“Legislation Should Be About Good Policy and Not About Politics”. Living in the Prescott area most of my life, it’s my honor serving LD1 for 8 years in the Senate and House and 11 years as Chino Valley Mayor and Prescott City Councilwoman, all while adhering to those words. As a business owner and experienced civic leader, I bring ideas to the table finding common ground, resulting in successful bi-partisan legislation. Introduced bills range from funding full day kindergarten; expansion of JTED education programs; eliminating business regulations; workers comp fraud; water harvesting; Yarnell Hotshot State Park; highway infrastructure; reducing government waste. This has resulted in 35 legislative awards from Az. Chamber of Commerce Legislator of the Year; Az. Capitol Times Legislator of Year in Public Policy; Champion Az. League of Cities & Towns; Legislator of the Year JTED/CTE; Golden Apple Award; Hero of the Taxpayer. I will continue to fight for our rural communities; public safety; I17 hwy corridor improvements; local water issues; education funding; ranching and AG. industries; and ensuring a balanced budget. I appreciate the trust and confidence you have placed in me and ask for your continued support and vote.

My name is Sally Ann Gonzales I've served as one of your State Representatives for the past seven years. As a member of the Arizona House, it has been my mission to promote the protection of our most vulnerable citizens—especially children and our elders. As state Senator, I will work to continue Medicaid expansion for the millions who need it and to stop the continued assault on our public district schools while improving the working conditions for our dedicated teachers. I am also committed to expanding vocational opportunities and upgrading our workforce by funding and supporting programs like JTED. It is essential that our three Universities be recognized, treated and funded as engines of economic development in our state. Arizona government must also work to assure protection and improvement of our environment by fighting to keep strong and effective EPA standards. Clean air and water are essential to the well-being of our citizenry. To further my work on these causes, I am now a candidate for Arizona State Senate 2018. I commit myself to these priorities and humbly ask for your support. It is and has been my honor to serve Southern Arizona constituents for the past 7 years.

I just finished my first term in the State Senate and I continue to keep my focus on a balanced budget, a strong state economy, jobs, improving our schools, limiting the size and scope of government, protecting the taxpayers, and defending our Constitution. There is a non-stop battle between those on the left who want to grow our government, raise our taxes, and chip away at our freedoms – and those of us on the right who want to increase our freedoms by letting you keep more of what you earn and by keeping government out of your lives as much as possible. I will always be on the side of freedom. I was and will always be a US Marine, and I am also involved in doing what I can to help our veterans and to make Arizona a veteran-friendly state. Never hesitate to contact me if I can be of service to you, and thank you for the honor of getting to represent you in the State Senate.

I’m not a politician or a diplomat, I’m a political activist who's “fed up” with the Washington status quo that creates gridlock and polarized parties.
I’m a Kingman property owner ready to change outdated water rights laws that were never intended to allow foreign investors to capitalize on commercial agriculture that drain aquifers dry.
I’m a US Army veteran with a service-connected disability and three-time cancer survivor concerned about the challenges to accessing quality health care in the remote rural parts of LD5.
And I’m a constituent concerned about the political division and lack of genuine representation by our elected officials who don’t even bother to attend local town halls.
I’ve earned an associate’s degree, a bachelor’s degree, a master's degree, and two post-baccalaureate certificates. My work experience is in Social Work and Education. And I built a successful private counseling practice before moving to Arizona in 2009.
And I’m ready to start having a different kind of conversation between representatives and the constituents they are elected to serve by listening to everyone involved and searching for the common ground to problems so that true bi-partisan solutions can be achieved that serve the common good of the people.

I will do my best to return Arizona to it's people, by eliminating all unnecessary regulations and restrictions that impede the rights and abilities for people to prosper for themselves. I believe the Government has taken so much from the people that they have trouble simply surviving, instead of improving.
I believe in Personal Property rights and our sovereignty and will defend them to the utmost.
Our School system is completely out of control. Massive spending and moving further and further away. Our kids need to learn necessary life skills rather than simply learning how to pass tests.
Another big issue lately is Immigration. It's a misconception that Libertarians want unsecured borders. My thought on this is that we appreciate legal immigration. It is what built our great Country. The problem is the crimes committed when illegal immigration is permitted, Fraud, Smuggling, Etc... I understand this is a small percentage of illegal immigrants, but it is also true that there is a small percentage of USA citizens that are criminals, but we still enforce the law. This needs to apply to everyone.
Finally, I just want to say, if you want your freedoms back and your rights respected, Vote Libertarian.

