(PARADISE VALLEY, Ariz.) He’s been in public service for more than 20 years. He’s distinguished himself as someone who closely monitors municipal spending, long before it was fashionable. Phoenix City Councilman Sal DiCiccio is endorsing Paradise Valley Vice Mayor Michael Collins in the town’s mayoral race.

Phoenix and Paradise Valley recently worked on a joint agreement to improve the facilities and parks at Camelback Mountain’s Echo Canyon which is in DiCiccio’ s district.

DiCiccio first served on the Phoenix City Council from 1994 to 1998. He was appointed to the Council in 2009 and was reelected in 2013. Along the way DiCiccio has been an effective advocate for the taxpayer, fighting wasteful spending.

DiCiccio said, “I applaud Paradise Valley’s ability to emerge from the recent recession without massive deficits and debt. It’s a lesson more communities should learn. I endorse Michael and hope our neighbors in Paradise Valley share my opinion. Between Echo Canyon and our Phoenix Fire Department providing service to Paradise Valley, we have important ties.”

Collins is PV’s Vice Mayor. Paradise Valley’s Current Mayor, Scott LeMarr is not seeking reelection after 22 years of impressive service to his community.headshot 1 compressed

Mohave County Sheriff Tom Sheahan, Lake Havasu City Mayor Mark Nexsen Join Leaders from Throughout Arizona Supporting Campaign

Republican candidate for State Treasurer Hugh Hallman has picked up the endorsement of two of the most prominent elected officials in Mohave County.

Sheriff Tom Sheahan and Lake Havasu City Mayor Mark Nexsen have endorsed Hallman’s candidacy for the State Treasurer’s office. The two conservative Republican leaders praised Hallman’s record of fiscal responsibility and his commitment to limited government.

“It’s important to the people of Mohave County that we have strong advocates in statewide office for keeping both state and federal government in check,” Sheahan said. “Hugh Hallman’s experience as Mayor of Tempe and his lifelong commitment to limiting the size and scope of government make him an ideal choice in the State Treasurer’s Office for the priorities of Mohave County residents.”hallman pic

Nexsen said that as a Mayor himself, he knows how important it is to have someone who understands the challenges of running a city in the State Treasurer’s Office.

“We work closely with the State Treasurer’s Office on the funding we need to make sure Lake Havasu City’s government is run effectively,” Nexsen said. “Having someone like Hugh Hallman, a former Mayor who understands the importance of fiscal responsibility, in this office would be a tremendous asset for Arizona residents.”

Kirby began serving on the Paradise Valley Town Council in 2008 and was part of the team that led the Town out of its financial crisis.

In 2010, Kirby was elected to a seat on the Scottsdale School Board. On April 25th 2014, Kirby resigned from the Paradise Valley Council so that she can focus on the critical needs of the Scottsdale Unified School District.

Kirby said, “While there are still challenges facing any community, I feel Paradise Valley has emerged from several crises thanks to the hard work of my friends and former colleagues on the Paradise Valley Town Council. Vice Mayor Michael Collins is my choice to lead the Town Council; to keep our community moving in the right direction. My decision to focus on the Scottsdale School District was made easier knowing that someone of Michael's caliber is poised to lead Paradise Valley, and I sincerely hope the voters agree.”headshot 1 compressed

Paradise Valley’s current Mayor, Scott LeMarr is not seeking reelection. Collins said, “Losing such talented individuals as Mayor LeMarr and Councilmember Kirby won’t be easy. I can only hope to provide the necessary leadership as two valued members of Town Hall move on.”
