Lesko Leads Letter to Treasury Advocating for Mesa Airlines

WASHINGTON, D.C.—U.S. Congresswoman Debbie Lesko (AZ-08) led the Arizona congressional delegation in a letter to U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin advocating for Arizona-based Mesa Airlines to secure financing through the CARES Act aviation loan program. “It is important that the funds allocated by Congress through the CARES Act are being used to help businesses and their employees,” said Congresswoman Lesko. “It is my hope that our letter will encourage the Department of the Treasury to quickly review and grant Mesa Airlines’ request for these critical funds. As the nation’s 13th largest airline, Mesa Airlines plays an important economic role in the communities they serve. They need this assistance now to continue this service.” Lesko was joined in sending the letter by Representatives Andy Biggs (R-AZ-05), Ruben Gallego (D-AZ-07), Paul Gosar (R-AZ-04), Raul Grijalva (D-AZ-03), Ann Kirkpatrick (D-AZ-02), Tom O’Halleran (D-AZ-01), David Schweikert (R-AZ-06), and Greg Stanton (D-AZ-09).
