Five Mayors All Support Steve Chucri for County Supervisor
Maricopa County - The Steve Chucri campaign is proud to announce the endorsements of five mayors: Mesa's Scott Smith, Gilbert's John Lewis, Chandler's Jay Tibshraeny, Paradise Valley's Scott LeMarr and Scottsdale's Jim Lane.
"I am confident that Steve will bring a fresh perspective to county government that is needed now more than ever before," stated Smith.
"I have had the opportunity to learn a lot about Steve: his values, perspectives and experiences that have made him who he is," said Lewis. "All of these insights helped me recognize that Steve represents all the statesman-like qualities voters want in their elected officials."
"Steve will bring transparency, openness and communication between the public and government," stated Tibshraeny. "Steve will be a very strong voice for economic development for the County." "We need more tireless advocates such as Steve getting involved in our local governments," said LeMarr. "Steve has been an effective community leader and will do a great job at taking his public service to a whole new level. I wholeheartedly endorse his candidacy."
These four mayors join Scottsdale Mayor Jim Lane, who previously endorsed Chucri, saying, "Steve Chucri is the right choice to move Maricopa County forward with transparent, accountable and conservative leadership. He will end the senseless bickering and lawsuits and instead re-focus the board on creating a climate for winning new private sector jobs."
These mayors join a long list of endorsements for Chucri, including Congressman David Schweikert, Congressman Ben Quayle, Congressman Jeff Flake, Congressman Trent Franks, Congressman Paul Gosar, Senate President Steve Pierce and County Supervisor Andy Kunasek.
Chucri has served as the President & CEO of the Arizona Restaurant Association (ARA) since 2002. Under his leadership and tireless work ethic, the ARA and restaurant industry in Arizona has enjoyed a substantial growth in sales in what will amount to a nine billion dollar industry in Arizona this year alone.
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. Chucri's experiences as a businessman, husband and father have given him invaluable insight into the needs of his community and ensure that, as county supervisor, he will always put people before politics.
