""Legislation Should Be About Good Policy and Not About Politics" Living in the Prescott Area most of my life, it's my honor to have served LD1 in the House and currently as the President of the Arizona Senate.

This legislation has resulted in over 40 legislative awards including Az. Chamber of Commerce Legislator of the Year; Az Capitol Times Legislator of the Year in Public Policy; Champion Az League of Cities & Towns; Golden Apple Award and Hero of the Taxpayer.

Judy Burges
State Representative - District 1
Republican
https://www.electburges.com/
For ten years I served in the Arizona Legislature, where I won numerous awards from conservative, pro-family, pro-2ndAmendment, and pro-taxpayer groups. I was a top-ranked conservative who said NO to the big-spending establishment. Then I returned to the private sector where I have enjoyed playing with my grand-kids and working in the community. With two open seats in the House, I was approached by a great number of people who wanted a real conservative choice, someone they could count on to do the right thing. They asked me to run again and I agreed because I can feel our great State drifting to the left, thanks to an increasingly aggressive Democratic party, and some Republicans who would rather work with the left than fight them. Liberals want to increase our taxes and take our freedoms "“ I won't let that happen. You get two votes for State Representative and I'd be honored if you would cast one of them for me. You have lots of choices, but only ONE with an actual record of fighting for secure borders, low taxes, the Constitution, and YOU! God bless our President and the United States of America!

Ed Cocchiola
State Representative - District 1
Republican
I love Arizona! I've lived here since 1957 and to me, Arizona represents beauty, freedom, and prosperity. It is a state filled with hard working folks who care about their state, their families, and their children. I respect and admire the men and women in our armed forces and want only the best for them. The same for our vets who served to ensure our freedoms. We have two open State House seats and I'm running to give a voice to the everyday hardworking, God-loving Americans who want their government to work for them. I want lower taxes, less regulation and more freedom. I will vote for the best possible education for our kids and grandkids, and for law enforcement and our first responders. Our state is being overrun with liberals moving here from failing states and they're bringing their lousy politics with them. Now more than ever we need conservatives who will speak truth and champion our party's ideals. Please cast one of your votes for Ed Cocchiola and I will not let you down!

Quang Nguyen
State Representative - District 1
Republican
https://quangforarizona.com/
I'm a proud Trump Republican who believes in secure borders (which means a real wall!), a strong economy, low taxes, safe neighborhoods, and defending liberty. I'm pro-gun, pro-Constitution, pro-life, pro-school choice, and pro-Arizona. My story is the typical American dream. I'm a LEGAL immigrant who was rescued by America at a young age, I taught myself English, worked my way through college, then went to work for Northrop Corporation, helping to keep our country safe by working on programs like the F-20 and F-18 fighters. Nearly twenty years ago my wife and I fled increasingly socialist California and settled in Arizona, where we have raised our family, started a business, and got involved with our wonderful community. We instilled in our kids the values of education, work ethic, and national pride. My son graduated from the University of Portland and my daughter is a Midshipman at the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis. With the nest empty, I've answered the call to give back as your State Representative. If you want a rock-solid conservative who will take his oath to defend our laws and our Constitution and mean it, then I ask for one of your two votes. Thank you!

State Representative - District 1
Republican
https://www.stevensensmeier.com/
From an early age I was a Republican, declaring at age 3 that Hillary Clinton was a witch and proudly exclaiming that Newt Gingrich was the Speaker of the House. That always shocked quite a few people, but as a fourth generation Republican activist I've always felt that it's just in my blood. After graduating from Prescott High School and earning my Eagle Scout Award, I attended Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University where I received my degree in Global Security and Intelligence Studies. While there I joined the College Republicans eventually serving as President. I also served as the Vice-Chairman and Chairman of the Arizona Federation of College Republicans. I've been involved in local politics for more than 10 years. I volunteered for my first campaign during the 2008 Presidential Election and have volunteered or worked on more than a dozen campaigns since. I've also worked as a Field Director for the Arizona Republican Party as well as for the Martha McSally for Senate Campaign.

My name is Daniel Hernandez Jr. and I am your Democratic State Representative covering Southeast Pima County and Santa Cruz County.

I fought for and was able to secure over $3 million in urgently needed funds to keep the doors open of the Santa Cruz Valley Regional Hospital in Green Valley during the current crisis. I also fought and was able to secure $1 million for the Holy Cross Hospital in Nogales. In 2019 I was able to secure $20 million for school counselors and social workers at our public schools.

Deborah McEwen
State Representative - District 2
Republican
https://mcewen4az.godaddysites.com/
As an elected representative, it is one's duty to: protect your constitutional rights, represent local district interests, and to scrutinize the work of government for accountability as part of checks and balance. A representative can also draft, introduce and vote on legislation. It is NOT a representative's sole duty to raise revenue through taxes or seek federal subsidies that indebt our state. However, some do because it is easier than finding solutions to problems such as education funding, employment availability, healthcare, poverty and hunger. For too long, representatives have believed their duty is to introduce legislation and make more rules and regulations which restrict your freedoms and create debt. It's not a contest of who passes the most legislation or who gets the most community awards. Representatives are defenders of your civil rights and guardians of constitutional rights for every American. As a Conservative and Constitutional Republican, I will defend the right of every child to have school choice, for Americans to freely practice their choice of religion and follow their convictions. I support our veterans, law enforcement and strong border control. I support fair trade and immigration policies that keep families safe and together.

I am a clean elections candidate for the Arizona House of Representatives, Legislative District 2. Upon graduating from Nogales High School in 1989 I enlisted in the U.S. Army and later served in the middle east with First Cavalry Division during Operation Desert Storm. Using my GI Bill, in 1995 I graduated from the U of A. In 1999, I graduated from the Sandra Day O'Conner College of Law at ASU, and moved to the rural community of Rio Rico, Arizona. For the past 20 years I have been practicing law in southern Arizona.

Since 2009, I have managed my law office in Nogales, Arizona specializing in Immigration and International Law. As a legislator for the Arizona State House of Representatives, Legislative District 2, I will aggressively advocate for innovative economic development opportunities for southern Arizona, public education funding for our youth, life-long transformative learning for adults, improved health care for our seniors, and transition assistance for Veterans. Southern Arizona will Wholeheartedly Persevere! Con Ganas!

Billy Peard
State Representative - District 2
Democratic
http://www.BillyPeard.com
Even before COVID-19, Arizona was in crisis. We ranked near last place on almost every measure of well-being. When I grew up in Arizona, our public schools ranked 34th out of 50 states. Today, we're 46th. Legislators are to blame. Legislators decide whose roads get paved, whether to conserve our water, and how much our teachers earn. Our legislators are responsible for rebuilding an economy devastated by COVID-19. Sending Democrats to Phoenix who merely vote the ""right" way is not enough to improve things. We need leaders who will act boldly. Unlike my opponents Andrea Dalessandro and Daniel Hernandez, I am not a career politician. I am not running for prestige or for position. I am running to pursue real solutions to real challenges. I have plans on my website: www.BillyPeard.com. Unlike the President, I understand the Constitution. As a former ACLU attorney, I sued the Trump Administration. As someone with no health insurance, I know the stress of living through a pandemic without protection. As a young adult with $130,000 in student loans, I understand the feeling of endless debt. I will carry these experiences with me as your representative.

Sally Ann Gonzales
State Senator - District 3

I am Senator Sally Ann Gonzales. It's been an honor to serve my LD3 constituents for the past 10 years. My mission has been to advocate and protect our most vulnerable citizens; our children and elders. Now more than ever will this be most crucial, as our country and state go through these uncertain times and then start the recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic. I will continue to work to provide a safety-net for all our citizens impacted by Covid-19, in areas of health, employment loss and the disruption of our children's education. Fulling funding our public schools while improving the working conditions for our dedicated teachers is a must. I am also committed to expanding vocational opportunities and upgrading our workforce by funding and supporting programs like JTED. It is essential that our three universities/community colleges be recognized, treated and funded as engines of economic development in Arizona. In closing, clean air and water are essential to the well-being of our citizenry therefore, Arizona must have strong laws to ensure the protection and improvement of our environment. To further my work on these causes, I humbly ask for your continued support on August 4, 2020.

http://www.AndresforArizona.com
Hi! I'm Andres Cano, your current State Representative. I'm a 27-year-old progressive Democrat, and a first-generation college graduate who was raised by a single mom. I ran for office because I was tired of Arizona making headlines for all the wrong reasons. For example: our state is last in K-12 per-pupil spending, we spend more money sending people to prison annually than on our entire university system, affordable housing isn't attainable, and our environment is more at risk than ever before. I've spent the last two years holding Governor Ducey and my GOP colleagues accountable; they simply refuse to accept reality. We deserve better- and that's why I'm running for re-election. As we recover from the COVID-19 crisis, we must embrace an Arizona that lifts up working families and small businesses. With your support, I'll continue advocating for high-paying jobs, a strong economy, more teacher pay, increased classroom spending, criminal justice reform, infrastructure repairs, and expanded health care. I humbly ask for your vote to be re-elected as your State Representative. Learn more about me at AndresforArizona.com. My personal cell is 520-301-6162.

