the arizona we want

The Arizona We Want
Under the leadership of Dr. Lattie Coor, Chairman and CEO of the Center for the Future of Arizona, The Arizona We Want is a citizens' agenda for Arizona's second century-a vision and set of goals that can be used to mobilize people throughout the state and survive transitions in leadership over time. The effort includes the results of the 2009 Gallup Arizona Poll, which captured a realistic and contemporary picture of what people think about life in Arizona communities and what they want for the future. The Center recently completed the 2010 Arizona Civic Health Index, the nation's leading gauge of how Arizonans participate in civic life, how they connect to one another and to their communities. All polling questions and results are available online.
