Three attorneys in the Pima County Attorney’s office have been recognized by the State Bar of Arizona for their efforts in the courtroom and the community.

John W. “Bill” Dickinson was presented the 2008 Public Lawyer Career Achievement Award. It recognizes retired or retiring public attorneys “who have had a distinguished career” of public service, and are identified as “models of the dedication and commitment of public attorneys,” a release said.   Dickinson has prosecuted more than 200 felony trials during his career.

Kathleen Mayer received the 2008 Michael C. Cudahy Criminal Justice Award, because she has “worked tirelessly to advance the principles of criminal justice by representing the public’s interest with integrity, fairness, tenacity, creativity, brilliance and professionalism.” She is a prosecutor.

Thomas J. Rankin is recipient of the 2008 Distinguished Public Lawyer Award, because he has “worked tirelessly to prosecute those who violate the law and threaten and endanger the safety of others. … He is relentless in the pursuit of justice, the prosecution of criminals, and the protection of the community.”

“I am very pleased that the diligence and hard work of these prosecutors is recognized by the Arizona State Bar,” Pima County Attorney Barbara LaWall said. “The work they do for the citizens of Pima County is phenomenal. Their many accomplishments make them very worthy of these awards.”

The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
