Happy New Year from Gov. Brewer

PHOENIX (Tucson News Now) -

"As Arizonans turn the page on 2012, it is an opportunity to reflect upon all we've accomplished together over the last 12 months, and to look forward with optimism to the new year.

"Arizona continues be a leader in our nation's economic recovery. Our jobless rate is now the lowest it has been in four years, and our state budget is balanced. Together, we've made real improvements as we remove the barriers to economic prosperity and opportunity, improve the education delivered in our classrooms and provide for safe neighborhoods and safety-net services for Arizona's most vulnerable.

"Our work is not done. Just as Arizonans are making plans for the new year, I've been making plans to improve our State in the upcoming legislative session. This will be a joint effort together with the Arizona Legislature, a mission guided by the same conservative principles that have served this Nation well since its founding and led our State back from the brink: limited government; free markets and individual liberty.

"It's going to be a great 2013. Be safe."
