PHOENIX (June 22) – The Arizona State Troopers Association today announced their support of candidate David Gowan for Arizona’s First Congressional District.
“As an organization representing Department of Public Safety employees, the Arizona State Troopers Association considers many factors when endorsing a political candidate,” said Jimmy Chavez, president of Arizona State Troopers Association. “A commitment to public safety should be a leading priority for any candidate seeking public office, as well as a willingness to adequately fund public safety.”
“The safety of Arizonans is one of my primary concerns,” said David Gowan. “For many years I have worked closely with our State Troopers, who protect our families and keep them safe. As I run for this Congressional seat, I look forward to the continued work with the Arizona Sate Troopers Association to create a more secure place for Arizonans to live and work.”
