Mayor: Coolidge headed in the “right” direction

Mayor: Coolidge headed in the “right” direction

by Rofida Khairalla | Coolidge Examiner

Although Coolidge Days celebrates the city, residents and the president the municipality was named after in 1925, the festival is also a time reflect upon the past and look toward future of Coolidge in a rapidly growing and changing county.

Once a rural, farming community located near the heart of a relatively rural central Arizona, Coolidge — like surrounding areas such as Eloy, Maricopa and even Gilbert — was known for the abundance of agricultural land and cotton production.

But that perspective, according to Mayor Jon Thompson, is slowly changing, with an eye toward sustaining positive growth instead of simply looking to the past.
