"The candidates we've endorsed all share a commitment to making Arizona as economically competitive as possible"
Today, Senator Kimberly Yee announced that she has been endorsed by the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The Arizona Chamber has been a leading advocate for pro-business principles since 1974.
"We believe we have endorsed a slate of candidates that shares our mission for fostering an environment that encourages job growth," Chamber Vice President of Government Relations and Communications Garrick Taylor said. "Whether they're a Republican or a Democrat, the candidates we've endorsed all share a commitment to making Arizona as economically competitive as possible, and we look forward to working with them at the Legislature."
Yee said, "I come from a family line of business owners, so I was honored to receive the endorsement of the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Throughout my time at the Arizona Legislature, I have been a consistent friend of the business community and have sponsored a number of the Chamber's bills to advance free-market principles and to protect businesses by promoting tort reform. I will continue to do my part to help facilitate job growth in Arizona and in my district."
Kimberly Yee is a state senator from Legislative District 20 and serves as the Chairwoman of the Senate Education Committee. Before serving in the Senate, she served in the Arizona House of Representatives where she was named "Legislator of the Year" by the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Kimberly Yee was born and raised in the district, which gives her a unique perspective at the State Legislature. As a wife, mother and small business owner, she is a strong advocate for creating more jobs, improving education, keeping our neighborhoods safe and preserving family values. In addition to the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Senator Yee has been endorsed by former U.S. Senator Jon Kyl, U.S. Congressman Trent Franks, Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, former U.S. Congressman John Shadegg and national radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt.