Three issues have repeated come up - education, jobs, and public safety. I have made working on these issues my number one priority at the legislature. I will continue to work to make our communities safe through adequate police and fire protection, continue my efforts to improve educational opportunities for all and to get better teacher pay and more resources into the class room.

Face the facts: Arizona’s government is controlled by lobbyists and not the voters!
Over the past decade, the GOP has dominated every aspect of government. During that time their every effort has been directed by deep pocket lobbyists. Their actions speak for themselves: They’ve brought public education to the brink of crises. They’ve given us an economy rated worst among the 9 western states. They’re working to put Arizona’s 30 year record of water conservation at risk. They’ve bullied cities across the state that dare to practice democracy.
I propose a new and bold direction for Arizona. My plan prioritizes Arizona’s families and small businesses. We can fully fund public education using commonsense fiscal policies. Investing in education and innovative industries will energize our economy. Environmental protection of public lands, clean air and water along with renewable energy can’t be left to profit seekers. Ethical government is possible only with the election of people of integrity.
Arizona can be a leader but first we need new leadership. I’m a proven leader and Clean Elections Candidate who will make Arizona’s families my top priority!

My name is Elizabeth Brown and I come from a family of public school educators. I learned the value of public education and I want my grandchildren and all children to have the same opportunity. I am running for the State Senate because being ranked 48th in K-12 Education, 49th in pupil teacher ratio and 50th in teacher pay is a travesty, an embarrassment and is unacceptable for the people of this state. Our state can do better than this. We live in the Valley of the Sun. In Maricopa County we have 296 days of sun. We can make it easier for people to have solar power at affordable rates. I was Girl Scout Leader. In Girl Scouts we taught how to conserve water and learn how to take care of the environment. We need legislators who are willing to pass laws that will help protect our air, water and land. As a former educator, Girl Scout leader,an employee for the Democratic Party, governor's office and State Senate, I have learned to listen to and work with others and I have learned the value of compromise.These three things are essential in being an effective legislator.

It has been my honor to serve as your State Senator. While everyone campaigns as a conservative, I can offer my actual conservative record, which is pro-taxpayer, pro-family, pro-life, and pro-Constitution. My focus continues to be limiting the size of our government while ensuring that what it must do, it does as well as possible. My family owns and operates a 4th generation dairy farm in Buckeye and our Arizona roots are deep in the soil. I’m grateful for the support of so many in our district, both in Maricopa and Yuma County, and I’m hard at work on the various concerns we have, from water to transportation to classroom funding to school safety to lower taxes to border security to protecting our 2nd Amendment rights, I’m going to keep working on all of it. God has truly blessed our country and our state but it is our responsibility to protect them both. Arizona is a national leader in job growth, school choice, educational improvement, and regulatory freedom. I ask for your vote and I promise to continue my work as a reliable conservative.

We need leaders we can trust. Leaders who put the needs of the voters above their own interests. We’ve got real issues in this state. We deserve someone with the courage to face them head-on. Public school funding and educator pay is just one example. But those issues aren’t going to be addressed as long as out-of-state special interests and corporate lobbyists have more influence than the voters do. I intend to take on those issues, starting with corruption and conflict of interest in our state government, and make Arizona politics accountable to voters again.
I grew up in Buckeye. Four generations of my family live here in Arizona. This is my home and I want it to be a place that allows all Arizonans to feel welcome, to prosper and succeed. For 21 years, I served my country in the Air Force. I’ve served in my community since then. I hope to serve you.
Whether it’s jobs and wages, access to healthcare, extreme drought, or the desperate state of public education, these issues affect me and my family, just like yours. It’s personal. I’m asking for your vote so we can build a better Arizona together.

