We need to continue pursuing pro-growth policies so that we can attract more employers from the high-tax states around us. Arizona is a fast-growing state and companies looking for a new home have noticed our business and family friendly state.
I remain opposed to amnesty and will continue to advocate for real border security to stop the flow of drugs, guns, and crime that cross our border.
Strong families make a strong Arizona, so when I vote on legislation my question is always “Will this be good for Arizona’s families?”
I helped lead the charge to increase K-12 funding and to increase teacher pay by 20% over the next three years, and we got the job done without raising taxes. Now we need to make sure that these billions of additional dollars make it to the classrooms themselves, there they can benefit our kids and teachers directly. I have also been fighting to improve the school funding formulas for our rural schools and championed dual enrollment at every high school in our districts.
I'm a Lifetime member of the NRA and will always vote to ensure that The right to keep and bear arms is never infringed, period!
Our families live within our means and our government needs to do the same. That's why I believe so strongly in real balanced budgets, that are responsible, low-tax, and are done without accounting gimmicks.
As someone who knows the importance of being able to responsibly use our land and natural resources, I also know how suffocating the EPA and other federal agencies can be. Protecting the rights of Arizonans to use what God gave us remains a priority for me.
More than half of the land in Arizona is owned by the federal government, a problem shared by many western states, while many eastern states have virtually no federally-owned land. This inequity needs to be resolved in favor of the states.
The U.S. Constitution says that all rights not expressly given to the Federal Government remain exclusively with the States, yet Congress and the Federal Government routinely violate our rights as a State. I will continue to fight this overreach and work with our Congressional delegation to take back our rights.
Proposition 127 would require Arizona’s public utilities to get at least half of their power from renewable sources by 2030, no matter how much it costs. Experts have projected the initiative would double monthly electricity bills for average Arizonans and costing a typical family more than $1000 over the course of the year. If you're a senior or are on fixed income you will get hit the hardest. Proposition 127 will cost of thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in economic activity would be lost. Plus our school districts would lose out on hundreds of millions of dollars of property tax revenues if traditional power plants close prematurely to comply with the initiative. Why would we pay such a high price to satisfy the California billionaire named Tom Steyer who is paying for all of this? Steyer's energy policies have already wrecked California, where they pay twice what we pay for energy. Vote NO on Prop 127 and let's keep our energy clean AND affordable.
