Business leaders mull change in Tucson's nickname

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Leaders of the Tucson Metro Chamber have proposed to its members changing the city's nickname from "Old Pueblo" to a name that reflects the city's forward-thinking mindset.

The Arizona Daily Star reported that the chamber has no immediate plans to create a new slogan, but floated the idea to see if business and tourism officials agreed it is time for a change.

Chamber's board members Kurt Wadlington and Mike Varney said a new mindset toward prosperity is overdue.

In an interview, Varney told the Daily Star that it was a chamber member who suggested that Tucson had grown beyond its nickname.

Varney said the chamber embraced the history and culture of Tucson, but the city can't have an "Old Pueblo" mindset in a 21st-century economy.
