Representing the 1st District of Arizona

Education

Fostering a healthy educational environment at a young age is critical for future academic achievement for Arizona students. We must also continue to invest in our elementary and secondary education, and ensure our students are receiving the best education. I support legislation that makes college, vocational programs, and other skill training opportunities more accessible to people who seek higher education.
