As a public servant, small businesses have been a priority of mine. Some of my proudest accomplishments are reducing the regulations and fees they had to shoulder. They are the backbone of our economy, representing over half of the U.S. workforce. That is why it is with great pride I announce the following business leaders who are supporting my campaign for Secretary of State.
“In recent decades, Arizona’s Governor has not finished his or her term for different reasons. Our Secretary of State is next in line of succession since Arizona does not have a Lieutenant Governor. It is important for the business community to pay close attention to this important race this year and support a strong candidate.
Michele Reagan served in the Arizona Senate and House of Representatives with great distinction. She has been a tireless leader and supporter of the business community, education, economic development and, as importantly, stood strong in the face of extreme agendas. No one else in the race has her proven track record.”
– Michael Bidwill, President Arizona Cardinals
“Arizona needs a strong Secretary of State representing businessand elections, and Michele is the right person for the job. As a member of the Legislative Commerce Committee, and as Chairwoman of the Senate Elections Committee, Michele has the necessary experience and is ready to stand for Arizona’s voters and businesses.”
– Don Smith, President and CEO Copper Point Mutual, formerly SCF Arizona
“I had the pleasure of meeting with Michele Reagan as she stopped by my business to discuss her candidacy for Secretary of State. What I was most impressed about Michele is she listened to my thoughts on business as it relates to politics here in AZ. We talked small business to big business including her background operating a small business. Simply put she got me excited about what could be possible with leadership that understands from having ‘been there’! I fully support Michele in her run for Secretary of State.”
– Tom Hatten, President/Founder Mountainside Fitness
“In meeting with Senator Reagan I found a lawmaker who is focused on business and not partisan gridlock. Her experience as a former small business owner and legislator uniquely qualifies her for the Secretary of State position. Arizona needs more leaders like Michele Reagan.”
– Matt Mandel, Vice President of SunFed
