Biographical Info:

Mr. Butierez the oldest of 5 children is a 3rd generation Arizonan. He was born in Tucson to a Hispanic father and an Irish mother. He remembers a community where family and neighbors knew each other and were like one big family. This no longer exist in our political environment. Democrats are all about divide and conquer. They have divided us based on social issues while ignoring real issues.

Butierez, a man who was wrongfully convicted and sentenced to 10 years, eventually turned to drugs and became homeless. For years Mr. Butierez an outcast of society lived in the streets of Tucson. Mr. Butierez a true underdog got up and envisioned a path to victory. With the stigma of a felony, and a Hispanic male followed a path guided by God.

Being a man who had worked hard his whole life got up and got going. He was very selective of his friends and worked for Express Painting from 2007-2017. He left to begin building his own company. Though he passed his Contractor’s Exam the Board of Contractors denied him his license. Mr. Butierez a man who had fought Arizona since 1992 on his wrongful conviction wasn’t one to give up.

He eventually got his license and built Butierez Painting. In 2020 the State admitted Mr. Butierez was correct about his wrongful conviction and Judge Bergin found there had never been a conviction. From there Mr. Butierez continued to climb and then bought Express Painting.

Today Mr. Butierez is ready to fight for the people of Arizona. He wants to secure our borders, set up a program that follows the path he took to move from being homeless to now a business owner, and address our crime crisis.

Mr. Butierez is the man Arizona needs now.

Statement:

To end our political divide!!!
To secure our borders and focus on our forgotten citizens.
To save our country from the insanity of our present leaders.

Arizona presently has no representation for CD 7. Since October of 2023 Raul Grijalva has missed over 100 votes. This means of the two people on the ballot, only one being Mr. Butierez is capable of even doing the job. Sadly for Mr. Grijalva he is battling cancer and far to old and unhealthy to continue doing this job.

Question Response Comments/Notes
1. Securing the border by preventing all illegal crossings. S* Pima county has spent $70,000,000 of our tax money housing illegals while our homeless are being left hooked on the fentanyl being brought across our southern border.
2. Amending the Arizona State Constitution to grant a fundamental right to every individual to an abortion. O* I’m a Catholic and as such can not surrender my integrity to support this. Only a man with no principles would ignore his beliefs and surrender his integrity to turn from his Catholic beliefs to retain power. I belief in the sanctity of life. This is an issue that impacts less than 1% of 1% of the population designed by a party that believes men should be free to ignore a woman’s rights to sports, bathrooms and showers. This is to divide a nation on a singular issue that doesn’t impact the majority struggling in our country. Fortunately, it is a State issue and I’m running for Federal Office to address issues impacting all of us.
3. Appointing federal judges who will interpret the U.S. Constitution according to the framers’ original intent or text, rather than by evolving standards. S
4. Adding "sexual orientation," "gender identity," and "gender expression" to the protected classes of race, religion, age, sex, and ancestry in nondiscrimination law. −* This is to broad of a question. Do I believe they should be protected from transgressions? Yes. Do I believe these ideas should be taught to our children and flaunted in front of 6 year olds? No. Should the public be forced to acknowledge their genders when these opinions stand against scientific facts? No.
5. Allowing all parents to use tax credits and taxpayer funded empowerment scholarship accounts to enable their children to attend any private school, homeschool, or online academy of their choice. S* I believe our children are more important than our cars. If I can select the mechanic that is best for my car, why would our children be considered less important than our cars? If our public schools want that money and our children, then they need to prove it. Manage taxes better, take social ideology out of classes. Only allow students that have citizenship to be enrolled in our classes. The upper administration needs to start splitting their huge salaries with the teachers and remove government from our schools.
6. Amending the U.S. Constitution to require Congress to balance the federal budget every year. O* This would cause more harm than good. We need to handle this issue at the ballot box. To do this would create longer recessions.
7. Using taxpayer funds to support any organization that performs, promotes, or provides referrals for abortion. O* It is this issue that makes abortion such a heated topic. I believe abortion should be between a mother, her doctor and God. It’s no one else’s business until our government decides those who weren’t in the bedroom are left to pay for the consequences.
8. Interpreting the 2nd Amendment as protecting an individual’s right to keep and bear arms. S* The Second Amendment is our God given right to defend herself. A woman who’s about to be raped and happens to be a bad shot, may need 30 rounds to save her life.
9. Allowing individuals and businesses to not provide services or promote ideas that violate their moral or religious beliefs. S* I believe this is protected by our separation of church and state right. The government is established by our Constitution which was created to protect our God given rights. That separates our government from our church but not our church from our government.
10. Federalizing election law by removing state authority over elections. O* States should stop relinquishing their rights to the Federal Government.
11. Eliminating the filibuster rule requiring 60 votes in the U.S. Senate to move most legislation. O
12. Regulating or banning social media platforms that are owned or controlled by certain foreign governments. S
