Sinema endorses Lujan for Phoenix City Council

On Monday, Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema, D-Arizona, endorsed David Lujan, candidate for Phoenix City Council District 4.

“David is the best choice for Phoenix District 4 and there is no one I would rather have representing me on the City Council,” Sinema said. “As his colleague in the state Legislature, I saw firsthand that David has dedicated his life to serving our community and the most vulnerable among us. I know that David will continue that service on the City Council by making education a top priority, preserving our neighborhoods and helping to spur innovative ideas to prepare Phoenix for the 21st century economy.”
