Third major newspaper in Arizona’s First Congressional District to lend endorsement

Jonathan Paton won the endorsement of the Arizona Daily Star this morning, the third major newspaper endorsement Paton has received in the last week.

The Star praised Paton’s history of accessibility and tackling tough problems. The paper also highlighted his work reforming Arizona’s Child Protective Services systems.

“… We admire his record of bringing to light issues others would rather minimize or view as too complex. For example, we share his views that government must be more transparent and accountable. He championed exactly that in the Legislature when the state child-welfare agency failed to protect children from abuse. He stood up for children with no political voice and created purposeful change. Thoughtful leadership always challenges the status quo to produce solutions.”

The Star endorsement follows recent endorsements of Paton by the Arizona Republic and the Casa Grande Dispatch.
