http://drkathyaz.com
Kathy's biggest inspiration for running for public office is her daughter. Kathy knows that the path we are on is not setting Arizona's children up for the opportunity rich future they deserve. Kathy believes that this future is only possible if we act to preserve our one shared planet, protect the rights of the most vulnerable, and fight for justice for families and within out communities. When elected, Kathy will act with compassion, putting social responsibility first. Kathy plans to fight for proactive family services, clean air and water, protection of our state's natural beauty, and for expanded disability, behavioral, and child healthcare.

Russell W. "Rusty" Bowers
State Representative - District 25
Republican
I am Russell "Rusty" Bowers. I am 65 years old, and raised by children of the depression who taught me to stand on my own feet, trust in God and go to work. I have a wonderful wife, seven children and 16 grandchildren, whom taught me that you will have wonderful success and trying challenges and all things give you experience...so you keep working and don't give up. I learned many different life-skills all of which have helped me over a 26 year involvement in the legislative process, including 13 years as a member. I have, and continue to carry leadership roles in committee and within the Republican caucus. I have been called a "renaissance man" with stone-age politics by the New Times, and "tough but fair" by opponents. I carry conservative credentials happily. I love and respect the institution of the legislature, I know it well and I use it to do good for the people of Arizona. I iisten,speak to truth and respect others. I serve honorably and will continue to do so with your support.

Marlene Hinton
State Representative - District 25
Republican
I am a Mesa native, wife (42 years) and mother of eight children and grandmother of 27. Families are not only the core unit and source of strength of society, they are also the source from which government derives just authority (Declaration of Independence). In addition, families are the creators of wealth the government consumes. Thus, it is the primary responsibility of legislators to foster and protect the source of money and power and strength which is the family. Every piece of legislation MUST be analyzed in terms of the effect it will have on ALL families. I earned a PhD in education at the same time three of my sons worked on theirs; a fourth son will soon finish his. A son-in-law also has a PhD. I strongly advocate for education but am concerned about the belief that money will solve school problems. In reality, the parents are the primary, most powerful teachers and the best predictors of academic success. Legislators must be cautious in assuming that depriving families of their hard-earned resources or depressing business opportunities through over-regulation will improve education. Strong families do that best! Dr. Marlene Ray Hinton

Johnny Martin believes strongly that officials are elected to serve the public. That's why Johnny has made opportunity for all, trust through truth, and united communities core values of his campaign. Fighting for the rights of marginalized Arizonans, empowering communities, and acting with honesty and humility are vital to upholding these values. When elected, Johnny plans to introduce legislation to end for-profit incarceration in Arizona, support expansion of nondiscrimination protections, defend accessibility rights and equal access for people with disabilities, and fight for competitive funding for wages and resource in public education.

Michelle Udall
State Representative - District 25
Republican
During my time in the legislature, I've done my best to represent the voice of the people I represent. Representing Mesa has been the service opportunity of a lifetime. Mesa is my lifelong home and our schools, public safety, and conservative values are personal to me. During this last term in the legislature I worked to get money into our local schools, supported a fiscally responsible budget, and worked to continue the pro-growth conservative policies that are growing our economy and creating jobs for our residents. If I'm re-elected and given the opportunity to continue to represent Mesa, I will continue to fight for our children, families, small businesses, and hard working taxpayers.
