MESA, Ariz. (October 22) – Maricopa County Supervisor and Chairman Steve Chucri today announced his first major endorsement, Governor Doug Ducey, in his re-election effort.
“I’ve known Steve Chucri for many years, and he is exactly the kind of leader we need at Maricopa County – one who has applied private sector principles and a sharp business acumen to solving county problems and increasing the level of service for residents while also protecting taxpayer dollars,” Governor Ducey said. “As chairman of the Board of Supervisors, he has taken a conservative-minded approach to governing and led with integrity and transparency. Given his record of accomplishments during his first term, I’m proud to endorse Supervisor Steve Chucri for a second one and I look forward to continuing to work with him.”
Chairman Chucri was elected to his first term in 2012 and has served as chairman since January of 2015.
“I’m honored to work alongside Governor Ducey at the county level as he ushers in a new era for Arizona, anchored by commonsense solutions, conservative values and private sector-style service,” Chairman Chucri said. “I was proud to be the first one to publicly endorse Governor Ducey in his campaign last year and I’m honored to have his endorsement first today.”
