STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – Rep. Catherine Miranda, D-Phoenix (District 27), today released this statement regarding efforts to repair flood damage in parts of the district she represents.
“Recovering from the floods will take a community effort. Last month, Laveen received nearly four inches of rain, and New River received 6.85 inches of rain, which contributed to flash floods that damaged both homes and businesses in the area. But the people of Arizona are coming together to help, and the business community is stepping up as well.
“Right now, I am working with Home Depot to provide assistance to veterans whose homes are in need of repair. Additionally, Gov. Jan Brewer has requested federal disaster assistance from the U.S. Small Business Administration for Maricopa County. I commend the governor’s efforts, Home Depot’s generosity and the hard work and determination of the people of Maricopa County. I am confident that if we continue to work together, we’ll be able to fix the damage done by these floods quickly and efficiently.”
