  • /salmonforcongress - I am proud to announce that the Arizona Highway Patrol Association has endorsed my campaign for Congress.

    AHPA was established in 1958 and is "Dedicated To All DPS Employees." AHPA membership is made up of entirely of DPS employees and retirees, sworn and civilian, and is the only organization that represents only DPS employees. AHPA has been representing the interests of sworn officers, civilians and retirees for more than 50 years.

    Thank you to all the officers for their service.

    Like and share this if you find his argument as outrageous as I do.
