Thursday February 28 marks the date for Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton to deliver his state of the city speech and indications are he will speak about a lot of positive steps the city made in 2012, plans for the new year and beyond.
Stanton will speak at a luncheon at the Sheraton Phoenix Downtown Hotel. The event takes place from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Preliminary word on the state of the city is that Stanton will talk about Phoenix’s hot streak in job creation, education, sustainability, stronger and safer neighborhoods and making city government work for the community. The Mayor will also share his plans for 2013 and years to come, his priorities and ways he will work in the community to make Phoenix a better city for everyone.
"We have worked together to lead our region and make our city stronger, but out work is not done yet,” Stanton said. “Our success as a city will depend on how we prioritize education, technology, medicine and business so Phoenix can compete globally and on the forefront of innovation and onto a successful economy.”
“The Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce is proud to host Mayor Stanton’s state of the city address as part of our ongoing relationship with the Mayor and the City of Phoenix,” said Todd Sanders, Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce President and CEO. “This event is a great opportunity for our community to come together to celebrate our successes under Mayor Stanton’s leadership this past year and learn about his vision for the future.”
