Everything I do is driven by my commitment to responsible government, family values, and improving our quality of life.
The situation at our southern border is entirely out of control and we must do everything in our power to stop the invasion. A secure border will keep Arizona safe and prevent drugs and human trafficking from wreaking havoc in our communities. While I support legal immigration that promotes growth for Arizona families, jobs, and communities, a nation without borders is not a nation. We need to protect our nation’s citizens and not let the cartels operate freely across our border. We must finish the border wall. We must get serious about empowering state and law enforcement to crack down on drug and human trafficking. We will secure our southern border.
COVID-19 is a very contagious and for some, a very serious disease, but I am staunchly opposed to fighting it with government-mandated shutdowns. I believe the private sector is able to make the necessary adjustments to keep businesses open while also implementing common-sense health measures to slow the spread of the disease. The best way to defeat COVID-19 is with the strongest economy possible – not a self-inflicted weak one.
The right to vote in a free and fair election is the most basic American civil right and a cornerstone upon which many other core rights stand. The integrity of our elections has also historically set us apart from countries worldwide, making us a global beacon for democracy and freedom. Every Arizonan should be able to trust our voting process and electoral outcomes. It’s vital that our citizens have full faith and confidence that their vote is counted and that elections are free from fraud. Therefore, I fully support mandatory voter ID, banning ballot harvesting, and improving transparency in our elections. I will continue to fight for election integrity to ensure free and fair elections across Arizona.
I’m pro-life. The Supreme Court just gave us a major victory and returned the power to each state legislature to protect life by overturning Roe v. Wade. The rights of the unborn must be protected, and I will ALWAYS fight attempts by Democrats to make access to abortions easier. As your legislator, I’ll continue to support the laws we’ve passed that protect the unborn and safeguard the sanctity of life. While the overturning of Roe v. Wade was a victory, the war to protect life is far from over. We must remain vigilant and committed to opposing the Democrats who want to change Arizona laws to enable access to abortion at all stages of pregnancy. That won’t happen on my watch.
I believe the best way to grow the economy and recover from this downturn is to get the government out of the way. Regulations that hinder growth need to be repealed, and government budgets must be scrutinized so we can trim bloat and reduce taxes. Business owners will invest their capital to expand and create jobs if they can keep more of their hard-earned money and have less red tape to deal with.
Government should spend taxpayer dollars as efficiently and respectfully as possible. This means government should constantly be looking for ways to save taxpayer dollars and to ensure there is very minimal waste. Government should not bail itself out with tax hikes during economic downturns. Instead, just like any family in Arizona, it should tighten its belt, trim waste, and live within its means.
I fully support our Constitutional right to bear arms. The freedom to defend oneself is a very necessary and practical freedom, especially during this time of riots and pushes to de-fund police departments. I have and will continue to oppose all efforts to curb our freedom to own and operate firearms.
Franky, I think it’s insane to push for de-funding the police. The vast majority of police officers are great people who try their absolute best to keep us safe while fairly enforcing the law. I will always support our law enforcement community and their efforts to keep our communities safe.
The best thing we can do for Arizona children is to give them options on where to go to school and while I’ve been a legislator, we’ve done just that. I fully support school choice. I designed and we recently passed legislation that allows you to choose how you spend your education tax dollars. We funded students, not programs. I want to ensure you have a say in how your money is spent on education and where you send your children to school. I believe competition in education is the #1 way to increase the quality of our education system and to see that our best teachers make the salaries they deserve.
