Katie Hobbs Rallies Tribal Communities
Hobbs emphasizes support for tribal communities, what she intends to do as governor and why this election is so important
PHOENIX – Yesterday, Secretary of State and Democratic nominee for governor Katie Hobbs visited the Gila River Indian Community where she joined Representative Tom O’Halleran as they spoke to voters about the significance of this November’s election.
Hobbs touched on the contributions that tribal communities have made to the state of Arizona and how she plans to show up for them every day as governor. The proposals that Hobbs laid out are part of her larger Collaborative Arizona plan to serve all 22 tribes in the state.
“In our tribal communities, we know that we have real challenges that need fixing. For too long, our leaders have failed to prioritize proactively and respectfully working with tribes to address those challenges,” Hobbs said at the event. “I have a plan to partner with tribes to make sure that we live up to our shared ideals that every person deserves the opportunity to succeed: Better access to economic opportunity, a world class education, a fairer and more accountable justice system, better access to health care, especially for our children, and a healthy environment, along with safe and clean water.”
With 13 days before Election Day, Hobbs is rallying voters across the state and motivating people to get out and vote. Voters’ excitement about Hobbs’ candidacy was on full display at today’s rally and her events around the state.
