    Doug Ducey, newly elected Republican Governor of the State of Arizona will give his State of the State address. Registration & Expo opens at 10 a.m. Luncheon & address at noon. RSVP by Tuesday, January 6, 2015.

    “The Tucson Metro Chamber will host Governor Doug Ducey at the annual State of the State luncheon to deliver the State of his State address detailing the issues affecting not only Southern Arizona, but the entire state of Arizona. This is a highly attended and visible event that addresses many important issues.

    Doug Ducey was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio and came to Arizona in 1982 to attend ASU, where he worked his way through college at Hensley & Co. After a stint at Procter & Gamble, Doug helped launch Cold Stone Creamery on its path to success. Alarmed by the state of the economy and the massive spending and debt that government was incurring, Doug decided to make a positive difference by seeking public office, and in 2010, was elected as Arizona’s 32nd state treasurer. In 2012, he led the opposition effort for Prop 204, which lost by a nearly two-to-one margin after Ducey pointed out that it was essentially a blank check with no reform or oversight. A proven coalition builder, he assembled an alliance of business and civic organizations in his successful effort to block Prop 204.”
