State Senator - District 20
I am Senator Sally Ann Gonzales. I've had the privilege and honor to serve my constituents for the past 12 years. It has been my mission to advocate and protect our most vulnerable citizens, our children, elders, disabled, and veterans. As Arizona continue to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and enters a housing crisis, it is crucial to continue to work to provide a safety-net for all our citizens impacted. In the education arena, fully funding our public district schools means providing, competitive salaries and benefits for all teachers and support staff as well as smaller classroom sizes. Having full-time counselors and nurses at each school is vital for the social and emotional wellbeing of our students. I'm committed to expanding vocational opportunities and growing our workforce by funding and supporting programs like JTED. It is essential that our three universities/community colleges be recognized, treated, and funded as engines of economic development in Arizona. In closing, clean air and water are essential to the well-being of our citizens. Therefore, Arizona must have strong laws to ensure the protection and improvement of our environment. PROTECTING OUR VOTING RIGHTS IS FUNDAMENTAL! I humbly ask for your continued support on November 8, 2022.
State Representative - District 20
Hello! I'm State Representative Andres Cano. I've had the honor of serving in the Arizona House of Representatives since 2019. Arizona continues to make headlines for all the wrong reasons. For example: our state is at the bottom of K-12 spending nationwide, we spend more money sending people to prison annually than on our three universities combined, housing costs are skyrocketing, and our environment is more at risk than ever before. As your voice at the Capitol, I opposed dozens of laws restricting our freedom to vote, voted against the 15-week abortion ban, and vehemently said "no" to the passage of discriminatory legislation that harms Arizona's LGBTQ+ youth. While my Republican colleagues refuse to bring us together, I won't sit silent: I'm running for reelection to hold them accountable and to leave our state with a reputation we can be proud of. With a $5 billion surplus, we have the resources needed to invest in working families and small businesses, to lower health care costs, increase teacher pay, and to protect our air, land, and water. I humbly ask for your vote of confidence as I seek to continue representing our shared values in the State House. Thank you.
State Representative - District 20
Growing up as the youngest of three Hernandez kids, Alma has always been a fighter for her place in the world, and that drive has been important to her success. From her start in Sunnyside School District, Alma developed a passion for service and commitment to improving her community. After graduating from Sunnyside High School, she attended the University of Arizona, where she earned a master's in public health and a second masters in law and Economics. Her decision to get involved in public health issues stemmed from a wide range of inequities she saw within Arizona's health care system in her own community. Today, Alma Hernandez serves as a State Representative for LD-20, becoming a strong voice for women and communities of color in the Arizona House. In the Arizona House, she's authored several bills focused on economic empowerment, healthcare, and education. Alma and her siblings are active in Tucson's Jewish community and has become a powerful advocate for her faith throughout Arizona. As your State Representative, Alma will continue working to build up her community, strengthen our small business community and improve education funding across our state.
