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.

HEATHER CARTER

STATE SENATOR - DISTRICT NO. 15

She listens to her constituents and works hard to protect hard-working taxpayers. Her and her husband live in North Phoenix and their daughter recently graduated from a local, public high school.

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!

HOP NGUYEN

STATE SENATOR - DISTRICT NO. 22

I am a resident of the city of Surprise who is seeking the State Senate seat in Legislative District 22. As a legal immigrant who had the unique experience of having to rebuild my life and career multiple times due to circumstances beyond my control, I understand well the needs, struggles and hopes of a wide cross section of the citizens of the State of Arizona. My purpose in running is to promote the security and prosperity of this state, and to seek the liberty, well-being and dignity of its citizens. I am also unashamedly Christian, seeking to defend freedom of religion and the sanctity of human life from conception to old age. I have been a productive citizen for the last 44 years, being employed anywhere from janitor to project manager. I have a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Computer Science and a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies and have had many years of experience in the civil engineering, non-profit and banking industry and am currently employed at a local Credit Union.

ALEXANDER KOLODIN

STATE SENATOR - DISTRICT NO. 23

I’m running for senate for a simple reason – I love Arizona. This state, and all of you, have given me so much. It’s here that I was raised, met my wife, and built a business. I was educated in Arizona public schools and I’ve made a home here with you in beautiful Scottsdale. Arizona is special because Arizona is free. Starting a business fresh out of school is hard enough: I could have never done it in a state that put unnecessary obstacles in the path of entrepreneurs. Buying a home is tough enough: I could have never done it in a place where the government makes it hard to build housing and taxes property to the hilt. I know that so many of you have similar stories. That so many of you have done things that nobody thought possible and share my same love for this place we call home. Every day I am inspired by my friends and neighbors in legislative district 23. You have so much to be proud of. You deserve a senator you can be proud of too. I would be deeply humbled by your support.

MICHELLE UGENTI-RITA

STATE SENATOR - DISTRICT NO. 23

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.”

STEVEN SENSMEIER

STATE REPRESENTATIVE - DISTRICT NO. 1

From an early age I was a Republican, declaring at age 3 that Hillary Clinton was a witch and proudly exclaiming that Newt Gingrich was the Speaker of the House. That always shocked quite a few people, but as a fourth generation Republican activist I've always felt that it's just in my blood. After graduating from Prescott High School and earning my Eagle Scout Award, I attended Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University where I received my degree in Global Security and Intelligence Studies. While there I joined the College Republicans eventually serving as President. I also served as the Vice-Chairman and Chairman of the Arizona Federation of College Republicans. I've been involved in local politics for more than 10 years. I volunteered for my first campaign during the 2008 Presidential Election and have volunteered or worked on more than a dozen campaigns since. I've also worked as a Field Director for the Arizona Republican Party as well as for the Martha McSally for Senate Campaign.

DEBORAH MCEWEN

STATE REPRESENTATIVE - DISTRICT NO. 2

Deborah grew up in the Midwest in a quiet river town full of traditional family farms, sweetcorn festivals and rodeos. She's a second generation US Citizen from Hungarian immigrants. Typical Sunday mornings involved church going and brunching with friends. Band, choir and sporting events were the highlights of school and to this day, as with most people, strong bonds connect old school chums across the miles. Deborah's father was a corrections commissioner and her mother was an elementary teacher. After graduating from college, she started her career in criminal justice and worked for federal and state agencies in forensic laboratories and private industry. Accuracy, methodology, and aptitude for comprehension and technical writing skills propelled her career into a branch of management where this expertise was used in quality assurance regulation of nation-wide laboratories. She is now retired and enjoys spending time with her family and pets. Deborah volunteers with a national non-partisan self-governance organization whose primary goal is to educate citizens on the constitution and their role at the grassroots level. Her desire is to serve all citizens and insure they enjoy the freedoms that are endowed by our US Constitution and bestowed by our Divine maker.

STATE REPRESENTATIVE - DISTRICT NO. 4

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. We have unique education needs and hardworking people. It should be easier to run a small business and produce crops in our state. 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. I will give you a voice in your child’s education by returning more control to the local school districts where it belongs. Finally, I will protect our constitutional freedoms. I believe in our right to defend ourselves, the right to life, free speech, and religious freedom. As a husband, father of four, fourth generation Arizonan from a farming family, and CEO of a small agricultural irrigation business, I’m uniquely qualified to represent you.

I love being able to have effected positive change for our district and our state. The hard work has paid off as more and more companies choose Arizona as the place to relocate. I have enjoyed working to secure additional funding for our local community colleges; taking care of our veterans; helping our first responders; funding our transportation/infrastructure needs. I served as Chairman of Land, Agriculture, Rural Affairs committee; Vice-Chairman of Energy, Environment and Natural Resources committee; Chairman of Rural Caucus. I will continue to defend our constitutional rights, our state sovereignty, and traditional family values. Thank you for your continued support and allowing me to serve.

