FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

January 15, 2019

(PHOENIX) – The Greater Phoenix Chamber Political Action Committee (PAC) today announced its endorsement in the special election for Council District 5.

After conducting interviews and deliberating the candidates running in the City of Phoenix’s special election for District 5, the Chamber PAC Board has endorsed Councilwoman Vania Guevara.

“The Greater Phoenix Chamber PAC proudly endorses Vania Guevara for Councilwoman,” said PAC Board Chairman, John Moody.  “During her time in her appointed role on the council, Vania has proven to be dedicated to representing her district and open to working with the business community on key issues.”

The Chamber PAC spans over three decades of support for candidates in local and state races who have distinguished themselves as knowledgeable and supportive of issues affecting the success of greater Phoenix area businesses.  Endorsement by the Chamber PAC Board requires a supermajority vote of its membership to ensure that consensus candidates receive the Chamber’s support.

“The Chamber is pleased to endorse Vania Guevara,” said Todd Sanders, President and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Chamber. “Her open door policy has illustrated her willingness to communicate with all stakeholders to develop workable solutions for her district and for Phoenix.”

In order to vote in the March 12 special election, individuals must submit their voter registration by February, 11.

About the Greater Phoenix Chamber Political Action Committee (Chamber PAC)

The Chamber PAC was established in 1978 to help pro-business candidates get elected to state, county, and local offices and ultimately improve the overall business climate in Greater Phoenix. The Chamber first became a Mega PAC in 2003—the first Chamber in Arizona to achieve this elite distinction which allows the PAC to drastically increase its support of pro-business candidates.  To date, the Greater Phoenix Chamber is one of two Chambers in the state to achieve Mega PAC status.
