Flake for Senate release:

City Leaders Throughout Arizona Endorse Jeff Flake for U.S. Senate

PHOENIX – A bipartisan group of municipal leaders from communities around Arizona has declared their support for Jeff Flake to serve in the United States Senate. These leaders support Jeff Flake for his record of principled fiscal leadership, knowledge of Arizona issues and commitment to continue the work that Senator Kyl has done on these issues in Washington.
Jim Lane, Mayor, City of Scottsdale: “Throughout his time in Congress, Jeff Flake has been a positive and productive voice for the East Valley. Jeff understands how to be an effective advocate for Arizona without losing sight of the fact that federal dollars aren’t free, and a balanced national budget is necessary for our local communities to thrive in the long term. It’s been a privilege to get to know Jeff personally over the years. I look forward to working with him to ensure a bright future for our country, for Arizona, and for Scottsdale.”

John Salem, Mayor, City of Kingman: “The federal government’s interference on the local level is on the rise. Jeff Flake has demonstrated that he is a leader who understands and respects the need for local control. I wish that more leaders in Congress did. I support Jeff Flake for Senate because I know we can trust him to do the right thing for Arizona and the nation.”

Tait Elkie, Councilmember, Town of Fountain Hills: “Jeff Flake has been a fiscal hawk and has championed for many years the elimination of earmarks and irresponsible spending. He has done much to change the spending culture and behavior of Congress, and I am confident that Jeff will have the same impact in the Senate.”
