SINE KERR

STATE SENATOR - DISTRICT NO. 13

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.

DAVID GOWAN

STATE SENATOR - DISTRICT NO. 14

I was honored to serve you in the State House for 8 years, 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 state, #1 pro-2nd Amendment state, 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. I returned to the private sector, and was asked to run for the State Senate to ensure we have a proven conservative looking after our district. You elected me in 2018 and I’m keeping my promises -- fighting the left, defending what’s right, and giving you my all, because I know how important the freedom of the people I’m fighting for are. On behalf of my wife, my kids, and every one of the great volunteers helping in this effort, I ask for your support so we can continue winning this fight together!

NANCY BARTO

STATE SENATOR - DISTRICT NO. 15

It is an honor to serve the constituents of District 15 in the legislature as a conservative fighter for your freedoms and values. My husband, Joe, and I grew up and raised our three daughters in the valley. As parents and now grandparents, business owners, and citizens, we've seen firsthand that freedom can't be taken for granted, it must be vigilantly defended. That's why we got involved. As a representative, protecting our individual liberties has been my primary goal. I have made it my job to look out for the individual - the person without a voice - and challenge the failures and injustices of entrenched government and other interests that diminish their freedom. District 15 needs limited and accountable government, secure borders, health care freedom, education that works for for every student, the freedom to peacefully live out your faith, and protection of every innocent life. I am your conservative fighter with a record to prove it. I listen, I solve problems, and I will never compromise our values. This is an important moment for our district and for Arizona. I thank you for your support and I ask for your vote.

Picture7.png

KELLY TOWNSEND

STATE SENATOR - DISTRICT NO. 16

I’m very humbled that you have allowed me to represent you and I want you to know that I work hard on your behalf. This last term I was elected Majority Whip by my fellow Representatives and was honored to give our district a seat at the leadership table. I continue to vote for balanced budgets and policies to protect and create jobs, strengthen education, increase classroom funding and teacher pay, and find creative funding streams that bolster our economy while cutting taxes. I’ve protected your 2nd Amendment rights, defended the Constitution, protected the unborn, fought for border security, advocated for veteran's rights, fought Federal overreach, protected family values, cleaned up the Department of Child Safety, and more. I helped lead the effort to pass a Balanced Budget Amendment, I’ve won the Friend of the Family and Hero of the Taxpayer awards, fought to block ObamaCare, and opposed Common Core in favor of high education standards that come from Arizona parents and teachers. I want a smaller and more responsive government, greater liberty, a fiscally responsible state, a strong economy, respect for the rule of law, and stronger families. If you agree, I ask for your vote. Thank you!

Picture8.png

J.D. MESNARD

STATE SENATOR - DISTRICT NO. 17

During my time in office I have written laws that helped create jobs, directed more money into classrooms, established programs to protect survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse, outlawed "revenge porn" (a despicable practice that victimizes women), helped employees get wages rightfully owed, and promoted veteran-friendly college campuses. I’ve won Guardian of Small Business, Champion of the Taxpayer, Friend of the Family, and Open Government Leader awards. I had the honor of being elected Speaker of the House where I helped pass good balanced budgets that reduced tax burdens while increasing school funding. I personally sponsored the largest education investment in state history—dramatically boosting teacher pay 20%, and wrote policies to ensure personal conduct by legislators is held to the high standards the public deserves. I now serve in the State Senate and I’m asking for your vote to continue this important work. As your state senator I'll continue to keep an open door, put my constituents first, and use my diverse background that includes husband, daddy, professor and small business owner, with master's degrees in business and public administration, to deliver for you.

SUZANNE SHARER

STATE SENATOR - DISTRICT NO. 18

I was born and raised in Arizona when the state was known for its good old-fashioned Barry Goldwater conservatism. My passion for Arizona and our country came from listening to my parents and grandparents talk about the issues of the day as we gathered around the family dinner table. There were six children in my family and my parents made it a point to teach us that the American dream comes from personal responsibility, hard work, and faith. We were taught that being an American was something to cherish. I raised my family on these same conservative principles and basic tenants of liberty, and now more than ever, I find they must be defended for the sake of our children and grandchildren. I have been fortunate to have a wonderful career in Real Estate over the last 28 years and have seen Arizona grow into one of the fastest growing states in the nation and am aware of the issues that it can bring along with this growth and I will fight to keep Arizona values in place.

Picture10.png

PAUL BOYER

STATE SENATOR - DISTRICT NO. 20

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. This past legislative session, we’ve navigated our way through the health crisis by supporting small businesses, helped residents stay in their homes or apartments, and continued to fund schools and teachers during the shutdown, meanwhile protecting health and safety. 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 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! Please visit my website to learn more and never hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or comments.

