Arizona Association for Economic Development OnePayson announcement 2020

The town of Payson received statewide recognition for its #OnePayson economic development effort to help businesses and employees during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The town’s economic development efforts during the COVID-19 crisis have been highlighted across the state,” said Trever Fleetham, Payson’s management associate.

The Arizona Association for Economic Development sent out a statewide email recognizing the OnePayson campaign as a way to create a resilient community during its Economic Development Week, May 4 — 8.

“The Town of Payson created a campaign titled #OnePayson to present local awareness, financial resources, and overall community support for businesses in Payson,” wrote AAED in its email.

AAED then made individual posts for #OnePayson on their LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram pages.

“Payson’s effort to support our businesses was highlighted alongside Gilbert, Glendale, Avondale, and Phoenix economic development initiatives related to COVID-19,” wrote Sheila DeSchaaf, acting town manager. “Thank you Mayor Morrissey and Trever Fleetham for your insightfulness that make our efforts impactful!”
