For too long, Arizona’s current leaders at the Capitol have been looking out for the wealthy and special interests at the expense of Arizona’s working families. This has left us with under-funded public schools, economic insecurity for families working to be part of the middle class, a lack of trust in politicians, communities struggling and concerns over the quality of air and waterways.
Today is a new day and community leaders from around our state have come together to create a proactive vision and blueprint for our future that puts everyday working Arizonans as the top priority.
Create an Open and Accountable Government
Arizona’s current leaders at the Capitol have allowed big corporations and wealthy special interests to rig the system and have too much influence and power.
We will create a government that works for the people, not just the powerful by passing strong policies that ensure lawmakers will not reap a personal profit from the votes they take. We will ensure that voting is as accessible, modern and secure for all Arizonans regardless of where you live, whether you serve in the military, where you work, or your ethnic background.
Invest in Strong Public Schools
For too long, Arizona’s schools have been underfunded and teachers have been underpaid.
Arizona’s success as a state is entirely contingent on our investment in strong neighborhood public schools. This is the key to successful economy, the key to strengthening families, and is of paramount importance to us.
Prioritize an Economy that Works for All of Us
Arizona policymakers continue to give tax breaks to the wealthy and special interests at the expense of working families.
We will close tax loopholes, stop rewarding corporations who ship jobs overseas and invest that money in programs and businesses that grow the future economy of Arizona.
Arizona’s current leaders have put politics and special interests over the health of our families and our state.
Arizona’s future is tied to the health of our citizens and beauty of our public lands. We will ensure that every family in Arizona has access to affordable healthcare that is there when they need it, clean drinking water, clean air and access to parks and other public lands.
Create Stronger Communities
The current leadership has used divisive language and policies that have harmed our citizens and reputation at home and abroad.
We will bring equity to our criminal justice system and our policies toward immigrant communities which leads to stronger and safer communities and a stronger and safer Arizona.
