Governor Jan Brewer’s campaign receives boost from Mayors of Cities and Towns
throughout the state from Sierra Vista to Payson

PHOENIX –– Mayors from Cities and Towns throughout Arizona joined together today to announce their support for Governor Jan Brewer in her bid for a second term as the Governor of the State of Arizona. Glendale Mayor Elaine Scruggs, Mesa Mayor Scott Smith, and Tucson Mayor Bob Walkup were announced as the campaign co-chairs of “Mayors for Brewer.”
Scruggs, Smith, and Walkup were joined by the Mayors of Buckeye, Chandler, Litchfield Park, Maricopa, Payson, Sierra Vista, Surprise, Wickenburg, Willcox, and Yuma as well as the Vice-Mayors of Scottsdale and Goodyear in supporting Brewer.

Mayor Elaine Scruggs, who represents Brewer’s home town, has been a longtime supporter of the Governor. “Governor Brewer has fought to help the state fix its own financial problems, without balancing the state’s budget on the backs of the cities and towns,” she said.

Mayor Bob Walkup served on Brewer’s Transition Team last year and commended her on her leadership in these difficult times, “Brewer took the helm as Governor a little more than a year ago in the midst of Arizona’s record financial crisis. She pledged to make the tough choices and while serving the people of Arizona – and she has done just that.”

Mayor Scott Smith commended Brewer on her ability to balance fiscally responsible cuts with a desire ensure Arizona’s long-term economic viability. He explained, “Governor Brewer understands that while the state must live within its means, we must make sure we are taking care of the core services that Arizona must provide. She knows that the state must focus on both tax and education reform if we want to create more business opportunities and a highly skilled workforce.”

Brewer announced all of the following endorsements to her campaign:

Mayor Jackie Meck, Buckeye
Mayor Boyd Dunn, Chandler
Mayor Elaine Scruggs, Glendale
Vice Mayor Georgia Lord, Goodyear
Mayor Thomas Schoaf, Litchfield Park
Mayor Anthony Smith, Maricopa
Mayor Scott Smith, Mesa

Vice Mayor Bob Littlefield, Scottsdale
Mayor Bob Strain, Sierra Vista
Mayor Lyn Truitt, Surprise
Mayor Bob Walkup, Tucson
Mayor Kelly Blunt, Wickenburg
Mayor Gerald “Sam” Lindsey, Willcox

“I want to thank these outstanding elected officials for their support,” said Governor Brewer, “I am humbled by their confidence in me, and look forward to working together closely with them as we build a better Arizona.”
