City Speak – Town of Dewey-Humboldt

Mayor John Hughes is honored to serve “Arizona’s Country Town,” Dewey-Humboldt. Hughes along with his wife Carie, the current president of the Arizona State Cowbelles, continue working together to provide a positive and family-friendly environment. They strive to bring unity to the community.

The couple personally contacted each first responder station to share how we would like to show our appreciation to them and their team, including sheriff, fire and EMT services.

Arizona State Cowbelles, through the Arizona Beef Council, are approved for beef funds, meaning we cannot give real money but we give beef products, such as the fresh ground beef packaged from Fry’s we dispensed to the first responders. We also honored requests for beef sticks and beef jerky – to provide snacks in grab bags while on call or just to have in the stations.

We will be doing a cooking demo with the firehouse in the near future.
