Glendale Mayor Jerry Weiers touted a list of accomplishments from the last year at his annual State of the City address, Thursday, March 1 at the Renaissance Hotel and Spa, 9495 W. Coyotes Blvd.
“Deciding what to share with you tonight was very, very clear to me: our city continues to experience unparalleled growth. And that’s certainly reason to celebrate,” Mayor Weiers said toward the top of his speech. “As I reflect on 2017, I can’t help but smile.”

Father Thyme’s chili won the People’s Choice award at the Feb. 24 event, with Glendale Firefighter Charities’ Firehouse Chili coming in second and Knights of Columbus placing third.
