Attracting high paying jobs and new industry and securing funding for infrastructure projects are top priorities for Arizona’s new U.S. senator, Mark Kelly, who spoke to the real estate community Friday.
At the top of his list, however, is helping to quickly advance a new federal stimulus package to help families and small businesses still struggling from the effects of the pandemic, said Kelly (D), who laid out his priorities at a virtual breakfast meeting of the nonprofit Valley Partnership, the voice of the real estate community in the Phoenix region.
“There’s still a lot or work ahead to beat this virus and rebuild our economy. That’s my focus,” Kelly said. “We need to pass this relief bill quickly. Not only to tackle the virus but also to get our economy back on track. That is critical. We need to do that now.”