I was honored to serve you in the State House, where I was named Champion of the Taxpayer, Friend of the Family, earned an A+ from the NRA, turned our state’s budget deficit into a surplus, and helped turn Arizona into the #1 pro-life, #1 pro-2nd Amendment, and #1 pro-school choice state in the country, all while cutting regulations and growing jobs. As a result of my leadership I was elected House Majority Leader and ultimately elected Speaker of the House, giving rural and Southern Arizona real influence, and making myself a top target of the liberal media and their fake news. With my longtime Senate seatmate Gail Griffin now running for the House, I’ve been asked to run for the State Senate to ensure that we keep a proven conservative in this important office. Like before, I promise to fight the left, defend what’s right, and give you my all, because I know how important the people's liberties and freedoms I fight for are. On behalf of my wife, my kids, and every one of the great volunteers helping in this effort, I ask for your vote on August 28th, so we can win this fight together! God Bless!

After serving my first term as your Arizona House Representative and almost 16 years as a Graham County Supervisor I am announcing my candidacy for the Arizona State Senate. “I have always told people that every individual needs to step up for their community when the opportunity arises. We need to continue strong consistent communication between citizens, local leaders, and the capital."
John, a 4th generation Arizonian, living his entire life in Legislative District 14, currently lives in Graham County and spent most of his youth living on a ranch and farm in Cochise County 20 miles north of Benson. He attended Benson Union and Safford High Schools. He’s been married 42 years, has 3 children, 7 grandchildren and has operated small businesses in LD14 with family and on his own since he was 18 yrs old.
HIs goals are:
1. Protect and preserve the rural lifestyle.
2. Prevent cookie cutter regulations for AZ, especially those impacting rural businesses and residents.
3. Smaller and more efficient government.
I am a US veteran, mother of 3, (two children who are also veterans), as well as the wife of a retired veteran. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Secondary Education, Social Science Comprehensive as well as English as a Second Language. As a local business owner and member of the community, I have grown tired of the career politicians and growth of the federal government at the expense of the people and the individual rights of all. I think it is time for a change. I am a constitutional, fiscal conservative. I want to shorten the grip our government has on our personal liberties and our money. It is time to give the power back to the people. We must start electing Representatives and not politicians.

As a retired auditor I have the skills and insight to understand financial statements and budgets. Professional standards obligated us to serve and honor the public interest and trust. Working for the Army over 30 years I knew my customer was the soldier in the foxhole, in the Senate my focus will be district constituents. The Army ethos and values I learned in the Marine Corps have never failed me. I bring those values and business acumen to the district.
I’m running for office because our Legislature has failed us. Our future is our children and grandchildren. When public school system funding is constantly cut and voter approved propositions are ignored it’s time for change. The Voter Protection Act is trampled on and incumbents put their donors above constituents. Incumbents enacted legislation to hide their donors by legislating “dark money” and they overreach into city and county business. We need to stop this extreme ideology that doesn’t reflect our values.
We need to i) restore public education, ii) rollback state government overreach, and, iii) cleanup the State Capitol - let’s bring back the trust and values – vote for me.

We are a state full of promise. We need to strengthen our educational system, secure economic growth in our rural communities, create a quality healthcare system that protects ALL Arizonans and protect our precious natural resources. - Mendy Gomez
My vision for Arizona includes:
Quality Education- My experience in the classroom, in educational advocacy work and my involvement in the #RedforEd movement, I am ready to tackle the education issues in our state.
Economic Growth- As a former member of my community action board, I am prepared to tackle issues of securing job growth and infrastructure in our unique communities.
Affordable Healthcare- Every Arizonan should be afforded quality, reliable healthcare. I will work hard to make healthcare a priority, especially in our rural communities.
Environmental Protection - Southeastern Arizona has a precious resource - water. I will work hard to ensure we have this resource now and in the future.
My experience growing up in a military family,with parents who taught me that the way to solve problems is by facing a challenge head-on, and working hard on finding a solution. I am ready to head to our capital to solve real issues that affect ALL Arizonans.

