Running For:
Political Affiliation:
Strategist in the Data Integrity, Retail, Food Service, Supply Chain, and Tech Industries.
Merissa Hamilton's agenda is to make Phoenix safe, fight city corruption, and protect small businesses. With violent crime surging in Phoenix, Merissa's focus is to strengthen public safety with evidence-based solutions, including Police Deflection. Since 2014, homelessness has grown by over 200% in Phoenix. Merissa will bring an evidence-based approach to solving homelessness by creating short-and-long-term solutions with targeted strategies to help veterans, seniors, and the chronically homeless suffering from mental health and substance abuse issues. Recognizing the west coast cities are now failed cities, Phoenix is uniquely positioned in the supply chain to be the most innovative city in America. Merissa will bring manufacturing back to Phoenix. Our city should never be brought to our knees for lack of a local sufficient supply chain to fulfill our medical needs. Under a Merissa Hamilton administration, every business, every job, and every person is essential.
