Businesses are Coming to Arizona Since Passage of SB1070!

Where do you get your news? If you’re getting it from the Arizona Republic, the EV Tribune, or Recall candidate Jerry Lewis, you have been misinformed.

The Leftists have been smearing Arizona’s reputation and its “faltering” economy since the passage of SB1070.

Silence Dogood, Gilbert Watch contributing researcher, has disproved all of that with research that was provided in two Gilbert Watch articles: Russell Pearce and SB1070 Good for Arizona: Part 1 and Russell Pearce and SB1070 Good for Arizona: Part 2

Now these same Leftist groups, including Jerry Lewis, RINO, are attempting to convince Arizonans that “people don’t want to move their businesses here.” (Stated by Jerry Lewis in the October 6 debate.)

Are they confusing Arizona with California? Businesses are evacuating California by the trainload. Arizona is one of the top 6 most desirable states attracting business! Businesses Leaving California

"In 2010, 204 California companies expanded outside the state or moved out completely, according to a newly released report. This number is four times greater than that of the previous year. The major beneficiaries of business exodus from California are Texas, Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, and Utah.”

The unemployment rate in California is 12.1% by the way. Unemployment in California

Arizona is well known to be one of the most business friendly states in America!
