Phoenix – Former Congressman and Republican gubernatorial candidate Matt Salmon today announced the endorsement of retired Nogales Police Chief Derek Arnson.
“Derek has spent years serving communities throughout the state of Arizona and understands well the challenges that law enforcement officers face. I am grateful for the insight that he has provided as a founding member of my law enforcement coalition, and I look forward to working with him to improve the lives of the men and women who keep our neighborhoods safe,” said Salmon.
Arnson said, “Matt is a proven champion for public safety and doesn’t back down from a fight when it comes to backing the blue. I joined his law enforcement coalition because it’s clear that he will listen to those on the frontline and incorporate their concerns into smart public policy. I am proud to endorse Matt Salmon as the next governor of Arizona, and I hope that law enforcement across our state will join me.”
