Rose Mofford<div class="ExternalClassE29459D2AC1D4AB2B69CF6D0DDC3D05D"><p>Mayor Greg Stanton released the following statement today regarding the death of Gov. Rose Mofford:</p><p>"I am deeply saddened by the passing of Governor Rose Mofford. Gov. Mofford was an Arizona original, a gifted and groundbreaking leader, and a personal friend who swore me in when I took office as Mayor. When she became Arizona's first female governor, her calming leadership was just what our state needed during a tumultuous time. We should all emulate her style, which always reached beyond politics to bring people together to solve problems. True to her rural Arizona roots, she was one of the most generous and thoughtful people I have ever known, and we will never forget her contributions to our state."​  </p><p><img src="/mayorsite/MediaAssets/Rose%20Mofford%20at%20Innauguration%20Credit%20-Edward%20Jensen.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:400px;" /> </p><p><strong><em>Photo credit - Edward Jensen </em></strong></p><p style="text-align:center;"><strong>-30-</strong></p></div>9/15/2016 9:45:00 PMRobbie Sherwood 480-246-7944
