Prior to the Covid-19 shutdown, Arizona was one of the best states in America for growth, new jobs, growing wages, and economic environment. As our country reopens Arizona is poised to recover faster and better than most states because of the solid framework we have established. Arizona is a fast-growing state because 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. That means a real border wall.
I'm grateful we have a President who puts America first, who is taking a hard line on our trade deals, who is serious about finally securing our border, and who supports our first responders and our military. Too many in our own Party are afraid to stand with President Trump and his efforts to drain the swamp and rebuild the amazing economy he helped to create. Not me. I stand with our President and share his commitment to putting the best interests of our nation first.
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% 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, where 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.
