Congratulations to all of the statewide officeholders who took the oath of office today. What a great day for Arizona.
Gov. Ducey hit all the right themes in his speech. It was particularly gratifying to hear the governor speak of his desire to ensure that all of Arizona’s kids have access to great schools. We agree that a long waiting list shouldn’t stand between families and a world-class education.
And we agree wholeheartedly that Arizona has all the building blocks to become the number 1 job-creating state in the nation. With Gov. Ducey at the helm, we have a governor who will travel far and wide to carry the message that Arizona is open for business.
As the governor discussed in his speech, we face very real fiscal challenges in our state. But these challenges are not insurmountable. Gov. Ducey is setting to work to grow this economy, create jobs and bring prosperity to all of Arizona. The governor put today’s words into action with his first Executive Order, instituting a moratorium on regulatory rulemaking.
Arizona’s job creators look forward to working with Gov. Ducey to make Arizona the best state to live, work and grow a business.
