Governor Jan Brewer Endorses Steve Chucri

MARICOPA COUNTY – . . . Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has proudly announced her endorsement of Steve Chucri for Maricopa County Supervisor District 2. The Governor joins the ranks of many supporting Steve’s campaign in this very important election for the county. “Steve Chucri is the real deal – a trusted conservative, a beloved husband and father, a problem-solver not a bomb-thrower, and the grandson of Arizona business pioneers. Steve’s faith, wisdom and leadership are reflected in his beautiful family, and successful career in the private sector. I firmly believe that Steve Chucri is the right person to lead Maricopa County on the Board of Supervisors,” stated Governor Brewer.

In addition to this latest endorsement, Chucri was recently endorsed by U. S. Senator Jon Kyl, Congressman Jeff Flake, Congressman Ben Quayle, Congressman David Schweikert, Congressman Paul Gosar, Congressman Trent Franks, State Senate President Steve Pierce, Speaker of the House Andy Tobin, State Treasurer Doug Ducey, Maricopa County Supervisor Andy Kunasek, Gilbert Mayor John Lewis, Mesa Mayor Scott Smith, Scottsdale Mayor Jim Lane, Chandler Mayor Jay Tibshraeny, and Paradise Valley Mayor Scott LeMarr.

Chucri has served as the President & CEO of the Arizona Restaurant Association since 2002. Under his leadership, the ARA and restaurant industry in Arizona has enjoyed a substantial growth in sales. As President and CEO of the ARA, Chucri represents business owners and sees firsthand how the actions of local, state, and federal governments can positively or negatively impact restaurants and other small businesses in Arizona. Chucri’s experiences as a businessman, husband, and father have given him invaluable insight into the needs of his community, and ensure that, as county supervisor, he will always put people before politics.

  1. Hey guys, welcome to the Livefyre community! Please feel free to let us know if you have any questions or feedback for us. We’d be happy to help.

       @annedreshfield Hi Anne, thanks!  I really like LiveFyre. However, I am not sure the import of our FB comments worked quite right. See as an example. That said, I did not do the work for the import, and the developer may have more info than I. But if you have any insight, please let me know and I will share it with him. Thx!

      1.  @ChristopherCook Hi Christopher! We don’t import Facebook comments, because Facebook doesn’t post comments back. However, we took a look in our database and it doesn’t look like you’ve added your Facebook page via the Livefyre admin panel. If you have any questions as you move forward with that, feel free to email us at and we’ll dig into it for you!

           @annedreshfield Hi Anne!  I sent your last comment on to the developer; hopefully it will aid him. In the meantime, I have another Q. I LOVE the fact that I get emailed when a comment comes in. Is that because mine is the primary email on the account, or can others get notified when comments come in as well. If my authors could somehow get an email when someone comments on one of their pieces, that would be great!

        2.  @ChristopherCook Absolutely! You could set your authors to moderators in the admin panel, so they would all receive notifications of new comments and replies rolling in. In addition, as long as they have a Livefyre account, they can hit “follow conversation” underneath the comment box to receive notifications about the conversation. A user automatically follows a conversation by commenting on the blog post, too. 

        3.  @annedreshfield  I logged in and got to the settings section, but I am not seeing any place to add moderators. Am I missing something obvious? (Wouldn’t be the first time.)

        4.  @WesternFreePress Follow these steps: 1) go under settings in your admin panel; 2) select the blog you’re altering the settings for; 3) click Users; and 4) type in the username or email of the person you would like to designate as a moderator on the site. Hope this helps! 

        5.  @annedreshfield Okay, I think I have found the right place now, thanks to your instructions. That said, it looks like people I designate must be signed up with LiveFyre first (I tried to just add an email, but it said there was no matching account. Can you confirm—do I need to get my people to sign up first, and if so, what is the link I should send them to? Thx!

        6.  @WesternFreePress Yes, they should be. They can do so here:

        7.  @annedreshfield Very cool. That should do it. Thanks!!

        8.  @WesternFreePress Sure thing! Let us know if you need anything else. :)
