THATCHER — Following his decision to not seek re-election and retire from the Thatcher Town Council, Mayor Bob Rivera received tribute from the Arizona League of Cities and Towns.
Rivera received a plaque of appreciation from the League during Monday’s Thatcher Town Council meeting.
“It’s an honor to represent, not only the League, to represent the Town of Thatcher and the area around us,” Rivera said.
Rivera has served the community on the Town Council for 28 years — having been first appointed in 1992 and winning re-election every four years since — and has been mayor for nearly 18 of those years
He was elected to the executive committee for the League of Arizona Cities and Towns in 2003, serving eight two-year terms. He represents the cities and town in Graham, Greenlee and Gila counties on the League’s executive committee.
