(Glendale, AZ) Candidate for Glendale Mayor Jerry Weiers, the top vote getter in the primary election, has been endorsed by Governor Jan Brewer, who turned a $3 billion budget deficit into an $800 million surplus.
Brewer said, "Leadership requires the will to make the tough decisions and the judgment to make the right ones. Jerry Weiers has demonstrated both traits as a legislator who built consensus, worked regionally to benefit his constituents and helped put Arizona's finances back in order. I hope Glendale residents will join me in supporting Jerry Weiers for Mayor."
Weiers stated,"Governor Brewer’s endorsement means a great deal to me on a personal and professional level. She is a battle tested leader who led our state through challenging times. She has been a good friend to the City of Glendale and its residents. I hope to follow her example should I be fortunate enough to lead Glendale.”
Weiers is an award-winning Friend of the Taxpayer who has been endorsed by Glendale Mayor Elaine Scruggs, the Arizona Fraternal Order of Police, The Arizona Police Association, the Glendale Chapter of the Phoenix Firefighters Association, local leaders like Congressman Trent Franks, Supervisor Max Wilson, and a host of West Valley lawmakers and leaders.
Weiers moved to Arizona in 1966. He has represented the West Valley in the State Legislature for nearly eight years. He worked alongside Mayor Scruggs in efforts to bring the F-35 to Luke Air Force Base, solidifying this critical economic engine for Glendale. As a state lawmaker, Weiers has also helped Arizona recover from years of previous over-spending, turning a multi-billion dollar deficit into this year’s nearly $800 Million budget surplus.
