Doug Ducey on Environment

 

 


Turn Arizona into international capital for water technology

Last year we came together and passed the Drought Contingency Plan. It was the most significant water policy in 40 years. But we shouldn't be dealing with this issue one generation at a time. We need a strategic ongoing effort to turn Arizona into the international capital for water technology. Look at all that Israel has done. Why not Arizona? We've been a leader on water, and with this approach, we will continue to be an even stronger leader far into the future.

19-year drought: protect Lake Mead and Colorado River

The issues we need to tackle aren't partisan ones. In some cases, they aren't even political. At the top of that list: securing our water future. Now stay with me--this is not an issue that leads the news. It doesn't make for a snappy headline, or a provocative soundbite, and it can't be explained in 280 characters. But as I traveled the state this year, it's one of the issues I was asked about most by real people--especially in rural Arizona. It's an issue that deserves your focus and attention. Which is why it's first on my list.

Here's the bottom line: We're in a 19-year drought. It's going to get worse before it gets better. Arizona and our neighboring states draw more water from the Colorado River than Mother Nature puts back. It's time to protect Lake Mead. It's time to ratify the Drought Contingency Plan. Doing so will require compromise. No one stakeholder is going to get everything they want. This issue is important and it's urgent. Our economy. Our environment. Our future.

Keep decisions in hands of Arizonans, not EPA bureaucrats

State Rep. Bob Thorpe [endorses]: "Doug Ducey exhibits the no-nonsense leadership Arizona needs today. As both a successful businessman and state treasurer, Doug has demonstrated proven capabilities, earning my respect and support. As governor, Doug and the state legislature will work to ensure that Arizona job creation, education, health care and environmental protections are in the hands of Arizonans, not east coast Obama bureaucrats. For a successful Arizona, we need Doug Ducey as our next governor."
