Mayors from throughout Arizona are declaring their support for Proposition 204, the Quality Education and Jobs Act. The coalition of mayors supporting investment in education, childhood health care and infrastructure includes Greg Stanton of Phoenix, Jonathan Rothschild of Tucson, Mark Mitchell of Tempe, Bob Barrett of Peoria and Arturo Garino of Nogales.

All of the mayors cited education investment as essential to economic development, and to becoming competitive in a global high-tech economy.

“Prop. 204 is not just the right thing to do for schools and our kids, it is absolutely essential from an economic development standpoint,” Stanton said. “Supporting our schools with stable and permanent funding sends the right message to the rest of the world that we aim to compete globally as a region. Defunding our schools sends the exact wrong message. Bottom line: if you support education then you support Proposition 204.”
