Summer Recap: Covering Ground in Arizona’s 9th District

Investing in Smart Transportation and Infrastructure

Building local transit options→ I checked in on Tempe Streetcar construction and visited businesses along the future route with Downtown Tempe Authority. This is the first modern streetcar line in the Valley and will serve one of the highest transit ridership centers in our region.

Promoting Trade and Economic Activity at the Southern Border

A visit to Yuma border facilities→ I traveled to Yuma to visit the Port of San Luis II and Yuma Border Patrol Holding Facility with State House Minority Leader Charlene Fernandez to tour the border facilities and meet with local leaders in agriculture, trade, transportation and economic development. We heard directly from Customs officers about the commercial inspection process and from industry experts about the ways trade benefits Arizona.

Planning for Arizona’s Water Future

Water’s role in the economy→ At the Congressional Conference on Water hosted by ASU, I moderated a panel of experts and business leaders to explore the consequences of ignoring our state’s water challenges. By working together, we can plan for water security and protect our economy.

Listening to Arizonans

A conversation about Valley Fever→ Rep. David Schweikert and I hosted a bipartisan round table about an infectious fungus that uniquely affects our region: Valley Fever. We heard from public health experts about why the difficult-to-diagnose disease is on the rise, as well as from patients who have confronted Valley Fever first-hand. We’re cosponsoring legislation that would support more research to find a cure.
