PHOENIX—Today, Former Avondale Mayor and Maricopa County Supervisor Marie Lopez Rogers endorsed Secretary Hobbs for Governor.
“Secretary Hobbs has been a champion for Arizonans her entire career,” said former Avondale Mayor, Maricopa County Supervisor, and president of the National League of Cities Marie Lopez Rogers. “As a fellow social worker, I know that Katie Hobbs will always fight for those who have been overlooked or left behind. As governor, I know she will work with local leaders across the state so that all of our communities can thrive.”
Before serving as a Maricopa County Supervisor, Marie Lopez Rogers served as mayor of Avondale and sat on the Avondale City Council for a decade.
