In an email sent to his supporters today, Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton has announced his candidacy for congress. The email states:

I want you to be the first to know: Today I filed to run for Congress representing Arizona’s ninth district. 

It’s been the honor of my life to serve as Mayor of Phoenix. But you and I know that we need representatives in Washington who will fight for our community and protect our most vulnerable. 

Arizonans deserve better than what we are getting from this Congress, and there has never been a more consequential time in the fight to protect the middle class. In Congress, I’ll do exactly what we’ve done in Phoenix: deliver real results that improve people’s lives. 

Watch my brief video — and then will you make a donation to help me launch this campaign?

I know this race is going to be tough.

Republicans are desperate to win this seat and they’ll spend millions to get it.  

I’d be honored to have you as a day one supporter. I hope you’ll donate whatever you can to help us get started.

Thank you for your consistent support for me as Mayor. I hope to serve you just as well in Congress. 

Thanks,

Greg

According to the City of Phoenix website, Mayor Stanton took office in 2012. It goes on to say, “By investing in innovation and the biosciences, lifting up local small business, and boosting trade with Mexico, Stanton is leading the way to create an innovation-based, export-driven economy built to last. 

Stanton is committed to making our community a more welcoming and open place. Under his leadership, Phoenix became the first U.S. city to end chronic homelessness among veterans.  Phoenix also earned national recognition as a leader on LGBTQ issues, and became the first Arizona city to earn a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign’s municipal equality index.” 
 
Stanton attended Marquette University on the Harry S. Truman Scholarship, and earned a law degree from the University of Michigan. Before he was elected to his first term as mayor in 2011, he served nine years on the City Council and as Arizona’s Deputy Attorney General. 
 
In 2015, Stanton won reelection and successfully led one of the most ambitious transportation initiatives in the country – a plan that is now working to triple Phoenix’s light rail system, expand bus service and build 1,000 miles of new bike lanes over the next 35 years.  
 
He and his wife Nicole have two children.
