She plans to meet with local ag leaders about issues facing the industry
YUMA, Ariz. (KECY, KYMA) - Current Arizona secretary of state and democratic nominee for governor Katie Hobbs is in Yuma today.
Hobbs received over 70% of the vote among Arizona democrats in this week's primary election, and a majority of the reported vote so far in Yuma county.
She is holding a roundtable with local ag leaders to discuss the state of the industry and the issues facing it, specifically historic drought conditions.
“My focus now is getting this process started so that we can hit the ground running day one," Hobbs said.
She says it will take a mix of innovation, regulation, and conservation to get through the drought.
“For so long our leaders have just kicked the can down the road to the point that we’re in crisis mode now,” Hobbs said.
