Mayor Greg Stanton, chair of the U.S. Conference of Mayors Defense Transition Task Force, sent a letter to Arizona’s Congressional delegation reminding them of the crushing fiscal effects of sequestration on the Phoenix region, the hub of Arizona’s economy.

As chair of the task force, Stanton has worked for nearly a year with a bipartisan group of mayors nationwide to urge Congress to find a solution to the sweeping package of mandated federal budget cuts due to begin March 1.

Stanton said Arizona has a chance to improve its image by showing the nation that our Congressional members can work in a bipartisan way to solve a problem that is bigger than politics.
