Education: Bachelor’s, DeVry University, 2006 (I am the first person in my family to complete college).

Interests: Family, community service, animals (rescue animals in particular), computers (hardware and software – yes, I am a geek) and motorcycles.

Political influence: The most influential person in my political development is Don MacDonald, a dear friend who got me into politics (he told me to stop complaining and put my money where my mouth is) in 2007.

Job creation measures: Tax incentives for the true job creators – mom and pop businesses. Improve funding for public education.

Top Issues: Providing representation for the people; this is supposed to be, after all, a government for, by and of the people. Undoing Citizen’s United and removing ALEC from our legislature. Restoring funding to Planned Parenthood.

Prop 100 sales tax extension: I favor it only if we can’t get back the tax giveaways to “needy” billionaire corporations.

Illegal immigration: If you really want to undermine immigration, there are two ways: Do what Reagan did, which was to grant amnesty, and prosecute ALL corporations and companies that send for and hire these workers while restoring the old agriculture workers plan.

Background & experience: Nothing I have learned can prepare me to be a legislator any more than reading books can prepare someone for parenthood. It’s learn as you go.

Pro-life / pro-choice: I personally hate abortion, which is why I support Planned Parenthood as they are responsible for the drop in abortions since Roe v Wade.

One last thing: I am no politician. I run for office because I love Arizona and cannot stand by while it is destroyed bit by bit. I can promise that I will support only living, breathing human beings, not representatives of ALEC, corporations, or CAP.

Campaign finance: public.
