Why I'm Running

I want to be your state representative because I am appalled at what the Republicans in power are doing to our state. The devastating impact that bills coming out of this legislature have on families, the disabled, seniors, jobs, education and healthcare is unconscionable and it needs to stop. Our representatives should work for us, but in order for that to happen we must first change the focus and priorities of our legislature. I want to be part of that change because I know that I have the experience to make it happen. Click here to read the rest....

Economy • Education

Economy - Promote high wage job growth to allow for our citizens to achieve economic stability for their families as well as the well-being for our state. We need to stop the boom and bust cycle we have experienced and examine ways to promote stability.

Education - Minimize budget damage to schools, including K-12, Community Colleges and our Universities. Exceptional education opportunities are the foundation of success for both the individual student and the workforce needs of the future.

Environment - Preserve Arizona's resources to allow for the enjoyment of our wonderful state parks and natural settings. It nurtures our soul. We need to protect those resources. Support biotech and alternative energy industries as a true potential for our state and to alleviate those economic cycles that have harmed Arizona in the past few years.
