“We have utilized the core values of professionalism and integrity and continuous improvement and teamwork. This budget would not have been put together and balanced without our team coming together and working towards that effort. A lot of effort was put into the budget, countless hours. I’d like to thank Patty Torres, City Secretary/Comptroller, Mark Rushing, Assistant Comptroller who is on the budget team, and a welcome addition to the city finance team. Lisa Adames, who serves on the budget team as well as the City finance team, directors and city staff for their tireless work on the budget. ”
