Visit Tucson Responds to City's Bad Rep on Some National Lists

One Delaware-based site says the city ranks among the 50 worst for quality of life.

Arizona 360 asked Visit Tucson President and CEO Brent DeRaad how his organization gets past the negative portrayal Tucson receives in these articles to promote the city's other offerings.
