AZ Congresswoman Debbie Lesko Visits Vulcan

Our Mountain West Division team hosted Congresswoman Debbie Lesko (AZ-8) for a tour and employee town hall at the Sun City Plant in Phoenix.
The Congresswoman saw the Vulcan sand and gravel operations process from start to finish and learned how we recycle material. Our conversations included transportation topics and what’s happening in Washington, DC.
A fun part of the day was when the Congresswoman was presented with a "Four Pillars of Safety" coin by the division's newest U.S. citizen, Safety & Health Coordinator Debbie Williams. Debbie is a native of Canada but was sworn in as a U.S. citizen last week.