Over the past 8 years, we balanced the state budget, cut taxes and put Arizona back on track! As Chair of the Health Committee, I successfully sponsored healthcare reforms to provide a more transparent and cost-effective healthcare system. I worked with patient advocacy groups to ensure that we receive world-class medical care in Arizona. As a former PVUSD teacher, Clinical Associate Professor at ASU, I have reduced government regulations and unfunded mandates to allow our schools to be more innovative, efficient and effective. I supported appropriating more money to our public schools, which enabled our teachers and school staff to receive raises. I also support school choice. I am a proud Second Amendment supporter, I am pro-life, and support policies to address illegal immigration and keep our community safe. Recognized as a top legislator, I am endorsed by, and won awards, from many organizations that promote conservative economic principles and strong family values. In 2013, I received the prestigious Copper Shield Veteran’s Award for my work and commitment to veteran issues. Most importantly, I am a mom, wife and daughter and I hope to earn your vote!

I am a wife, a mother of three, an educator and I have been a resident of Arizona since my parents moved to Tucson when I was two years old. I have worked in higher education my entire adult life and am passionate about equal opportunity and access to a quality education. Our children deserve better than the status quo. We must fight for school funding and school safety for all of Arizona’s children and, if I am elected to serve, I will do just that. As a graduate of Arizona State and Cornell Universities, I have seen the positive impact that education can have on people’s lives.

I grew up in the Midwest and have lived in Arizona for more than seven years. I'm the father of three wonderful children. I've also owned a small business for over 20 years. My mother and father were both lifetime educators. I've volunteered in our schools and worked as a substitute teacher as a way to give back. In 2015, I started a crowd-funder to raise awareness about the problems in our schools.
My values center around education for our children, leadership, family and friends, and philanthropy (simply doing what's right). I feel the need to represent those who are under-represented in our state, such as children, teachers and the blue-collar worker. I also think we can do better when it comes to healthcare.
For far too long, our educational system has been broken, our teachers and laborers underpaid, and few options when it comes to healthcare. If elected, I aim to fix these problems in our great state of Arizona.
State Senator - District No. 17 (REP)
As your State Representative I authored laws that directed more educational dollars into classrooms, created the Address Confidentiality Program for survivors of domestic violence and sexual offenses, helped employees who are owed wages, and promoted veteran-friendly college campuses. I won Guardian of Small Business, Champion of the Taxpayer, and Friend of the Family awards, and many others, and was subsequently honored to be elected Speaker of the House. Little did I know I'd be tasked with shepherding our Legislature through an historic time that included emotional debates over education funding and teacher pay, a high-profile case of sexual harassment, and more. Yet we passed good balanced budgets that reduced tax burdens while increasing school funding and dramatically boosting teacher pay by 20%. We also wrote groundbreaking policies to ensure personal conduct by legislators is held to the high standards the public deserves. With Steve Yarbrough retiring I’m asking for your vote to continue this important work in the State Senate. If elected I will continue to keep an open door, put my constituents first, and use my diverse background that includes husband, professor and small business owner with master's degrees in both business and public administration to deliver for you.

I’m running because I care about you and want to build a better future for all of us!
I've spent a lifetime helping people all over the world, including right here in Arizona. Whether it was rescuing an infant from a remote pacific island and rushing her to the United States for open-heart surgery or delivering food to starving people in Somalia, I have dedicated my life to caring for and protecting others.
I care about education, and brought the Southwest Airlines Adopt-A-Pilot program to the Kyrene School District, reducing teacher workload. I also personally founded a Dollars for Scholars chapter here locally, reducing the cost of college education for hundreds of public high school students in our community. Others talk about the things they believe in, I do them.
I am bilingual and son of an immigrant who watched his mother become a naturalized citizen. Connie and I have two wonderful daughters in public-school–scholar athletes–and we couldn't be prouder parents. Others will tell you what they believe, I can only say: this is who I am. I care about you. Education, healthcare and your safety are my priorities, and I humbly ask for your vote.

