Legislator of the Year; Arizona Citizens Defense League Friend of the Taxpayer; Americans for Prosperity Friend of Cities & Towns; Arizona League of Cities & Towns Friend of Small Business; Arizona NFIB
Government should be on your side not in your way! My priorities are strong community colleges, increased highway funding, insured future water supplies, and healthy forests.
I am a pragmatic independently minded rural conservative. I believe strongly, that government should not be the fuel of the economy; it should be the lubricant that keeps economies and communities growing and flourishing. I served as part of the leadership team that passed sweeping job generating legislation and balanced our state budget.
My pro-business agenda earned me NFIB?s Hero of Small Business award, and the endorsements of the Arizona Chamber of Commerce, as well as the Arizona Association of General Contractors. In 2014 I was named a Friend of the Taxpayer by Americans for Prosperity, rated A+ by the NRA and endorsed by the Arizona Cattleman's Association. My record demonstrates that I am mainstream not extreme.
My Pioneer family settled in eastern Arizona in 1870, making me a 5th generation native. Your vote will allow me to continue working for you and standing tall for our beautiful state and the land we love.
