Kyrsten Sinema Meets With Local Mayors at EVVEC

Don't worry. They did not demand the sum of...One Million Dollars. 
Community Leaders Discuss Veteran Issues at EVVEC

Arizona Congresswoman-elect Kyrsten Sinema, Mesa Mayor Scott Smith, Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton and Tempe Mayor Mark Mitchell met to discuss veterans’ issues at the East Valley Veterans Education Center earlier today.

“It's incredible to have this veteran center in the East Valley,” Sinema said. “We have a lot of veterans in this area and it's a great testament to our commitment to serve their needs.”

Leaving politics at the door, the four community leaders sat down to take a serious look at the problems facing military veterans and their families.

“One of the reasons I'm excited about being at this facility is that it is nonpartisan,” Sinema said. “We can all come together to serve those who serve our country.”

EVVEC, hosted by Rio Salado College, is a collaborative effort of five of the ten Maricopa County Community College District colleges. Its purpose is to provide one-stop support to veterans and their families.
