Today, my new dream is to be elected the next State Senator of Arizona and to GIVE BACK. I will use my legal expertise and common sense to create and change laws in Arizona that will benefit us all and to advance our shared goals of security, opportunity and prosperity.
“Her ability to listen, negotiate, debate and compromise in regard to important issues and laws that impact the lives of people living in Arizona will be extremely valuable.”
Your vote counts more than ever. Today, the division of Senators is 14 Democrats and 17 Republicans. If I am successful and one other Democratic challenger is elected, the Senate will be divided 15–15 between the parties, opening the door to having more progressive legislation considered.
Running as a Democrat in a state and district that has in recent years voted Republican is a challenge, but tides are turning. I don’t believe Arizona’s Goldwater, McCain and Flake Republicans can be comfortable in the party of Trump and Arpaio.
At the top of my to-do list of legislation will be:
- Restoring public school funding to pre-recession levels by closing special interest and corporate tax credit loopholes.
- Changing existing Arizona laws that allow discrimination.
- Providing for a cleaner environment by expanding renewable energy sources.
- Creating a more transparent and open state government.
