Helping businesses create jobs has been a priority of mine since I originally took office. That’s why I have fought for reducing burdensome regulations, lowering taxes so businesses can reinvest and getting government out of the way of private enterprise.
I believe every Arizonan has a purpose and every Arizonan should have the opportunity to find rewarding employment. This philosophy has galvanized the support of the business community behind my campaign. I am being supported by the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, National Federation of Independent Business, AZ Association of REALTORS and countless business leaders. Here are what a few of them are saying about my candidacy:
“In recent decades, Arizona’s Governor has not finished his or her term for different reasons. Our Secretary of State is next in line of succession since Arizona does not have a Lieutenant Governor. It is important for the business community to pay close attention to this important race this year and support a strong candidate.
Michele Reagan served in the Arizona Senate and House of Representatives with great distinction. She has been a tireless leader and supporter of the business community, education, economic development and, as importantly, stood strong in the face of extreme agendas. No one else in the race has her proven track record.”
– Michael Bidwill, President Arizona Cardinals
“Arizona needs a strong Secretary of State representing businessand elections, and Michele is the right person for the job. As a member of the Legislative Commerce Committee, and as Chairwoman of the Senate Elections Committee, Michele has the necessary experience and is ready to stand for Arizona’s voters and businesses.”
– Don Smith, President and CEO Copper Point Mutual,
formerly SCF Arizona
“I have known Michele Reagan for years and she has constantly put the needs of small businesses first. As a legislator, she worked to keep government out of my business and helped to lower taxes. As a former small business owner, she understands the struggle that we go through to survive and thrive. She is by far the most qualified candidate for this position.”
– Margaret Dunn, Owner/Operator of Dunn Transportation
“In meeting with Senator Reagan I found a lawmaker who is focused on business and not partisan gridlock. Her experience as a former small business owner and legislator uniquely qualifies her for the Secretary of State position. Arizona needs more leaders like Michele Reagan.”
– Matt Mandel, Vice President of SunFed
“The Secretary of State in Arizona has a vast role serving the full citizenry and Michele has demonstrated she has the skills necessary to perform that task admirably. Equally as important however is the fact that in Arizona our Secretary of State can be, and has been, tasked by unforeseen events to step up to become our Governor. Michele’s legislative resume makes her uniquely qualified to fulfill that obligation should that call ever come. I heartily endorse Michele Reagan for election as our next Secretary of State.”
