I'm a Conservative

I'm pro-life and believe life begins at conception. I believe in the Second Amendment. Capitalism is greatest economic system in the history of the world. The United States of America is the greatest country on Earth. I'm in favor of fiscal responsibility and smaller government. If you have any questions about these or any other issues, please contact me.


Economic Development

Much like Arizona as a whole, LD1 is a mix of growing urban environments and rural agricultural and mining areas. As we continue to grow, we need to make sure that there are new jobs available for those that want them in the cities and towns while also protecting the traditional rural industries. To do this, we need to make Arizona an even more friendly place for business by keeping tax rates low and keep regulation to a reasonable level.


Education is critical for the future of America. We need to prepare the next generation of workers and leaders. The best way to do that is to ensure that there is competition in the schools. When we provide options for students, they get to take advantage of whatever style of learning works best for them.

I believe in the value of college education, however career and technical education at the high school level and beyond can provide opportunities for those who want to work in more hands on types of fields.


As a rural district, we should be very concerned with our infrastructure 

situation. As we grow, we need to continue to grow and maintain our rural highway system. We need to make sure that we have enough water available as well as power.

Though it's not a particular issue in LD1, the rural broadband network needs to be extended as well. We will not be able to attract employers and jobs to rural areas without maintaining our infrastructure.
