This afternoon, an audience of roughly 400 gathered at the Westin La Paloma Resort to see a surprised Sheriff Clarence W. Dupnik. Unbeknownst to the long term public servant, Tucson City Councilman Steve Kozachik and Tucson’s own David Fitzsimmons spearheaded this surprise event in honor of our Sheriff who has served the citizens of Pima County for 57 years.
