Senate Democratic Leader David Schapira, D-Tempe, has announced that he has earned the endorsement of Brigadier Gen. Gregg Maxon. Maxon joins Schapira’s Veterans Council to advise him on the important issues facing America’s veterans, their families and men and women currently serving in uniform.

This endorsement comes after the endorsement of Brigadier Gen. John Adams in February.

“David has been an outstanding advocate for Arizona’s veterans and an effective leader at the state Capitol,” said Maxon. “The nearly 900,000 veterans who are awaiting decisions on their disability claims will find an advocate in David. He understands the issues that affect veterans and has the track record to achieve results. That is exactly the type of leadership Arizona needs in Congress.”

“America’s veterans need a voice in Washington who will fight for what is right,” said David Lucier, an Arizona veterans advocate and member of the Schapira Veterans Council. “David’s commitment to investment in education, job-training programs, high-quality health services and responsible foreign policy make him the best fit for District 9. We know that David will have our back in Washington.”
