Statement from Council Member Richard Richard G. Fimbres

Over the past several months, various friends, co-workers and constituents have asked me about my health after noticing me enduring some physical discomfort at certain times. The fact is that I have been dealing with severe back and shoulder pain for quite some time.

During this time, I have kept working at the office, and I have attended meetings, including Mayor and Council meetings, virtually, per my doctors’ recommendations.

I will undergo a surgical procedure next month for my back and tomorrow, for my shoulder, that I hope will bring some relief.

As I prepare for both procedures, I am asking for your thoughts and prayers. I thank the good citizens of the City of Tucson, Ward 5, city staff and the Mayor, and my colleagues on the Council for your support during these times.

I will continue to carry out my duties as I work with my doctors to address these issues.
