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. Check out my policy papers here for more information.

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.

I will be there @OutlawDirty, because this is the most significant vote we will have this election cycle. The people deserve to know who is funding our elections! #ProtectOurDemocracy https://t.co/iWB2kN0dNn

This is incredibly important. Without oversight, the explanation of the ballot initiatives might say something like “I don’t see any reason why this would Outlaw Dirty Money” when it means the opposite. https://t.co/5Er69h3UbR

Equality, justice, and fair treatment of all people is one of my most dearly held values. For this reason, I am beyond excited to announce that my campaign was endorsed by the Stonewall Democrats of Arizona. https://t.co/1GEmLX96In JulieGunnigle photo

There are 4.56 billion reasons I am voting "no" on Prop 305 (that's how many dollars have been cut from k-12 education since 2009). Join me? https://t.co/RY93EEXNZY JulieGunnigle photo

This is just step one. Let's call out corruption in the Congress, the State House, and the White House. Step two is voting in people who will #DefendDemocracy and #ConfrontCorruption https://t.co/yzQ67ZgvE3
