THE SMALL BUSINESS ALLIANCE IS PROUD TO BE PASSIONATE ADVOCATES FOR A PROFITABLE SMALL BUSINESS COMMUNITY.
Gilbert, Arizona (June 28, 2012)…The Small Business Alliance announces its endorsements for Gilbert Mayor and Town Council.
There is a fantastic slate of candidates running for elected office in Gilbert. The Small Business Alliance with more than 600 members has taken a close look at them. Their local election committee comprised of local small business owners put the candidates for selected races through an intense endorsement process. After much study and deliberation, the committee announces the following endorsed candidates:
The SBA endorses:
For Gilbert Mayor:
Mayor John Lewis is the ultimate ambassador of the Town of Gilbert. He is a thoughtful man who respects every person’s position and always leads through collaborative efforts. The Alliance is looking forward to working with Mayor Lewis for another four years!
For Gilbert Town Council:
Jenn Daniels is incredibly competent and brings a tireless work ethic to the Council. Throughout her first term, she has time and again proven herself to be a strong advocate for small businesses, and she always applies her own sensible approach to solving problems.
Jared Taylor brings a tenacious desire coupled with specific actionable ideas to improve the Town of Gilbert. Jared is committed to regular communication with the Alliance and its members. We believe his quiet fortitude will be a great addition to the Town Council.
The candidates endorsed by the Small Business Alliance are committed to fostering the best small business environment possible and exhibit their own unique skills and strengths. Candidates participated in a process that included a written biography, written questionnaire, videotaped in person interview with the panel, and a candidate forum where the candidates shared their platforms with members of the Small Business Alliance and the community. The members and public also weighed in on the process through their participation in a straw poll vote. The member straw poll vote corroborated the committee’s decision
Answers to the questionnaires and videos of the candidate’s interviews are currently being uploaded to the Small Business Alliance website: www.evsba.com and the public is encouraged to look there on the “Statesmen’s Tour” page for information on the candidates running for office by clicking their names.
