Wife - Elizabeth; Parents - Fred & Sharon
I'm running to continue to protect life, protect taxpayers, support job creation, and improve education through school choice. I’ve received the Friend of the Family award multiple times, Guardian of Small Business, and Hero of the Taxpayer awards. I’m a high school teacher as my day job, so I care about education, but I’m equally passionate about protecting our first responders and other critical priorities like keeping children safe from predators. We recently completed increasing teacher pay 20 percent as promised.  Another thing we did was to build up Arizona’s Rainy Day Fund so we’d be ready for an economic crisis. We now need it to help us get our state back on track as quickly as possible. Please help me to do so.
