    “It is with absolute passion and enthusiasm that I respectfully submit my nomination to serve legislative district 9 at the Arizona House of Representatives. The Arizona Legislature has a long history of achievements and works diligently to build and develop this great state we live in. Over the years our legislators have become an essential component for organizational leadership on issues that I hold in high regard related to public policy, the state budget, and resource opportunities.
    My interest in serving the House stems from my life’s work and passion around partnerships with community, collaborations with private industry, and my belief in ethical values. I have many years of experience working in both private and nonprofit sectors promoting and advancing human services, economic development programs, and shaping policies that make life better. I have advocated for legislation that helps the creation of healthy children and stable families. Those who have worked with me can attest to my passion and involvement in collaborating at the local, state, and federal level.
    If elected I promise to bring deep commitment to represent Southern Arizona at the legislature as it moves forward to build a vibrant and effective force for all Arizonans.”