Javier Soto
State Representative - District 3
Democratic
I was born and raised in Southern Arizona and I feel the best social program in the world is a good job. I believe every worker deserves an opportunity to succeed. This begins with fair pay, quality education, and healthcare. We all deserve equal pay for equal work and the ability to balance work and family life. As a union organizer, I've learned what matters is not your name or who you're related to but what you can get done. I have also learned we get more done when we work together rather than when we fight each other. However, we have to be prepared to take on tough fights. I'm ready to fight for you. My number one priority is the quality of life in Arizona. In my current job, I fight every day for better wages, healthcare, and a safe work environment. I would like to take my skills as a union organizer to fight for all of Arizona. I will be a strong voice in the legislature for working families and union values.

District 4 needs a representative who will prioritize your interests, someone with deep roots in the district. Our economy is powered by both small businesses and agriculture.

With 30+ years of experience in education, rising from teacher to superintendent to construction supervisor to consultant, I have much to contribute to Arizona's educational crisis. Having a Doctorate in Education - Curriculum & Instruction; along with a Master of Science, Construction Management; a Master of Arts, Supervision & Administration; and Bachelor of Arts, Vocational Education means that I can relate to the struggles of the unskilled worker or the college graduate, the administrator wrestling a budget or the electrician wrestling with new city codes; the management of people and the management of materials. With a lifetime of experience, now is the time to capitalize on my experience and credentials to benefit the community. My top priorities are education; quality of life such as democratic participation, access to health care, a safe-clean environment, living wage jobs, affordable housing; reducing mass incarceration so that Arizona is Number One in Education not Incarceration. I bring my most important values of honesty & integrity to the issues in my district: water policy, roads and infrastructure, and stable employment. I currently serve as the Ranking Democrat on the Land & agriculture Committee; also, a member of the Education, State & International Affairs Committees.

Sonny Borrelli
State Senator - District 5
Republican
As bad as our Federal Government has been, our Republican lead State Government has been the opposite "“ we've been cutting taxes, balancing our budgets, building up a rainy-day fund, growing jobs, looking after our military bases and veterans, and increasing school spending and teacher pay. Up until a few months ago Arizona was a national leader in job growth and population growth because people wanted to get out of failing states like New York and California and come to a great run state like Arizona. Of course, it helps that we are the #1 state for gun rights, the #1 pro-life state, and one of the top states for regulatory freedom. Now we face a long road back, thanks to the Wuhan Virus, but I am confident that what made Arizona a success before will help us lead the American comeback. With your continued support, I will continue working hard to deliver more success for our district and state. Thank you in advance for your vote and please let me know how I can better serve you.

As a fifth generation Arizonan, I have deep roots in the heart of rural Arizona's Legislative District 6. I understand the unique issues and challenges of rural Arizona. I understand the sacrifices small business owners make to survive in rural Arizona. I understand the challenges of raising a family in rural Arizona.

In addition, I am running to continue to serve as your Senate's Education Chairman, promoting strong educational opportunities for Arizona's children. My primary opponent, whose residence and business are in Tempe, does not understand or care about the unique issues of rural Arizona and knows nothing about Arizona's educational challenges. Legislative District 6 needs a tough-minded, independent-thinking, and common-sense representative, and I am that person. I stand on my voting record. I will always support the Second Amendment, border security, pro-life and free markets. I will always uphold the role of limited government. I will always stand for America's founding principles.

The Rim country needs a strong advocate at the legislature where our concerns as rural Arizonans are easily lost in the shuffle. I'm proud to have served you in the state legislature and hope that my hard work has earned me your continued support. I love being able to have effected positive change for our district and our state. The hard work has paid off as more and more companies choose Arizona as the place to relocate. I have enjoyed working to secure additional funding for our local community colleges; taking care of our veterans; helping our first responders; funding our transportation/infrastructure needs. I served as Chair. of Land, Agriculture, Rural Affairs committee; Vice-Chairman of Energy, Environment Natural Resources; Chairman of Rural Caucus. The role of the government is not to create jobs, rather to facilitate a business environment in which job creation may flourish. To that end, we should consider reducing the burden of unnecessary regulations on business and ensure a well-educated and prepared workforce inventory for building a strong state economy coupled with the conservation of our quality of life in Arizona. Thank you for your continued support and allowing me to serve.

I am a conservative and lifelong republican that advocates of the 2nd Amendment, defender of the Pro-life fight, affordable women's healthcare, and a leader in criminal justice reform keeps our communities and families safe. As an Arizona State Representative, it is my sworn responsibility to ensure parents-maintained their school choice rights, protect Arizonans from big government and out of control spending, which leads to increased taxes. It is imperative to the future of our children that teachers receive the respect and dignity of real pay raises, bonuses, and performance-based incentives. By advocating for rural development programs that generate jobs support ranchers and creates revenue, with this economic prosperity is within reach. Investing in Northern Arizona infrastructure, protecting our forest, and developing agriculture creates job growth and financial stability. Our ranchers and farmers are vital to our survival; they generate goods and products that drive our revenue and fuel our economy to record levels of success. Veterans deserve the very best our state can offer; innovative approaches of healthcare choices are owed to them. It's an honor to serve every one of you. As your LD6 representative, I work for you because I answer to you.

My family has lived in Northern Arizona for four generations. My grandfather moved his family to Flagstaff in the 1940s to work as a lumberjack. I still live here with my daughter in the house he built. I first ran for office because the local government wasn't listening to the people they represented, and for the last 12 years I've had the great pleasure of public service. I've seen people come together to support each other, to support our schools, churches, and institutions, and to create home-grown solutions to local issues. Together, we brought a Veteran's Home to Flagstaff, helped incubate small businesses, funded after school care, and expanded library hours. I've seen education funding in Arizona fall to 49th place. I've seen small business owners fight obstacles to bring their dreams to fruition. I've seen the legislature pass legislation that prevents communities from solving their own problems. This is why I'm running for the Arizona State House. Our families deserve quality schools. Our small businesses need support to help them grow. Our cities and towns need the freedom to make their own decisions. Together we can preserve the spirit and character of rural Arizona-because we, too, are Arizona!

Thank you to Arizona's LD7 for your support! I am currently your senator-elect for my third term in the Arizona Senate as the state's first Native American woman senator. I have had the honor of formerly serving in the state House of Representatives in the Fifty-first Legislature from 2013 to 2015. I am committed to the future of Arizona, to preserve the best of our state while working to make it better. I am committed to public education for rural Arizona. Arizona's K-12 and post-secondary funding are imperative to creating a future opportunity for our children. Protecting our environment is key to my proactive participation as a mother, community member, and leader. I am committed to protecting our environment for future generations. Arizona needs to create better water conservation policies and transition policies to create a greener energy future. We must support small businesses and attract good employers to Arizona that will create a better economic future for families and our communities. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown weaknesses in how Arizona plans to safeguard all Arizonians: public health, economic policies, homelessness, agriculture, transportation, communication, and public safety.

http://cookarizona.com
Everyone campaigns as a conservative, well my RECORD is 100% pro-2nd Amendment, pro-Life, pro-Constitution, and pro-Taxpayer. I know preserving and expanding freedom is my most solemn responsibility. It's just my second term but I'm keeping my promises. I'm a strong voice for rural Arizona, from areas of rapid growth like San Tan Valley to the smaller towns and communities too often forgotten by Maricopa County legislators. I'm protecting taxpayers and keeping our budget balanced, increasing school funding and teacher pay, and improving our transportation and water infrastructure, notably accelerating the completion of Highway 24 and developing the North/South corridor through Pinal County. As the only rancher in the Legislature, I'm involved in most issues dealing with ranching, agriculture, and farming. Fighting for what's right has made me the target of really ugly lies and attacks, but I won't be scared off. I love watching President Trump fighting the swamp and he inspires me to do the same. There are too many politicians at the State Capitol and not enough of us regular folks who do the jobs that make Arizona work. On behalf of my awesome wife Diana and our amazing kids, thank you for your support and continued trust!

I worked most of my career in rural, under served communities like the ones I hope to represent. My patients were migrants who worked the field or pregnant teens who were scared and needed support. In emergency rooms I saw patients who could not afford their insulin nor see a dentist. I saw how hard working people struggled to afford and access the care they needed. After I retired I knew, that as a state legislator, I could still make a difference in the lives of people in my district and state. Arizona needs legislators who understand the complex world of healthcare and can speak with authority, make pragmatic decisions and craft laws that will benefit children, families and people in need. Government should serve the people ,not just big business or give special interest tax breaks. I will work for fully funded public education, charter school reform, job training programs, a living wage for everyone, equal rights,and access to healthcare everyone needs. I believe in ethics and accountability. I have always lived by this code of conduct. I will work for you and your family.

