Gaynor Releases Statement on 9/11

Phoenix, Arizona – Republican candidate for Governor Steve Gaynor released a statement on 9/11 today.

“Most of us remember where we were on 9/11/2001. I do, because when I heard that the towers had been struck, I knew my brother was at risk. From the moment the first tower came down until I heard he was alive was the longest twelve hours of my life. He was one of the few people who survived a serious injury that day. His life was saved by strangers who paused long enough to offer him assistance, by police and firefighters who regularly put their own lives in danger to protect us, and the doctors who saved his life. I owe a debt of gratitude to all of them, and I am thankful my brother is alive.

This is a day to honor the memory of all those who perished that day, and to remember their families. To honor all of the police, firefighters and other first responders who selflessly rushed to the site that day knowing that other lives were in danger. And finally, to remember that at one of America’s darkest hours, we put aside our differences, as we have on so many occasions in our nation’s history, and stood together as one to face the challenge before us.”
