Strong southern Arizona crowd cheers Fred DuVal for Gov.

TUCSON -- An enthusiastic and influential crowd cheered Fred DuVal's announcement of his run for Governor this afternoon at Bentley's near the University of Arizona.

"Today, Arizona's promise has been broken," DuVal said. "Investment in Arizona has suffered, education has been cut, growth is stalled, jobs have vanished. Our state leaders have no plan, no clear strategy to build jobs, opportunity and a good quality of life for today, or for tomorrow." DuVal continued passionately, "We have to do better. Together we can set our sights on big goals and move with common purpose: a robust and competitive business climate; a workforce with skills for the new economy; efficient government that is accountable to the people. I believe that we can achieve these goals. That is why I'm announcing my candidacy for Governor. I want to work with you, and work for you, to restore Arizona's promise. When I am Governor, we will move Arizona forward."

I support Fred DuVal and I was pleased to join other elected officials there today in support, including Sen. David Bradley, former Sen. Paula Aboud, former Rep. Tom Chabin, former Rep. Tom Prezelski, former Pima County Supervisor Dan Eckstrom and others.

"Everyone who desires a renewed Arizona should go to his website right now and join us in supporting Fred for Governor," said Phoenix City Councilman Daniel Valenzuela.
