Press release from the Mohur Sarah Sidhwa campaign:
Tucon City Councilman Steve Kozachik endorses Mohur Sarah Sidhwa for LD 9 House Seat
TUCSON - Mohur Sarah Sidhwa, Democratic candidate for the House in Legislative District 9, is pleased to announce that she has been endorsed by Republican Tucson City Councilman Steve Kozachik.
"Creating good public policy requires the ability to look at each issue on its own merits, and study the facts surrounding them without locking into a predetermined rigid ideology. Mohur has shown through her professional career exactly that ability. I am proud to support her candidacy because it is my belief that what we need in Phoenix are more legislators who bring her skill set to the table; that is, an analytical mind and a level of intelligence able to sift through competing interests and land on policy that reflects the greater good of the community. She'll do a great job representing us."
