Statement:
I moved from my native state of Oregon to Arizona because I wanted to live in a state that more closely aligned with my values and respected our personal and economic freedoms. I’ve loved living and building my business in Arizona and want to bring my experiences making tough decisions, attracting investment to our state and carefully managing budgets to our State Capitol. My priorities as your State Representative will include keeping taxes and regulations low, opposing unnecessary government programs and investing in our students so they are prepared for the careers of tomorrow. I’m a proud, limited-government Conservative who’s committed to border security, protecting the sanctity of life, market-based reforms of our education and health care systems and who will defend our Constitutional Rights.
Endorsements:
AZ Nurses Association (AzNA), AZ Chamber of Commerce, AZ Tech Council
