David Garcia is from us… and for us. His dad was a commercial painter and Vietnam-era veteran and his mother juggled parenting with a job at an electronics factory. At 17, he enlisted in the U.S. Army. His time as an infantryman instilled values that guide his life to this day: discipline, accountability and duty. David has committed his career to improving Arizona public schools. David is a professor in the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College at ASU mentoring Arizona's next generation of leaders. His strengths include public policy, serving as a research analyst for the state senate and leading the Arizona Department of Education as associate superintendent. He is known for answering tough questions and developing visionary solutions. These traits have earned respect and accolades from people on both sides of the political aisle. Arizona is being held back because our leadership is not committed to creating an excellent public education system. Arizona’s failed commitment to public education is hurting our economy and tarnishing our image. David is the right person to address Arizona’s greatest challenges. David married his high school sweetheart, Lori, a fellow Mesa High Jackrabbit. Together, they have two beautiful daughters who attend public schools.

My name is Angel Torres, and I'm the Green Party candidate for Governor. I graduated from Arizona State University in 1986 with a Bachelor of Arts in Organizational Communication, and have worked in the airline industry for the past 31 years. I'm a member and union steward for Teamsters Local 104. I have been a registered Green Party voter for 26 years, and have served as the state chairperson of the Arizona Green Party (AZGP) since 2004. Campaign Priorities: 1) STRENGTHEN OUR ECONOMY: Organize workers into the union of their choice, and use the purchasing power of our anchor institutions (hospitals and universities) to create community-based, worker-owned cooperatives. 2) FULLY-FUND K-12 PUBLIC EDUCATION: Ensure that the wealthy and corporations pay their "FAIR SHARE" in taxes, so that we can give our teachers and staff a much-needed pay raise. We need to be FISCALLY CONSERVATIVE with every tax dollar we spend. 3) HEALTH CARE IS FREEDOM: Promote naturopathic medicine, and other alternative modalities, as a way to LOWER health care costs, and IMPROVE health outcomes. For more information about my campaign, please visit my website: https://www.torresforarizona.com/. I respectfully request your vote on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. Thank you.

The two major parties do not adequately represent the people in all areas. That's were I enter the political landscape in Arizona. Good day, my name is Cary D. Dolego. I am a 55 year Arizona Resident. I hold a bachelors degree in BIS from Arizona State University, and two AA degrees in Public Administration and Customer Service from Rio Salado College. I am a former 15 year employee with the Arizona Department of Economic Security and I am currently employed by The Home Depot Inc. I am in touch with the needs of Arizona and as Governor I will work to represent all the people without bias and without preference to special interests. Most importantly I believe any political holder of a government office should be limited to a maximum of 2 terms.

This may be the most important election you ever vote in, although other candidates aren't even mentioning why. As Arizona Governor it will be my duty to steer us through today's issues like border safety and equality, school safety, educational excellence and ensuring wealthy corporations pay their fair share. Yet even more importantly, it will my job to ensure that Arizonans have a future! To secure this we must enact a plan to directly remove carbon from our atmosphere. Even the most optimistic computer models show that around 2035, Earth will establish “new normals”, exponentially-escalating climate events. For example, melting ice releasing vast methane deposits and disrupting ocean currents vital for distributing Earth's heat. I am uniquely prepared to lead us through this Climate Emergency. I have trained with groups of foremost researchers and theorists in the climate field. There is a viable, safe, field-tested plan called Ocean Assisted Carbon Capture which begins with retrofitting our 24 fossil fuel driven power plants with carbon removal technology. Arizona can be in the forefront of restoring our climate ,but that means electing a Governor who will fight not just for today, but for our future!

I'm the only candidate with a proven record of executive, educational and legislative leadership, and the only candidate who's been an education leader at the local, state and federal level: (1) elected public school district member/president; (2) president of a statewide, accredited, online charter school; and (3) U.S. Congressman and Chairman of the House Education Subcommittee. I authored legislation on special education, career-technical education, and charter schools, and was recognized for my dedication to children with disabilities. The Heritage Foundation said, "Representative Riggs spearheaded many cutting-edge initiatives like school choice and charter schools." I'm a strong supporter of parental school choice and am proud to be endorsed by Mommy Lobby AZ. I'm a successful businessman, former CEO of a national, award-winning education nonprofit, and a teacher and coach. I'm also an Army veteran and former police officer who will work to make our schools safer. I graduated summa cum laude from Golden Gate University and received the prestigious "Associates Award" as the "Outstanding Graduate in the College of Business & Public Administration." My wife of 38 years, Cathy, and I have three grown, married children and five wonderful grandchildren, my personal motivation for running to lead our State's schools!

I’m an Eagle Scout, husband, father, attorney, and earned my PhD in Arid Land Resource Sciences (Water). I’m also a Conservative Republican, an elected GOP precinct committeeman, and I'm proud to serve as a Major in the United States Air Force JAG Corps Reserve. Throughout my private-sector career, from ice-skating rinks to homebuilding and waste management to finance, I’ve been a proponent of free markets and smaller government. Clean water and affordable power are key to Arizona’s economic future and my background in water and natural resource management uniquely qualify me for this office. I’m the only candidate with a plan to restore integrity to Arizona’s scandal-filled commission. I’ve proposed adoption of the Arizona Code of Judicial Conduct which is the exact same code of ethics adopted by the Arizona Supreme Court and followed by every judge in Arizona. I lead by example and that’s why I‘m not accepting campaign contributions from the regulated utilities or their lobbyists. Arizona’s regulators must put integrity first and protect ratepayers. As a conservative Republican I’m pro-life, pro-2nd Amendment, pro-secure borders, and as the only Veteran running for Corporation Commission I take my oath to defend our Constitution very seriously.

First elected to the House of Representatives in 2010 on a platform of smaller government, lower taxes, and more freedom, Olson exemplifies what it means to be a citizen legislator. Unlike the career politicians who often become out-of-touch with needs and concerns of their constituents, Olson has always held full-time employment in the private sector while serving his constituents as a lawmaker. Working in a demanding career as a tax analyst has kept Olson grounded in the day-to-day realities of earning a paycheck, putting food on the table and working within the laws that misguided politicians too often create. This perspective has led Olson to successfully advocate legislation to decrease the burden that government places on families, small businesses and individuals. Olson’s commitment to conservative principles has led nearly every conservative organization in Arizona to rate him as one of the very best of the state’s legislators. Those recognitions include “Champion of the Taxpayer” by American’s for Prosperity, an “A” rating by the National Rifle Association, and a “Champion of Small Business” by the National Federation of Independent Business. Justin is a lifelong resident of Mesa where he and his wife, Karyn, are currently raising their children.

Sandra Kennedy was elected in 2008 with more than a million votes to the Corporation Commission on a platform of promoting solar energy in Arizona, and as a fierce consumer advocate. In 2013, Kennedy made headlines when she was the first to sound the alarm about the growing culture of corruption at the Commission when she formally challenged Commission Chair Gary Pierce about APS helping run his son for Secretary of State. Sandra ran for Corporation Commission in 2014, and was narrowly defeated when millions of dollars in dark money ads were used to defeat her. Sandra started her public service when she was elected to the Arizona House of Representatives in November 1986, where she served for six years before successfully becoming a state senator in 1992. She served three terms as state senator. While she was serving in the legislature, Sandra was elected to serve on the Phoenix Union High School Governing Board for a four year term in 1990. Sandra is running to: • Lower utility rates • Stop the corruption at the Corporation Commission • Create more solar and renewable energy in Arizona, especially roof top solar See more at http://kennedyacc2018.com/ and https://www.facebook.com/KennedyACC2018/
