Two House Democrats to relay Arizona needs, values to President Obama







STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – Two House Democrats will meet with President Obama Wednesday to discuss the 2012 Democratic plan that stops the partisan bickering, focuses on creating jobs and draws the line at more cuts to education.

House Democratic Whip Anna Tovar and Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-Phoenix (District 16), will relay Arizona’s needs for jobs and a stronger economy to the President before his speech in Chandler.

“This is a great opportunity to show the President that we’re committed in Arizona to end the partisan infighting and work to get things done,” Tovar said. “We hope the President can do the same in Washington. Middle-class families, Arizona’s economic engine, deserve our focus on good ideas to put people back to work and improve public schools so our kids can compete for the jobs of the future.”

Gallego said he will make sure the President knows what his constituents want to see from Washington.

“We want Washington to produce results, and I believe that can happen when we finally end the partisan bickering and move past the rigid ideologies and Tea Party extremism,” Gallego said. “It’s time to stop all of these divisive distractions and make Arizona stronger for our kids’ future through focusing on jobs.”

Both Tovar and Gallego will be available for interviews by contacting House Democratic Communication Director Sarah Muench at smuench@azleg.gov.
