Phoenix, AZ—Today, the Farley Campaign announces a key endorsement from Tempe Councilmember Lauren Kuby.

“I’m proud to endorse Steve Farley as the next Democratic nominee for Governor of Arizona because of his long record of fighting for social, economic, and environmental justice in our state,” said Councilmember Lauren Kuby.

“For decades, Steve has amplified the voices of everyday Arizonans by working to rid our elections of dark-money influence and empowering communities to advocate for local worker and environmental protections. Through our work together in Tempe, I have known Steve to be a champion of cities as agents of change. When Steve is our Governor, he will see cities as allies and ensure that the entire state values our vital economic and cultural contributions,” she concluded.

Kuby joins five other endorsers since March 19th, the International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers, Coconino County Treasurer Sarah Benatar, Yuma County Treasurer Angela Pancrazi Moreno, City of Maricopa Councilmember Henry Wade, and Former Pinal County Supervisor David Snider.  Other key endorsements Farley has received include Former U.S. Senator Dennis DeConcini, Former Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick, Former Congressman Ron Barber, Former Congressman Harry Mitchell, the American Federation of Teachers, and many more.

Kuby is a 29-year resident of Tempe and long-time community leader who advocates for vulnerable populations, worker protections, and climate-change action. As a Tempe Councilmember, she has led efforts for equal pay, environmental protection, earned sick days, government transparency, and campaign-finance reform. She champions cities as hubs of innovation in Arizona and defends local democracy at every turn.
