Andrew On The Issues
1The best thing government can do to help our state’s economy recover is to support small business and help them exploit all of Arizona’s competitive advantages. That’s why we need to help grow new industries, like solar energy, space science, health care and manufacturing and bring good, high-paying jobs back to Arizona.
2With safety and security so important, the Republican’s demonizing our police, fire and border patrol professionals makes no sense. Just because you’re a member of a union doesn’t mean you’re gouging the taxpayers or are lazy government workers. We should support and thank them for all they do, not cut their salaries.
3If the Republicans are so good at managing education funding, then why did Education Week give Arizona a F in K-12, a D+ in school finance, and a C- in Chance for Success. Maybe nearly failing and below-average grades are good enough for them, but they aren’t to parents who expect better for their children.
4Arizona Republicans have lost sight of what’s most important and have focused on passing bills that challenge the Presidents birth certificate, allow guns in schools, and declaring pregnancy occurs before conception. It’s time to end these practices and elect leaders who know how to set the right priorities.
