About Me

I am a progressive Democrat who was raised in LD 15 and who has dedicated my career to fighting public corruption, advocating for education, and defending reproductive justice in Arizona. Will you help me flip our district blue?

The next election is critical: you will be hearing about Arizona's underfunded education system, our financially inaccessible health care, and our perpetually troubled foster care program. These are issues that I care about and will fight hard to fix. But make no mistake about it: these are symptoms of a bigger problem.

We will never have the education and health care our citizens deserve until we address the conflicts of interest, dark money, and corruption at the capitol.

If elected, I would introduce legislation that requires our elected officials and agency heads to disclose and divest from financial conflicts. I will reimagine honest services laws and eliminate the revolving door of politicians-turned-lobbyists that is eroding our democracy. Together we can restore honest government that works for the people.

I've built a career fighting against corruption and for education.

Now, I'm running for office because our kids deserve better.

End Public Corruption

Arizona is ranked #1 in Public Corruption. We need to strengthen ethics laws and preserve the referendum process if we want an accountable government.

A big thank you to the Saturday morning crew—we’ve got an ambitious goal of doors and thanks to you, we’re going to crush it. https://t.co/dqeQLfIFEo JulieGunnigle photo

Anita Malik has my vote, and it’s not because she has a (D) after her name. I want someone representing me who is able to bring people together, find common ground, and meet with her constituents. I want someone who understands technology and isn’t under ethics investigation. https://t.co/hJhs4RWpKY

Education funding should not be a partisan issue. For years, education was adequately funded--so how did Arizona become 49th in the nation in funding?

This November, let's rethink our priorities, and put our children ahead of lobbyists. #RedForEd #Protectourtaxdollars https://t.co/HpzcZTJzcu

This one is for my mother: a school teacher of 26 years who just retired this August. I will never stop advocating for #teachers; yours is the one profession that creates all others. Thank you, AEA! #RedForEd #RememberInNovember https://t.co/xOwf7PWeef JulieGunnigle photo
