Press release : Courtney Frogge has officially filed to run for State House in Legislative District 10.
“I was raised to believe that if you work hard and play by the rules, the State of Arizona was full of opportunity and you could have a piece of the American dream – a quality public education, start a business, raise a family, and have a secure retirement. This was true for generations and can be true again, which is why I am running for State House in Legislative District 10,” Courtney Frogge explained.
With the announcement, also came strong local and statewide support. In the first days of the campaign, Courtney Frogge has earned the endorsements of Representative Bruce Wheeler, who is vacating the seat, as well as district incumbents Senator David Bradley and Representative Stefanie Mach.
