Phoenix mayor recruiting Silicon Valley businesses

PHOENIX — Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton wants businesses in Silicon Valley to
relocate to Arizona.

Stanton traveled to California this week to sell Phoenix as a prime location
for technology and manufacturing jobs.

Stanton said Phoenix needs to proactively attract employers.

Stanton’s office would not say what companies he is approaching in California
because the meetings are confidential.

Stanton has traveled to Silicon Valley in the past to persuade companies there
to relocate or open new branches in Phoenix.

He also has made several recent trips to Mexico to promote international trade.

Stanton was elected mayor in 2011.