Three issues have repeated come up - education, jobs, and public safety. I have made working on these issues my number one priority at the legislature. I will continue to work to make our communities safe through adequate police and fire protection, continue my efforts to improve educational opportunities for all and to get better teacher pay and more resources into the classroom. I have received a lot of recognition for playing an important role in putting policies in place that attract jobs to rural Arizona.

As a two-term Legislative District 9 Arizona State Representative and current Arizona State Senator in the minority party, Victoria Steele knows how to ""work across the aisle" to get things done for Arizona. Victoria co-authored a bill creating a task force to investigate missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls with a signing ceremony in the Historic Capitol building. Out of the 300-plus bills signed into law, eight were Democratic-sponsored bills and one was Victoria's bill to help sexual assault victims get needed restraining orders. It passed unanimously. As a member of the Senate Water and Agriculture Committee, she was involved in passing the Drought Contingency Plan by the deadline. Victoria helped to pass a Republican bill giving the survivors of child rape until age 30 to sue in civil court, also giving those victims that were time-barred and past the statute of limitations dates a 1-year window. Now, she is asking Arizona voters to re-elect her to the Arizona Senate to continue to work to continue the work that still needs to be done and a dependable voice for those without one. In these times more than ever, Arizonans need the experienced, steady, Steele Resolve that Victoria brings.

As a legislator I believe it is the state's responsibility to ensure the core values of equality, opportunity (including equality of opportunity), and safety are reflected in its actions. During my tenure at the legislature I have worked to support appropriate funding for public schools. I will continue to make appropriate funding and support for public schools a priority if re-elected in 2020. I also stand for a woman's right to make her own healthcare decisions, responsible gun safety legislation, access to quality healthcare, the ability of cities and towns to self-govern without undue preemption from the state, protection of our environment and natural resources, ensuring that exercising the right to vote is not restricted, and supporting infrastructure in Arizona (roads/highways/railways, technology growth, water conservation, as well as K-12 education and our Universities).

State Representative - District 9
Republican
https://www.lyons4az.com/
Brendan Lyons is an energetic and results driven candidate. Over the past decade, he's earned a positive reputation as a community leader and has developed a track record of winning quality of life improvements for Arizona. His journey into public service began when he fulfilled his childhood dream of becoming a firefighter. As a public safety advocate, he became concerned about distracted driving after responding to far too many crashes. In 2012, he launched ""LOOK! Save A Life" in Southern Arizona, which fosters an environment of safety for all who utilize our public roads. A year later, he became a statistic of the very message he was advocating; struck from behind by a distracted motorist while bicycling. As he recovered, he threw himself into fighting for tougher laws against distracted driving, putting pressure on local jurisdictions throughout the state to adopt policies to make our roads safer. Then in April 2019, Governor Ducey signed Arizona's Hands-Free bill into law. Brendan holds a Masters in Public Administration focusing in Collaborative Governance. Southern Arizona deserves a brilliant future and Brendan Lyons will continue to be a results-driven leader who works across party lines to deliver on issues that we all care about.

When I ran for the House in 2016, I promised to be the voice of the people. I believe that the Legislature should work for the people and should fund the People's To-Do List: education, infrastructure, healthcare, and security-and not the corporate wish list. If we want high-quality public education and good-paying jobs, we must invest in future generations. As a member of the Ways and Means Committee, I am a strong voice against fiscal irresponsibility and continued corporate tax giveaways, while Arizona families struggle with housing, food, and financial insecurity. Long before the world was rocked by the novel Coronavirus, far too many Arizona children were living in poverty and suffering from the worst rate of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) in the nation. In my two terms, I helped negotiate the Arizona Opioid Epidemic Act, pushed for millions of dollars in COVID-19 funding, and fought for expanded access to affordable medical, dental and mental health care. I am a strong supporter of worker rights, unions, and the ERA. I am a Progressive Democrat and Clean Elections candidate. I don't take big money donations from corporations, special interest groups, or wealthy donors. I am your voice, not theirs.

Tucson is my home, where I raised my son, sold homes to families, and then built and ran a small business. I work hard, solve problems, and know the meaning of value in our lives. Our children's education is a quagmire that is ridiculous and unacceptable. The value of owning a home is simply unquestionable. Government regulations should never bind our teachers and parents or our ability to build and own a home "“ and right now they do. Police and Military must be fully funded for our safety. I am running because I love Tucson and I love people and will always be available to talk and listen to you.

Her belief that anything is possible with hard work and dedication inspired me to become anything I wanted to be. I want to be your LD10 Representative and am asking for your vote.

It has been my privilege to serve Legislative District 11 for 6-years as the senior State Representative. I have kept the promises I've made to constituents concerning personal freedom, economic security, a debt-free future, safe streets and schools, and increased funding for quality education. My voting record shows consistent support for private property rights, school choice, parental authority, limited government regulation, increased education spending and payment of debt built up over the years before I entered office. This will be my 4th and final term as a State Representative, a commitment I made on the first day of my service, which was to live by statutory term-limits. If I am chosen once again to represent you, I will continue my work to protect your life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I will continue to pursue funding mechanisms that support quality education, infrastructure repairs, and improvements, and emergency services for law enforcement, fire protection, and emergency medical services. In conclusion, I will continue to protect the voting franchise of every Arizonan from suppression and nullification; I'll seek ways and means that will improve the job-creator environment and tax policy that leaves more income in constituent's possession.

My name is Felipe R Perez, MD and I want to help fix your healthcare. Let's make Arizonans healthier and save money. Yes, this can be done with the right leadership. Although Arizona is the 5th fasting growing state, our current healthcare workforce only provides about 41% of the primary care doctors needed to keep Arizonans well and healthy. Unfortunately, it's going to get worse. It is projected that Arizona is going to need almost 2000 new primary care doctors in the next 10 years. Why is this important? Preventative care improves quality of life, saves lives, and money. Who can help fix Arizona's healthcare? I can. For the past decade, I have been caring for Arizonans to the highest standard. In 2013, I created Arizona's first teaching health center to recruit and train more primary care doctors in southern Arizona. The program has been an outstanding success and I want to create more primary care training opportunities in Arizona. Arizonans deserve better. Vote for an independent mind, professional, and healthcare expert to represent your needs. Let's make Arizona strong and elect a doctor to the house. Best Regards, Felipe R Perez, MD FAAFP

Thank you for your trust, support, and opportunity to serve you. I ran for office as a business owner, husband, father, and concerned citizen, promising to limit government and protect our Constitutional rights. I have kept my promises. I'm a top-ranked conservative in the Legislature and have been awarded Small Business Legislator of the Year, Hero of the Taxpayer, #1 for Constitutional Voting, Free Market Champion, Top Regulatory Reformer, Guardian of Small Business, A rating by NRA, recognized for defending life, religious freedom, and Friend of the Family. I worked hard to pass a structurally balanced budget, improve our credit rating, dramatically boost K-12 funding and teacher pay. I passed legislation to eliminate politicians' pensions and to shrink government. Limiting government and protecting taxpayers means saying ""No" to special interests who want to spend your money and take away your rights. With just a 1-vote majority in the house it is critical that we elect more proven conservatives to the legislature. Please also support Travis Grantham and Jake Hoffman as State Representatives.

We are living in unprecedented times. Now more than ever we need a pragmatic leader who is not short sighted,but understands how to mitigate damages and have a balanced approach to legislation. Though women outnumber men in our district they have yet to be represented. We need leaders that look like our mothers, wives, and daughters so that their voices no longer remain silent and the issues unique to them are treated with dignity. The pandemic (COVID-19) has placed a spotlight on the areas that we need our leaders to address right away. We have to be prepared to meet the challenges that will emerge. Our public schools more than ever must have the support that it needs to meet those challenges; whether our students remain online, return to brick and mortar and or some combination. While temporary stay home orders are necessary to protect life, our local businesses are hit the hardest by the pandemic. We must fully support them with appropriate legislation. As we emerge from the pandemic, large and sweeping legislation will be needed to get our local economy soaring. A strong, robust business community supports families and will keep our district thriving.

Working with Warren Petersen and Eddie Farnsworth, we functioned extremely well as a team, protecting taxpayers, supporting Arizona families, fighting for secure borders and ensuring a stable, friendly business environment that has brought more jobs and growth to Arizona than virtually any other state. Eddie is returning to the private sector and Jake Hoffman has stepped up as the third member of our conservative team. Jake has an outstanding conservative record and will be a true champion of freedom. We have a contested primary, but this race is easy to figure out. All three candidates claim to be conservative. Only Hoffman and Grantham have proven records of casting conservative votes or working for conservative issues. Getting Arizona's economy back to where we were before the Wuhan virus will require a focus on what works "“ so elect the team you can trust to get the job done. I'm a third-generation Arizonan, I'm proud to serve as an officer and pilot in the Arizona Air National Guard, and I ask for your support. Thank you.

