Otoniel "Tony" Navarrete
State Senator - District 30
Democratic
https://www.tonynavarrete.com/
I am running for the State Senate to continue serving the community I love in Arizona's legislature. As a young man, I became active in my church, Neighborhood Ministries, and worked to organize people in low-income communities so we could fight for affordable housing, affordable health care and good-paying jobs. I have worked in the non-profit sector on these issues and I have made these issues my focus over the last couple years in the state legislature. Improving our schools and bringing good-paying jobs to the West Valley will remain my top priorities. In addition to championing a tangible policy agenda, I remain committed to our neighborhood families and next generation of young leaders by spearheading internships that focus on our neighborhood youth. In addition, I will stay committed to addressing the ills of our criminal justice systems and revamp our criminal codes for the twenty first century. La inversií³n en nuestros estudiantes y educacií³n, la creacií³n de trabajos que pagan bien, la proteccií³n de cuidado de salud asequible, y apoyo para una reforma migratoria seran areas continuadas de importancia para mi. - Otoniel "Tony" Navarrete

Bill Brotherton
State Representative - District 30
Democratic

I'm a product of LD 30 where I've lived for 44 years. As a 3rd generation native & father of two children who were born & raised in LD 30, I understand the importance of having experienced, progressive leadership in the State House to safeguard our children's futures. I previously served in both the House & Senate for our community. In 2007, Gov. Napolitano appointed me to the State Superior Court where I served for over 10 years. As one of 7 children growing up in our district, strong public schools were our ticket to a better life. I graduated from Cortez H.S. & Glendale Community College. My wife, an immigrant, and I graduated from Grand Canyon College. She was the first person in her family to get a college degree. I went on to get my law degree at the U of A. Both of our children are also products of the public education system and I want to ensure that the quality public education they received is there for future generations. We need experienced leadership to guarantee full funding of education, universally affordable health care, and public services to combat problems of homelessness that impact our neighborhoods.

Arizona deserves leadership that sets the stage for a prosperous environment and always puts the needs of our communities first. I am committed to fighting for our working families and to increase our standard of living. We need to sustainably fund our public education system that builds critical thinkers and prepares our students for the future. We need higher wages and stronger jobs right here in our district. We need to work towards a universal healthcare system and assure that we have access to quality and affordable healthcare. We need to invest in our community groups and after-school programs that fortify our families and promote safer schools and neighborhoods. We need to combat corruption and get big money out of politics; I am proud to be the only Clean Elections candidate running in this race. It is imperative that we have representation that has experienced the challenges our communities face and that can offer concrete solutions to strengthen our quality of life. This is why I am running to represent the district that raised me. I would be honored to have your vote this election and to be your voice at the Capitol.

Friend, colleague and respected public servant are just a few things Robert Meza has been called over the years. But he also is a proud, third-generation Phoenician who has represented the good people of District 30 in the Arizona State Legislature. Senator Meza attended Montebello in the Alhambra District, Bourgade Catholic High School and graduated from the University of Notre Dame. He has lived in the district for 33 years. Meza is running for the State House. The Capitol Times for several years has nominated Sen. Meza "Best Democrat" for the principals he stands for: Pay raises for teachers, smaller class sizes and safe neighborhoods. Meza stopped an unjust proposal to reduce Grand Canyon University's taxes and transfer a $36 million tax burden to local homeowners and prevented predatory lenders from invading our communities. He is a staunch supporter of the Red for Ed movement and is a board member of the YMCA, Phoenix Theatre, and Jewish Family Children Services. Meza is endorsed by: Professional Firefighters of AZ, Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema, Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, Phoenix Councilman Danny Valenzuela, Honorable Debbie McCune-Davis, Rep. Lela Alston, Rep. Cesar Chavez, Honorable Art Hamilton, Senator Catherine Miranda, and United Food and Commercial Workers.

Gary Spears
State Representative - District 30
Republican
I'm not a politician, just a regular Joe like most of you. I am the A/V Technical Director for a church, and a conservative Christian who believes the government should work for us, not hinder us. I want to protect all our freedoms including our first amendment, second amendment, and religious freedoms. I also want to protect the unborn who deserve a chance to live, not to have that choice taken away from them. For too long our district has been represented by Democrats who believe their job is to vote "NO" on bills. They are so partisan they get left out of the process. This is bad for our State and our district. When our district has challenges, our own Representatives aren't helping us because they're too busy being political. When they do have the chance to make a difference, they vote "NO" because they put party over what's best for us. If it's a good bill I will vote for it. If it's bad, I will not. We need someone who will work with everyone to provide safe neighborhoods, strong schools, and better jobs. That's why I'm running. I ask for your vote and your support. Thank you!
