Candidate for Arizona House of Representatives
Legislative District 11
Vote ONLY for Hammond November 8 2016
I live with my husband, David, and daughter Summer, in Marana, AZ with our dogs Winston and Hazel.
Shouldn’t your representation in Phoenix work for you?
My opponents say that the state government’s role is to keep the citizens in line. I disagree with this notion. I think that the our State Legislature should work for us. When we pass voter-enacted laws it is the job of the State Legislature to implement them properly. Unfortunately, our Arizona lawmakers have a bad habit of fighting against voter-enacted laws. Despite their claims that they are fiscal conservatives, they use Arizona taxpayer money to file lawsuits against the voters to justify willfully breaking the law. It’s so much easier to file lawsuits when you are using other people’s money to pay for it. Ultimately, Arizona taxpayers have to pay double because we cover the cost to both fight and defend the laws created by the voters. This is a massive violation of the will of voters but also a huge waste of taxpayer money that should be used to make our schools safe, pay our public teachers competitive salaries, and develop our roads and utilities to support Arizona business.
I am a fierce defender of civil liberties for Arizonans, a strong supporter of public education, family values, small business growth, and responsible environmental management that supports both tourism and industry.
Arizona is in desperate need of bipartisan discussion. Let me reach across the aisle for you to find practical solutions.
