It’s over 100 pages and it’s a little ponderous to read.  Here’s a snapshot  of the Pima County Audit for your digestion( or indigestion).  A listing of the MTCVB Board will follow soon.  It’s up to them to see if this gets fixed and get rid of the Walker/Vaughan tandem.(at left on their Scottish Golf Vacation with one of their vendors)

 

Here’ s the complete report: http://pima.gov/Administration/MTCVB_audit/bd-mtcvb.audit.report_20110712090644.pdf

Tale of the Tape – Stats on Tourism Growth

The ten-year recent period of 1999-2008 was selected, just before

the precipitous drops that occurred across the state in 2009. Here

are the results.

1.    Arizona’s total travel spending for the period grew 41.4

percent, from $13,071billion to $18,480 billion dollars.

2.    Maricopa County’s travel spending percentage of growth

exceeded that of the state with a 49.7 % increase, from $7,779

billion to an estimated $11,642 billion.

3.    Pima County’s tourism expenditures experienced a

significantly less robust estimated growth rate of only 21.8

percent, from $1,725 billion to $2,101 billion.

 This time period was during the boom days.  Before global economic meltdowns, SB 1070s, etc.  Pima County lost significant market share during the tenure of the Walker/Vaughan.  They were funded anywhere between $6-$10 million per year.  They also get paid $180,000 and $230,000 respectively.  That’s some serious money.  Serious money for bad results.  Time to go, gents.
