As a Mom, I know the importance of a good education and I will be an ally of yours in this arena.
Education is not a one size fits all system. I believe parents are best equipped in making the best choice for their child’s education needs. And Arizona has plenty of educational options to choose.
As a product of a K-12 public district school education, I have worked most of my adult life on behalf of our school children.
Principals and teachers should be able to work together with parents on the best curriculum for their students.
Our children are our most undervalued resource. We need to ensure our investments are directly made to classrooms and teachers so that they have the necessary funds to compete in our evolving global economy.
Teachers should be rewarded for their children’s academic excellence. If students are excelling in their subject those teachers should receive additional compensation for their successes in their classroom.
Not all children learn at the same speed or in the same style. I support incubators of success we have experienced in our Arizona charter and district schools and believe the highest performing schools should be replicated across the state.
I am a strong advocate of STEM (Science, technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and STEAM (Science, technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) curriculum and schools. My own children attend a STEM-themed school and I have seen first hand the benefits of this education.
Government needs to be limited and spending needs to be retrained. I support a balanced budget as a step towards making Arizona prosperous.
My family does not spend out of its means and neither should our state government. I will work hard to ensure we are never again in a position where we have to sell state buildings just to keep our government functioning.
I am opposed to unfunded mandates handed down by the federal government and have worked to protect Arizona from them.
Each resident of Arizona should be in favor of transparent government. As taxpayers, we should be able to track every dollar the government spends so the process is out in the open. It is our right to know how each dollar is spent.
I am a firm believer in States' rights.
I believe the Founding Fathers knew what they were doing when they wrote the Constitution. To secure our liberties three branches of government were created. Further, splitting powers of government a second time between the national and state governments helps keep the federal government from further encroaching on our states' rights.
I have physically toured several parts of our southern border. I met with third generation ranchers who have been adversely affected by illegal immigration and human and drug trafficking.
I am proud of the success Arizona has already achieved in this area by cutting regulation, investing in our K-12 system and building a more predictable tax structure.
The recipe to strong free enterprise is a tax system that taxes all consumed income at the flattest rate. The government should not be picking winners and losers in the marketplace, or setting economic policies that will help one business over another. I am opposed to special interest, corporate subsidies.
Our small businesses are the backbone of our economy. We need a level playing field to help all businesses thrive. I will advocate on behalf of our small businesses to ensure the marketplace remains as fair to the future of their success.
The Founding Fathers never intended freedom of religion to become government opposition to religion. I support the ability of all Arizonans to live and work freely according to their deeply held religious beliefs.
One of my main priorities is protecting the sanctity of human life.
I believe in the right to keep and bear arms.
