My biggest mistake in 2018 was waiting until I knew my name would be on the ballot. As an Independent, I wasn't comfortable asking for donations or volunteers until I had secured the required 1,600 nominating signatures.
I still feel that way which is why I'm asking for your pledge today. When the Arizona Secretary of State makes the online nominating petition available, about a year before the election, I will notify you by email. Instead of taking six months to gather signatures, I'm hoping to meet the signature requirement in a matter of weeks.
Your pledge will help to level the political playing field and put competition back into state elections.
If you're registered to vote and live in Scottsdale or Fountain Hills Arizona, there is a good chance you are in my district and can nominate me when the time comes. If you want to be sure, use the Independent Redistricting Commission locator to see if you're in Legislative District 23. If you're not living in Legislative District 23, your pledge can still help with campaign funding. I will notify you after I'm on the ballot.
Thank you for your support,
