About Mayor Rothschild:
Mayor Jonathan Rothschild came to City Hall promising accountability in government, increased emphasis on economic growth and help for those most in need.
Since taking office, the mayor helped settle the long-standing Rio Nuevo dispute, opening a new era of downtown redevelopment. He codified and increased incentives for Tucson businesses. And, he led efforts to invest in Tucson’s roads and police and fire departments, making for better streets and a safer city.
Mayor Rothschild’s work in Mexico has been recognized in both Washington, DC and Mexico City. He is a leading advocate for developing infrastructure in Sonora and Arizona that will create an economic region where both states are prosperous and secure.
Program initiatives such as Community Schools, supporting college and career readiness; Help for Homebuyers, providing down payment and other assistance; Steps to Success, re-enrolling dropouts in high school; and 10,000 Trees, adding shade and beauty to our city; are just a few examples of how Mayor Rothschild works to engage the community in creating a better Tucson.
Mayor Rothschild is a native Tucsonan. Prior to becoming mayor, he had a 30-year career practicing law with the firm of Mesch, Clark & Rothschild. He is married, with three children and two grandchildren.
