There is nothing more important to the future of our state and the entire southwest region of our country than our access to water. I have spent most of my time in public service, as a state legislator, concerned citizen and community leader, and now in the United States House of Representatives, working extensively on Arizona water issues.

For 35 days, thousands of hardworking Arizonans – park rangers, border patrol and prison agents, and scientists – went without their paychecks. Across the country, private businesses suffered, national parks were irreparably damaged, and air travel was threatened. All for a dispute over the merits of a policy proposal.

This is not how governing works.

As we begin the new year and a new Congress, I look forward to working with my colleagues to pass bipartisan legislation that invests in rural communities and holds elected leaders accountable to the American people. For too long, partisanship and political games have been the norm in Congress, and I want to see that end.

For 83 years, Social Security and Medicare have given retirees, disabled workers, and families across the country health and economic security. These programs are not only a lifeline for more than 155,000 Arizonans in the First Congressional District, they also play an important role in local economies across the state.

Over the course of our nation’s history, millions of brave men and women stepped up and vowed to protect our communities from those who wish to do us harm. We have made a solemn commitment to support those returning brave soldiers and their families, but sadly, Congress has failed to address the most pressing issues impacting these Americans for too long.

As a former law enforcement officer, I locked up sexual predators and sex traffickers who preyed on children and young men and women.

Education and workforce training programs are key to creating a generation of Americans who are prepared to fill 21st century jobs.


Investing in education at every level not only benefits our children and families, it is also an investment in our state and country’s economic future.