DAVID LIVINGSTON

STATE SENATOR - DISTRICT NO. 22

It was just a few years ago that you elected me to State House and now as your State Senator. I wanted to serve this great state and look after the taxpayers and families that live here. What a journey it has been. I have been honored to serve as Chairman Transportation Committee, I was elected Majority Whip by my peers, and this year I was asked to step up as Chairman of the Appropriations Committee and guide our state’s budget to passage. Still, I remember that my mission is to serve you all and so I continue to focus on improving our economy and attracting jobs, strengthening the family unit, protecting our state’s sovereignty, and restoring our Constitutional rights. I advocate for secure borders and I have a 100% pro-life and pro-2nd Amendment record. I have earned both the “Friend of the Family” award and the “Hero of the Taxpayer” award. I work for you and I promise to reward your support with a continued commitment to limited government and effective representation. I am running as a team with Ben Toma and Frank Carroll and know them to be outstanding conservatives as well. We ask for your vote!

It has been my honor and privilege to represent you in the state legislature for the last ten years. With your support, we have achieved many significant legislative accomplishments, and I am asking you to continue to entrust me with this responsibility which I do not take lightly.

I am a native and resident of Scottsdale, married and the mother of three young children.  I have always held a deep appreciation for the freedoms that make our state and country so great.  I entered public service to protect and promote our freedom and liberty. During my tenure, I have successfully led efforts to pass reforms that address healthcare, business regulations, and the tax code.  Now more than ever, we need a decisive leader with a proven record of getting results and that person is me. It is my experience that will prove invaluable as the legislature addresses these unprecedented times. As Chairman of the Commerce Committee, I will fight to re-energize our economy by increasing job growth and economic prosperity. Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your State Senator and I am asking for your support in the upcoming primary election on Tuesday, August 4th.

GARLAND SHREVES

STATE SENATOR - DISTRICT NO. 27

I want to improve the lives of those who live in our district regardless of political labels, economic status or backgrounds. I grew up poor in south Phoenix in a multi-cultural home, the youngest of 9 children. People are afraid to walk in the parks or neighborhoods, cars stolen, homes burglarized, business robbed, and citizens murdered. This district and the victims of these crimes deserve a Senator who will do something about the crime rate. The crime rate has a direct impact on economic development. Higher paying employers will not come until the crime rate is brought under control. Reducing crime will reduce auto and homeowner’s insurance and increase home values. I will protect your right to send your child to a traditional public school, a public charter school, in home school or school out of our district. The current incumbent doesn’t support your right of school choice. Criminal justice reform, mental illness, homelessness, water, education and poor internet service are some of the issues. I owned businesses and want to create opportunities that lift people out of poverty. Join me in making a better safer caring community.

JUDY BURGES

STATE REPRESENTATIVE - DISTRICT NO. 1

Judy Burges has remained a true un-apologetic “Constitutional Conservative” throughout her years of service in the legislature. She considers herself a “WE THE PEOPLE” Christian candidate that has a proven history supporting Constitutional freedoms such as: the 2nd Amendment, less government, lower taxes, border security, state sovereignty, free speech, school choice, pro-family values, and one’s right-to-life. President Reagan clearly stated “Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom, and then lost it, have never known it again.”

I am proud to serve as your State Representative. From tackling critical issues like lowering our state income tax to responsibly investing in our local schools and infrastructure, I believe government is like your tax bill: the smaller the better. Join me in protecting our great state by keeping our communities safe and standing up for our Constitutional rights.

I’m Joel John, candidate for the Arizona House of Representatives in Legislative District 4. District 4 needs a representative who will prioritize your interests, someone with deep roots in the district. Our economy is powered by both small businesses and agriculture.

I will work to eliminate unnecessary roadblocks so our district’s economy can grow. Our kids are top priority. I grew up attending our public schools in District 4, my kids attend public schools, and I'm a former public school teacher. We should have the best schools in the state right here in District 4.

