Arizona Legislative District (LD) 20 (an area that includes parts of Phoenix, Moon Valley, and Glendale) presents excellent pickup opportunities for the Democrats in the State House and State Senate.

The Democrats running in LD 20 (Judy Schwiebert in the House and Doug Ervin in the Senate) are well qualified and ready to serve the people in the district.

On August 17, 2020, both Schwiebert and Ervin participated in the Clean Elections sponsored debate for district candidates.

Only one of the Republicans, Anthony Kearn, chose to appear at the event.

The other two Republican candidates, Shawnna Bolick (House) and Paul Boyer (Senate) chose not to attend.

For that reason alone, the people should not reward them with a return to the State Legislature.

After the debate, the two Democrats offered their view of the event.

Ms. Schwiebert commented:

“I always welcome the opportunity to discuss the issues important to our community. I’m glad that people in LD 20 were able to submit questions so we could address the issues they care about. The result is an interesting conversation that I hope helps voters make their decision.”

Mr. Ervin wrote:

“I was happy to participate in the Clean Elections debate as I believe it is important that candidates and elected officials be available to listen to people in our community and better understand the issues important to them. It is unfortunate that my opponent chose not to attend.”
