Local, grass roots organizations I have served
Passionate About Education
When we talk about Economic Development, the importance of education goes hand-in-hand. Having first hand experience watching my son progress through our education system, there are things we do well, and things we can do better. With the arrival of Lucid Motors and Nikola Corp, we have to be ready to provide a skilled workforce to fulfill their employment needs. We get one chance at this critical first impression. Our success will set the tone for future companies who are considering Pinal County as their home.
Experience counts and there's nothing better than eight years of hands on experience. This has afforded me the ability to understand the needs and to recognize opportunities for the citizens of our communities. I have strong relationships with the staff and officials in the cities and towns and know how to get things done. A key attribute to serving the citizens of District 4 has been to always be accessible. My commitment is to always be working to improve the safety and quality of life for our citizens.
Making a Difference
Giving back to our community is a way of life in our family. My son was a founder of the Community Garden in the City of Maricopa that grew and provided fresh produce for our local food bank. We worked side by side for five years and with some wonderful volunteers, produced over 34,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables for those in need.
St. Jude Children's Hospital is one of the many charitable organizations I have immersed myself in. I have found that going the extra mile (or 26) is always worth the reward of knowing my efforts positively affected the lives of others.
It's a GREAT time to live in Pinal County! Did you know: Pinal County is the fastest growing county in the country with a population of less than one million? We have so many exciting projects coming to the county that will provide jobs, boost our economy and, of course, lower our tax rate. With the arrival of Lucid Motors, Nikola Corp, and others, we are looking at over 5,000 new jobs that will be created in the very near future!
