Jaime Alvarez
State Senator - District 14

It's time that the government does what it is meant to do - serve YOUR needs, and not the needs of rich corporations and special interest groups. I'm a retired auditor with analytical skills and insight to understand financial statements and budgets. Professional standards obligated us to serve and honor the public interest and trust. Working for the Army over 30 years my customer was the soldier in the foxhole, in the Senate my focus will be district constituents. The Army ethos and values I learned in the Marine Corps have never failed me. I bring those values and business acumen to the district. I'm running because our state government has failed us, our children, grandchildren and their future. Educators energized and incumbents were forced to listen. Vote incumbents out! Incumbents litigate federal overreach but legislate state overreach. Incumbents ban local governments from controlling local issues with the threat of withholding state funding. Arizonans want transparency but incumbents enact "dark money" legislation to hide their donors. We need to i) stop this extreme ideology ii) restore public education, iii) rollback state overreach, and, iv) clean-up the State Capitol. I'm a man of the people and for the people - vote for me.

We are a state full of promise. We need to strengthen our educational system, secure economic growth in our rural communities, create a quality healthcare system that protects ALL Arizonans and protect our precious natural resources. - Mendy Gomez

This is a classic conservative vs liberal contest. As a former State Representative I was named Champion of the Taxpayer, Friend of the Family, earned an A+ from the NRA, turned our state's budget deficit into a surplus, and helped turn Arizona into the #1 pro-life state, #1 pro-2nd Amendment state, and #1 pro-school choice state in the country, all while cutting regulations and growing jobs. As a result of my leadership I was ultimately elected Speaker of the House, giving rural and Southern Arizona real influence, and making myself a target of the liberal media and their fake news. My opponent (Drew John) was a life-long Democrat until he switched to the GOP just one day before he filed to run for State House, and in his one term he voted like a Democrat, supporting liberal bills and raising fees and taxes.  Now, after just two years of liberal voting he wants a promotion to the State Senate? I'm running because conservatives need a strong voice, and I'm willing to tolerate the negative attacks because I know how important the freedoms and people I'm fighting for are. I ask for your vote so we can win this fight together!

I am a US veteran, mother of 3, (two children who are also veterans), as well as the wife of a retired veteran. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Secondary Education, Social Science Comprehensive as well as English as a Second Language. As a local business owner and member of the community, I have grown tired of the career politicians and growth of the federal government at the expense of the people and the individual rights of all. I think it is time for a change. I am a constitutional, fiscal conservative. I want to shorten the grip our government has on our personal liberties and our money. It is time to give the power back to the people. We must start electing Representatives and not politicians.

Legislative District 14 needs a strong voice at the capital for Greater Arizona. I have the leadership skills and experience to continue to be that voice. JOBS and economic stability of our state and local communities is of high priority. I believe in LIMITED GOVERNMENT, LOWER TAXES, PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY and the FREE ENTERPRISE SYSTEM. Important issues include EDUCATION EXCELLENCE, ensuring taxpayer dollars make it to the classroom to help students and teachers improve academic achievement. I believe we have a duty and responsibility to SECURE OUR BORDERS, enforce our laws and protect the citizens of Arizona. Border Security is National Security. I will continue the fight for the PROTECTION OF PROPERTY RIGHTS, WATER RIGHTS and Veterans issues. I am PRO-BUSINESS, PRO-TAXPAYER, PRO-FAMILY and PRO-CONSTITUTION. I am a successful businesswoman. I am a member of the Arizona Cattle Growers, Arizona Farm Bureau and a Life Member of the NRA. As a recipient of Legislator of the Year from the Rural Health Association and other similar awards from the NFIB (National Federation of Independent Business) and Arizona March of Dimes, I will continue to WORK FOR YOU. Thank you for your support and your vote.

I am running for Arizona State Representative because I believe that democracy is best served by a vigorous discussion of the issues facing our state government. For too long opposing viewpoints are routinely ignored by our state elected officials. A strong multi-party system helps ensure that those in power are held accountable by the voters. Arizona state government must: Invest in public education Invest in a modern infrastructure Stop tax breaks to special interests Allow local governments to govern Support economic fairness Support diversity and inclusion Protect a women's right to choose Protect the environment Support affordable access to comprehensive healthcare for all If elected, I will work hard as your state representative to be a voice for southeastern Arizona counties of Cochise, Greenlee, Graham and Pima. I pledge to listen to everyone, respecting those that do not agree with me; representing all of you, honesty, effectively and professionally. It is time for new leadership in southeast Arizona.

I advocate that Arizona is only as strong as its weakest link and if our rural communities are weak it leaves our State susceptible to weakness. My platform while running for office, since being elected to office, and remains as I seek re-election to office is stabilizing rural economies to help our towns and counties be healthy, stable, and productive. Key to this is building resources to seek out and encourage local entrepreneurs, attracting others, and vying for light industry to expand and/or move to Southeastern Arizona. Our rural education system is another key component. Our youth and young adults must be equipped with the tools they need to live prosperous and productive lives. By working together, we can help make our rural schools to be among the best in the Nation! I advocate for rural Arizona and our lifestyle and am working for a strong and stable economy. I need and ask for your vote to continue being a voice that brings our rural issues and needs to the Arizona State Legislature. I appreciate your support and thank you for your vote!

I am a patriot. I believe it is time we keep the promise of "...a Government-of-by-for-"The People". A State Representative should be a powerful voice and advocate for all Arizona Citizens. As a "Clean Elections Candidate", I pledge transparency and I will NOT accept funds from "dark money" sources. I intend to engage & empower citizens to become-an Arizona United-working together to fight for the opportunity and freedom, for all to thrive. We will promote policies and legislation that protect the "common good". We can achieve our American Dreams. I am a not a politician. I am a Citizen/Activist-I stand for- Elections: Secured--Education: Funded--Equality: Achieved--Empathy: Restored--Environment & Economy: Assured"” I invite you to stand with me!
