I'm a rancher, not a politician.
Rural Arizona faces some real challenges, and more regulations and government mandates are not the answer. I am running for reelection to the State Senate because our children and grandchildren deserve the same opportunities we've had. As your Senator - and the new Senate President, I am putting my 50 years of experience to work creating economic growth for our community. Joan and I have been married for nearly 40 years and raised our four children in Prescott, and we have been blessed with four grandchildren.
As a lifelong conservative Republican, I will continue to fight for the issues most important to Arizona's families and businesses. That means lower taxes, a balanced budget, protection of water and private property rights, secure borders, road improvements, school choice, and modernized forest management. I am optimistic about our future, but we must have responsible fiscal policies in place to preserve our freedom and allow us to prosper as a community.
I am grateful for the support I have received throughout my first term in office and ask you to continue to support my candidacy and vote for me in the August primary election and the November general election.
All the best,
Arizona State Senator - District 1
