In an open letter to Tucsonans, Vogt writes, “I take this election and our city’s future as an imperative “must win” situation, both for my family’s future and our city’s longevity. I believe the citizens of Tucson will agree.” He continues, “Our city’s future is at stake and the citizens of Tucson cannot afford to have the city continue in decline as we are currently witnessing. The citizens of Tucson deserve to have a knowledgeable, motivated individual seeking to change our city’s course from the sunset of past failures to the dawn of Tucson’s prosperous future.
Vogt moved to Tucson in 2000 after serving in the United States Navy Reserve for 15 years. According to his website, “ He holds two degrees, a Marine Engineering degree earned from United States Merchant Marine Academy and an Electrical Engineering degree from Valparaiso University.”
