Gov. Jan Brewer on June 4 named Qwest Communications executive Victor Daniels as her policy advisor for urban outreach and military affairs.
“His experience in community and urban outreach will prove invaluable in building relationships with organizations that represent minority interests,” the governor stated in a press release. “He will also serve as liaison to Arizona’s military community and help maintain our state’s strong commitment to our military members.”
Prior to joining the Brewer administration, Daniels spent several years as community affairs manager for Qwest’s northern Arizona region. As community affairs manager, he worked closely with various cities and counties and was responsible for promoting economic and workforce development, as well as advocating Qwest’s position in federal and state telecommunications legislation.
Daniels also served as northern Arizona district coordinator for former U.S. Rep. J.D. Hayworth, acting as liaison for the congressman on Native American issues, and as a coordinator for minority business development and manager for constituent services relating to federal issues for northern Arizona. Prior to his time on Hayworth’s staff, he served as district coordinator for U.S. Rep. James Rogan of California’s 27th congressional district.
