New Jersey Governor Chris Christie endorses Wes Gullett for Phoenix Mayor!


Dear Friends,

Since the beginning of this campaign I’ve been talking about the need to reform city government, laying out specific plans of how to do so, and fighting against the voices of the status quo. It’s what we need to do in Phoenix if we’re ever going to create jobs and jump-start the economy.

That’s why I’m thrilled to announce today that I’ve been endorsed by the nation’s leading reformer: New Jersey Governor Chris Christie!

This is an important and exciting announcement for our campaign.

I had the pleasure of meeting Governor Christie at last year’s Goldwater Institute event, and I shared with him my reform ideas for Phoenix.

It’s safe to say that no one knows the challenges of fighting the business-as-usual crowd or taking on the public-employee unions better than Governor Christie.

“I know that Wes Gullett has a reform plan for Phoenix that will bring important changes to city government to jump start economic growth,” Governor Christie said today. “Reform does not come easy. Entrenched interests will fight hard against reform. I hope that you will stand tall for Wes. Cast your vote for him and tell your friends and neighbors that now is the time to make a difference.”

Governor Christie’s straight-talk and relentless efforts to reform government in his state is exactly the model for what I would do as Mayor of Phoenix. But as he points out, doing so isn’t easy.

And we know that my opponent Greg Stanton and the entrenched interests at City Hall who are supporting his campaign are going to try everything they can to fight our efforts. That is why they continue launching desperate attacks.

But with the support of you, many other business and community leaders, and a reformer like Governor Christie, I know we can succeed.

Thanks for your continued support,


P.S. Reform is never easy and the entrenched interests at City Hall are gearing up to spend thousands of dollars to protect the status quo. I need your help to fight back and do what is right for the entire city. Here are three things you can do to help today:

Wes, tell the readers you asked for the support if labor, and was told no. Let's everyone know what your positions would be if you had been told yes. Would you still be attacking city workers?
