TUCSON, Ariz. – According to Commander Mark Kelly, Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords’ husband who retired from the military this month, his wife is “looking forward” to voting for Democratic candidate for Mayor of Tucson Jonathan Rothschild in the upcoming November election.
Commander Kelly made the announcement Sunday at the Arizona Democratic Party’s 2011 Volunteer Awards Night dinner at the Arizona Science Center in Phoenix.
Rothschild, who was unable to attend due to a prior commitment, received the news via Twitter feed “…and I can tell you Gabby is looking forward to receiving [her] Vote By Mail ballot, so she can vote for her friend Jonathan Rothschild for Mayor.”
“Congresswoman Giffords is an inspiration and a role model, to the world and to me personally. I have known her since she knocked on my door in her first legislative race and I was immediately won over. I’ve supported her in every campaign since,” said Rothschild. “I am incredibly touched and honored to receive this show of support.”
A business attorney, Rothschild has a 30-year career helping Arizona small businesses start up and grow. He has been a community leader, looking out for children and the elderly as President of both Casa de los Niños and Handmaker Jewish Services for the Aging, as well as serving in many other respected local charities and organizations.
