Chris Leone | Independent | State Senate LD–23

Congratulations to all our elected representatives.

This was my first time running for public office and I would not have traded the experience for anything. It was wonderful despite the loss.

I would love to see more independents run in 2020, which is not too far away. We started something that I hope is just the beginning of a movement to put competition and choice back into Arizona's local elections.

As you may have heard me say, I did not feel I was running against any one candidate as much as I was challenging a two-party system that has a firm grip on our political options.

If we are going to move Arizona forward, we need to get organized. One way to do that is to get involved with the Phoenix Chapter of Unite America.