DAVID COOK

STATE REPRESENTATIVE - DISTRICT NO. 8

I’m in my second term and I'm keeping my promises -- to be a strong voice for rural Arizona, to protect taxpayers and keep our budget balanced, to increase school funding and teacher pay, and to improve our transportation and water infrastructure. I've kept those promises and many others. As the only rancher in the legislature, I’m involved in lots of issues dealing with the ranching, agriculture, and farming communities in our state. I have a pro-Constitution, pro-family values, and pro-taxpayer voting record because I know that preserving and expanding freedom is my most solemn responsibility. My record is 100% pro-2nd Amendment, 100% pro-Life, and 100% pro-Taxpayer. And I continue to fight to ensure we get our share of funding for projects like the Tonto Bridge, often over the objections of Maricopa County legislators. There are too many politicians at the State Capitol and not enough of us regular folks who do the jobs that make Arizona work. I'll keep working my tail off to do the very best I can for you and I ask for your vote. On behalf of my awesome wife Diana and our amazing kids, thank you for your support and your continued trust!

It has been my privilege to represent you in the Arizona State Legislature. I have lived in Arizona my entire life and have operated a farm and small business for many years. My wife is an educator. My son was born and raised here; the grandchildren live here too. In meetings with thousands of ordinary people in our district, they have told me about their concerns and I take them very seriously. 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. I have received a lot of recognition for playing an important role in putting policies in place that attract jobs to rural Arizona. I will continue to work for policies to create more and better jobs. You have my word that l will always put you and your family first in the State Legislature. I would be honored to receive your vote.

BRENDAN LYONS

STATE REPRESENTATIVE - DISTRICT NO. 9

Brendan Lyons is an energetic and results driven candidate. Over the past decade, he’s earned a positive reputation as a community leader and has developed a track record of winning quality of life improvements for Arizona. His journey into public service began when he fulfilled his childhood dream of becoming a firefighter. As a public safety advocate, he became concerned about distracted driving after responding to far too many crashes. In 2012, he launched “LOOK! Save A Life” in Southern Arizona, which fosters an environment of safety for all who utilize our public roads. A year later, he became a statistic of the very message he was advocating; struck from behind by a distracted motorist while bicycling. As he recovered, he threw himself into fighting for tougher laws against distracted driving, putting pressure on local jurisdictions throughout the state to adopt policies to make our roads safer. Then in April 2019, Governor Ducey signed Arizona’s Hands-Free bill into law. Brendan holds a Masters in Public Administration focusing in Collaborative Governance. Southern Arizona deserves a brilliant future and Brendan Lyons will continue to be a results-driven leader who works across party lines to deliver on issues that we all care about.

MARK FINCHEM

STATE REPRESENTATIVE - DISTRICT NO. 11

I have dedicated myself to reducing the size and impact of government over our lives. Politicians of the past have spent us into oblivion, and it will not be easy to restore sanity in spending in the halls of bureaucracy. We need tough representation that holds people accountable for what they do with our tax dollars. Over the last two terms of service, I have demonstrated strong leadership, conservative values, and fidelity to our Constitutions, both State and Federal. We have turned a corner in Arizona, and I believe we are on the path to correct errors of the past with a common-sense approach to limited government. Mine has been a life of service in both the private and public sectors, and service often means sacrifice. That worth having always has a cost; our children are depending on us to make wise choices resulting in personal freedoms, employment opportunities, and a balanced state budget. I ask for your vote to keep the momentum going toward personal freedom, economic security and a debt-free future for ourselves and our Posterity.

STATE REPRESENTATIVE - DISTRICT NO. 12

I believe that as public servants we must put the people we represent first and do everything in our power to keep government limited and effective in its core functions. Upon being elected to the Higley School Board in 2012, I worked day in and day out to make our students, families, teachers, classrooms, and taxpayers our top priorities. And since being elected to the Queen Creek Town Council in 2016, I have worked tirelessly and collaboratively to make Queen Creek the most free, prosperous, and vibrant community possible. Legislative District 12, Gilbert and Queen Creek, has been blessed for many years with principled, stalwart conservative leadership.

Gilbert & Queen Creek, and the people who call them home, are the embodiment of the all-American charm, character and values that have made our nation exceptional for generations.

STEVE KAISER

STATE REPRESENTATIVE - DISTRICT NO. 15

What an amazing state we live in! Breathtaking beauty, affordability and economic growth are all reasons why I choose to live in Arizona with my wife and three boys. I’m a pro-life pro-freedom conservative that will stand up for limited government, individual liberties and pro-growth policies. I love this state and I know this district well. I grew up here! I attended public schools in PVUSD from Kindergarten to Senior year, GO HUSKIES! We must demand high quality, high performing schools and ensure every parent can choose the best school for their child. I went back to school while working to get my Masters Degree in Public Administration at GCU. In addition to education I also value service. I served eight years as an Army Officer, leading a team of Soldiers in Afghanistan as a Captain in 2008. My professional experience consists of management in retail, healthcare, non-profit and government sectors. All of those experiences culminated in me running my own business, a local junk hauling and recycling company called Junk King. Above all I want to protect and grow this great state. If elected I will keep a mentality of servant leadership at the heart of everything I do.

