Letter: Kate Brophy McGee’s actions speak loudest

Legislative District 28 needs a state senator who walks the walk. If you believe child safety, education and health care are important issues, then Kate Brophy McGee is the only choice for state Senate.

Kate led the floor fight to restore KidsCare to ensure low-income children had access to quality, affordable insurance. Her opponent talked about the need to restore the program, but it was Kate who found a way to do it. On education, she was a strong supporter of Proposition 123 to invest $3.5 …

Dirty Campaigning III

Dirty Campaigning III

“And you know I will continue to run a positive campaign.”

– Eric D. Meyer, Blog Post 9/30/16

Stealing campaign signs, illegitimate forums, and now negative, baseless campaign mailers flooding the district. A more accurate quote might be: “You can be positive I will continue to run a campaign of distraction and distortion because I have a record of zero accomplishments for LD28.”.

Arizona’s Special Election Is Tomorrow

Arizona’s Special Election Is Tomorrow

Arizona’s Special Election is tomorrow, May 17th. Two initiatives, Prop 123 and Prop 124, are on the ballot. I support both of them and hope you will too! Some additional information regarding Prop 123:

Prop 123 is an education funding measure. It provides $3.5 billion to our public K-12 school system over the next 10 years without raising taxes. If Prop 123 passes, school districts can use the increased funds to keep great teachers in our classrooms. Teachers are leaving for other states and professions because …
