Another Canyon Community Mayor Endorses Speaker Andy Tobin for Congress
Community was impacted by Grand Canyon closure, calls Tobin the proven performer we need in Congress
Energy and enthusiasm for Andy Tobin’s congressional run continues to build with Page Mayor Bill Diak — another elected official whose community was negatively impacted by the Grand Canyon closure — throwing his support behind Tobin.
Mayor Diak’s endorsement follows one earlier this month from Williams Mayor John Moore. Both communities were deeply affected by the Grand Canyon closure. Mayor Diak’s endorsement comes at the end of a week which also saw the announcement of Tobin’s campaign finance committee, a powerhouse of Arizona conservative community and business leaders who are dedicated to the fight against Washington and ObamaCare.
“Arizonans need a good pair of ears and a voice in Congress,” said Page Mayor Bill Diak. “We need someone who knows and understands the issues affecting rural Arizona. Andy Tobin has been exactly that in the Arizona Legislature. He listens to rural Arizona and knows how to speak for rural Arizona. Andy is the proven performer we need in Congress. I know he will take his record and values to Congress, and that is why I am endorsing Andy Tobin for United States Congress.”
“During the government shutdown and the Grand Canyon closure, I traveled to the Grand Canyon and its surrounding communities to understand impacts of the closure first-hand,” said Tobin. “Mayors like Bill Diak are still trying to figure out how they will rebuild their tourism industries. While Ann Kirkpatrick voted to keep the canyon closed, people like Mayor Diak were fighting for their community’s economic survival. As I travel the district to meet voters, it is becoming clearer with every mile that Arizonans are fed up with Washington.”
