Several years ago, I served in the Arizona State House where I built a record of conservative achievement on economic issues, jobs, public safety, and fighting illegal immigration. After that, I returned to the private sector and my family. With both Ben Toma and Anthony Kern running for Congress, our district suddenly found itself with open seats and I was asked to run by conservatives who wanted to make sure our district would continue having Arizona First legislators at the Capital. I agreed to run because we still have to fight and win the battle to secure our border, finish the wall, and repair the damage done by Joe Biden’s reckless policies. We have to secure our elections and make the process transparent and trustworthy again. We need to ensure the West Valley gets its fair share of transportation and infrastructure funding. And we need to fight inflation and high interest rates and make Arizona an affordable state that works for everyone again. I won awards for my conservative record before and I’m ready to fight for you again. I’m running as a team with Lisa Fink and Kevin Payne and hope you’ll support our team of proven conservatives.
