That’s why the state of our city is strong,” Mayor Miyagishima said.
 The Mayor recognized the leadership of City Manager Ifo Pili and the dedication and perseverance of City employees to maintain City government services and operations at high levels. He reflected on how the day-to-day operations of city government and the lives of city residents continued despite the multitude of changes and challenges the pandemic has posed.

“We redoubled our efforts for those in need. We took care of one another and the tasks before us, and in thousands of quiet ways got important work done,” Mayor Miyagishima said.
