“For over 40 years, the Greater Phoenix Chamber Political Action Committee has supported pro-business candidates for state and local offices regardless of political party affiliation,” explained Chamber PAC Chair John Moody. “As the political climate becomes more divisive, having business-friendly lawmakers willing to collaborate to advance policies that will support a prosperous economy in the Greater Phoenix region and throughout the state of Arizona is more important than ever. After a thorough evaluation and deliberation process for the 2022 primary election cycle, we are pleased to endorse candidates who understand the issues impacting the success of businesses and the challenges of our current economic and policy climate.”
“Both the endorsement process and the PAC are critical to our mission of advocating for businesses and economic prosperity in the state of Arizona,” said Todd Sanders, Greater Phoenix Chamber President and CEO. “The PAC Board evaluated many well-qualified candidates and chose to make primary election endorsements of those whose policies most closely aligned with the Chamber’s mission and vision. As the Phoenix economy continues to grow, we are proud to support candidates who understand critical issues affecting businesses today and those who have a clear idea of what it takes to build a stronger economic future for the state of Arizona.”
