by John Safin

Southwest Valley Chamber of Commerce president and CEO

How’s that New Year’s resolution coming along? According to 2014 statistics, 45 percent of Americans make a resolution and only 8 percent actually achieve success. Most resolutions are challenging and achieved with discipline and continued motivation.

Southwest Valley Chamber of Commerce president and CEO

Goodyear is open for business

Bill Stippby Bill Stipp
Goodyear city councilman

You do not have to be a long-time Goodyear resident to know that the city has, and continues to grow.

As our population continues to expand, development and industry will undoubtedly follow.
