In this episode, celebrate Public Works Week with us as we get to know the people and services of the Town of Marana Public Works Department. Director Ryan Mahoney and Streets Superintendent Cookie Gallegos join us for an in-depth conversation about their jobs, and participate in a fun trivia challenge that explores the history of public works.
Making their Your Town debut in Episode 20 of the podcast are the singers and players of the Marana High School Choir and Orchestra. In this episode, we chat with the choir director Sarah Ross and orchestra director Rachel Vega. Then, for the first time on the podcast, we listen to some music! Students will perform excerpts from what they’ve got in store for the Holiday Festival. Finally, we wrap up with the Expert Challenge, where the students see if they can outsmart their teachers. Give us a listen!
In this Episode, we hear from Marana’s Police Chief Terry Rozema about the state of public safety in Your Town. He discusses how the department has handled the opening of the new mall, his reflections on the media attention Marana received when an officer struck a suspect with his vehicle, and his recent recognition from the Marana Rotary Club as Man of the Year.
During this episode of the Your Town Podcast, we take another look at Marana Schools. Principal David Mandel and Assistant Superintendent Kristin Reidy share some of the exciting ways MUSD is partnering with the Town. They also take a stab at answering questions from the Arizona state tests for the Your Town Trivia Challenge.
In this episode, the Your Town podcast learns about Marana 2.0 and how high school students are getting involved in local government. In the quiz, we test a teacher’s and student’s knowledge about the Marana High School student handbook. You’ll be surprised about what we found in there.
