STATE TREASURER DOUG DUCEY ENDORSES PHIL LOVAS
PEORIA – State Treasurer Doug Ducey today endorsed State Representative Phil Lovas in his bid to represent the newly formed Legislative District 22. This is Ducey’s first legislative endorsement of the 2012 campaign cycle.
Ducey, who is serving his first-term as treasurer after a successful private sector career as CEO and partner of Cold Stone Creamery and current chairman of iMemories, said Lovas has the business experience needed to help grow Arizona’s economy.
“Phil has worked for over a decade to create jobs in our state,” Ducey said. “Arizona needs people with a business background who understand how to create jobs in this economy. I support Phil, and look forward to working with him to make Arizona the number one place in America to do business.”
In addition to Ducey, Lovas has been endorsed by Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, U.S. Congressman Ben Quayle, Peoria City Council Member Cathy Carlat, Phoenix City Councilman Sal DiCiccio, State Senator Judy Burges and State Representative Jack Harper.
Lovas is a businessman from Peoria. He has over a decade of experience in hotel development throughout the western U.S. He advocates greater economic opportunity in Arizona, cutting the size of government and protecting and promoting conservative values. Lovas and his wife Corinne live in Peoria with their three children.
Once redistricting is completed, Legislative District 4 will become the new Legislative District 22 covering north Peoria, north Glendale, Sun City West and Surprise.
