Issues & Concerns
Creating the Future We Deserve
Everyone deserves a fair chance to succeed. Our nation’s success is built on the founding principles of unlimited opportunity, quality education, commitment to hard work, and the freedom to pursue our dreams. I fought to protect these liberties as a United States Marine. And will continue to fight for them as your Senator in District 11 each and every day to ensure that our communities are advancing towards meeting these founding principles.
Serving on the school board, I've seen how the lack of funding affects our children's ability to succeed. Funding education is a priority. Fully funding education means that we address all aspects of education, which includes paying our teachers a competitive wage and addressing the infrastructure issues that make our schools unsafe. It also means equipping our schools with tools and resources that will help our children succeed.
Military, Veterans, & Families
Our military service members and their families make sacrifices for our nation every day. The least we can do is ensure that they are taken care of when they leave active duty. Veterans often struggle to get jobs leaving them vulnerable to homelessness, mental health issues, and feeling like they don't belong. We must ensure that our Veterans have what they need. This means ensuring that they can secure employment, access healthcare and mental health services, and support for their families. They served, now it's time for us to serve them.
Enhancing the health of Arizona's population Is important, especially in rural areas where it’s needed the most. Rural residents often have poorer health due to the lack of preventative and health care services. We must ensure rural residents have access to affordable health care that meets their needs. Additionally, we must ensure that we continue to provide funding to KidsCare which provides healthcare for children who would not otherwise have healthcare. Folks in District 11 deserve access to affordable quality healthcare that includes family planning services like coverage of contraception and reproductive services.
This particular issue has been increasingly gaining coverage all over the world. Why exactly? We are seeing an increase in abuse and neglect of our beautiful land. We are also facing a water-shortage crisis that we must find innovated solutions to mitigate. And time is running out. I am proud to support and push for change throughout the community, especially when it comes to the environment. We must do everything that we can to ensure that our children and generations to come have a bright future.
