Rebecca Rios
State Senator - District 27
Democratic
Arizona has been home to me and my family for 5 generations. I am committed to working hard to see Arizona thrive and to leave it a better State for my family and yours. As the AZ House of Representatives Democratic Leader, I lead the fight for increased funding for Arizona's school teachers and students, I secured 10 million dollars for opioid addiction treatment for the uninsured, led the fight against special interest tax breaks, voted to protect Kidscare, workers rights, women's access to healthcare, and instate tuition for DACA students. I fought against dark money buying our elections, voter suppression and discriminatory legislation aimed at LGBTQ and immigrant communities. My strong record of legislative experience and leadership has earned me endorsements by teachers, labor, firefighters, nurses, women's groups, public safety, child advocates, human rights and environmental groups. They know I will continue to be an outspoken fighter for a better quality of life for all Arizonans. I have been honored to represent the families and communities of LD27. I will continue to work with integrity and determination speaking out and taking the lead on issues that impact our communities. I would be honored to have your vote.

Talonya Adams
State Representative - District 27
Democratic
My name is Talonya Adams. I was born in Legislative District 27 (LD27). I am a mother, a first-generation college graduate, a small business owner and an attorney who has dedicated my career in law, policy and business to improve the lives of children and communities through education, increased access to opportunities and entrepreneurship. As I speak with LD27 residents, quality public education, living wage jobs, access to affordable quality health care, criminal justice reform and transportation infrastructure are among the most significant issues facing our community. Our district needs effective, efficient and fully funded public schools that offer an excellent education to all children, increased quality local jobs and business opportunities that yield organic job creation, small business ownership and supports entrepreneurship. Given the opportunity to be elected and serve, my top priorities will focus on strengthening our economy through greater investment in our public education system, preserving and extending access to affordable and QUALITY healthcare, school and community safety, equitable criminal justice reform and sustainable local hiring for transportation infrastructure and economic development. I thank you for your support and I ask for your vote.

Diego Rodriguez
State Representative - District 27
Democratic
A lifelong Democrat and successful attorney, Diego Rodriguez lives in Laveen and is the father of two children, a daughter, age 14 and a son, age 4. Diego owns his own law firm and he has dedicated his career to fighting for equity and justice for all in Arizona. His passion for LD27 stems from his belief that earning a seat in the state legislature is a great way to fight for working families, public education and school safety at this critical time in our history. The grandson of farm workers and son of a single mother, Diego made his way from Casper, Wyoming to the University of Notre Dame, where he earned his undergraduate degree in Finance. In 1992, he entered law school at the University of Arizona and immediately afterward entered public service as a prosecutor for the Pima County Attorney's unit in 1995. Diego spent 4 years as a prosecutor working on many different types of crimes including murder cases.

Diego wants to take honesty, integrity and a commitment to public service back to the state legislature.

Roberto Sanchez Garcia
State Representative - District 27
Democratic
Arizona has been my home for almost 30 years, with the past 17 of those in the South Mountain, Guadalupe and Laveen communities. I feel a kinship with my neighbors in LD 27 and understand the needs of our residents. I am passionate about helping to effect positive changes and growth within my community. Many of my LD27 neighbors have voiced that education, healthcare and business development are major priorities for them, and I will fight for improvements in these areas." Education - I will advocate for a stronger education system, and to place higher value on our teachers and educational support personnel. I will work closely with teachers to learn how we can better support them in their daily efforts. A competitive salary is crucial to ensure we can attract and retain top talent, but there are many more daily barriers teachers encounter that hinder their success with their students. We need to do a better job of identifying and overcoming those barriers and working toward innovative improvements. I will represent all of our students, and fight for fairness and a quality education that meets the individual needs of each child.
