March 3, 2016
PHOENIX (March 3) – East Valley leaders from Gilbert and Queen Creek today joined several others in supporting Andy Biggs for Congress. Gilbert Vice Mayor Jared Taylor, Queen Creek Councilwoman Emilena Turley, and Gilbert Councilman Victor Peterson endorsed Andy Biggs for Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District.
“Few people have stood as firm for their conservative principles like Andy Biggs has done for over a decade at the Arizona Legislature,” Gilbert Vice Mayor Jared Taylor said. “Andy has never backed down from a fight he believes in with all his heart, especially if that fight helped uphold existing law or adhere to the Constitution. Andy’s dedication to the people he serves means he will never forget what is in the best interests for Gilbert and all our East Valley communities. He will make an outstanding Congressman and I hope you will support his candidacy.”
“I’ve known Andy Biggs for a number of years, and I am increasingly impressed with his commitment to detail and willingness to work with others to accomplish shared goals,” Queen Creek Councilwoman Emilena Turley said. “Andy is exactly the type of leader we need in Washington, and I am excited to see what he is able to accomplish in the U.S. House of Representatives. I hope all East Valley voters will join me in supporting Andy Biggs.”
“Andy Biggs is a true conservative, but most importantly, he’s a true public servant,” Gilbert Councilman Victor Peterson said. “There’s not one part of Andy that is in the political system for the wrong reasons. He believes in the work he does with all of his heart, and as a result, I’ve seen firsthand how much his constituents respect and appreciate his service. I am confident that Andy will never forget who he represents, and he will be a true friend in Congress for the Gilbert community.”
Their endorsements join the likes of Congressman Matt Salmon, Congressman Trent Franks, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Phoenix Councilman Sal DiCiccio, and Senators Sylvia Allen, Nancy Barto, Judy Burges, Debbie Lesko, Gail Griffin, Steve Yarbrough, David Farnsworth, John Kavanagh, and Steve Smith.
“I can’t thank my East Valley friends enough for their support and for their trust in my candidacy,” Senate President Andy Biggs said. “I have always enjoyed working with these individuals to make the East Valley a better place to work and to live. I look forward to continuing a great working partnership with them as their next Representative to Congress.”
