Democrat Don Jorgensen has become the first District 26 candidate to file his petition signatures for the 2008 ballot, according to a release.
Jorgensen also submitted more than 300 $5 contributions, qualifying him as a Clean Elections candidate.
“The support I’ve received throughout LD26 is gratifying, and it reinforces the call for new leadership in Phoenix,” said Jorgensen, who seeks a seat in the Arizona House of Representatives. “As a small business owner and 30-year resident, I understand the challenges to our quality of life in health care, education and a sustainable environment. I am enjoying listening to my fellow residents and sharing my values and ideas on these issues.”
Jorgensen is the president of Jorgensen Brooks Group of Tucson.
His firm provides employee assistance program services, drug-free workplace training and leadership development.
Jorgensen is a past president of Greater Tucson Leadership and the international Employee Assistance Professionals Association.
He serves on the board of the Metropolitan YMCA and the Tucson / Pima County Commission on Addiction Prevention and Treatment.
