Why I Am Running, 

Arizona deserves a government that sets the stage for a prosperous environment and always puts the needs of the community first. We need leadership that backs up the promises by promoting high quality education, high paying skilled jobs, affordable healthcare, and innovative solutions that reinvest in the safety and future of our neighborhoods. This is why I am running to represent the community that raised me. I would be honored to have your vote and to be your voice at the Capitol.

Arizona deserves leadership that always puts the needs of our communities first. Coming from a working class family, and as a product of our public education system, I have seen the need to promote policies that strengthen our quality of life. This is why I am running to represent the community that I was raised in. I believe in the future of our state. Together we can create an Arizona that works for us all, and not just the few.

Issues I Care About

We’ve experienced these challenges right here in our community. Our public schools are our equalizers and they need to be funded. We need jobs right here in the district. Our working families deserve access to affordable healthcare. We’ve walked with our teachers for funding and have joined efforts and movements that have taken on special interest groups. We hope to have your vote this August election in representing our working families.
