Three Month Tidal Wave of Financial Support Bolsters Chucri for Supervisor
Mesa - Supporters of Maricopa County Supervisor candidate Steve Chucri (R-Mesa) contributed over $63,000 in just three months of fundraising activity, according to the latest public official campaign financial disclosure forms submitted today to Maricopa County election officials. Nearly all the funds remain unspent and will be utilized to inform and activate voters. Early voting begins August 2nd for the primary election that ends August 28th.
"I'm truly humbled by the incredible outpouring of trust that numerous individuals have demonstrated to my campaign so loud and clear,” said Chucri. “They share my commitment to a vital mission, a mission to restore accountability, reduce bureaucracy, and bring a strong conservative voice to our county government – a mission to restore a focus on citizens and taxpayers not petty politics."
Steve Chucri is actively campaigning throughout the supervisorial district, and has already secured the support and endorsements of prominent and conservative Arizona GOP elected officials. Last week the Chucri for Supervisor campaign announced the key endorsement of United States Congressman Trent Franks, following the earlier endorsements of United States Congressman and former Maricopa County Treasurer David Schweikert, as well as Scottsdale Mayor Jim Lane.
Chucri became President & CEO of the Arizona Restaurant Association (ARA) in 2002. Under his leadership and strong work ethic, the restaurant industry in Arizona has enjoyed substantial growth and is a nearly $10 billion industry.
As President and CEO of the ARA, Chucri represents business owners and sees firsthand how the actions of local, state, and federal governments can positively or negatively impact restaurants and other small businesses in Arizona. Although he is not a career politician, Chucri’s experiences as a businessman, husband, and father give him invaluable insight into the needs of his community and ensure that, as County Supervisor, he will always place service to citizens before personal political gain.
