    Education is one of the biggest issues facing our state and sadly the Republican-led legislature has balked at every turn to capitalize on the potential we have to make our state a high-ranking education state. As a Republican I view education of every citizen as a corner-stone of securing our democracy, as well as the fundamental building block of our business community. We have allowed our tax contributions to erode over the past 30 years in AZ. It’s time to re-up, or we risk losing both regional financial growth and our democracy.
