PHOENIX — Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton is traveling to Mexico for the second
time in less than month.
The mayor is departing Monday for Hermosillo, Mexico for an event celebrating
the sister-cities relationship Phoenix has there.
Stanton made the journey to Hermosillo on Feb. 8 to speak with Mexican
officials about increasing cross-border trade and economic opportunities.
During that visit, Stanton met with Sonora Gov. Guillermo Padres Elias as part
of the Arizona-Mexico Commission’s Annual Fall/Winter Plenary Session.
This trip will mark Stanton’s seventh to Mexico. He has been making efforts to
improve relationships and bolster cross-border economic trade.
