Meet the Candidate

Running For:
Arizona Senate

I am running to give better representation to the people of this district. I will work in the Senate to have morally based laws pasted that improve education, increase local prosperity, and ensure that health care is available to everyone. I will work to eliminate the clutter of overlapping, outdated, red tape laws that bind our society. We are a people who are hard working and self reliant. Increased freedom and liberty should be a major part of all new laws. Everyone should feel that the law is working FOR them, justly and fairly. These are achievable goals. When elected I will maintain close communication to all within the district. I will hold meeting, walk the district, and have email and telephone communication for all.
