Maricopa County, District 2 Deserves Better

Michelle Ugenti-Rita, former State Senator, releases the following statement:

September 19, 2023 – Today, I am announcing my candidacy for the office of County Supervisor, District 2, Maricopa County Board of Supervisors. The voters of District 2 have been deeply disappointed by the actions of appointed Supervisor Thomas Galvin. Whether it is defending botched elections, fiscal mismanagement (including support for the Prop 400 transportation tax increase) or abdicating his responsibility to the residents in Rio Verde Foothills when they desperately needed a solution for their water problem.

For too long, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has lacked transparency, flown under the radar without accountability and been beholden to entrenched bureaucrats and special interests. It is time to call them what they really are, RINOs, and expose the county cartel that has been facilitating and perpetuating a liberal woke agenda. The district deserves better.

“District 2 is a Republican district and the voters want and deserve a Supervisor who reflects those conservative principles. They are tired of being sold out time and time again when politicians like Galvin who claim to be conservative in order to win their vote, then turn around and support, bloated budgets, tax increases and woke gender politics that only succeed in growing government. This stands in stark contrast to my unmatched 12 year record of successfully delivering conservative results to the voters.”

I am honored to have the continued support and endorsement of Congressman David Schweikert (R-D1) who said “Michelle has a stellar and proven record of principled, conservative leadership. I’m confident that she will make an excellent county supervisor. I’m proud to give her my full endorsement and I encourage my fellow Republicans to join me in voting for her in next year’s Republican primary.”

In addition to Congressman Schweikert, Michelle is endorsed by Senator John Kavanagh (LD-3), Representative Joseph Chaplik (LD-3), Representative Barbara Parker (LD-10), Representative Jacqueline Parker (LD-15) Senator Wendy Rogers (LD-7) and the Honorable Kelly Townsend (Former Representative LD-16).
