EAST VALLEY – Kirk Adams is proud to announce the endorsement of State Representative Steve Montenegro, Speaker Pro Tempore of the Arizona House of Representatives, in his campaign to represent the East Valley.

“Kirk Adams exemplifies a rising generation of Republican leadership,” Montenegro said. “As Speaker of the House, I had the privilege of working with him and seeing his leadership and dedication to our conservative values. He will be an asset to the new wave of conservative leaders that face the Washington establishment. I know he will work hard each day to look out for Arizona families, not for special interests.”

“Steve Montenegro is a rising star who is fighting everyday at the Capitol to protect Arizona families and the values we hold dear,” Adams said. “It was a privilege to work with him at the Capitol, and I’m honored to have his support in this campaign.”

Adams and Montenegro worked side by side in the Arizona House of Representatives – Adams as Speaker and Montenegro as Speaker Pro Tempore – to protect unborn life, Arizona families, to balance the state budget and help secure the border.

About Steve Montenegro- Steve is a Magna Cum Laude graduate of Arizona State University with a B.S. in Political Science. He also holds an Associate of Arts in Theology from Logos Christian University. Presently, Steve works in the Glendale office of U.S. Congressman Trent Franks.

Steve also serves as an Assistant Pastor/Youth Pastor at the Surprise Apostolic Assembly. He was recently selected as a Rising Star in Governance and was made a Rodel Fellow.

Kirk Adams is a rising star in the Republican Party, and a conservative reformer who shook-up Arizona’s state Capitol and will do the same thing in Congress.

A husband, father and small businessman, after joining the state House in 2006, Adams found himself so frustrated by the unwillingness and inability of Republicans in the Legislature to stand up for their conservative principals that he launched a long-shot campaign to oust the veteran Speaker of the House.

Adams shocked the Republican establishment and political class, winning the Speakership at only 35 years of age.

Adams led the House back in a conservative direction with an aggressive reform agenda, taking on some of the most challenging issues in Arizona history – issues others were afraid to address because of the potential political fallout.

A native Arizonan, Adams and his wife JaNae live in Mesa and have five children.

Arizona House: State Legislators Give Back

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 26, 2011
CONTACT: Paul Boyer

Several state Representatives will be working on Friday, May 27 in downtown Chandler from 8:00am to 2:30pm on a home renovation project with Habitat for Humanity Central Arizona.

Representatives Eddie Farnsworth, Tom Forese, J.D. Mesnard, Steve Montenegro, Terri Proud, Amanda Reeve, David Stevens will all be in attendance to help renovate the foreclosed home.

“Habitat is a wonderful organization that instills the pride of home ownership through the personal responsibility and sweat equity each future homeowner must provide in order to move in,” Representative J.D. Mesnard said. “I’m thrilled about helping this couple renovate their future home and pleased to see the city of Chandler partnering with Habitat to serve our residents through these projects.”

To qualify, future Habitat homeowners must earn 30 to 60 percent of the area median income; take classes on financial fitness and home maintenance since many are first time homeowners. They must work 100 construction hours on a renovated home known as “sweat equity” prior to moving in. They receive a 0 percent interest mortgage paid to Habitat which goes into a fund that allows them to purchase more land along with the “sticks and bricks” to build/renovate even further.

We’ve ruled out a number of potential candidates who we know have not shown any interest but we’re allowing “Other” to be an option in the poll.

Again, the poll will be open one week and repeat voting is blocked in an attempt to make the poll more accurate.
