Just two hours after Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton launched his campaign for Congress, Councilman Daniel Valenzuela announced his intent to run for the top city office.
If successful, Valenzuela would be the first Latino mayor of Phoenix. He is a Glendale firefighter and has served on the Phoenix City Council since 2012.
Valenzuela, a Democrat, has focused on public safety, innovation, education and health during his council tenure.
