Business & Economy

When I campaigned in 2020, one of the four main issues I ran on was diversifying the economy.

 Mesquite's economy is largely dependent on tourism.  The business of tourism is based on discretionary spending.  With economic downturns or the high inflation numbers we see in today's economy, discretionary spending is not a solid foundation. 

I campaigned on making Mesquite a better place to bring in higher-paying 
distribution, industrial, and manufacturing jobs.  We have had success with this, even in this economy, with the Crown Cork and Seal aluminum can factory coming to town, as well as other manufacturing businesses such as Hawaii Food Carts (a premiere manufacturer of food trailers).

Going forward, I will continue to be a strong proponent of economic and land incentives to attract more industry to Mesquite!
