Sally Ann Gonzales
State Senator - District 3
Democratic
http://sallyforsenate2018.com/
Legislative District #3 deserves an experienced and strong advocate at the State Senate. Representative SALLY ANN GONZALES has the experience and know-how to get things done, she co-sponsored HB-2421 and SB-1235 both signed into law this session. Gonzales has served LD3 with integrity and candor, for eight years. As a former classroom teacher and "RedforED" supporter she has firsthand knowledge of what the teachers and parents are demanding; full education funding for district schools, competitive salaries and benefits for teachers and all support staff. Full-time counselors and nurses at each school and smaller classroom size are a must. As a grandmother to 25 she wants what our "Marchforourlives" students want, meaningful gun violence prevention legislation. That includes, background checks and a ban on Bump Stocks. Health Care for all and access to it, is a priority to her. As the majority continue to diminish the safety net for Arizonans she'll continue to fight for working families, seniors and the disabled. It's been her honor to serve as your State Representative and with your help she looks forward to continuing the good fight on these and other priorities in the Senate.

It would be a privilege to represent you and our community in the Arizona State Senate. I am a third generation native of Tucson who has lived in this District most of my life. I began my professional career in banking and community lending, then moved to public service in Pima County where I was able to serve my community more directly as the Housing Program Manager until my retirement. I continue to volunteer on several community boards dedicated to housing, healthcare, cultural heritage, historic preservation, and social justice. As your Senator, I will represent you by working to bring people together around critical issues facing our community including safe sustainable housing and neighborhoods, jobs that support our families, high-quality public education, our environment, and healthcare for everyone. My pledge is to keep you informed in a spirit that brings everyone together. The changes and protections we all seek in Arizona won't be easy to achieve, but I am a problem solver who gets things done, and when we all work together, we can build consensus solutions, and change Arizona, so we will all benefit. Democracy works best when we do it together. I respectfully ask for your vote.

Olivia Cajero Bedford
State Representative - District 3
Democratic
It's been an honor to serve my constituents for 16 years and I'm proud of the 45 years the Cajero family has been in public service. Following in the footsteps of my parents, Reps. Bernardo 'Nayo" and Carmen Cajero, it's been my mission to understand and appreciate my constituents, just as they did. As ranking Democratic member of the powerful Senate Appropriations Committee, I challenged budget cuts made to education and transportation funding and actively combatted the the financial harm done the Republican majority. I served on the Commerce and Workforce Development and Joint Legislative Budget Committees, and Joint Committee on Capitol Review and Rules, so I understand the legislative process . I am a hard-working advocate for my constituents, demonstrated by endorsements and high ratings I've earned from groups over the years: Arizona Education Association, Arizona List, Fraternal Order of Police, Sierra Club, several unions and Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild who said "I have always been able to count on Olivia to vote for Tucson's interest. Her knowledge is invaluable in helping all of us...." Experience and knowledge are critical to navigating the legislative process. It is a privilege to serve and I'm honored be fighting for what's right!

Andrés Cano
State Representative - District 3
Democratic
http://www.AndresforArizona.com
When I became a first-generation college graduate, I knew I'd have to ensure that others like me had the same opportunity. I'm Andrés Cano. I'm 26, Latino, a progressive Democrat, and the product of a single mom who taught me to never give up. I want Arizonans to know that we'll fight for them. Our teachers deserve more pay, we need more dollars in our classrooms, and college needs to be accessible and affordable again. Instead of spending billions to put people behind bars, I want Arizonans to have a second chance. Instead of giving your money away to corporations and the wealthy, I believe in tax breaks for working people like us. We can create good-paying jobs by fixing Arizona's crumbling infrastructure. We can preserve our quality of life by protecting our environment. We can help seniors, children, and women by ensuring access to quality health care. I believe in us, and I ask that you believe in me as your State Representative. Learn more about me at AndresforArizona.com. My personal cell is 520-301-6162. Endorsed by: Raul Grijalva, Richard Elías, Sharon Bronson, Ramon Valadez, Macario Saldate, Olivia Cajero Bedford, and all of Tucson's City Council. Most important endorsement: YOU!
