PHOENIX (September 4, 2019)—Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry President and CEO Glenn Hamer released the following statement following Gov. Ducey’s appointment of Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery to the state Supreme Court:
“Bill Montgomery will make an outstanding Supreme Court justice. This is a superb choice by Gov. Ducey. Having known Bill for over a decade and having had the privilege of serving on his Business Advisory Council, I can attest to his legal wisdom, his integrity, and his love for this state and this country. He is a true American success story. Born into challenging circumstances, he rose to be a West Point graduate, a decorated Gulf War veteran, and a county attorney. Few Arizonans are better prepared than Bill Montgomery to serve on the state Supreme Court. He will be an excellent jurist. This is a great day for the state.
“Gov. Ducey should be applauded for this pick. Once again, the governor has chosen the best person for the job and has ensured that the state Supreme Court is made up of individuals whose respect for the law and constitution is paramount. The governor’s approach to judicial selections will be a cornerstone of his legacy.”