I believe that as elected officials we must put the people we represent first and do everything in our power to keep government limited and effective in its core functions. As a Town Councilman, I work tirelessly to ensure that Queen Creek is the most free, prosperous, and vibrant community possible. Formerly, as a member of the Higley School Board, I worked every day to make our students, families, teachers, classrooms, and taxpayers our top priorities. Just as I have done serving you previously, I will continue to be a staunch defender and champion of freedom, lower taxes, free markets, opportunity for all, constitutionally limited government, fiscal responsibility, the Second Amendment, educational freedom, the right to life, and family and religious liberty. I support our President and those who put Americans and America first. I'm honored to be running as a team with two principled, conservative leaders like Warren Petersen and Travis Grantham. If you want a conservative team that works together to get great things done, vote for Hoffman and Grantham for State House and Petersen for State Senate. We would be honored to have your support!

It continues to be my honor to serve as your State Senator. I'm proud of how well Arizona was doing before the virus shut us down and I'm working hard to get us jump-started and back on our feet as quickly as possible. States like Arizona are poised to recover faster than other states because we built a strong pro-growth economy. My conservative record is pro-taxpayer, pro-family, pro-life, and pro-Constitution. My focus continues to be limiting the size of our government while ensuring that what it must do, it does as well as possible. My family owns and operates a dairy farm in Buckeye and our 4th generation Arizona roots are deep in the soil. I'm grateful for the support of so many in our district, both in Maricopa and Yuma County. God has truly blessed our country and our state, but it's our responsibility to protect them both. Arizona is a national leader in job growth, school choice, educational improvement, and regulatory freedom. We know the left wants to undo the good we've done, so we must remain vigilant and steadfast to protect it. I ask for your vote so I can continue doing this important work. Thank you!

I was honored to serve you in the Legislature before as a reliable conservative who led on tough issues like stopping illegal immigration, passing the largest tax cuts in state history, and ending affirmative action. As an Arizona delegate for Donald Trump in 2016 I made numerous appearances on TV defending our President against liberals like Jorge Ramos and Chris Cuomo. I later returned to the private sector, where I serve as Ministry Pastor at Catalyst Church and Executive Director for Desert Reach. Even better, my wife Melissa and I recently celebrated our 10th Anniversary and were blessed with a 2nd girl, Emalynn Hope. I was asked to run again because the conservative gains of the last ten years are in danger from an increasingly aggressive and socialistic Democrat Party, and from weak Republicans who support higher taxes, more government, Red Flag laws that erode our 2nd Amendment rights, and more. So I agreed to do it. I'll still be the 100% pro-life, pro-2nd Amendment, and pro-taxpayer legislator you know, and I'll fight as always for our veterans, our bases, our farmers and agricultural interests, and our water. Whether you're in Yuma or Maricopa Counties, I ask for your vote!

My experience, values, integrity, and commitment to serve make me exactly what this district and our state needs right now. As your Representative, I will improve our education system and make healthcare accessible for all Arizonans. Our children deserve a quality public education. I currently serve on a high school board, and I know funding is the single greatest problem with our public schools. Arizona needs fully-funded public schools to prepare students to enter the work force We rank 49th in the nation in education and elementary school teacher pay. Our legislators and Governor have failed to invest in an education system that will help our children succeed and properly compensate teachers. Post-secondary education needs to be affordable and accessible. In Arizona, 7 out of 10 jobs require post-secondary education. Whether it's college, technical school, or an apprenticeship we must help students to support the economy we desire. COVID-19 reminded us what ""essential worker" means. We must make healthcare a right for all and pay all workers enough to live on one job. Because one job should be enough to live with dignity.

As your State Representative I was named Champion of the Taxpayer, Friend of the Family, earned an A+ from the NRA, turned our state's budget deficit into a surplus, and helped turn Arizona into the #1 pro-life state, #1 pro-2ndAmendment state, and #1 pro-school choice state in the country, all while cutting regulations and growing jobs!

I am running for Arizona State Senate legislative district 14 because I believe that democracy is best served by a vigorous discussion of the issues facing our state government. For too long opposing viewpoints are routinely ignored by our state elected officials. A strong multi-party system helps ensure that those in power are held accountable by the voters. Arizona must invest in public education that guarantees ALL students outstanding schools, build a modern infrastructure; stop tax breaks to special interests; allow local governments to govern; support economic fairness; champion diversity and inclusion, create an environment for sustained economic growth that provides good jobs and good pay checks for workers in rural Arizona while protecting our precious natural resources and environment; protect a women's right to choose; and ensure access to affordable comprehensive healthcare for all. I will work hard as your state representative to be a voice for southeastern Arizona counties of Cochise, Greenlee, Graham and Pima. I pledge to listen to everyone, respecting those that do not agree with me; representing all of you, ethically, honestly, effectively and professionally. Republicans have controlled the state legislature for over three decades. It is time for new leadership in southeastern Arizona.

Kimberly "Kim" Beach - Moschetti
State Representative - District 14
Democratic
I am an ardent supporter of public education and an advocate for a sustainable state education budget that adequately provides the needs of professional educators and the children they serve. Support for this education begins at birth, with early childhood development being a key component to successful schooling. I also believe that the education of adults is vital to the success of our community. This includes supporting Veterans and their issues at a local level, and acknowledging their sacrifice and importance as citizens. Good social programs are important to the success of any community, and in a country as rich as ours, no person should be living in poverty or fear, especially a child or senior. The social well-being of people in a community is intrinsically connected to a physically healthy environment, and a responsibility to the Earth that provides us resources. Therefore, I also believe that economic growth must be balanced by environmental awareness especially in an area such as ours that is dependent upon a finite source of water. I have every intention of doing my best to address these and other issues that focus on the worth of individuals and community.

It is a time for concern and it is also an opportunity for meaningful change. Yes we are in difficult times but we must not forget the things that were of importance to us before. The progress we made the work we did. Water issues in Arizona still need to be addressed and resolved. Gun safety measures to protect the innocent need to be enacted and supported. Immigration reform is as critical as ever, even more so. We need to ensure humane, just and equitable treatment of undocumented people. Smarter use of technologies to secure the border. Environmental protections need to be prioritized and developed when considering economic growth. Education and Health Care need meaningful reform and governmental support, starting with teacher pay. Guaranteeing a woman's right to equal pay and decisions of her own body. A living wage for all, affordable housing, and equal opportunity for all. Concerns and Solutions.

It has been my honor to serve and represent Legislative District 14 for the past four years-the last two in leadership as Majority Whip. I remain a rural minded, plain spoken, conservative Republican who would be honored to receive your vote for the next two years. My focus continues to be the stability and productivity of rural Arizona. An education system among the best in the Nation; expansion of local entrepreneurs and expanding local businesses; supporting an environment that encourages jobs in Southeastern Arizona. Preserve a higher quality of life by securing our borders, stopping illegal immigration, properly utilizing and protecting our natural resources, and the preservation of the Constitutional freedoms that made our Country so great. Raised in an entrepreneur family I learned at an early age the value of free enterprise. Growing up in family businesses including restaurant, resort, retail, real estate, logging, farming, ranching, and the equine industries I worked with many sectors of the public. This afforded me an understanding how to effectively represent the district as we address and work through issues. I ask for and very much appreciate your support and vote to continue the work to strengthen rural Arizona. Thank you!

It is an honor to serve the constituents of District 15 in the legislature as a conservative fighter for your freedoms and values. My husband, Joe, and I grew up and raised our three daughters in the valley. As parents and now grandparents, business owners, and citizens, we've seen firsthand that freedom can't be taken for granted, it must be vigilantly defended. That's why we got involved. As a representative, protecting our individual liberties has been my primary goal. I have made it my job to look out for the individual - the person without a voice - and challenge the failures and injustices of entrenched government and other interests that diminish their freedom. District 15 needs limited and accountable government, secure borders, health care freedom, education that works for for every student, the freedom to peacefully live out your faith, and protection of every innocent life. I am your conservative fighter with a record to prove it. I listen, I solve problems, and I will never compromise our values. This is an important moment for our district and for Arizona. I thank you for your support and I ask for your vote.

I am pro-life, pro-second amendment, and pro-school choice "“ public, private and homeschooling. I work hard to ensure schools receive equitable funding and our healthcare system is affordable and accessible. I took courageous stands to protect our firefighters, first responders and was a voice for survivors of childhood sexual assault so they could find justice and stop further abuse. I stood up to tobacco companies to stop them from luring our children into vaping. My opponent failed to support these common-sense positions when she had the opportunity. She also fails to respect term limits, set by voters, having already termed out of the senate a mere two years ago. I am not afraid to stand up when special interests are unconstitutional, cost the taxpayer money or threaten public health. I currently teach at the University of Arizona, after 20+ years in the classroom at ASU's Teachers College and a middle school in PVUSD. I respectfully ask for your vote to remain focused on the people and priorities of LD 15.

