Tuzi's Sister-City Mayor Needs Your Support
Rochester Hills Mayor, Bryan K. Barnett is kicking off his re-election campaign on Sunday March 13, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. at St. Paul's Catholic Church and Community Center.
Mayor Barnett's ties with our Community:
- Tuz, Montenegro became our Sister City in March 2007. This relationship has led to many projects, including “Two for Tuz,” where school supplies were collected from residents and shipped to students in Montenegro, thanks to the generous contributions made by St. Paul’s Albanian Catholic Church.
- Rochester Hills hosted the President of Albania, his Excellency Mr. Bamir Topi, on his first-ever visit to Michigan. It was an honor to welcome him to our Albanian community and be a guest at St. Paul’s Albanian Catholic Church.
- During his trip to Tuz in 2008, Barnett gained valuable insight into the way the city operates, it truly was a learning experience. The highlight of the trip was sharing that Rochester College had donated a four-year scholarship. As a result, we have welcomed our first Albanian exchange student, Drita Dushaj.
Please join Mayor Barnett and the Albanian community on March 13th as we plan for a better Rochester Hills coupled with a brighter future for Tuz, Malesia.
