With uncertainty over how government leaders plan to lift restrictions and allow businesses to open, we got analysis on the challenges ahead from 1030 KVOI AM Tipping Point host Zach Yentzer and KJZZ The Show host Steve Goldstein.
“We went from a state legislature looking at a $700 million surplus and now a $1.5 billion deficit almost overnight. It looks terrible but as many leaders have said you have to think about the health of the citizens first. Because if they’re not healthy they won’t be able to spend at your business anyway,” Goldstein said.
“On the recovery front, I think we’re going to have to explore things like public-private partnerships to fund everything from community education to economic rebuild,” Yentzer said. “Infrastructure, education and economy are going to be the things that we’re going to have to locally seed ourselves and we’re going to have to start doing it immediately.”
