Phoenix mayor eyes Northern California for jobs

Phoenix officials are eyeing Northern California as a possible source of new jobs for Arizona’s largest city.

Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton’s office says Stanton, City Manager David Cavazos and an economic development official will travel next week to San Francisco and Silicon Valley to woo companies considering relocations or expansions outside California.

Stanton says in a statement that Phoenix wants to partner with technology and manufacturing companies so they can be mutually successful.

Stanton’s office says it won’t release the names of the companies involved because of what it calls “the confidential nature of the visits.”

  1. Why would any forward-thinking corporation in the high-tech want to come to Arizona with laws moving rapidly into the dark ages, and a state that values incarceration over education? I applaud his effort but he is swimming upstream against the entrenched “good ole” boys who have taken Arizona backwards.
