Biographical Info:

Cory was born and raised in New Jersey where he met his wife during a Sunday morning church service. He married his wife Rebecca and they have four beautiful children. They decided to move to Arizona to escape the corrupt and abusive government in New Jersey. They chose Arizona for it’s freedom and liberty, low taxes and low regulation. Cory was able to settle in the Tucson area managing a local pest control company.

Statement:

The events over the past two years have been both astounding and terrifying. We saw a corrupted electoral system, schools teaching critical race theory and radical sexuality to young children, and a governor declaring a state of emergency that gave him the power to mandate medical decisions, close down whatever business he deemed unessential, and have our schools closed down. I looked to our elected leaders for help and couldn’t find anyone willing to stand up and fight for us. It became apparent that the politicians were more worried about their own political careers than doing what was right. I am running to fix the broken election system and eliminate the potential for fraud, to make sure medical decisions are left up to you and your doctor and not your politician and employer. I’m running to fix the school system and create school choice for all Arizonans, to make sure we teach the basics of reading, writing, and arithmetic and not critical race theory, radical sexuality and gender theory. We need an uncompromising fighter who will fight for freedom and liberty and won’t back down. I am running to be that fighter.

6. Allowing all parents to use tax credits, vouchers, or education savings accounts to enable their children to attend any public, charter, private, homeschool, or online academy.
