The most important
endorsement…is yours.

I announced that I’d be a candidate for governor nearly a year after the other Democrats in the race starting running because I didn’t hear the issues we care about being talked about. By that time, most elected officials and organizations that endorse candidates had already picked a side. That’s ok. The only endorsement that really matters is yours. But I am very proud to have the support of a diverse and growing number of community, business and elected leaders – including members of my campaign committee, who are sharing their expertise, experience and advice with me as I work to become your next governor.

“I joined the Board of the YWCA in 2002 because I believed in – and had benefited from – its programs to develop leadership in women. The recession of 2008 was very hard on the YW, as it was on many nonprofits, and we had to make a lot of difficult decisions, including cutting programs and laying off staff. When our long-time executive director retired, we really didn’t know if the organization would survive. Then we met Kelly Fryer. We interviewed several accomplished nonprofit leaders but Kelly was the only one who brought new ideas about how we could generate revenue, pay off debt and get back on solid financial ground. She made us see the world differently by introducing us to social enterprise – we started a culinary program, positioned our building as a community center, and turned the House of Neighborly Service in South Tucson into a thriving neighborhood resource. Today, the YWCA is a model of good nonprofit management. We celebrated our 100th birthday by raising $1.5 million to support women entrepreneurs and to establish an advocacy center in Arizona. Looking back, I know that if we had not hired Kelly, we would have kept following the same fundraising formula, and the YWCA would likely be out of business. After seeing what Kelly Fryer has done to propel the YWCA forward, I can’t wait to see what she will do for Arizona.” – Cheryl House, YWCA Board of Directors, 2002-2017

“Kelly has a progressive vision for Arizona and the experience and toughness, not only to win this campaign, but to lead this state. I’m proud to stand with and support her race for governor.” – U.S. Congressman Raul Grijalva, long-time champion of families, working people and progressive values
