Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild recently announced his endorsement of Jo Holt, Democratic candidate for the AZ State Senate in District 11. Of Holt, Mayor Rothschild said: “Jo Holt is exactly what our state legislature needs. A retired research scientist, Jo knows how to solve problems, stick to a budget and produce results. She is a pragmatist who will represent the people of her district regardless of their political affiliation. ”
The new LD 11 includes the towns of Oro Valley and Marana in Pima County, and the city of Maricopa along with parts of Casa Grande in Pinal County. Jo has been traveling across the district, meeting with citizens that are as unique and diverse as the district itself. Her platform reflects the beliefs of the district: support traditional public education, create jobs, and invest in renewable energy. Jo believes that these goals can only be met by fighting against the influence of special interests, which is why she is proud to be a Clean Elections candidate.
Mayor Rothschild says that he would cast his ballot for Jo if he could. “Jo is the right person to help make the right choices for our state. I wholeheartedly endorse Jo Holt for AZ State Senate.”
