Christian Price, Mayor of Maricopa stated, “As the former President of the League of Arizona Cities and Towns, I have been able to see firsthand the success our communities can have when they can work together to strengthen our state and grow our economy. Bridget Binsbacher understands this and has a proven track record of collaboration that benefits not only Peoria, but the entire region and state. I strongly believe that good working relationships are critically important to regional cooperation and directly influence the quality of life of our citizens through an enhanced economic development climate. Bridget Binsbacher is committed to building strong relationships and I am proud to give her my support.”
Binsbacher is the only candidate with experience working with elected officials on critical regional topics such as water, transportation, and education. Her work on the Arizona Municipal Water Users Association and commitment to protecting Peoria’s water future helped earn her the endorsement of West and Southeast REALTORS® of the Valley's (WeSERV). In addition, she is backed by leaders of Avondale, Buckeye, Goodyear, Litchfield Park, Tolleson, Wickenburg, and Youngtown as well as the current and two previous mayors of Peoria.

Like them, I recognize that when the state, region, or community succeed, we all succeed. I look forward to competing against them to secure the most desirable business, residential, and entertainment opportunities. At the same time, I also look forward to collaborating with them on critical issues that impact all of us – especially water and economic development.”
