After several lawmakers admitted to accepting gifts during the Fiesta Bowl fiasco and other legislators receiving favorable treatment and illegal gifts, the study by Harvard ranked Arizona last for all branches of government. Even on the eve of the teacher's strike, your lawmakers gave a tax break to coal instead of you.
And then came the teachers. The sight of 50,000 teachers and education advocates marching in solidarity to the State Capitol was inspiring. But despite the best efforts of #RedForEd, the Republican-led legislature’s new unsustainable, uncertain additions have only led us to improve over one state in the nation in education spending.
It’s clear - Arizonans are demanding change.
As a former newspaper editor, I am running on a pledge to bring sunshine and accountability to government. As a law-school graduate, I am running to reform our system. And, certainly, with a family full of teachers, I'm running to improve our education.
But I can't do it alone.
That's why we're hosting several exciting upcoming events:
Monthly Neighborhood Meeting, May 21, at 6:30 p.m.
3403 W. Cactus Road, Phoenix
Come meet other campaign volunteers, and join us as we strategize about the future of the campaign and decide how we're going to best use our resources inside the community.

Coffee & Conversation, May 26 at 10 a.m.
Mountain View Community Center, 1104 E. Grovers Avenue.
This campaign has always been about community. So, come for coffee and let’s talk about the issues you care about how I can best represent YOU at the state legislature.