I’m honored to serve you. When I campaigned as a conservative I meant it. I’ve received the Guardian of Small Business; Friend of the Family; Hero of the Taxpayer and Champion of the Taxpayer awards, and an “A” rating from the American Conservative Union.
My priorities remain: protecting life, protecting taxpayers, job creation, improving education through increased classroom funding and increasing teacher pay, and keeping our children safe from online predators. These last two sessions alone we’ve passed real balanced budgets, cut taxes, increased funding for school facilities, dramatically increased teacher pay, rolled back job-killing regulations, and watched as Arizona became one of the top job-producing states in the country. I’ve supported efforts to secure our border (that means building a wall!), to stop ObamaCare, and to give parents a greater say in the education of their children.
I’m proud of endorsements I’ve received from County Attorney Bill Montgomery, former US Senator Jon Kyl, and groups like Arizona Right to Life, the NRA, the Fraternal Order of Police, and many others, but the endorsement I want the most is yours!

My name is Randy Miller and I running for the Arizona Senate Seat in LD 21. I am a retired Senior Deputy Probation officer. I worked all my life following the law, treating people with respect and compassion under the law, and as an equal. I've seen success, failure, heartache and loss of life in our communities. I've witnessed failed policies and successful ones and the impact, both good and bad, they can have.
Our voices have been unheard, our dreams have been overshadowed and our concerns have been ignored. Government has gotten out of control. They spend without accountability, create new laws but enforce only those they want, and lost sight of their purpose.
With your support I will work hard to represent all of us just as I represented the interest of our communities and people that live in them during my 20-year career as a probation officer and in business.
I have 8 years' experience as a business owner, now I'm in the real estate.
It's time the people rose up from the shadows and take back our government as it was intended to be.
I hope to earn your support, as your new state senator.

Wendy Garcia founded Indivisible Surprise and organized Save Our Schools in the Northwest Valley. She is an experienced radio news director, fearless activist, grass roots leader, and mother. She knows the importance of protecting vulnerable people’s rights. Special interest groups corrupt Arizona with too much money. Politicians don’t pay attention to everyday people. To restore democracy Wendy will protect voter rights and support publicly funded elections (as a “Clean Elections” candidate). U.S. education statistics rank Arizona’s schools in the bottom 10%. To improve student and school achievement, Wendy will fight for resources and better qualified teachers. Strong public schools protect democracy for “we the people” by teaching citizenship. Quality public schools also teach effective job skills. Healthcare must be affordable and accessible to everyone in Arizona. Wendy supports expanding Medicaid in Arizona with prescription coverage. Arizona’s economy relies upon Cattle, Cotton, Citrus, Copper, and Climate. To increase jobs and grow the Northwest Valley, Wendy advocates for developing Construction, Conservation, and Computer industries.

Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), Arizona’s Medicaid program, is a federal healthcare program funded jointly by both federal and state funds. I’ll work to expand AHCCCS and to protect KidsCare and ALTCS, (programs for children and those needing long-term care.)
Our mass transit system needs expanding to accommodate our ever-growing communities. I’ll focus on improving transportation options in our state and introducing municipal broadband to enhance technology accessibility and reduce prices for consumers.

I was born into tough circumstances, including domestic chaos and violence. I lost my big brother to a gruesome murder. Thankfully, my beloved mother taught me to cherish faith, care for others and work hard. I beat the odds, I’m living the American Dream. I’m a husband, father, grandfather, friend and optimist. I serve various companies and non-profits. Governor Ducey asked me to transform the Department of Economic Security to improve social services. We went to work, attacked the status quo, cleaned out deadwood, dramatically increased morale, and improved care for Arizonans in need. Eventually the self-serving status quo fought back, claiming I was cruel for firing hundreds of poor-performing employees and taking issue with my ardent commitment to protect our social workers and clients. The liberal attacks I suffered never dampened my desire to serve others. I’m running for State Senate to make a true conservative difference. Representative Ugenti voted against the extension of Proposition 301 to fund education, against “Blue Lives Matter” legislation to protect law enforcement, and against anti-bully legislation to protect school children. She even opposes Term Limits. I’m pro-education, pro-police, pro-accountability, pro-border security, pro-jobs, pro-life, pro-Constitution and anti-politician. I hope to earn your vote!

