“I’m always happy to call this unique and charming community my home. La Quinta is known as 'the Gem of the Desert' and exemplifies that in so many ways: gorgeous, desert-sensitive landscaping, numerous parks, hiking and biking trails, state-of-the-art fitness center, a library and museum that both feature the rich history of our City, and an outstanding public golf course.... great restaurants, hotels and shopping opportunities round out La Quinta's 'to-do' list. Yes, we have a lot to offer; however fiscal responsibility and public safety still remain our first priorities. I believe our residents are proud of what we’ve built over the past 30 years, and I'm humbled to be a part of it." - Kristy Franklin, Council Member
