Among the mayor’s accomplishments cited by Jeffrey Bean with the U.S. Conference of Mayors, who presented the award, were creating the city’s Office of Economic Initiatives, compiling city business incentives into one place and adding to them, focusing on the Five T’s of technology, trade, transportation, tourism and teaching, and working to establish Tucson as a hub for international trade.

In accepting the award, Mayor Rothschild noted that most jobs are created by small businesses and that when they succeed, the city succeeds.
