Wendy Garcia
State Senator - District 22
Democratic
http://wendygarciaforazsenate.org
Wendy Garcia founded Indivisible Surprise and helped organize Save Our Schools in the Northwest Valley. She is an experienced radio news director, fearless activist, grass roots leader, and mother. She knows the importance of protecting vulnerable people's rights. Special interest groups corrupt Arizona with too much money. Politicians don't pay attention to everyday people. To restore democracy Wendy will protect voter rights and support publicly funded elections (as a "Clean Elections" candidate). U.S. education statistics rank Arizona's schools in the bottom 10%. To improve student and school achievement, Wendy will fight for more resources and better qualified teachers. Strong public schools protect democracy for "we the people" by teaching citizenship and tolerance. High quality public schools also educate students with effective job skills. Healthcare must be made affordable and accessible to everyone in Arizona. Wendy supports expanding Medicaid type insurance in Arizona with prescription coverage included. Arizona's economy relies upon Cattle, Cotton, Citrus, Copper, and Climate. To increase jobs and grow the Northwest Valley, Wendy advocates for developing Construction, Conservation, and Computer industries. Wendy will serve "by and for the people" of District 22 to restore democracy, improve public schools, expand healthcare coverage, and increase good paying jobs.

It was just a few years ago that you first elected me to the State House. I wanted to serve this great state and look after the taxpayers and families that live here. What a journey it has been. I have been honored to serve as Chairman of the Banking and Insurance Committee, I was elected Majority Whip by my peers, and this year I was asked to step up as Chairman of the Appropriations Committee and guide our state's budget to passage. Still, I remember that my mission is to serve you all and so I continue to focus on improving our economy and attracting jobs, strengthening the family unit, protecting our state's sovereignty, and restoring our Constitutional rights. I advocate for secure borders and I have a 100% pro-life and pro-2nd Amendment record. I have earned both the "Friend of the Family" award and the "Hero of the Taxpayer" award. I work for you and I promise to reward your support with a continued commitment to limited government and effective representation. I am running as a team with Ben Toma and Frank Carroll and know them to be outstanding conservatives as well. We ask for your vote!

Clair Van Steenwyk
State Senator - District 22
Republican

Van's been asked to run for office since the ‘80s, however believed Developing Businesses and Christian Outreach-plus political activism-were "enough." Van's was challenged by his Listeners and TEA Party Members in 2012, to come out from behind the Microphone and run for U.S. Senate against Rep. Flake in 2012. Van and Jean discussed it and decided to run as a "Christian Constitutional Conservative Activist Republican." Knowing that Flakes compromising the Constitution and Freedoms isn't acceptable, most Career Politicians and Bureaucrats do just that, and must be exposed and stopped. Van, though not winning the race, brought issues to the voters exposing the contrast between most politicians' Records vs. Rhetoric. Van believes this will help others to run while exposing how corrupt the system is; he also believes the system can still be fixed by Citizens willing to take the Heat! "We don't need career politicians who surrender to the GOP Establishment"”you must never negotiate Our God-Granted Rights away, nor limit them! Our Founders very clearly stated, to give up a little Freedom for Security will soon leave you with Neither." Time to Drain the Political Swamp in AZ! God Bless You All; Clair VAN Steenwyk

Arizona schools rank among the worst in the country. Strong communities begin with quality schools. As your senator, I will continue the fight for appropriate funding for Arizona's schools and competitive wages for our state's teachers, as well as debt-free college. Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), Arizona's Medicaid program, is a federal healthcare program funded jointly by both federal and state governments. I'll work to expand AHCCCS and to protect KidsCare and ALTCS, (programs for children and those needing long-term care.) Our mass transit system needs expanding to accommodate our ever-growing communities. I'll focus on improving transportation options in our state and introducing municipal broadband to enhance technology accessibility and reduce prices for consumers. I'll work with the Senate on laws that encourage water conservation and building with eco-friendly materials. I'm Brianna Westbrook, and I want to earn your vote. I'll honor my promises as I fight for women's rights and the rights of veterans, Arizonans with disabilities and all members of our society. I've rolled up my sleeves, and I'm ready to work toward a brighter future for all Arizonans.

