Maricopa County Supervisor Don Stapley Endorses Laura Knaperek for Congress
“Laura Knaperek is the leader we need in Washington”

Tempe, Ariz – Maricopa County Supervisor Don Stapley today announced his endorsement of Laura Knaperek for Congress in Arizona’s 5th Congressional District.

Stapley is currently serving in his fourth term as the supervisor from Maricopa County District 2, which encompasses parts of the east valley cities of Gilbert, Mesa, Paradise Valley, Scottsdale and Fountain Hills.

“As a supervisor from one of the largest counties in the country, I know that we need strong leadership in Washington to guide an effective working relationship between the federal government and state, county, and local governments,” Stapley said.  “After looking at all the candidates in the race for Congressional District 5, I believe that Laura Knaperek is the leader we need in Washington.”

Knaperek said she was grateful for the support of Supervisor Stapley.

“The Stapley name is synonymous with Arizona pride, and it is an honor to count Don as a member of our team,” Knaperek said.  “Having a community stalwart like Don on board- someone who has consistently been re-elected by Maricopa County voters- shows the importance of my 10-year trusted track record with community leaders and voters.”

    Well, there goes my vote to someone else.

    Talk about the kiss of death. Don Stapley is no recommendation. Not the way he has spent county money for nonsense. Not the way he has carried on a personal vendetta against another elected official. And, not the way he seems to hate kids.

    No, if Stapley endorses Laura, then I’m voting for Mark Anderson. Stapley has not earned the influence of an endorsement. This certainly displays Laura’s fear and position. She has already lost.
