Broad Coalition of Support for Peggy Neely

Neely for Mayor continues to build governing coalition

PHOENIX – Since her announcement, Peggy Neely has put together a broad coalition of endorsements including Governor Jan Brewer, Former Mayor Skip Rimsza, Councilmember Michael Johnson, Councilmember Sal DiCiccio, Maricopa County Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox, Former US Secretary of Transportation Mary Peters, Mayors from across the Valley, and many others.

These endorsements represent a wide spectrum of support and including some who haven’t always seen eye to eye. However, one thing they all agree on is Peggy Neely – which reiterates her ability to bring all sides together to support a common cause.

Neely’s endorsements include:

• Governor Jan Brewer

• Former Mayor Skip Rimsza

• Buckeye Mayor Jackie Meck

• Carefree Mayor David Schwan

• Cave Creek Mayor Vince Francia

• North Richland Hills, Texas Mayor Oscar Trevino

• Surprise Mayor Lyn Truitt

• Councilmember Michael Johnson

• Councilmember Sal DiCiccio

• Maricopa County Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox

• Former US Secretary of Transportation Mary Peters

• Former Arizona Republican Party Chairman Randy Pullen

Support for Neely ranges from her support of true reform to her commitment to the community. Many focused on her track record of supporting quality jobs and creating an environment to attract employers.

“I have admired Peggy Neely’s record of job creation and her devotion to government reform,” stated Governor Brewer. “With the passage of Arizona’s economic competitiveness package and the creation of the Arizona Commerce Authority, Arizona needs experienced leaders who are dedicated to public-private partnerships and job creation. Peggy fits that bill and has my full support. I look forward to working with her on Arizona’s comeback.”

“From the beginning Peggy and I have worked closely together to bring jobs and business to the City,” said Councilmember Michael Johnson, “She is a dedicated public servant who puts the residents of Phoenix first every day.”

“I am proud of my track record of bringing people together to build consensus and find solutions,” said Neely, “Phoenix has been a well-run city and a place we can all be proud of, but it is time to do more. I am looking forward to working with them to build a coalition dedicated to improving our city.”
