Many of you have already asked but I wanted to let you know officially, I have decided to run for the Arizona State Senate in 2018.
Arizona has been my home for nearly 30 years. I’ve watched our state grow, raised my family here and for the past seven years I have had the honor of representing the best constituents in the Arizona House of Representatives.
My track record consists of sponsoring legislation that solves many of the complex problems we face in Arizona, making me one of the most effective legislators in the House. I’d like to take that leadership to the Senate to tackle the issues Arizona still faces. But I cannot do it without your help.
First things first, I need to get on the ballot. If you live in LD15 and are a registered Republican or Independent you can follow this link to the Secretary of State’s Office where you can safely and securely sign my electronic nominating petition.
Thank you for your past support and I look forward to continuing to work for you in the future.
Thank you so much for your help and support. As you know by now, our campaign was once again overwhelmingly successful in Tuesday’s Republican Primary. We focused on the issues and rose above some of the negative campaigning that entered our race.
No Democrats or other third-party candidates are running for these seats, so this Primary Election was the decision-maker for our district’s representatives.
I am honored to once again represent you in the Arizona House. You have my commitment to continue to focus on the issues that matter to you like job creation, improving education, strengthening public safety and providing world-class healthcare right in our own backyard.
I am extremely appreciative to everyone who helped during the campaign. I couldn’t have done this without your help! Let’s make the next two years all about moving our district, and Arizona, forward.

Friday is the last day to request an early ballot for the Primary Election. This race will be decided in the Primary because there are no other candidates from other parties running in the General Election. Please encourage your friends and family to vote in the Primary as well by forwarding this email.
The last four years, we made our state government more transparent and accountable, balanced the budget and have a more watchful eye than ever towards the future – ensuring we don’t make the same mistakes of the past.
We have made great progress in the Arizona comeback and people have taken notice. Below is a partial list of people and organizations who have endorsed my reelection campaign. Please visit my click here for a complete list of endorsements.
As your state representative, I have championed conservative issues that are most important to you. Since being elected, I have voted for several key pieces of legislation that protected our children, strengthened our communities and bolstered our economy.
A Proven Record
Budget: Balanced the budget and cut taxes to spur economic growth
Public Safety: Empowered and strengthened law enforcement to keep drugs and crime off our streets
Child Safety: Replaced failing Child Protective Services with new cabinet level agency, Department of Child Safety
Immigration: Advocated strongly for the federal government to take immediate action to secure our border
Veterans: Sponsored legislation to guarantee in-state college tuition for our veterans, and additional legislation that provided for greater hiring preference for veterans returning to the workforce
Seniors: Passed legislation to drive down pharmaceutical costs
Education: Funded effective and efficient schools, supported school choice and put additional dollars directly in the classroom
Healthcare: Reduced healthcare costs to Arizonans, while maintaining world-class medical care right in our own backyard

As you have no doubt noticed, there is an Independent Expenditure group who has decorated our district with political signs falsely claiming I have voted to raise your taxes. May the dirty politics begin.
Sometimes vindication is best served by an independent review. It is with great eagerness and enjoyment I share with you a Fact Check conducted by the Arizona Republic.
They investigated the accuracy of the claim purported on the signs and the results….False – Zero Stars!
Unfortunately, these dishonest tactics have become all too familiar in local politics. It’s a shame a group called The Arizona Taxpayers Action Committee would purposefully deceive voters on a tax related issue.
I sincerely doubt this will be their last attempt to distort the truth in this campaign. They will continue to use disingenuous and dishonest messaging to mislead voters as we head into the final stretches of Primary Election season.
Thank you for your willingness to see through the dirty politics. I stand by my voting record. My goal has always been to protect the taxpayers. If you wish to help me combat this negative campaigning with a truthful, positive message – please make a contribution to my campaign or adopt a yard sign to show your support.