Throughout my career I have advocated for and prioritized students. I have dedicated my life to teaching our next generation of leaders and supporting them as they move from the classroom to the boardroom. That perspective and experience is missing at our capitol. As the mother of three school age children, I see the drain in our education budget impacting students and teachers. As a university educator, I see the stress and hardship now associated with earning a college degree. Our public universities and community colleges used to receive much more funding from our state. In fact, our state constitution mandates that higher education be, "˜as nearly free as possible'. We can do that and increase our K-12 funding by closing special interest sales tax loopholes. Additionally, we need everyday citizens to fight back against the corruption and special interests that have invaded our capitol. When our legislators stop working for us, we need to start electing new legislators. We have enabled the majority to write legislation which directly impacts their own business interests while deprioritizing the needs of everyday Arizonans. The majority party governs like it is beholden to large corporations, not the people it is sworn to serve.

My priorities as your State Representative will include keeping taxes and regulations low, opposing unnecessary government programs and investing in our students so they are prepared for the careers of tomorrow.

I served eight years as an Army Officer, leading a team of Soldiers in Afghanistan as a Captain in 2008. My professional experience consists of management in retail, healthcare, non-profit and government sectors. All of those experiences culminated in me running my own business, a local junk hauling and recycling company called Junk King. Above all I want to protect and grow this great state.

Thank you for allowing me to represent you in the State House. With David Farnsworth leaving our State Senate, I was asked to run to ensure we'd have a solid conservative in that seat. I've agreed to do so and will continue my work for you in the Senate. This means we have an open House seat (you get to vote for TWO State Reps) and I have endorsed Forest Moriarty for State Representative. I've known him for years and he's an incredibly hard-working conservative with the guts to stand up to the special interests and liberals in the media and occasionally in our own party. No matter who your first choice is for State Representative, I hope you'll cast one of your two votes for Forest. As always, I'll focus on balanced budgets and policies that protect and create jobs, strengthen education and improve results, protect our 2nd Amendment rights, defend the Constitution, protect the unborn, fight for border security, advocate for veterans, and more. And while these issues matter a great deal, the most important part of my job will be championing those of you who need someone in government to care, to listen, and to act.

I received awards for protecting family values, opposing abortion and standing against socialistic agendas., We must never ignore the significance of our children's dreams to society's future., and while our teachers received the 20% raise without any accountability for failing AZ Merit/AIMS test scores I was the prime sponsor to end ""social" promotions given to kids without their knowing the required standards.

As a Respiratory Therapist working on the frontlines in the ICU with ventilated patients, I help patients and families. We need elected leaders with such frontline experience to make sure we are never caught unprepared again. Arizona families are hurting because of the pandemic. We have to get Arizona back to work again while making sure we do it safely. This will take leaders who can stay level-headed and make good decisions during a crisis. Arizona needs another strong conservative voice at our Capitol to defend our values, our families, and our Constitution. We have an open seat and need to elect someone to limit the size of government, boost our economy, continue improving our schools, cut taxes/regulations, and return government to its proper limited role. I'm a strong supporter of our 2nd Amendment rights, I'm pro-life, pro-family, and pro-school choice. The COVID 19 pandemic proves we need to our secure borders and "Build That Wall!"

For these efforts I've won Guardian of Small Business, Champion of the Taxpayer, Friend of the Family, and Open Government Leader awards. I even had the honor of being elected Arizona Speaker of the House, where I crafted good balanced budgets that reduced tax burdens while increasing school funding. I personally sponsored the largest education investment in state history, dramatically boosting teacher pay 20%.

After moving to Chandler in the late-90s, Arizona is the place I call home. It's an amazing state but the things that make it successful are under attack. Ironically, liberals fleeing high-tax, high-regulation states are moving to low-tax, low-regulation states like Arizona, but they're bringing their liberal policies and voting habits with them. We need to make sure we don't let this leftward push ruin everything that's working in Arizona. I'll work to protect school choice, teacher pay increases, and strong K-12 support. I'll advocate for secure borders and enforcement of our laws. I'll work for a strong economy and safe neighborhoods. And I'll oppose efforts to raise taxes or give government greater control over our lives and daily decisions. As a servant leader for the last several decades, I am committed to you and I will work tirelessly to get the job done! I'm a wife and mother, blessed with three great kids.

I am to proud to represent District 18 in the State Senate, covering Ahwatukee, west Chandler, southwest Mesa, and south Tempe. I grew up in our community and am a product of our local public schools. I was first elected in 2016 and am running for re-election in 2020. During my time in the Senate, I've focused primarily on restoring education funding and working across party lines to govern in a bipartisan way for our community, and I have the record to prove it. I have supported pay raises for our teachers, supported our small business community, and passed legislation to support our schools. I have authored several pieces of legislation to prioritize mental health support in our schools, and worked closely with our teachers to increase support for our students. I have received a number of awards during my time of service, including being named a Champion of Public Education by the Arizona Schools Boards Association and a Business Champion by the East Valley Chamber of Commerce. I have been named the most bipartisan member of the State Senate, and will always work across party lines to get things done. I hope to earn your support!

State Senator - District 18
Republican

I'm running for State Senate because so many people have been frustrated at our current State Senator's insistence on doing things the ""Democrat" way when what we need is someone who will vote for good bills and ideas regardless of who came up with them or what party they belong to. He ran as an independent and moderate and turned out to be just another liberal partisan. My issues are simple "“ improve education by ensuring proper funding and insisting on results. Let parents decide where their kids can go to school and give them lots of options. Support our law enforcement and first responders to keep us safe. Work with the federal government to win the fight against illegal immigration. Legal immigration is great and we all know people who did things the right way, but illegal immigration needs to end. Block efforts to raise our taxes or expand the size of government. I'm a Mom, a concerned citizen, and someone who is stepping up because common sense needs a champion in the State Legislature. I hope you'll visit my website to learn more and to get involved in my campaign. Together, we can make our voices heard this November!

As your State Representative, transparency is key for me so that you can see the work being done and communicate with me via phone, email, Facebook, Twitter, coffee chats, town halls, and more. I established the Neighbors Council, open to all, to meet with me regularly. We formed a larger coalition to figure out the next big step in suicide prevention and support for mental healthcare. Jake's Law was passed and signed in 2020 because of the inclusive process that I facilitated. For seniors, we developed family caregiver grants over the course of 3 years and it became law in 2019. We are facing tough budget decisions. Past legislators used the recession as an excuse to cut funding for schools, and that funding has still not been restored! I will not let the state budget be balanced on the backs of schoolchildren and teachers. With the support of my colleagues, I am looking forward to a leadership position in the House of Representatives in the upcoming session and I will apply my business analytical skills and experience building teams to forge a collaborative agenda that meets the needs of the many, keeping all Arizonans healthy and safe.

She is devoted to improving public schools so all Arizona children will have an opportunity to realize their American Dream. She is currently drafting legislation that would impose new transparency requirements on charter schools. Leezah supports the importance of healthcare for all Arizonans.

I'm honored to serve you. In my relatively short time in the State Legislature I've received the Guardian of Small Business; Friend of the Family; Hero of the Taxpayer and Champion of the Taxpayer awards. I'm a high school teacher as my day job, so no one is surprised that I work hard on education issues "“ but I'm equally passionate about looking after our first responders and other critical priorities like keeping children safe from predators. We recently completed increasing teacher pay 20 percent as promised. Another thing we did was to build up Arizona's Rainy Day Fund so that we'd be ready for an economic crisis. It's a good thing we did so, because now we need it to help us get our state back on track as quickly as possible. As we get Arizona back to work my priorities continue to be: protecting life, protecting taxpayers, job creation, improving education, protecting our first responders, and keeping our children safe from online predators.

We were better positioned than most states to deal with this crisis because we have been responsible with our spending, we built up a $1 Billion Rainy Day Fund, and have taken steps to support an improved and expanded health care industry here in Arizona. In addition to getting Arizona back on its feet, I continue to keep my campaign promises "“ including supporting law enforcement and first responders to keep our neighborhoods safe, increasing K-12 spending and boosting teacher pay (it was tough to do because EVERY House Democrat voted NO), and protecting our Constitutional rights.

World-class education. Quality, affordable, health care. Economic security. These are the core issues that matter to me, and I suspect to you and your families. Arizona's education challenges are clearly reflected in the dismal statistics. The current public health crisis caused by COVID-19 has exposed every fault line in a health care system that Walter Cronkite famously quipped was neither healthy, caring, or a system. The current public health crisis has also upended state and national economies. Even when we get past this emergency, normal is probably going to look very different. I've had many titles in my career. The one I cherish most is that of ""coach". As coach I was tasked with helping every player develop their own individual skill and then to coach all the players into one cohesive team. During competitions I taught that dignity should define our efforts "“ win, or lose. And that success deserves humility. As LD 21 Representative I would bring this same perspective to the legislature. The problems we face "“ in our communities, our state and the nation, aren't waiting for just the right super-star. They demand collective effort with each bringing our A-game with dignity and humility.

