EAST VALLEY – Former Congressman and candidate for Arizona’s 6th Congressional District Matt Salmon announced today that his campaign has received the endorsements from all three state legislators in Legislative District 20:

State Senator John McComish (R-LD 20)
State Representative Bob Robson (R-LD 20)
State Representative Jeff Dial (R-LD 20) 

State Senator McComish stated, “As a longtime business leader in Arizona, I can speak with certainty that Matt Salmon has the right vision and experience to advance pro-business legislation in Congress that will get our employers hiring once again. Matt understands that growing our local economy and putting more Arizonans back to work begins by enacting federal policies that cut taxes and reduce burdensome regulation on businesses. I’m proud to join Matt Salmon’s team.”

State Representative Robson added, “I have been a longtime supporter of Matt Salmon and I know firsthand that his record is tested and proven to the core. Now more than ever, we need leaders in Washington who have the experience and courage to hit the ground running and make the tough decisions that are necessary.”

State Representative Jeff Dial said, “Congress has a spending problem and we need someone in Washington to hold them accountable. Matt Salmon is the right person for the job. Matt has experience on cutting our government’s wasteful spending, slashing our budget deficits and restoring balanced federal budgets. I’m excited for his return to Congress.”

Former Congressman Matt Salmon stated, “The constituents of Legislative District 20 are fortunate to have these three leaders as their state government representatives, and I am fortunate to have their support for my campaign. I continue to be humbled and honored to receive such strong support among East Valley leaders and I look forward to working with all of them as their representative in Washington.”

Comments

  1. This is probably a good reason to ensure that Salmon does NOT return to Congress.

    BUT… Salmon needs to get his third term in so he can get the Congressional retirement program and healthcare benefits.

    So, watch for a major major press from Salmon, since those benefits are worth MILLIONS if not tens of millions.

  2. Count to six says

    Observe isn’t very observant. Salmon pledged to serve three terms-which he did. At an LD meeting, he disclosed his retirement package is worth a whopping $15k a year.

  3. Nordine Crub says

    Perhaps if the only retirement available for Congressmen was Social Security they wouldn’t be inclined to stay forever.
