Pinal Sheriff Paul Babeu announced that he will endorse Jim Waring in Phoenix City Council District 2 and the re-election of Councilman Bill Gates in District 3. Babeu also announced his opposition to the recall of Councilman Sal DiCiccio of Ahwatukee Foothills.
"Nobody has done more than Sal DiCiccio to shine a spotlight on the practices at City Hall. He has been targeted for favoring a government of, by, and for the people - not of, by, and for the insiders. All Arizonans have a vested interest in keeping him right where he is - asking the tough questions and demanding the public get answers.
"Phoenix is by far the biggest city in Arizona. For our state to work, we desperately need Phoenix to work. I have worked hard to bring transparency and honest government to Pinal County, and wherever good candidates like DiCiccio, Gates and Waring seek to do the same, they will have my support."
