Andrea Dalessandro
State Senator - District 2
Democratic
http://dalessandroforaz.com/
Senator Andrea Dalessandro has taught elementary, high school, community college and university for over 25 years. Since 2008 she has run for the legislature to fight the systemic defunding of public education. She is grateful to the Red for ED movement and that educators and their supporters from around the state witnessed an informative civics lesson. She serves as the Ranking Member of Natural Resources, Energy and Water Committee. She was one of only two legislators to receive an A+ on the Grand Canyon Chapter of Sierra Club's Report Club. She is the State Lead for the National Caucus of Environmental Legislators. Her Senate Concurrent Memorial, which passed with bipartisan support, urges Congress to pass the Nogales Wastewater Fairness Act. When the Corporation Commission has meetings in Tucson you can count on her being there to fight for rooftop solar and the good paying jobs that the solar industry generates. Senator Dalessandro was named Legislator of the Year by the Arizona Association of Community Health Centers after being nominated by Mariposa Health Center in Santa Cruz County. She has been a tireless advocate for restoring Cherrybell Mail Processing Center in Tucson to full operational status. Reelect LD2 Senator Andrea Dalessandro.

When you send legislators to Phoenix to represent you, you expect just that--representation. As a business owner and resident of LD2, I have seen first-hand that we do not have advocates for us in Phoenix to overcome the advantage that Maricopa County has in the Legislature. We have no seat at the table. Those of us looking for jobs, wanting safe communities and good schools have seen no change in six years. While Maricopa County grows, Southern Arizona remains stagnant. I am running because I believe there are opportunities for Southern Arizona. I have seen the strength and grace of its people. As a member of Pima JTED Business/Industry Council, I have witnessed the amazing work of our students; as an Honorary Commander and member of the Desert Thunder Squadron at Davis Monthan AFB, I know the importance of our military. The skills I have developed through business and as a former teacher will serve our district well in the Legislature. I am asking for your vote to take a seat at the table and represent all of you. Please call me with any questions at 520-306-1480. Working together, we can make Arizona the best it can be.

From a humble beginning as a poor Oklahoma farm boy with no father and a deranged mother, he worked his way through college and law school, practiced law for many years and then moved to Arizona in order to teach and develop collage level law courses and continues to so to this day. In the meantime he and his wife, Eileen, raised three daughters and started several businesses in Arizona and Mexico which they eventually sold to their employees, He is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and small business and wants to work with the governor and legislature to phase out the state's income tax and lower everyone's property taxes. He has created "Bobby's Plan to Make Arizona Great'' that he believes will accomplish that goal without raising anyone's taxes. He believes that vocational training in all high schools is a priority in order to create pools of trained workers in this state to attract out-of-state businesses to help boost our local economy, especially in South Tucson and Santa Cruz County. He is active in the Green Valley/Sahuarita Republican Club and is a Precinct Committeeman and volunteers at the local Catholic Church and at Friends-In Deed.

Being your Representative was my honor. I worked hard to live up to the trust you placed in me. As and career physics and math teacher, strengthening our education system is one of my top priorities. As your Representative I helped spearhead the effort in the House to restore funding for career and technical education, stood firm to protect education in the budget process, and fought to give students and parents the right to say no to excessive standardized testing. Together we must continue to address flaws in our education funding systems and ensure our accountability systems are meaningful and effective. As one of the few legislators from Southern Arizona serving in the majority, I had the ability to move and shape legislation. As a native Arizonan, I took representing the people and communities of our region seriously. While serving, I advocated for investing in our transportation infrastructure, stood up to protect our children in need, and worked to resolve issues for our community colleges. The legislation I sponsored and passed was focused on solving problems for our communities. Please give me your vote as I continue to work for you and Southern Arizona as your Representative.

Leadership, Experience, and Integrity; it is an honor to take ideas from Southern Arizona to the State House of Representatives because that is what Arizona needs; a little common sense and straight from the heart. Running for my fourth term as an Arizona State Representative for Legislative District 2, I am known for my work with the local stakeholders, school boards and business partners to bring together successful opportunities for growth and education. I serve on both the Land, Agriculture and Rural Affairs and Local and International Affairs Committees. I believe in creating opportunities and prosperity by supporting and encouraging public education and economic development efforts. I will continue to work diligently to protect Arizona's unique environment and to protect our most vulnerable. In addition, I serve on the Friends of the Green Valley Library, the Southeast Arizona Advisory Board of the Chicanos Por La Causa, Advisory Council of the Green Valley Salvation Army, and the Southeast Arizona Citizens Forum Board of the International Boundary Water Commission. We have been successful in bringing together the collective energy and leadership necessary to shape the future of our State.

Daniel Hernandez Jr., is a native Arizonan, lifelong Democrat, and Member of the Arizona State Legislature representing South Tucson, Sahuarita, Green Valley and Santa Cruz County. He currently serves on the Judiciary and Federalism Committees and is the Co-Founder of the LGBT Caucus. In his first term, Hernandez has received praise for his work to find bipartisan solutions including passing several bills in committee and the House. Dedicated to working on innovative solutions to address Arizona's economy, Hernandez helped pass legislation to protect small business from frivolous lawsuits. In 2011, while working in the office of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, Hernandez took actions on January 8th with which he is credited with saving her life. That day and the aftermath drove him to advocate for Gun Violence Prevention at the state and national level, which he does to this day. Prior to serving in the legislature, Hernandez was elected to the Sunnyside Unified School District Governing board in November 2011.. Hernandez is running for re-election in 2018 to the state house. He will continue to fight for education funding, protections for marginalized communities, access to quality and affordable healthcare and an economy that works for all Arizonans.

I am an Eagle Scout and an Engineer. I will be proactive in solving problems that impact our district residents. I believe all elected officials are to be conducting themselves as "Representatives of The People". As by nature a problem-solver, I will defend and protect our rights which is a nonpartisan expectation. My past legislative activities include articulating 2016 Session's HB2050 Bill which would have amended ARS 41-1034 Declaratory Relief from unconstitutional state agency and state department judgments that intrude into our "Liberty". Our Constitution states "Liberty" as being defined as our wages, children, home and property. Having been an orphan and having lived in a third world country, I clearly know the difference between a world without freedom, liberty and opportunity! I am grateful to have this opportunity to meet with district residents and to have discussed many problem-solving ideas that will help to improve our day to day lives in our state. I look forward to rolling up my sleeves as we solve problems together through our state law making process! Go to ElectSizer.com to learn more about Anthony Sizer. God Bless and Thank You for supporting my candidacy!
