On Tuesday, the American Subcontractors Association of Arizona hosted a gubernatorial candidate panel to discuss policies vital to economic development and improvement of the business environment for the construction industry. Former Go Daddy Executive Vice President Christine Jones, Secretary of State Ken Bennett, Mesa Mayor Scott Smith and State Senator Al Melvin participated in the panel.
“In order for Arizona to become an economic powerhouse, it is imperative that our next governor understand the nexus of business and policy,” Jones said. “Today’s panel offered very distinct visions for the future of our state and I was honored to share my background as a policy maker and business leader to outline my plans to grow our local economies, create jobs, and stand up to the federal government on issues such as overregulation. I would like to thank the American Subcontractors Association for hosting today’s substantive discussion on economic development, an issue of critical importance to Arizona’s future.”