As the director of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association for Arizona, I have been teaching our constitutions for years, shining a light on the growing police state and expansion of the federal government over the states. I want to be a voice of justice and advocacy for the rights of all people. As Arizonans, we have a right to put our talents, skills and ideas to work and succeed without government taking more from you because your successful. I believe that businesses competing to bring the best products and services to our communities only sparks further creativity and advancements.

I've only been in the Legislature for two terms, but so far so good. I said I'd insist on a real balanced budget and that's what Arizona has. I said I'd work to lower taxes, limit the size of government, and reduce regulations, and that's what I've done. I said I'd make teacher pay a priority and we passed historic increases that dramatically increased teacher pay. I have a 100% pro-life, pro-family, pro-2nd Amendment, pro-Constitution voting record. I led the fight to protect Sun City homeowners against efforts to impose an HOA along with onerous fees and costs. Today, we're working to get Arizona back on its feet after the Conoravirus shut us down. Boosting our health care system and getting government out of the way so our businesses can return to full operations are top of my list. I'm an Arizona native and Navy veteran. I've been married over 30 years with four children and eight grandchildren. In 2020, let's re-elect President Trump and keep Arizona on the right track!

As a conservative, I believe most problems are best solved by applying the principles of limited government and respect for constitutionally guaranteed individual rights. As your Representative, these principles will guide my votes in the legislature. I support tax and regulatory reforms that spur economic growth which will enable Arizona to recover from the impact of the Coronavirus. I support President Trump's efforts to secure our border in order to reduce the adverse impacts that illegal immigration and drug trafficking have on our state. I'll embrace legislation that respects the sanctity of life; from the unborn to the terminally ill. As a governing board member of Arizona's 4th largest school district, I know that K-12 and Career Technical Education are vital to our children's future. Education is the largest portion of the state's discretionary budget and I will work to implement a cost-effective ""back-to-basics" approach that ensures our children can read, write, do math and know American history. With two seats for State Representative on the ballot, I hope you'll cast them for our current State Representative Kevin Payne and for me. I'm Beverly Pingerelli and I'd appreciate your vote.

Our state was among the best prepared, with a $1 Billion Rainy Day Fund, a low tax and regulatory burden, and a pro-growth environment that keeps government out of the way and lets the free market do its thing.

Hello. How do you feel? How's your family doing? My name is Wendy Garcia, and I am your Northwest Valley neighbor. I'm asking because I want to get to know you: What's your profession? How many grandkids do you have? How's your health? Do you need help with anything? When did our local AZ Leg. Dis. #22 Representatives ever ask your opinion on a public issue? I am an experienced radio news director and the mother of two. I founded Indivisible Surprise and helped organize Save Our Schools in the Northwest Valley. I am campaigning to represent you at the AZ Capitol because the politicians are not listening to voters like us. The incumbents pay more attention to money than people. Their failure has resulted in hundreds of deaths, and that is wrong! I promise to serve ""by and for the people" of District 22 to expand healthcare coverage, improve public schools, increase good paying jobs, cut sales taxes, and restore democracy. I will lead by listening! So let me ask one final question: Are you better off than you were 2 years ago? If not, then please vote Wendy Garcia for a better future!

As I write this candidate statement our state economy "“ and the national economy "“ is in spasms caused by the public health crisis of Covid-19. By the time you read this, I hope a more ""normal" daily life will have resumed and that you and your loved ones are well. This economic disruption brought into high relief the inequities of the previous status quo - in housing, health care, and education to name just a few. It is not news that there is inequality "“ what is news is that it is now so much more clearly seen. And what is now seen will not be unseen. Clearly, I am not a politician. I'm an Arizonan who recognizes our individual well-being is woven tightly with our collective well-being. Favoritism and special interests have starved our schools, fragmented our health care system, filled our prisons, and left too many behind and without a path forward. As a teacher my students learned about the five ""Cs" that defined Arizona's economic history "“ cattle, cotton, copper, citrus and climate. As your Representative I will honor that history by making sure our political future is defined by the three ""Cs" of competence, character, and compassion.

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. I've brought that same focus to the State House. We have cut taxes, balanced the budget, increased classroom funding and teacher pay, reduced regulations, and we had one of the strongest economies and job markets in the nation until the virus hit. Fortunately, we had built a $1 Billion Rainy Day Fund to help us with these sorts of crisis and our state is designed for growth, so our focus is now on Arizona's comeback! I have a 100% pro-Constitution voting record and, as the father of five girls, am absolutely committed to protecting our 2nd Amendment rights. I'm running as a team because we have a proven record of working well as a team to protect taxpayers, limit the size of government, and protect our liberties. Let's work together to protect Arizona; let's get back to record growth and prosperity for both residents and local businesses.

I worked at my father's furniture shop while taking business courses, eventually moving to California to pursue my MBA from UCLA. THAT'S WHEN I GOT THE CALL. Like many families, our business was hit hard by the Great Recession. My family needed me to come home to help out. I took a leadership role in our business which meant making some hard choices. It turns out they were the right ones and the business is stronger today. The responsibility I felt to my family's business is the same responsibility I feel to my state. Arizona is bottom five in the nation in education spending. Career politicians face ethics investigations. This isn't what we voted for! THAT'S WHY I'M RUNNING FOR ARIZONA STATE SENATE. Because we deserve better. Because we all know we live in an amazing state and it's time for that to be reflected in the numbers. Because we deserve a leader with vision.

My parents built a business here and, after a stint as a teacher in an Arizona classroom, so did I. For me, Arizona really has been a place where dreams come true. I bet you feel that way too. We can still be that place. I'm running for state senate because I know what it takes to rebuild in hard times. I started my business in the shadow of the Great Recession. I've been through the budgeting. Felt the awesome obligation of meeting payroll. Seen how freedom and hard work combine to make dreams possible. If you elect me your state senator I make one promise to you: I will use every lesson I've learned along the way, every ounce of effort and scrap of will that I can muster, to help rebuild this place I love with all my heart. www.alex4az.com

I have had the privilege of representing District 23 in the state legislature for the last ten years. Now more than ever, we need a decisive leader with a proven record of getting results and that person is me. I am asking for your support of my re-election to the state Senate. During my entire tenure I have served on the Appropriations Committee which has given me extensive experience in developing budgets when the state had a surplus and when it had a deficit. It is this experience that will prove invaluable as the legislature addresses these unprecedented times. I have also worked jointly with Governor Ducey to combat crony capitalism by eliminating unnecessary regulations of licensed professions so people can pursue economic freedom. I am proud to have the continued support of Congressman David Schweikert and several influential organizations like the National Federation of Independent Business, NRA and Americans for Prosperity. With your support I will continue to be a strong voice at the legislature to fight against out of control spending and burdensome regulations, to jump start our economy, and to defend the integrity and security of our elections.

Democratic
https://kurland23.com/
Eric Kurland is a retired educator with over 20 years of public service to the Scottsdale community. His commitment to all Arizonans shapes his vision for a better tomorrow. With an academic background in finance, Eric understands the importance of making smart investments in good times and bad, an insight desperately needed in our Legislature. To have a strong economy we need to create opportunities for businesses and jobs. To build a strong Arizona we need to prepare future generations with the skills to create those businesses and fill those jobs. This means investments in public education so all Arizonans can realize their full potential. It's providing local control to county and city governments so the people closest to home can help build thriving communities. Maybe most importantly, it's time to bring civility back into our politics. If this pandemic taught us anything, it's that we're all in this together and to move forward we have to look out for our neighbors and build each other up. Eric lives in Scottsdale with his wife, also a public school educator, and their son.

Perhaps you know me from my KTAR talk show. Or because I've been working hard for you in the State House, where I vote as promised, in a conservative manner to expand the power of the individual and limit the power of government. I vote for real balanced budgets, free of gimmicks, that boost school spending and teacher pay, and I will continue to advocate for real secure borders and an end to illegal immigration. As an Air Force veteran, I'm honored to serve as Chairman of the House Military, Veterans, and Regulatory Affairs Committee. This race has lots of candidates who claim to be conservative, but only John Kavanagh and I have actual conservative records. I've won awards from pro-taxpayer and pro-family groups and have a 100% pro-2nd Amendment, pro-school choice, and pro-life voting record. Visit LD23JayLawrence.com for my endorsements and to learn more about my positions and record. This year we must re-elect President Trump, defend our U.S. Senate seat, and protect our State Legislative GOP majorities. A lot of liberal money is being spent to defeat John Kavanagh and me, but I hope we've earned your two votes with our work and voting record. Thank you!

It would be my honor to continue to serve as the Arizona State Senator for LD 24 in the 55th Legislature. Throughout my career as a lawmaker, I have championed our public schools and universities, advocated on behalf of our most vulnerable communities, and worked to find common ground with my colleagues and pragmatic solutions to the challenges confronting our state. Accessible and affordable public education that prepares Arizona's young people for 21st Century careers, improving the lives of children and families, working in support of housing for the homeless and low-income families, and defending the civil rights of all of Arizona's citizens will continue to be my priorities, should I be re-elected to represent LD 24 in the Arizona State Senate. A native Arizonan and the proud product of our public-school system, from kindergarten to graduate school, I believe in the potential of our young people and Arizona, which is why I will continue working for the people of our great state as LD 24's State Senator.

