Statement:

The constitutional rights of Arizonans are under attack. I feel that my experience and knowledge can provide ammunition for this battle. As a state representative, I co-sponsored a bill allowing concealed carry rights without a permit and legislation protecting the sanctity of life. I continue to support vouchers, savings accounts, and tax credits to empower parents to advocate for their children’s education. Furthermore, business owners should not be required to provide services that violate their moral/religious beliefs. I served as a trustee on the Maricopa Community College Board beginning in 2017, successfully reducing the budget burdens created by wasteful spending and union demands. I am currently a member of the Gilbert Town Council where I successfully argued against taxpayer-funded sex reassignment surgery.
