Arizona State House Candidate Warren Petersen Set’s the Fundraising Bar High

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 12, 2012
CONTACT: Lalani Hunsaker

East Valley – Arizona State House Candidate and political newcomer Warren Petersen’s campaign is reporting that his committee has raised over $10,883.12 in individual contributions to date. That amount is more than twice what any other candidate from District 22 was able to raise during the entire 2010 election cycle.

“This is exciting because individual contributions represent the amount of support that the citizens have for a candidate” Petersen said in a statement. “I have been touched by the generosity of all who have contributed especially when you consider the challenging economic times that we are living in”. 

As a businessman, father, and community member; Warren understands how important it is for citizens to get involved with government. Warren was raised in a family built on hard work, faith, and service in their community. These traits have molded him into the person that he is today. It is because of this upbringing, coupled with his strong business background and fiscal discipline that he and his wife Michelle felt compelled to run for a seat in the Arizona House of Representatives.

    I hope Mr. Petersen is not hoping for a spot on the Budget Committee if elected. Steve Urie raised more than $33,000 for his 2010 race in LD22, so how is less than $11,000 “more than twice what any other candidate from District 22 was able to raise during the entire 2010 election cycle.”? Paul Howell, Eddie Farnsworth and Laurin Hendrix each raised in the neighborhood of $25,000, so the same question applies.

      I’m not sure participating (Howell, Farnsworth & Hendrix) in Clean Elections constitutes “each [raising] in the neighborhood of $25,000.”

      Great job Warren! That is an impressive figure.

    • Individual Contributions for 2010 cycle:
      Urie: $3775
      Farnsworth: $3220
      Hendrix: $2055
      Howell: $1500
      The difference was raised through clean elections, personal, family or PAC contributions.

    The irony in the title of this article is funny. He “set’s the bar high.” That would be “sets” folks. No apostrophe.

  3. Yeah, the best mistakes are the ones in either the title or the first sentence. What does it mean he “has raised over $10,883.12.”

    Did he raise $10,883.13?

    And he did not raise that “to date” he raised it as of 12-31-2011. The release is dated Jan 12.

    At least they got the “newcomer” title right.

    Wait, more: “…he and his wife Michelle felt compelled to run for a seat in the Arizona House of Representatives.”

    So both are running, and for one seat?

    Wilson appears to be mocking Warren and his wife Michelle for both running for a seat in the Arizona House of Representatives. I like the idea of both of them running. If elected they could carpool and save on gas. However, I’ve always thought it was a stupid idea to have multiple-member districts. I know in my district, who needs John Kavenaugh lite when you already have John !

    • I was mocking his grammar because it’s so horrendous as to be misleading.

      The purpose of the multi member district is to have a house size larger than the senate. Probably we could split the 30 districts into 60, and have each senator represent two districts and house members one each. Not much different would happen at the capitol, except it gives a termed-out senator only one choice of a district to run in if he wants to switch to the house.

    • It is very clear to me that he is the only one running. Wilson appears mentally challenged and may not be competent enough to vote.

    I used to say who needs Russell Pearce Lite and Russell Pearce Super Lite when we already have Russell Pearce but I can’t say that any more thanks to CQ and the EAst Valkey Tea Party schlubs.