Dear friends, I'm running for my second term in the Arizona House of Representatives. We are in the middle of an unprecedented crisis, and many of our citizens face incredible hardship and uncertainty. As a practicing Emergency Physician, I have witnessed first-hand the effects of this virus on our population. As your current State Representative, I have heard from our constituents about economic devastation, from jobs lost to businesses shuttered. Despite all this, I am inspired and amazed by how Arizonans have pulled together, acted responsibly and shown compassion and kindness to one another. We will get through this together, and my sincere hope is that it will bring out the best in us. Our situation demands even more from our elected officials, and so I pledge to continue working hard to listen and to advocate for all of you. As we enter session next year, we will be tasked with guiding Arizona through difficult times and choices, and I hope to make you proud with my efforts. Thank you again for your support and consideration. Please be safe and healthy, Amish Shah, MD

Our future cannot be limited by old ideas. I love Mesa and I love Arizona. But our leadership is committed to old ideas from the last century. We have a state paralyzed by long-term leadership without the ability to work across party lines with a commitment to our shared future - now's the time for a change. Our education system is fundamentally flawed, where our teachers are paid 47th out of 50 states for our public K-12 schools. Your hard-earned tax dollars go into the pockets of private companies rather than teachers improving the future of our students. Our great state is rich in natural resources and beauty. We need to expand our investment in renewable resources ensuring Arizona will lead the nation in transition from fossil fuels. We can profit from our resources while ensuring future generations inherit a sustainable economy and ecosystem. We must recognize the importance of equality "“ that women are equal to men, that all races, colors and creeds have the same access to the same resources, and are paid equally. I have a plan for how to work across party lines to find solutions for 2020 and beyond. Arizona deserves better.

I am grateful to live in such a wonderful, diversely beautiful place - Arizona. I am a four-generation Arizonan, have a wonderful wife, 7 great children and 20 grandchildren. I have served many years and I have gleaned experience across diverse subjects through my service: government operations, environmental issues in water, air and natural resource. I know the worth of teams and informed consensus and have enjoyed working on difficult projects of broad impact, as well as specific individual challenges for those with very limited resource capacity to seek justice. I offer a 30 year span of experience in this arena, and have tried to address challenges thoughtfully and in an informed manner. I believe in the platform of life, liberty and the pursuit of personal agency for my, my family and my friends' interests. I agree with the main elements of my party platform including protecting the unborn, the right to bear arms and self-protection, preserving religious freedom, reasonable regulations, wise use of resources, and self-discipline.

We're a conservative district and deserve a conservative Representative. That's why people asked me to run and why I agreed. I'm a mom, a grandma, and I'm very involved in helping our returning veterans through a non-profit organization that I run. I know freedom isn't free -- my son Brent lost both legs fighting for us in Iraq to keep America free! I'm running because our district is very frustrated at Michelle Udall being the most liberal Republican in the State House and wants someone they can count on to protect their wallets, defend school choice, oppose poorly-written ""Red Flag" laws that trample our 2nd Amendment rights, and protect our Constitution and God-given rights. Republicans only have a one-seat majority in the State House "“ but with a liberal, big-government Republican in that seat who works to cut deals with socialist Democrats, we don't have a real majority at all. Every seat matters, this one more than most. That's why I'm endorsed by patriots like Cindy Biggs, County Treasurer Royce Flora, Kathleen Winn, former Secretary of State Ken Bennett, Dr. Ralph Heap, and numerous veterans and community leaders. I'm a committed conservative you can trust, and I ask for your vote!

Michelle Udall

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 so that we can begin our recovery after this recent recession. 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.

State Senator - District 26

My parents, brother and sister all escaped from South Korea in 1978. The former South Korean govt tried for many years to see us returned and face the death penalty. That corrupt government finally gave up and I went from an asylum seeker, to a permanent resident, and later a US citizen. I know what freedom means and the hope and opportunity it can give anybody willing to work. As I became accustomed to the United States I worked hard and graduated from college. I then met my wife and was blessed with 2 boys. Now grown, one works here in the valley and one is serving in the US Army. I stand for freedom, liberty and justice. These are not just casual words but a belief that the American way is the best way in the entire world. For 20 years I have lived in Arizona. I built a business, raised a family and worked in the community. I want to represent you! To insure that this way of life, the life that has been so good to me, is available to my children and my grandchildren.

https://mendezforarizona.com/
As your Senator, I am running for reelection to end the political and economic inequalities that push many Arizonans to work too hard to provide a better future for our families. For eight years as your public servant in the Arizona Legislature, I have fought to restore integrity and accountability in state government. Having grown up in poverty with a single mother, I know firsthand that individual success coincides with shared investment in education, infrastructure, health, economic stability, housing, and safety. These systems are especially crucial in times of crisis as demonstrated by the COVID-19 pandemic. We are at a critical moment. Arizona is on the verge of becoming a majority-minority state and yet our Latino youth continue to fall behind at devastatingly high rates. By not addressing the educational achievement gap, we are facing one of the gravest threats to our future. As the Chair of the Latino Caucus for four years, I have worked to tackle this head-on. However, the number one barrier to progress for all is the influence of big money in elections. That's why I am running with Rep. Athena Salman and Melody Hernandez as your Millennial Clean Elections Team. Please vote for all three.

Melody Hernandez

As a first responder and paramedic risking my life on the frontlines during the COVID-19 crisis, I have seen the effects underfunding our public healthcare system. As a union steward, I'm fighting against the institutions that undervalue and neglect their workers. The Republican response has only made this fight more burdensome. That is unacceptable, especially when countless lives are on the line. The ideas that compelled me to enter this race have only grown more important in this tumultuous time. More than ever we must ensure everyone has equal access to healthcare. We must expand the rights of workers. We must strengthen our education system. And we must defend our democracy. For the past five years, I have advocated as a grassroots organizer, campaign manager for progressive candidates, and most recently served as the first Latina Chair of District 26 Democrats. I am now running alongside Rep. Athena Salman and Sen. Juan Mendez as a part of your 2020 Clean Elections Team because we know sweeping changes MUST occur if we are to fix our broken system. District 26 is the last district to elect three Clean Legislators to the state capitol. We ask that you vote for all three.

The Loughrige family has been in Tempe since 1933. Bill retired as a Senior Special Agent for the US Customs Service after 35 years in Law Enforcement. After retirement he has operated a PI Process Serving and Security Guard service. Active in the community, Bill is currently President of the Tempe Sunrise Kiwanis and the Walker Fire Protection Association near Prescott, AZ. A wage earner all his life, and part of a large active family, he believes a strong family is important. Freedom from governmental restrictions allows success and a strong culture. There is a place for regulation, but they should be aimed to allow growth. Government restrictions have made keeping a nuclear family together difficult and at the same time made access to help so restrictive that many people just give up and sometimes even end up on the street. Bill's platform is independent living and security for seniors and children. We need to know our children and seniors are safe and secure in their life and possessions. We need government to shore up partnerships with private organizations to provide food, shelter and safety for those that need it.

I am running for the open seat at the Arizona House of Representatives for District 26. I have had the honor of serving on the Tempe Elementary School Governing Board for the last five years. During my time on the school board, we have solidified several policies to uplift our communities and fully support our students, educators, and parents. We increased pay for all staff with record-high raises before, during, and after the #RedforEd movement. We implemented district-wide preschool, marking Tempe Elementary School District, a leader in early childhood education, not just in Arizona but nationally. While we have had success in the school district, more needs to be done to pass inclusive policy at the state level. For too long politics has held us at a standstill and we can't afford to maintain the status quo. It is time to get things done at the Legislature. I have a proven track record of effectively moving policy forward and am ready to take it to the next level. I humbly ask for your support and for you to join our campaign.

Let's give families and children a bigger voice. I'm a mother of three children, a licensed social worker, a volunteer for a public school parent committee, a founder of a youth leadership-focused nonprofit, and an active volunteer with several community-focused organizations. As an experienced social worker, I intend to put our families and children first. The needs of our community, including the health and safety of our families, should remain the highest priority when public resources are allocated. First, I'll prioritize increased transparency and accountability in education spending, particularly with charter and other nontraditional K-12 schools funded with public dollars. Second, because school violence and bullying continue to be public safety issues, I will work with parents and school leaders to find the best solutions. Finally, I will work to strike the right balance between economic prosperity and conservation of our natural resources. Our limited water supply, coupled with our recent economic and population growth, requires us to thoughtfully plan for any further growth. When elected, I will work with diverse community stakeholders to achieve inclusive policy making. Learn more at https://www.debbieforaz.com/.

