Nation’s leading government reformer says “Reform does not come easy” 

PHOENIX – In his quest to reform city government and fundamentally change the way business is done at City Hall, Wes Gullett has won the endorsement of the nation’s leading reformer – New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

“I have been working to reform New Jersey. I know that Wes Gullett has a reform plan for Phoenix that will bring important changes to city government to jump start economic growth,” Governor Christie said. “Reform does not come easy. Entrenched interests will fight hard against reform. I hope that you will stand tall for Wes. Cast your vote for him and tell your friends and neighbors that now is the time to make a difference.”

“I am truly honored to have the endorsement of a true reformer like Governor Christie,” Gullett said. “Governor Christie’s straight-talk and unwavering quest to change the status quo in his state is a model for how I would approach governing here in Phoenix. We can’t afford to keep doing things the way we’ve been doing them.”

Gullett and Christie met in Phoenix late last year at a Goldwater Institute event where Christie spoke about his reform agenda in New Jersey. Gullett shared with Christie his reform ideas for Phoenix.

Since that time, Gullett has released comprehensive plans to reform Phoenix city government and save money, including cutting red tape, reforming public pensions and a Seven Point Jobs Plan.
