Statement:

I am deeply concerned about the pressing issues facing my community, particularly the critical shortage of housing that hinders access to homeownership for our growing population. This housing crisis is not just a matter of supply and demand; it is exacerbated by flawed public policies that have failed to prioritize affordable housing initiatives.

Furthermore, another issue that weighs heavily on my decision to run for office is the lack of adequate support for our law enforcement agencies. Our police officers are tasked with the vital responsibility of maintaining public safety, yet they often face significant obstacles due to insufficient resources and support. This has resulted in a decline in recruiting levels, making it even more difficult to ensure that our communities are adequately protected.

Endorsements:

AZ Chamber of Commerce, Arizona Police Association, Greater Phoenix Chamber
