Senator highlighted how regional investments in water security, transportation infrastructure, and broadband fuel a healthy local economy

BULLHEAD CITY – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema held a roundtable discussion with local leaders and business owners from Bullhead City to discuss how investments she’s delivered to the region – particularly in water security, transportation infrastructure, and high-speed internet connectivity – help grow a healthy, resilient local economy. 

“The best way to deliver real, lasting results to the communities I serve is by working side-by-side with Arizonans in all parts of our state. I’ll keep collaborating with communities like Bullhead City with a laser focus on developing and delivering solutions to the challenges they face,” said Sinema. 

Sinema met with community leaders – including local elected officials, school superintendents, and business owners – to detail how investments she’s delivered to the region help fuel a healthy economy. The roundtable participants shared with Sinema additional local priorities that will help ensure their communities can thrive for generations to come. 

Sinema pledged to work with local leaders to support grant applications and funding requests that achieve many of the region’s top priorities, advancing projects that promote economic freedom and opportunities while making historic investments in Arizona’s water future, safety, transportation, and more. 

In the Fiscal Year 2023 bipartisan federal appropriations legislation, Sinema secured full funding for the Bullhead City New Drinking Water Well Construction Project – a $2,000,000 investment delivering clean, reliable drinking water to Arizona families across the city. The Senator delivered regional priorities like the Mohave County for Grace Neal Channel Stormwater Project in the same legislation. 

Participants in Sinema’s roundtable included Bullhead City Mayor Steve D’Amico, Former Bullhead City Mayor Tom Brady, Bullhead City Vice Mayor Rodney Head, Bullhead City Elementary School District Superintendent Carolyn Stewart, Colorado River Union High School District Superintendent Tim Richard, Bullhead City Chamber of Commerce Board Member John Hassett, River Cities Newspaper President & CEO Rich Macke, Laughlin River Tours Owner Brea Chiodini, El Charro Mexican Restaurant Owner Angelica Beltran, Mohave County Supervisor Hildy Angius, and Bullhead City Manager Toby Cotter.
