As a Physician Assistant, I am trained in science.  I am therefore a scientist.  I understand and know science and believe in truth. I also believe we are in a crisis and the time to act is now.  As your legislator I will work to help prevent a catastrophe from occuring which will negativly impact future generations and our state.  

I will sponsor or vote for legislation that will:

  1. Eliminate single use plastic bags.  Many states have already adopted this simple measure and it is time for Arizona to do so.  I personally have been bringing my own reusable shopping bags into stores for years and it is a habit that is easy to develop.  
  2. Add incentives and tax breaks for those who buy electric vehicles.  As of 12/31/19, the tax incentive in Arizona has expired.  
  3. Enter the Paris climate agreement.  Yes, as a state we can do this.  This shows the world and the rest of the US that Arizona will work hard and values the need to work for solutions to our current and future climate crisis.
  4. Increase the use of solar in our state.  As the sunniest state, Arizona has no excuse but to be the solar capitol of the USA.
  5. Protect and clean our air.  Phoenix continues to have an air quality issue as do other regions of our state. 
  6. Protect our beautiful southwest way of life.  We must work to protect our lands and communities from fraking, uranium mining and needless damage to our beautiful desert areas.
  7. Develop our own state endagered species act to protect animals specfic to Arizona and the southwest.
  8. Work with communities and cities on alternative transportation solutions and look to the future where water will be scarce and weather will be hotter.  We must use all our resources and talent in our great state to be on the cutting edge of breakthroughs that will provide a clear, bright future for all in Arizona.
