Paul Boyer
State Senator - District 20
Republican

I'm honored to serve you. When I campaigned as a conservative I meant it. I've received the Guardian of Small Business; Friend of the Family; Hero of the Taxpayer and Champion of the Taxpayer awards, and an "A" rating from the American Conservative Union. My priorities remain: protecting life, protecting taxpayers, job creation, improving education through increased classroom funding and increasing teacher pay, and keeping our children safe from online predators. These last two sessions we've passed real balanced budgets, cut taxes, increased funding for school facilities, dramatically increased teacher pay, rolled back job-killing regulations, and watched as Arizona became one of the top job-producing states in the country. I've supported efforts to secure our border (that means building a wall!), to stop ObamaCare, and to give parents a greater say in the education of their children. I'm proud of endorsements I've received from County Attorney Bill Montgomery, former US Senator Jon Kyl, and groups like Arizona Right to Life, the NRA, the Fraternal Order of Police, and many others, but the endorsement I want the most is yours! Please visit my website to learn more and never hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or comments.

Residents of District 20 deserve a State Senator like Doug Ervin, who will listen to their needs, represent them honestly, and fight against the short-sightedness and greed that is unfortunately prevalent in politics. As an experienced accountant, corporate tax auditor, and financial systems architect, he possesses the knowledge necessary to critically analyze budgets and understand their true impact on our state's economy. Moreover, exemplified through helping transform a small local business into an international firm, completing an Ironman triathlon, and tutoring 2nd-grade students in his free time, Doug understands the importance of hard work, perseverance, and patience. Doug's platform consists of three main pillars: restoring public education funding without burdening working families, protecting the environment through conscientious and inclusive legislation, and ensuring that all individuals are treated equally and respectfully, regardless of their identities. Through these goals, he hopes to contribute to tangible improvements in the lives of LD20 residents. The son of a teacher, Doug has called Arizona home since the age of three and enjoys backpacking, reading, and spending time with his family. He is grateful for your time and support. Vote Doug Ervin for State Senator.

I was raised by a single mother for a majority of my childhood. My mom demonstrated what it meant to work hard, and reminded my brothers and me of the importance of attaining an education. As I grew up, I learned my experience was not unique. That every day, there are numerous families in this situation, left in the margins, with their own story to tell. I realized my passion of helping others early on, I had the opportunity to work with families and individuals with disabilities during high school and throughout college. My experience working within the non-profit sector, being able to support families that relied on resources from not only organizations like the one I worked for, but also from the education system and the state. Many of these families were usually in need of more support from the institutions around them but were often not given the tools or resources to become self-supporting. I am tired of empty promises. I want to fight all of those families, like mine, the ones that are still falling through the cracks. The middle class, the working poor, the silenced and oppressed. It's time we take back our humanity.

Hi, my name is Dan Anderson and I'm running for the Arizona House of Representatives in District 20. As your representative in LD20, I will work effectively with both the public and all of our elected officials in both city and state governments to address problems throughout our district. I know how to do that. Only through teamwork can we improve the quality of our public schools, our public safety, create a better business environment for our local economy, and ensure our infrastructure is maintained, all of which helps to establish a better quality of life for our families. I'm committed to our community, and I'm committed to see it prosper. If you allow me the opportunity to serve, I will work hard every day to find practical solutions, and I'll always be responsive to you. I'm confident that by working together we'll be able to do great things for our community here in LD20. Thank you, Dan

As a Mom of two teenagers, I can speak for families when it comes to education. We need to concentrate on moving taxpayer dollars away from the administration and into the classroom. Arizona's statewide classroom dollar percentage in FY'17 was 53.7%- the lowest dollar percentage since the Auditor General began monitoring it in FY'01. As a children's advocate one of my main priorities is protecting the sanctity of human life. We should also never place our state budget at the disposal of the federal government. There has never been a federal program that delivered more or cost less than what was promised. I believe it is the height of fiscal irresponsibility to vote for a program if you don't know how much it will cost. Arizona can outcompete every state with lower taxes, modest regulations and a business-friendly environment. I am a firm believer in our constitutional rights like the right to bear arms. I will work with our Congressional delegation to ensure we secure our border and to end illegal immigration. I look forward to serving you and I humbly ask for your vote!

Residents of LD-20 deserve a strong advocate. Now is time to elect a representative with leadership experience and a track record of collaboration. We need solutions for problems facing Arizona families; underfunded education, health care, jobs and care for the environment. My role, as a certified public manager, provided me with comprehensive experience in Early Childhood Education, Healthcare, Behavioral Health, and Environmental Justice. I bring this to the table for you and your families. These are not partisan issues they are human issues. Working together we will find common ground; we will find solutions, we will succeed. As your representative, I will evaluate legislation based on three standards. -Is it good for the people in our district? -Are we identifying the core issue? -How will this legislation affect future generations? I am an advocate for teachers, counselors, therapist, and classified support staff. They all make up a safe and supportive educational environment. I will support legislation for fully funded schools. Our future depends on it. Successful people need good jobs, housing in safe communities, access to affordable health care, ability to access support systems when necessary, clean air, clean water, quality food and comprehensive health care. Together we are better.

I will fight for our children, our future citizens, to get the best education possible. Not just YOUR child. All of our children. I will fight for our healthcare, the one thing every single one of us needs, to be reasonably priced and cover you. Not just for YOU, but for all of us. I will fight for racial equality, because those who believe it already exists haven't spoken to someone from another race. Not just for them. But for all of us. I will fight for a livable wage, because it shouldn't take three jobs to raise a child. Not for us. But for them. I will fight for the homeless, because those in need who need help should be able to get it. I will fight for women...our mothers, sisters, daughters and wives' rights. Not for half of us. But for all of us. I will fight for the LGBTQ community, because they are Americans with the same freedoms as anyone else to be whomever they want to be. I will fight for our seniors, because taking care of those who once took care of us is a privilege and reflects our character.

Coming from a family of teachers, I'm a dedicated education advocate who considers students the top priority for Arizona and LD 20. I want to restore the $1.1 billion in cuts we've seen since the Recession. After placing us nearly last in per pupil spending, the Legislature needs to step up for schools. We need designated funding sources, not just promises, in the areas of safety, personnel, facilities, curriculum, and technology, including joint technical and career education (JTED and CTE) so students graduate ready to enter the workforce. There are thousands of small businesses in LD 20 and they are critically important. I want to ensure we have an environment where small businesses can thrive on a level playing field with big corporations, have access to R&D funding to grow and be able to find the employees with the skills they need. Finally, we need a transparent government and elected officials that are held accountable. We can start by ending dark money spending and requiring politicians to report any financial interests when advancing legislation. Let's work together to see that the needs of all Arizonans are met, our businesses thrive, and our government works.

Produce a balanced budget, protect our schools, create an economic environment where jobs can flourish, support law enforcement and first responders to keep our neighborhoods safe, and protect our Constitutional rights. In a nutshell, that's the job I promised I would do if elected and I have kept my promise. Our budget is balanced, we've passed increases in school funding and teacher pay funding, Arizona is a national leader in job growth, crime is down, and Arizona is #1 for 2ndAmendment rights and is a top-ranked state in regulatory and other freedoms. I have been awarded multiple awards like the Liberty Award, Friend of the Family Award and Hero of the Taxpayer Award. I continue to maintain a 100% attendance record, and I never forget who I work for. My wife and I love the West Valley and Arizona, I'm proud to serve as a Reserve Deputy and to do my part to protect and serve the people who live here. I ask for your vote so that I can continue to work hard on your behalf, listen to your opinions, and do my best for Arizona. Thank you!
