State Senator - District 21

In these uncertain times, our district needs steady, tested leadership. It’s been an honor to serve as your State Senator and be elected by my colleagues as Senate Majority Leader. During this time, I have prioritized education, giving teachers and parents more say over the educational process and choices. I have championed policies that promote economic growth and public safety. I’ve worked on issues important to my constituents, such as honoring our Veterans by renaming a bridge to Veterans Bridge, championing the Caregiver Grant Program for our Seniors, and providing PTSD treatment for our First Responders. Because of my work I’ve been awarded the Legislative Spirit of Community Leadership award, Champion of the Taxpayer and Friend of the Family, because of my commitment to the taxpayers and families of my district. Please visit VoteRickGray.com for more information and don’t hesitate to contact me with questions, or if I can be of service to you. Like you, my wife Lisa and I love Arizona, especially the West Valley, and are blessed to call this home. I ask for your vote and plan to continue working to make Arizona the best place to have a business, raise a family, vacation, and retire.

I am an independent thinker who puts people over politics. I answer to the people in my district, not to outside special interests. I am a well-established community leader with a reputation for inclusive and effective leadership and creative problem solving. I am known as a steadfast champion for public education, and I use my energy to support the military, economic and workforce development, and access to affordable health care. My retired businessman husband and I have two successful, adult daughters. I help care for my mother, who lives in a nearby senior community. My experience as a teacher, school board member, and non-profit leader has equipped me to lead during challenging times and to make difficult decisions to ensure people are protected and investments are strategic and smart. I am often described as hard-working and "practically everywhere." That's because I am dedicated to serving our community wherever I can help. My innovative thinking will help Arizona emerge from our current crisis, rebuild our economy, and become a better place for all of us. I will work across the aisle and across Arizona to ensure a brighter future for the citizens of our beloved state.

I’ve only been in the Legislature for two terms, but so far so good. I said I’d insist on a real balanced budget and that’s what Arizona has. I said I’d work to lower taxes, limit the size of government, and reduce regulations, and that’s what I’ve done. I said I’d make education funding a priority and we passed historic increases that dramatically increased K-12 funding (while EVERY House Democrat voted NO). I led the fight to protect Sun City homeowners against efforts to impose an HOA along with onerous fees and costs. Today, we’re getting Arizona back on its feet after the virus shutdown and Arizona is a national leader in the recovery. Boosting our health care system and safely getting our businesses and schools back to full operations are my priorities. You get TWO votes for State Representative so please vote for Payne AND Pingerelli. Our opponent Kathy Knecht holds extreme partisan views and is campaigning against my record of increased school funding and teacher pay. We need solutions, not hardcore partisans posing as independent thinkers. I'm an Arizona native and Navy veteran. I’ve been married over 30 years with four children and eight grandchildren. Thank you!

Arizona's continuing prosperity relies on a foundation of opportunity and high-quality education, both of which require safe and secure working environments. I support law enforcement and real border security and I’ll oppose any attempts to defund our police. I support tax and regulatory reforms that will spur renewed economic growth, add high-paying jobs and help Arizona recover from the impact of COVID-19. I support K-12 education and reforms that make academic achievement for ALL students the top priority and strengthen parental school choice. And I support career and vocational training to keep pace with workforce technological advancements. In contrast, our opponent Kathy Knecht, campaigns for higher taxes, and opposes school choice and options that empower parents and students. With thirty years of clinical and biotechnology experience I know quality healthcare is essential, and I’ll support reforms that empower consumers by increasing access while lowering costs. These are the principles guiding me if elected State Representative. I've been married 32 years and have two daughters. You get TWO votes, so please vote Pingerelli AND Payne. Elect a team that will work together for better schools and healthcare and a stronger economy. Thank you!
