ON THE ISSUES
Education is the foundation of our country. An educated Arizona only brightens our future. We must continue to support all educational opportunities for Arizona’s children. Public, Charter, Trade, Technical, Computer, and any other school that benefits our future generations.
I proudly served in the United States Army for 22 years. Unfortunately, many veterans are forgotten once they leave the service. I will continue finding ways to help America’s heroes when they return home.
CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM
Our criminal justice system needs repair. Sentencing reforms, inmate education, and decreasing the recidivism rate is critical to Arizona. Currently, Arizona’s economy is losing 3 billion dollars per year from our prison population. Education and workforce training is crucial to future economic growth.
A nation without borders isn’t a nation at all. Supporting our Border Patrol and other law enforcement officers who work to keep us safe shouldn’t be a partisan issue. Stopping the flow of narcotics and weapons into our country is critically important, and will save lives. Legal immigration is vital to the growth of our nation. Tens of thousands of immigrants come to this country each year who have gone through all the steps to come here legally. We need to make this process easier and encourage all people to follow this model.
Rural Arizonans have a great respect for the 2nd Amendment. It gives us the right to protect our land from wildlife, hunt, and most importantly protect our families. I will always fight to protect our Constitutional Rights, and the 2nd Amendment is no different.
JOBS & ECONOMY
Rural Arizona is oftentimes overlooked by legislators at the Capitol who are focused on bringing jobs to Maricopa County. I will continue working to bring more opportunities to our district. Our district is flush with natural resources, but is stuck under the control of the Federal Government. I will continue pushing legislation to change that.
Rural Arizona is in desperate need of reliable internet services. I am committed to work for improvements in broadband to rural areas of Arizona. It is important for personal and economic development.
The lifeblood of our state is too often overlooked. Ranchers feed us all and are stewards of the land. We need to remove regulations that are harmful to the ranching community. I will continue to work with stakeholders to ease government overreach on Ranchers across Arizona.
I am very Pro-Life, watch this video to see why:
ELECTION SECURITY & INTEGRITY
Ensuring all Arizonans have secure and fair elections is critical. We must defend our voter ID laws and ensure election integrity.
Providing quality affordable healthcare is crucial to all Arizonans. Rural Arizonans need access to the same healthcare provided to other residents in our state.
A balanced state budget is so important to the future of the State of Arizona and it's citizens. We can’t afford to act like Congress and accrue massive amounts of debt. I will continue to push for balanced budgets and to lower taxes.
