Statement:
Coconino County citizens need qualified, experienced, bipartisan leadership that will protect their rights, ensure quality County services and keep their taxes low. Additionally, District 4 includes Navajo and Hopi citizens who need good county representation that is also willing to work closely with Tribal Leadership. I have over 40-years of business and public service experience, and I know how to write laws, create responsible budgets, and work closely with the State government to protect the interests of the County. As a Legislator, I ran bills for AZ counties and saved them tens of millions of dollars. If I am fortunate enough to be elected, I will be an advocate for our citizens, and will gladly meet with them to address their specific issues.
