PHOENIX (May 23) -- Yavapai County Supervisor A.G. "Chip" Davis, accompanied by his wife Karen and campaign manager Jim Holst, today filed his nominating petitions for the Arizona House of Representatives, Legislative District 1. Assisting him with his filing was Janine Petty, the Deputy State Election Director for the Arizona Secretary of State and the former registrar of voters for Yavapai County. Davis, his wife, and countless volunteers collected 2,195 signatures, which is 300% over the minimum number of signatures needed to qualify for the ballot. Davis is the first person running for LD 1 House to qualify for the ballot. His campaign team will continue to collect signatures until June 1, 2016, the last day that petitions may be filed with the Arizona Secretary of State.
Davis, a Republican, said “I've met so many wonderful people through the petition signing process and am looking forward to a robust campaign and to serving the people of Legislative District 1. I am very thankful for the many volunteers who have given so generously of their time to circulate petitions on my behalf."
