Sonora Mayor Bill Canning is excited over the upcoming Amgen Tour in Sonora.
Canning was Thursday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
Sonora was chosen as the start city for a leg of the Amgen bicycle racing tour on May 16th, 2012.
“I hear it from several people and business owners, how happy they are that Sonora was chosen to host this,” Canning said. “We’re going to have international exposure on television. And we could expect anywhere from 10,000 to 25,000 people visiting the county because of this.”
“I’ve talked with the Vice-Mayor of Nevada City and he said that the exposure, the returning visitors and the economic impact has been phenomenal.”
Mayor Canning is working closely with the Tuolumne County Visitors Bureau to properly market this exclusive event.
Volunteers are needed. If you are interested in volunteering call (209) 533-4420.
The “Newsmaker of the Day” is heard each weekday morning on AM 1450 KVML at 6:47, 7:47 and 8:47am.
