IN OUR PRAYERS: Former Phoenix Mayor & Western Savings Executive John Driggs In Home Hospice, Wife Gail Suffered Heart Attack

Our prayers going out to John Driggs, his wife Gail, and their family today.  Arizona Senate Majority Whip Adam Driggs reports that his father, who was Phoenix Mayor in the 1970's, is dying and was brought home on Monday. "Related to the stress," Adam also notes that his mother, Gail, had a heart attack and was hoping to be released from the hospital.

Besides serving as Mayor, John, 87, was also a long-time executive with the family business, Western Savings.*

Through the MCRC Briefs newsletter, Adam urges friends to share memories of best wishes on either father or son's Facebook pages.

*Western Savings was taken over by the federal government's Resolution Trust Corporation in the S&L bust of the late 1980's.
