PHOENIX – Gov. Doug Ducey and the town of Gilbert were among those honored Monday during the Arizona Chamber of Commerce’s annual awards luncheon.

The governor received the organization’s 2019 Milton Friedman Award for his pro-business policies during the event at the JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn Resort and Spa.

The chamber named Gilbert the state’s best city for business.

Three state lawmakers also earned recognition, with Sen. Vince Leach and Rep. Warren Peterson named legislators of the year and Sen. Lisa Otando cited for special recognition.

Two executives involved in the seven-state drought contingency plan on Colorado River water rights received the chamber’s Transformational Initiative Award: Arizona Department of Water Resources Director Tom Buschatzke and Central Arizona Project General Manager Ted Cooke.

The award for volunteer of the year went to Michelle Bolton, Cox Communications’ director of government affairs for the Southwest region.
