2018 General Election Endorsements

The Tucson Metro Chamber is YOUR advocate when it comes to ensuring we have a continually improving business climate in Southern Arizona. We champion issues that impact businesses of all sizes. Our 2018-2019 core policy focus areas include: infrastructure and the ability to build and fund necessary assets; workforce development to improve and grow our current and future workers; and creating a business climate that is sustainable and promotes a prosperous community. We strongly believe in electing officials that are collaborative partners who support overall business advocacy needs. In an effort to elect officials who will help achieve those organization policy goals, the Tucson Metro Chamber is endorsing the following candidates:

  • Doug Ducey (R)


  • Kimberly Yee (R)

The Chamber extended interview invitations to all candidates that were on the August primary ballot, holding over fifty 20-minute interviews. A special thanks to our members who serve on the Candidate Evaluation Committee for the tremendous time commitment and effort they put into the interview process. The Candidate Evaluation Committee has even representation from registered Democrats, Republicans, and Independents — just like our Chamber community.

We hope that you will give strong consideration to the candidates when you and your employees cast their ballots. As always, should you have any questions, please give us a call at (520) 792-1212.
