On March 1, 2017, the United States Conference of Mayors and the Partner America Program will recognize the honorable Jonathan Rothschild, Mayor of the City of Tucson, for his contributions to his local small business community, with a Small Business Advocate Award.
Throughout his six years in office, Mayor Rothschild has focused heavily on expanding the “Five T’s of Tucson’s economy,” including the development and expansion of technology, trade, transportation, tourism and teaching. These efforts have seen increased aerospace & defense, bioscience, optics and solar technology job creation, an over $8.6 billion export industry to Mexico, improved public and commercial transportation, and the further establishment of Tucson as an international economic and trading hub for the United States.
Recognizing Tucson’s unique geographical and historical significance, Mayor Rothschild has worked hard in developing the local tourism industry. This has included coordination with local festivals, organizers and Visit Tuscon to create new attractions including the Tucson Festival of Film, and the Tucson Jazz Festival. These efforts have significantly supported the over $1.8 billion per year tourism industry, accounting for 1 in every 10 jobs for the citizens of Tucson.
In recognition of his extraordinary efforts to support Tucson’s business environment, Mayor Rothschild will be presented the Partner America / US Conference of Mayor’s Small Business Advocate Award. If you are a business owner in the City of Tucson, this is an invaluable opportunity to meet and speak with your Mayor, learn more about opportunities, methods and practices to improve and develop your business from Partner America’s Keynote Speaker, Curtis Cello. Also, hear more about economic and small business opportunities from Tuscon's community leaders, and network with other local business owners.
