````````There is NO doubt, the Republicans in control of the Legislature, and all of state government in Arizona have funded Corporate Tax Dodges, Tax Cuts and special Corporation legislative favors on the backs of school children and with extreme reductions in funding for Public Education. The children of Arizona are expected to do with less educational opportunities so the elected GOP officals can pay back their wealthy campaign donors. ```````````````````````

Andrei Cherny, Arizona Democratic Party Chairman “Arizona Republicans hold all the power, and they’ve used it for all the wrong things. The result is that jobs are nowhere to be found, schools are forgotten, and our communities are silenced. We won’t stand for it, and we will hold them accountable in 2012 so Arizona can get back on the right track.”

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” —the Declaration of Independence

HAVING JUST CELEBRATED Independence Day, this passage inspired me to run. I am frustrated that our legislature ignores Arizona voters. I will listen, be inclusive and work to build a better Arizona for us all. Above all, I will respect the will of the voters. 

My two campaign priorities for July:

Jo Holt Campaign Corner: A Victory for ALL!

Jo Holt Campaign Corner: A Victory for ALL!

THE SUPREME COURT’S RULING ON THE constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, is a victory for all Arizonans and all Americans. The individual provisions of Obamacare will continue to be implemented for the benefit of everyone. No one will be denied health coverage or charged a high premium due to a pre-existing condition. Young adults will be able to stay on their parents’ health plans until age 26. Millions of uninsured people, for whom all the rest of us pay, will now be covered. Premiums for middle income families will be kept affordable. I support Obamacare as a strong beginning for health care reform. It is now imperative that the Arizona legislature move forward, in the interest of our business environment, with its responsibility to establish the Arizona health care exchange. Engaging in partisan politics rather than consensus-building has become too expensive for Arizona businesses and families.

Nancy Young Wright Leads in Support: a study in contrasts

Nancy Young Wright Leads in Support: a study in contrasts

THE LATEST CAMPAIGN FINANCE REPORTS from candidates running for Pima County Supervisor in District 1 reveal sharp contrasts between former LD 26 legislator and education advocate Nancy Young Wright and the four Republicans.  

Nancy Young Wright leads with the number of individual contributors, number of contributions, and petition signatures. Her average donation amount was $93.33, more than twice that of all the Republicans together. “I’m proud of the broad, grass-roots support I have from citizens of all walks of life in our community,” said Young Wright. “We’ll continue to work hard to get our message of smart economic development, infrastructure improvements, and natural protection out to the voters.”

Jo Holt Campaign Corner: What Does “Pro-Business” Really Mean?

Jo Holt Campaign Corner: What Does Pro-BusinessReally Mean?

WHAT DO MOST small business owners identify as their biggest challenge in today’s post-recession economy? They have too few customers with too little buying power. Our legislature’s response to this situation has been deep cuts in public education and healthcare and increased spending on numerous tax incentives for specific businesses. Both of these tactics are damaging to our state. An effective “pro-business” approach begins with a solid public school system, quality healthcare, renewable energy, and a diversified revenue base that attracts and maintains businesses. Cuts to critical infrastructure, like public education, roads, and children’s healthcare, are tantamount to placing an additional tax burden on the middle class, because each of these cuts comes with costs. And that’s even more money out of the pockets of the middle class and our small businesses.
Support Arizona’s schools and you support local businesses as well.
