As an independent, with a clean slate and no political baggage, I will take positions that may not fit either party's ideological framework, but make sense for Arizona. I will pursue legislation that puts the public interest above all others. I will seek solutions that are informed by data as well as traditions.
My father was a Republican and my mother a Democrat. I grew up hearing opposing opinions, respecting each, and thinking about alternatives that would satisfy both. I’m running for public office because Arizona needs someone who can be a catalyst for bi-partisan solutions that will last.
My core beliefs are:
• Put the public interest ahead of any partisan and special interests
• Use common sense and find common ground to solve problems
• Promote opportunity, equality, and stewardship
• Champion competition, transparency, and accountability
As your legislator, my primary focus will be to produce a budget that prioritizes education, healthcare, and public safety, putting these core legislative responsibilities on a stable financial footing. Please see my Legislative Bucket List at www.voteleone.org for greater detail.