JOHN FILLMORE

STATE REPRESENTATIVE - DISTRICT NO. 16

I am a veteran, a businessman, and an entrepreneur. I know how difficult it is to find a good job, make payroll and provide health insurance. I know the headaches of meeting budgets as well as the importance of an educated workforce, the dangers of illicit drug use, and the significance of our children’s dreams to society’s future. District 16 needs a STRONG CONSERVATIVE voice and representation. Our city and counties are not receiving their fair share of state funds and I will work to get more road and infrastructure dollars. I support securing our borders and amnesty is not the answer. We need to secure the border and do it now. Employers need an easy way to verify legal status. Arizona must stop spending our limited resources providing health and education benefits to illegal immigrants. Our teachers just received a 20% raise without any accountability for the failing AZ Merit/AIMS test scores. Our College are bankrupting our children before they even get to the workforce. Arizona must work smarter and closer with the local communities to promote growth, education and opportunity. I am asking for your vote to be your voice for more responsible Government. VOTE JOHN FILLMORE Thanks.

JACQUELINE PARKER

STATE REPRESENTATIVE - DISTRICT NO. 16

As the MOST CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN candidate, I’m running to keep Arizona red and stop us from turning into California! I am 100% Pro-Life, Pro-Constitution, Pro-Limited Government, Pro-Family, & Pro-Religious Freedom. I’m a lifelong Republican and currently a PC and State Committeeman for LD-16. I’m a born and raised Arizona native, but I’ve traveled all over the country while earning a B.A. in Philosophy from BYU, an M.A. in Literature from ASU, and a J.D. from USF in California. I’m fluent in Spanish having served church and medical missions in Texas, Mexico, Ecuador, and Nicaragua, so I understand better than most what is needed to secure our borders and stop illegal immigration. After joining the Arizona State Bar and spending several years in private practice, I’m currently a legal policy advisor at the Corporation Commission where I draft policy and legislation that has limited government and put money back into the pockets of Arizona rate payers. With my education and training, I’m the most qualified candidate to start fighting back on Day 1 against the democrat agenda infusing our legislature. Arizona voters deserve new conservative leadership with a proven ability to deliver results and solutions. Remember PARKER on your PRIMARY ballot.

I have served the people of my district through a span of nearly three decades, successfully navigating many of the difficult issues faced by the State during that time. I both lead and follow as the issues demand and have a reputation of being tough but fair.

BILL LOUGHRIGE

STATE REPRESENTATIVE - DISTRICT NO. 26

The Loughrige family has been in Tempe since 1933. Bill retired as a Senior Special Agent for the US Customs Service after 35 years in Law Enforcement. After retirement he has operated a PI Process Serving and Security Guard service. Active in the community, Bill is currently President of the Tempe Sunrise Kiwanis and the Walker Fire Protection Association near Prescott, AZ. A wage earner all his life, and part of a large active family, he believes a strong family is important. Freedom from governmental restrictions allows success and a strong culture. There is a place for regulation, but they should be aimed to allow growth. Government restrictions have made keeping a nuclear family together difficult and at the same time made access to help so restrictive that many people just give up and sometimes even end up on the street. Bill’s platform is independent living and security for seniors and children. We need to know our children and seniors are safe and secure in their life and possessions. We need government to shore up partnerships with private organizations to provide food, shelter and safety for those that need it.

SETH "MARCUS" SIFUENTES

STATE REPRESENTATIVE - DISTRICT NO. 26

My name is Seth Marcus Sifuentes, and I am running for the Arizona State Legislature in District 26. I am a Navy Veteran, husband and father of three, a blue-collar worker with experience as a helicopter mechanic, field engineer in the semi-conductor field and a Naval Reservist. One thing I have never been is a politician. I was too young when the 2010 Tea-Party kicked off, but the power of a grass-roots movement in shaking up a political system was truly inspirational to me. We made a return to the political model that was laid forth by our founding fathers, that public policy is not meant to be dictated only by lawyers, executives, and lobbyists. It is also meant to be run by the farmers, manufacturers, medical professionals, teachers and more. My goal is to fight for the middle class. I am not accepting any PAC or corporate money of any type, because I have faith that with a strong enough message and help from voters who truly care about their community we can accomplish our mission and make the future of Arizona brighter for our children and grandchildren. Continued Service, Seth Marcus Sifuentes
