Candidates run for office for many reasons – not just to replace Common Core.  Consider these candidates and their views on a host of issues before you vote:

Diane Douglas, candidate for Superintendent of Public Instruction:  You know Diane’s stance against Common Core in Arizona, but did you know what else Diane will do when she’s elected?  [Read more]

Proposition 480: Blank check or a shot in the arm for Arizona?

Have you noticed the new hospitals being built in the valley over the past 10 years?  Why are we doubling down on a taxpayer – funded hospital that competes with them?  It makes no sense to increase taxes on small businesses that have seen their taxes rise 30% between 2009 and 2013 and are barely recovering from the recession.  Read this piece from the experts at the Arizona Tax Research Association - Arizona’s taxpayer watchdogs.  Further reading: Vote No on Prop. 480;  it’s expensive and unwise and Vote No on 480

Of my 23 Prime Sponsored bills, 15 were signed into law this session.  All passed with overwhelming bi-partisan support, if not unanimously.

At 65%, that is the highest % of bills passed by a lawmaker this session.  Here’s the Arizona Capitol Times piece: Barto, Lovas lead in percentage of bills signed into law.

I am proud of these successes because each of them address concerns that are important to our state – and don’t increase the scope of government.   In fact, in many cases, they reduced regulation, solved a critical issue, expanded consumer information or choice or kept an “out-of-control” board government agency in check.  Here are some examples: [Read more]

Help candidates with online petition signatures

October 24, 2013