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.

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.

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.

JARRET HAMSTREET

STATE REPRESENTATIVE - DISTRICT NO. 15

I moved to Arizona to earn my MBA degree at The University of Arizona. After graduating, I launched a logistics software business in 2010 at the tail-end of the Great Recession. It wasn’t easy, but through hard work and persistence, we managed to assemble a team and build a product that attracted investors and customers during challenging economic times. As we begin to grapple with the economic fallout from the Coronavirus, I’ve reflected on the skills I can offer as your State Representative to help get our state’s economy back on track. I will bring my experiences making tough decisions, attracting investment to our state, carefully managing budgets and maximizing results with limited resources to our State Capitol. My priorities as your State Representative will include keeping taxes and regulations low, opposing unnecessary government programs and investing in our students so they are prepared for the careers of tomorrow. I’m a proud, limited-government Conservative who’s committed to border security, protecting the sanctity of life, market-based reforms of our education and health care systems and who will defend our Constitutional Rights. Never hesitate to call or email with questions or to share how I can serve you and your family!

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.

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.

LISA GODZICH

STATE REPRESENTATIVE - DISTRICT NO. 16

I'm running to give conservatives another strong voice at our Capitol, and to defend our values, our families, and our Constitution! With one seat open we need to elect someone who will work to limit the size of government, boost our economy, keep our schools improving, cut taxes and regulations, and return government to its proper limited role in our lives. I’m a strong supporter of our 2nd Amendment rights, I’m pro-life, pro-family, pro-school choice, and I believe that secure borders means a real wall. As a Respiratory Therapist I make life and death decisions every day. I’m far too familiar with how government creates more problems in healthcare than it solves. That’s why I remain committed to attacking the Opioid Crisis that affects our seniors and our youth. I want to make sure Veterans get the respect and top class healthcare they deserve; I serve on US Congressman Andy Biggs’ Veterans Affairs Committee. A lifelong Republican, I am President of Mesa Republican Women and on the board of the Arizona Federation of Republican Women. I have lived in Arizona for over twenty years and currently reside in Mesa with my husband and our two children.

JOHN FOREST MORIARTY

STATE REPRESENTATIVE - DISTRICT NO. 16

I am a firm believer in the creed God, Country, Family. Why? My father raised me on US Military bases from West Germany, to South Korea and from Ft. Rucker Alabama & Ft. Eustis Virginia to Ft. Ord California. We went through Checkpoint Charlie into EAST Berlin when the wall still divided east and west, we walked behind the hidden bookcase into the attic where Anne Frank wrote her famous diary, and we visited Hitler's Eagles Nest. This upbringing and parental guided education shaped me into a fervent America-First nationalist who believes in the divinely inspired Constitution of the United States and righteousness of our nation. Socialism and Communism... used to be justifiably hated and despised by all Americans, until it was allowed to creep into public schools, colleges, and our media. The most vile threat we Americans face, is allowing ourselves or our children to be duped into believing the biggest lie of the 20th century, that Government can do a better job at running people's lives than they can. VOTE for FOREST JOHN MORIARTY!

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.

NORA ELLEN

STATE REPRESENTATIVE - DISTRICT NO. 17

As a small business owner I’ve spent a career dealing with the ways our government can help or hinder. It is actually one of the reasons I first ran for office.

Today, Chandler is Arizona’s best run city and I’m honored by the number of people who have asked me to run for State House and to take these same priorities and values to the state level. That means balanced budgets and a strong job-producing economy. That means protecting the taxpayers and families of Arizona. That means looking after our veterans, our schools, our teachers, our roads and infrastructure, and our first responders. It means protecting our liberties, human life, and school choice. It means defending our Constitution, protecting our military bases, and securing our borders. If you want a Proven Champion for Taxpayers and Families, I ask for your vote!

JAQUELINE "JACQUI" FOX

STATE REPRESENTATIVE - DISTRICT NO. 23

Energy should be my middle name. I have that, plus experience as an Occupational Therapist in healthcare and education settings for over 30 years while running successful businesses. Preservation is the key to keeping our fast growing district beautiful. We want great city and entertainment districts and suburbs. We don't want to "californiate" our state. We want to share it and preserve it. We love our wildlife, animals, open spaces, sports, and families. Protecting them is vital to our community. We want to protect all our vets because they protected us. That is what we do! No veterans should be in our streets and teachers should have the tools to teach to innovation rather than tests. Preparation for the future is more important than ever before. Protecting the most vulnerable is what we as an affluent district can do. The young and the old will not be left behind. Together we have the intelligence to make this an outstanding district in the United States. I want better communication, collaboration, and participation and it will be great! No more politicians, creative conservatives like Trump is what we need. Check the box for FOX!
