Mesa, Ariz. – Today, the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the state’s largest trade and business organization, announced their endorsement of Bob Worsley, Mesa businessman, SkyMall founder, 1999 AZ Entrepreneur of the Year, and Republican candidate for the open state senate seat in District 25.
The Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry serves as the collective voice for Arizona businesses at the State Legislature. Their mission statement states that they are “committed to advancing Arizona’s competitive position in the global economy by advocating free-market policies that stimulate economic growth and prosperity for all Arizonans.”
In their official announcement, the Chamber remarked: “Because of your enthusiasm and genuine concern for the business community, we at the Arizona Chamber recognize your potential to be a strong pro-business advocate at the State Legislature.”
The Chamber continued: “We are excited to endorse a candidate that shares our mission of advancing Arizona’s competitive position in the global economy by advocating free-market policies that stimulate economic growth and prosperity for all Arizonans.”
Bob Worsley added: “I am honored to receive the endorsement of the state’s leading business advocate for small, medium, and large employers. As a business owner who has created over 1,000 jobs in Arizona, I share common goals and the same guiding principles of the Chamber. The State of Arizona is in dire need of a reputation overhaul in order to elevate our chances to win business relocations and expansions. The Legislature needs to take the lead and pass sensible laws that decrease regulatory burdens, support diversification and development of our economy, and promote a tax policy that is globally competitive. If I am elected by the voters of Mesa, I pledge to elevate my legislative priorities and work on the issues that matter most to taxpayers: jobs and the economy.”
