On February 7, 2018, the United States Conference of Mayors and the Partner America Program is honored to present Mayor Greg Stanton of Phoenix, Arizona for his dedication to the small business community of his city.
Born in Phoenix in 1970, Stanton was raised in “The Valley” and graduated from Cortez High School. He then went on to earn his Bachelors of Arts degree in history and political science, and his Junior Doctorate from Marquette University, and the University of Michigan Law School, respectively.
From 1995 to 2000, Stanton worked as an education attorney before jumping right into the political arena, when he was elected to Phoenix City Council for District 6 throughout the 2000s, and ending his service in 2009. In 2011, Stanton ran a successful mayoral campaign and has since made small business a key area of focus in his office.
In recognition of Mayor Greg Stanton’s focus on building Phoenix through small business, the Partner America Small Business Advocate award will be presented to him on February 7, 2018. The award will be presented to Mayor Stanton at The Atrium at City Hall 200 W. Washington St., Phoenix, AZ 85003.
