Most people who elect public servants to represent them expect those individuals to advance their interests.

Those interests would certainly include legislation that:

  • Reduces the cost of drugs.
  • Provides background checks for gun purchases.
  • Ensured equal pay for men and women.
  • Safeguarded the nation’s election system and individual voting rights.
  • Promotes equal rights for members of the LGBTQ Community.
  • Protected the sick from losing health care coverage because of pre-existing conditions.
  • Raise the minimum wage.
  • Create a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers.
  • Prevent unsafe climate mining activities in areas like the Grand Canyon and Artic Wildlife Preserve.
  • Protect women from violence.
  • Stop the President from acting like he is above the law.

Representative David Schweikert (R-CD6), as shown below in a chart provided by the Anita Malik Congressional Campaign and confirmed by Votesmart, has not voted for any of the above Democratic measures that would have helped the great majority of the constituents in his Congressional District Six and the other citizens in Arizona and around the country.

Schweikert has shown that he is not a “man of the people” looking out for their best interests.

The people of Congressional District Six will have a choice to make in 2020.

Do they want to reelect a person who does not represent them or do they want to select one of the three qualified and capable Democratic contenders (Anita Malik, Stephanie Rimmer, or Dr. Hiral Tipirneni) who will support legislation that benefits the people and moves the district, the state, and the country forward?

There are 308 days to decide.

Choose wisely.
