Gov. Susana Martinez is traveling to Tucson, Ariz., to encourage business leaders in that community to consider investing in New Mexico, according to the Governor’s Office.
After traveling to Tucson tonight, the governor will speak tomorrow at a Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce women’s event, Martinez spokesman Enrique Knell said. She is expected to focus her remarks on a recent tax package approved by the Legislature that, among other things, will lower New Mexico’s corporate income tax rate.
The first-term Republican governor will also have a separate fundraiser while in Tucson, Knell said.
The Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce will pay for the governor’s travel costs, he added. Martinez is scheduled to return to New Mexico later tomorrow.
The brief trip continues a recent travel trend that has seen Martinez visit California, Nevada, Colorado and Washington D.C. for both political and official events.