Matt Bullock
State Representative - District 22
Republican

I am campaigning for the AZ House of Representatives to be a leader in finding long-term, stable funding for our schools so we aren't having a struggle every year. Having been a business owner for 27 years, I understand and will work towards creating a robust small business economy which will also attract larger businesses, resulting in a lowering of everyone's taxes. I will also bring technology and cyber-security expertise to the Legislature, which I believe will be one of the 5 most important topics for the years to come. I am a strong believer in ensuring a stable water supply for the next 100 years and understand that all parties must be on the same page to ensure that stable water supply. I will be a strong voice to properly resource and support our law enforcement and first responders as a growing State and economy need to be correctly protected.

I'm honored to be running with David Livingston and Ben Toma as your Proven Conservative Team. Both are award-winning champions of the taxpayer and families and I share their values and commitment to low taxes, a balanced budget, increased classroom funding, life, liberty, border security, school choice, and protecting the family. I spent my career in the automotive industry, on the mechanical and technological side, so my heart is with the working men and women of this country who want their government to do its job and to otherwise leave them alone to live in peace. Within the GOP, I've served as Precinct Captain, State Delegate, District 2nd Vice Chairman and then 1stVice Chairman. I was also President of the Sun City West Republican Club. I'm a member of the NRA, AZCDL, Surprise Tea Party, and also work with Americans for Prosperity and the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association.You get two votes for State House and I hope you'll cast them for me and Ben Toma so we can work as a team to advance our conservative ideals. I'd be honored to earn your vote and hope you will support our conservative team. Thank you.

Valerie Harris
State Representative - District 22
Democratic
http://www.harrisforaz.com/
Valerie is a proud product of Arizona public schools and an Arizona resident for more than 50 years. Her children were born and raised in the valley. They are buying first homes, getting married, and starting families here. Valerie worked with small businesses, mid-sized and large corporations during a successful 37-year career with American Express. After listening and understanding her clients' goals and challenges, she helped them manage their card programs. After retiring, Valerie joined the Deer Valley Unified School District. She knows about education and knows corporate expectations for an educated workforce. Valerie sees the damage corporate tax cuts and privatization have done to public education and other state institutions. Current Arizona leadership values corporate and special interests not the needs of the working families. Arizona needs change. Valerie will work for intelligent, sustainable public education funding, a fair tax code that no longer favors corporations over working families, elimination of private prisons, expansion of solar power and green energy, and protection of the individual rights and freedoms of all Arizonans. All LD22 voters deserve representatives who will listen to their concerns and champion their causes. Please "Vote Val."

Teri Sarmiento

After losing their home, their small business and all of their savings because of medical bills, a married couple was forced to divorce in the golden years of their lives. They'd been together for two decades but because of bureaucratic nonsense, the cost of the husband's nursing home care would only be fully covered if he were a single man. So, just like that, a sacred bond had to be dissolved so that one half of a couple could live out his remaining years with a little more dignity. This is a true story that happened right here in our area. I know this, because it's the story of my aunt and uncle. This is not how it's supposed to be. I'm running because I know you have stories like this. We live in a part of the Valley that often gets forgotten about. What we need is new leadership so that our stories can be told. Ask my family and they'll tell you; I'm not afraid to speak my mind and to stand up for what's right, to stand up for you. I'm a first-time candidate who knows we can do better. Let's get our House in order.

Ben Toma
State Representative - District 22
Republican
https://www.bentoma.com/
I'm a husband, father, small-business owner, and committed conservative. I spent a term on the Peoria City Council because I disliked how the special interests ran the city at the expense of the people who lived there. When I was asked if I was willing to be appointed to fill the vacancy left by Phil Lovas I thought that the opportunity to fight for conservative values at the state level was important enough to say yes. And I'm glad I did! We have cut taxes, balanced the budget, increased classroom funding and teacher pay, reduced regulations, and we have one of the strongest economies and job markets in the nation. I have a 100% pro-Constitution voting record and, as the father of five girls, am absolutely committed to protecting our 2ndAmendment rights. I'm honored to be endorsed by Sen. Judy Burges, former State Treasurer (and Trump COO) Jeff DeWit, former State Representative Phil Lovas, County Supervisor Clint Hickman, and others. I'm also proud to be running as a team with David Livingston and Frank Carroll. We will work well together as a team, protecting taxpayers and limited government. We ask for your vote and thank you for your time!
