Statement:
I want an Arizona friendly to individual liberties. I am a limited government, pro-business conservative who wants to keep this state great for families to live and work. I have spent my career working in public policy and grassroots advocacy. I have worked at the Arizona House of Representatives as a policy advisor for the Republican caucus. There, I learned about the needs and priorities of Arizonans across the state. Over the course of my career, I have developed a great understanding of what the public needs out of a good legislator. My experience working in that environment will allow me to serve my constituents effectively from day one on the job.
