Arturo Garino, Mayor, City of Nogales, says putting the past in the past and working with other government agencies to help secure the border are among his goals. He says a recent U.S.-Mexico Border Mayors Association “summit” included discussion about border security.  He says Nogales gets unfairly portrayed as a dangerous place to live and do business because of drug violence in Mexico.  But he says, Nogales statistically is one of Arizona’s safest cities.
