As a government by and for the people, I believe special interests have too loud a voice in Arizona politics. I support having elections that are completely publicly funded, and all efforts to protect voter rights.

 

Education:

Fully funding public education is paramount to a strong economy. This includes competitive salaries for teachers, and fully funded infrastructure. I oppose measures to redirect public funds to private institutions specifically expanded ESA voucher programs.

 

Healthcare:

In order to protect both physical and economic health, I support an expanded Medicaid system in Arizona. Healthcare is a human right and should be affordably accessible for all Arizonans.

 

Women’s rights:

A woman’s right to choose should be decided by the individual, her family and a healthcare provider as a matter of public health and law.

 

Gun Control:

I respect the 2nd Amendment and firmly believe in the Right to Bear Arms. As a matter of public safety and with respect to the specific language in the Bill of Rights, I support sensible gun control including interstate background checks, the closure of so-called gun show and internet loopholes, bans on military style weapons and aftermarket devices designed to enhance firepower.

 

Taxes:

There is no need to raise taxes in order to afford strong public education, healthcare and infrastructure. Closing corporate tax loopholes and tax give-a-ways is essential in order for the wealthy, who do not need them, and can pay their fair share.
