Named in honor of Gabe Zimmerman, who lost his life on January 8, 2011 while serving the citizens of Arizona as Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords’ community outreach director, the awards recognize honorees in three categories – Community Builder, Emerging Leader and Civic Leader – that exemplify the impact that dedicated and talented people have connecting communities and engaging citizens, just as Gabe Zimmerman did.

City and Town Budgets

Every year by mid-July, each Arizona city and town is required by law to adopt a balanced budget that is open to citizen input and participation. Each resident can have a voice in deciding what the budget will be spent on and how it will be paid for in the months before it is adopted. But, this process depends on the input of residents to determine what is important in their community and how much they are willing to pay for the services they choose.

Your Voice at the Capitol

Each session the League prepares Your Voice at the Capitol. This document provides a listing of state legislators by district, their contact information, and the cities and towns they represent. In addition, you will find helpful tips for navigating the legislative process and being effective at the Capitol.

Arizona City and Town Data

The League has created a city/town data sheet with facts, information and statistics about the 91 cities and towns in Arizona. We have provided this information in an excel format so the data can be utilized for research and information gathering purposes.
