Meet the Candidate

Running For:
Arizona House of Representatives
Political Affiliation:
Investment Real Estate
I am running for office as a conservative candidate to keep taxes low and the economy strong, limit government, and stop illegal immigration to keep Arizona a prosperous place to live. I support educational choice, including open enrollment, believing parents – not bureaucrats – should decide what is best for our children. I want to ensure that we keep common sense policies that strengthen life, family, and religious freedom. I have executive leadership experience that brings strong communication and negotiation skills to the legislature. I was instrumental in the effort to protect Scottsdale’s Gateway Preserve from city development of the DDC. Now I want to help Arizona make sound conservative policies that will protect our future and keep us from becoming another failed liberal state.