I am a 20 year veteran, now retired, of the Az Depart. of Corrections. I am a candidate for office because I believe the criminal justice system is horrendously defective. I want to incarcerate drug offenders, sex offenders, illegal aliens, and violent offenders (anyone who hurts others) and thereby separate such people from the community. Fiscal offenders would pay restitution and a fine to the state.
This system would result in the release of thousands of young men and hundreds of young women.
I am a US Navy veteran and an Az Attorney in good standing. I fully support President Donald Trump in his efforts to Make America Great Again!

State Representative Noel Campbell's entire career has been spent in service to our country: first as a Navy pilot who flew combat missions in Vietnam, then as a U.S. Customs agent working on the Mexican border, and finally as a helicopter and tanker pilot fighting fires for the U.S. Forest Service. During his career, Rep. Campbell learned the values of teamwork and cooperation; qualities he certainly took to the Capitol with him. In his first term, he sponsored H.B. 2107 which gave cities and towns permissive authority to regulate structured sober living homes -- a problem which plagued the City of Prescott for more than a decade. It passed with overwhelmingly bi-partisan support in both Houses and was signed by Governor Ducey. Rep. Campbell looks forward to continuing to serve the constituents of LD-1 this next legislative session as chairman of the Transportation Committee.

As a small businessman, I've spent my life in the private sector, creating jobs and economic growth. As a civic activist, I've been a taxpayer advocate, standing up to liberal politicians who want to raise taxes and grow government. Now, after my first term in the State House, I can point to my record cutting taxes, boosting classroom funding and teacher pay, reducing regulation, and promoting Arizona's status as a top job creating state.
It's been great to work with State Representative Noel Campbell. Our district has been well served by having a strong team working together. Standing up to liberal special interests has earned us a primary from a nice lady who thinks our conservative record is bad. But that's okay. Voters should have the opportunity to make that decision. We'll continue to fight to restore our Constitutional rights, defend the 2nd Amendment, secure our borders, stop Common Core, cut goverment regulations,, defend state sovereignty, encourage rural job creation, and advance water and forest health issues. We will give our whote district from Anthem to Ash Fork, a strong, conservataive voice. All we need is your support and your vote.

I am an Eagle Scout and an Engineer. I will be proactive in solving problems that impact our district residents. I believe all elected officials are to be conducting themselves as "Representatives of The People". As by nature a problem-solver, I will defend and protect our rights which is a nonpartisan expectation. My past legislative activities include articulating 2016 Session’s HB2050 Bill which would have amended ARS 41-1034 Declaratory Relief from unconstitutional state agency and state department judgments that intrude into our “Liberty”. Our Constitution states “Liberty” as being defined as our wages, children, home and property. Having been an orphan and having lived in a third world country, I clearly know the difference between a world without freedom, liberty and opportunity! I am grateful to have this opportunity to meet with district residents and to have discussed many problem-solving ideas that will help to improve our day to day lives in our state. I look forward to rolling up my sleeves as we solve problems together through our state law making process! Go to ElectSizer.com to learn more about Anthony Sizer. God Bless and Thank You for supporting my candidacy!

With 30 years of experience in education, rising from teacher to superintendent to construction supervisor to consultant, I have much to contribute to Arizona’s educational crisis. Having a Doctorate in Education - Curriculum and Instruction; along with a Master of Science, Construction Management; a Master of Arts, Supervision and Administration; and Bachelor of Arts, Vocational Education means that I can relate to the struggles of the unskilled worker or the college graduate, the administrator wrestling a budget or the electrician wrestling with new city codes; the management of people and the management of materials. With a lifetime of experience, now is the time to capitalize on my experience and credentials to benefit the community. My top priorities are education; quality of life such as democratic participation, access to health care, a safe and clean environment, living wage jobs, and affordable housing; and reducing mass incarceration so that Arizona is Number One in Education not Incarceration. I bring my most important values of honesty and integrity to the issues in my district: water policy, roads and infrastructure, and stable employment. I currently serve on the Land, Agriculture and Rural Affairs and Transportation committees in the House.