It's been an honor to serve as your State Representative and House Democratic Whip. Born and raised in Arizona to an immigrant family from Mexico, Germany and Palestine, I developed an early appreciation of the constitutional rights we often take for granted. This gratitude inspired my fearless defense of those most vulnerable including forcing the prisons to supply feminine hygiene products to incarcerated women by sparking national outrage, unapologetically standing with educators during #RedForEd having attended public schools my entire life, and now fighting for the health, safety and lives of frontline workers and our communities during the tragic COVID-19 pandemic. My advocacy resulted in the Arizona Republic including me in their Top 10 Newsmakers to Watch last year. Since the beginning, I have always run as a participating Clean Elections Candidate. By keeping my campaign publicly funded through direct support from hundreds of voters living in our district, I am accountable to you above all else. As the ranking member on the Elections Committee, I've seen our democracy attacked by traditional politicians backed by outside dirty money. I am humbled to run alongside Sen. Juan Mendez and Melody Hernandez as your Millennial Clean Elections Team. Please vote for each.

My name is Marcus Sifuentes, and I am a candidate for the state House of Representatives for Arizona's 26 th district. I am requesting your donations to help me receive Clean Election funds for my campaign. I chose to run on Clean Elections because I am a middle-class father of 3 and not by any means a millionaire; I cannot finance my campaign out of my own pocket. The second option is to take donations from people who may expect a political favor in return. The strength of my campaign is that I am person from the community who intends to represent everyone in the community, not special interests, and not any specific big donors. When special interests take a stake in our elections, politicians may compromise the integrity of their decisions, and I am not willing to do that. My campaign is focused on bringing jobs by supporting small business, cutting taxes on middle- and lower-class workers, and improving our standard of education for our children. Together we can protect the values that we share in our community, so please take the time to donate $5 to my campaign and let's win together. Continued Service, Seth Marcus Sifuentes

I want to improve the lives of those who live in our district regardless of economic status, political labels or backgrounds. I grew up poor in south Phoenix in a multi-cultural home, the youngest of 9 children. People are afraid to walk in the neighborhoods, cars stolen, homes burglarized, businesses robbed, and citizens murdered. The victims of these crimes deserve a Senator who will do something about the crime rate. The crime rate has a direct impact on economic development. Higher paying employers will not come until the crime rate is brought under control. Reducing crime will reduce auto and homeowner's insurance and increase home values. I will protect your right to send your child to a traditional public school, a public charter school, home school or school out of our district. The current incumbent doesn't support your right of school choice. Criminal justice reform, mental illness, homelessness, water, education, poor internet service, protection for foster parents, protecting 2nd amendment rights are important issues. As a business owner I will advocate for small businesses. creating opportunities that lift people out of poverty is important. Join me in making a better safer caring community.

These unprecedented times call for strong, effective leadership. I started public service twenty years ago with ten years on a school board and for the last ten years representing you in the Arizona legislature. I've fought for the people and causes I believe in "“ access to needed healthcare, children in the foster care system, small business owners, K-12 and higher education funding, and safe, beautiful neighborhoods.I've won a lot of those fights and consequently have been honored with many awards. I have always put you and the best interests of Arizona foremost in my work and in my votes. That means building bipartisan bridges and standing up to both political parties' ideologies. Please visit my website, www.katemcgee.com to learn more. In November, I will face an opponent with zero experience in public service, who, when given the opportunity to lead in her chosen arena, walked away. My opponent, who wants to ""flip the chamber and turn Arizona blue", criticizes my solutions without offering any herself and has pledged to vote as instructed by Democratic leadership: she is the ultimate special interests candidate. That is not what LD28 voters expect nor deserve. I humbly ask for your continued support.

While my experiences as a mother, teacher, and foster mother helped me make the decision to run for State Senate, my primary motivation for running is my belief that we need to move the state forward because, currently, too many Arizonans cannot reach their own potential. Through my experiences as Arizona Teacher of the Year, I had the opportunity to travel the state to see first-hand the challenging issues our public schools and our communities face. Those issues are directly connected to the decisions the legislature makes. For too long, Arizona has suffered under the burden of one-party rule: our healthcare access has been threatened, including access to care for people with preexisting conditions; our infrastructure is crumbling; our voting rights are being systematically taken away; our kids' classes have gotten larger, and they lack access to counselors. A more balanced Senate will allow beneficial ideas from both sides of the aisle a fair hearing, with public input, benefitting all Arizonans. It is time for a change. Let's move our state forward and help all Arizonans live up to their full potential.

Hello Neighbors! I am unique among the candidates seeking this office in that I am a U.S. Navy veteran, a veteran of almost 20 years service with the Arizona Department of Corrections, and a supporter of President Donald Trump. My hopes for Arizona: Criminal Justice Reform I advocate a fundamental reform to our criminal justice system to stop sending non-violent offenders to prison. My plan would impose fines and restitution on non-violent and fiscal offenders and reserve prison time for violent offenders. I do not want to change the use of incarceration for persons who commit violent crimes. Prisons should separate violent people from the rest of us. Land Reform Seventy-four percent of the land area of Arizona is held by the Federal Government. Title to this land was supposed to be transferred to Arizona on statehood, but this was never done. The tenure of President Trump is our chance to make this happen, if someone introduces the appropriate legislation. Please visit my website: VoteKenBowers.com I need your vote! God Bless America!

As your State Representative, my priorities continue to be funding public education, increasing access to affordable, quality healthcare, keeping our families safe, and investing in economic opportunities and infrastructure. I serve as the ranking member on the House Health and Human Services Committee and on the Commerce and the Technology committees. I am committed to representing the interests of hardworking families in LD28 and finding real solutions to the challenges facing our state. My husband and I are small business owners. I have had years of experience helping to manage all aspects of our family's dental practice. I've helped our business navigate changing economic and regulatory environments -- and gained experience that has served me well in our State Legislature. This past session, I introduced bills that would have doubled the number of children eligible for insurance through KidsCare, allowed individuals the option to buy healthcare through our state's Medicaid program, and required all Arizona insurers to issue policies with comprehensive protections, including protections for people with preexisting health conditions. I look forward to a time when good ideas from either party are discussed and debated. This election is critical. Be sure your family and your friends all vote!

As an entrepreneur, I know that just talking won't solve problems "“ we need leaders who can bring people together to get things done. I founded Jumpstart with a group of friends out of my college dorm room. Later I started Acelero Learning with a group of colleagues I still work with today. Both organizations are focused on helping low-income preschoolers get the support they need to enter kindergarten ready to succeed. I am so proud that they directly impact the lives of tens of thousands of young children every day. I ran for the State House of Representatives in 2018 to bring that problem-solving perspective down to the Capitol. Since I got elected, I have worked with Democrats and Republicans to get things done to move the state forward. I've tackled everything from doubling the funding for teachers to get their STEM certification to making sure our seniors in LD28 can play BINGO in their community rooms. If you agree with my common-sense approach to getting things done, I am asking for your vote for State Representative for LD28. I promise I always will listen to your concerns and try to find solutions.

I am seeking my 4th term as your State Representative. I have been successful in getting legislation passed. A constituent request for ""Baby Changing Tables", resulted in me championing ""Adult Changing Tables", because a family member with a disability deserves the respect, dignity and most importantly, the privacy to be changed, because a dirty restroom floor is unacceptable. Recently the COVID-19 pandemic, showed why we need a leader who will continually fight for paid time off, sick leave, paid FMLA, livable wages and most importantly, safety in the workplace. The pandemic has many in our communities worried about bills, mortgages and most importantly, affordable healthcare. Many already live in this crisis day to day without a pandemic, because many in our communities are struggling to keep the lights on and put food on the table. Affordable housing is becoming non-existent because many are struggling to put a roof over their heads. My covenant is to represent YOU, not big businesses or corporations. I am a Progressive Democrat who will continue to fight for you, which is why I am asking you to support and vote for a proven effective leader in 2020.

I have served my community in so many ways. Everything from grass roots movements, back to school drives, education, and serving on a number of non profit boards. I also understand and have lived the challenges the community faces till this very day. I've been and still am a small business owner as a real estate broker with over 20 years experience. I've lived through different and difficult economies from pre-911 to post 9/11, the housing market crash, and now COVID-19 which have greatly affected affordable housing, homelessness, and businesses within the community. I can speak from experience and understanding what it takes to navigate through these moments and overcome obstacles by putting in place legislation to protect the community during these times. It is now my time to serve my community at a higher level to make that difference.

State Representative Cesar Chavez was first elected in 2016 to represent the 29th Legislative District in the Arizona House of Representatives, with his district covering the areas of Maryvale, South Glendale, and Litchfield Park. Born in Guanajuato, Mexico, along with his parents immigrated to the United States when he was three years of age. From a very young age, Rep. Chavez saw the lack of resources within education and healthcare. His involvement was key to numerous movements including the protests against anti-immigrant law, SB1070. His compassion for the immigrant community lead to him championing other issues such as education, healthcare, and economic development. During his first term, Representative Chavez has proven to be a structural member of the Arizona State Legislature. Not only has he been willing to work across the aisle in a bipartisan manner for the benefit of his constituency, he has been able to stop hurtful legislation from going through the legislative process.
