Gov. Ducey Meets with Non-Profit Leaders in Yuma, Touts Border Partnership

Oct 4, 2018

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey said the partnership between leaders in Arizona and Mexico has never been better, thanks to the Arizona-Mexico Commission.

Ducey, who is running for re-election in November, touted the commission when he met with non-profit leaders from across Yuma County at the Pivot Point Conference Center in Yuma on Thursday morning.

"You're always going to have issues at the border," Ducey told KAWC. "You're also going to have opportunities at the border."

"I want to work with people in south Yuma County so that we're bringing the proper resources whether it's from public safety and and protection, focusing on drug cartels, human trafficking, child sex trafficking, along with the people that have needs down there," he said.

The governor's previous visit to Yuma County was Aug. 24, when he visited the site of a former drug tunnel inside a former fast food restaurant in San Luis.

Gov. Ducey was also scheduled to visit the Yuma Community Food Bank on Thursday.
