                     RECOGNIZING MAYOR HARVEY SKOOG

  (Mr. GOSAR asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 
minute.)
  Mr. GOSAR. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize Mayor Harvey Skoog 
of Prescott Valley, Arizona, who will be retiring next month after a 
long career of public service. Mayor Skoog has served the community of 
Prescott Valley for almost three decades on the city council, 19 years 
of which he served as mayor.
  Along with his many years of public service, Skoog is known for his 
pride and appreciation for his family. He moved with his family from 
the Valley of the Sun to Prescott Valley in 1982. He and Edna, his wife 
of 60 years, have 9 children, 61 grandchildren, and 43 great 
grandchildren.
  During his time as mayor, he has received many honors, including 
serving on the League of Arizona Cities and Towns executive board and 
as the chairman of the Greater Arizona Mayors Association. He was also 
appointed by Governor Jan Brewer to the Homeland Security Senior 
Advisory Committee for the State of Arizona.
  Outside of public service, Mayor Skoog has been a successful small-
business owner, developing three accounting practices in the Prescott 
Valley area.
  Mayor Skoog has been a shining example of a true public servant and 
an outstanding friend to me and my staff over my years in Congress. I 
wish him well in his retirement and thank him for his service to the 
Prescott Valley and the entire State of Arizona.
