 Gabaldon appointed to Southeast Arizona Citizens Forum Board


STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX– Rep. Rosanna Gabaldon, D-Sahuarita (District 2), will serve as a member of the Southeast Arizona Citizens Forum Board formed by the United States Section of the International Boundary and Water Commission.

“I am honored that I was asked to serve on the Southeast Arizona Citizens Forum Board.  Water and border issues are important to my district,” Gabaldon said. “I will be proactively involved with the USIBWC to promote the exchange of information between the USIBWC and the community about commission projects and related activities in Pima, Cochise and Santa Cruz counties.”

The USIBWC was established in 1889 to apply boundary and water treaties between Mexico and the United States. The commission, composed of international members, helps to settle any differences that may arise. The Citizens Forum is intended to bring together community members, enabling the early and continued two-way flow of information, concerns, values, and needs between the USIBWC and the general public, environmentalists, government agencies, municipalities, and other interested parties.

Gabaldon is one of nine members appointed to the board.  The board will meet at 5 p.m. on Thursday, March 14 at Las Campanas Social Center, 565 West Belltower Dr. in Green Valley, Arizona.  At that meeting, the USIBWC will present an overview of commission history, mission and projects focusing on activities in Southeast Arizona.
