The 108th Arizona Town Hall: Arizona & Mexico

Town Hall Arizona Mexico

The 108th Arizona Town Hall, ( which convened at Casino Del Sol Resort in Tucson in April 2016, developed consensus on the topic of “Arizona & Mexico.” The full text of these recommendations is contained in this final report.

An essential element to the success of these consensus-driven discussions is this background report that is provided to all participants before the Town Hall convenes. Morrison Institute at Arizona State University coordinated this informative background material, in partnership with Northern Arizona University, the University of Arizona and other industry professionals who have lent their time and talent to this effort. Together they have created a unique resource for a full understanding of the topic.

For sharing their wealth of knowledge and professional talents, our thanks go to the report’s authors. Our deepest gratitude also goes to Sapna Gupta, Senior Policy Analyst, Morrison Institute for Public Policy, who marshaled authors, created content and served as editor of the report.

The 108th Town Hall could not occur without the financial assistance of our generous Professional Partners, which include Premier Partner Arizona Public Service (APS); Collaborator Partner Arizona Lottery; and Civic Leader Partners Agnese Nelms Haury Trust, Jennings Strouss & Salmon, and Snell & Wilmer LLP.

The consensus recommendations that were developed during the course of the 108th Town Hall have been combined with the background report into this single final report that will be shared with public officials, community and business leaders, Arizona Town Hall members and many others.

This report, containing the thoughtful recommendations of the 108th Town Hall participants, is already being used as a resource, a discussion guide and an action plan on how best to leverage economic ties and develop partnerships across Arizona and Mexico for the benefit of the region.
