Growing up in Slovakia, Eva became a U.S. citizen in 2007, was elected to the Flagstaff City Council in 2014, and led two successful campaigns that raised Flagstaff's minimum wage to $15.50. She is employed as a National Communications and Technology Director for Restaurant Opportunities Centers United, helping to raise wages and improve working conditions for restaurant workers nationwide. In addition to earning her master’s degree from the University of Economics in Bratislava, Slovakia, Eva completed short leadership programs at Harvard University and Cornell University. In 2015, she received the Arizona Woman of Vision Award from the Arizona Women's Conference and in 2017, the Eleanor Roosevelt Award given annually by the Coconino County Democratic Party for demonstrating democratic values in her service to the community. As a policymaker she consistently put people first, and she intends to bring that perspective into Congress. While valuing fairness, inclusion, justice, peace, and democracy, she will champion universal healthcare, fully publicly funded pre-K through college education, immigration overhaul, and meaningful, large-scale climate action as well as Indigenous, women’s, LGBTQ+, and workers’ rights. She will also raise a strong voice for diplomacy in place of wars that cost our communities lives and precious resources.
