Bring Amazon to Douglas, Arizona

This petition had 597 supporters

The City of Douglas is a small community in Southeastern Arizona that is continually looking for progress, economic growth, and new opportunities for revitalization. In the past year, city officials have made great strides in communicating with corporations and businesses in order to improve revenue coming into the city and increase local prosperity. Douglas is situated on the border with Agua Prieta, Sonora, Mexico and has plenty of land available for commercial development. A feasibility study for a new commercial port of entry is in the works, making it a prime choice as a location for big business.

Douglas, Arizona has been interested in bringing in Amazon to establish a distribution center. The factors above make it the perfect community to host such a facility. It is a gateway to Mexico and is filled with many hard working citizens who are ready to get to work. The amount of jobs created by the construction of such a facility will be mutually beneficial. Amazon will get the workforce and support of the greatest border community in the United States of America and the people of Douglas will benefit from the job positions and community growth that the facility will provide.

Douglas’ mayor, The Honorable Robert Uribe has shared the following quote from local citizen Brian A. Treviño: "We must be confident and believe in the community we live in."  Now is the time for us to band together and put this quote into action. Citizens of Douglas, Cochise County, and the state of Arizona will benefit from the introduction of Amazon’s business here in Douglas. We are calling on Amazon and Jeff Bezos to hear our proposal and consider this premier southeastern Arizona community for a new distribution facility. Douglas is open for business.
