Associa, an industry leader in community management, featured U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) as guest speaker at its Bipartisan Business Forum event Aug. 28 at the firm’s Client Shared Services Center (CSSC) in Richardson, Texas.
“I like to work across the aisle with anyone who will work with me to get the job done," Sinema said. "I like to visit with middle market businesses like Associa and listen to what corporate leaders think needs to happen to help them run smoother, grow and thrive."
Introduced by John Carona, CEO of Associa and former Texas State Senator, Sinema spoke before a group of nearly 60 Metroplex area business leaders on tax reform, immigration, U.S. exports and education.
"Education is a top priority," Sinema said. "Schools should be letting students know about projected high-demand career opportunities and better train them to be prepared for the jobs of tomorrow."
