I am a candidate for Congress because I believe that government has lost its focus on working families. Our government is controlled by large corporations and working families and small business have been left behind. We are misplaced in the care of our environment and Arizona needs to protect our water supply and national landmarks. We need a congressman that will work both sides of the aisle for the best interest of people and our state. Thank you Stuart Starky
