Several mayors are backing Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey’s efforts to craft a new deal with Native American tribes to restrict new casinos in the Phoenix area.
Scottsdale Mayor Jim Lane, Tempe Mayor Mark Mitchell, Mesa Mayor John Giles, Chandler Mayor Jay Tibshraeny, Gilbert Mayor Jennifer Daniels and the mayors of Apache Junction, Fountain Hills and Litchfield Park penned Ducey a support letter Dec. 20.
Ducey and several Native American tribes are pushing for new agreements limiting new casinos in the Phoenix market but allowing for more gambling at existing casinos.
