Lip service serves no one

Being a public servant means being active engagement in the community. What matters to constituents is the connection between them and the people they elect to serve not the few, but the many. The Labor Force represents the many since employees vastly outnumber employers.

Residents in the City of Phoenix have two ballot initiatives that have a significant impact on labor and public transportation. What is important to understand is business owners are supporting the passage of these measures. Propositions 105 and 106 will cease Light Rail Transportation. Not only does this limit access for citizens of public transportation, this mode of travel runs on electricity. It is planet friendly.

It is an honor to band with my brothers and sisters involved in Organized Labor to protect the workforce. Reaching out to voters via phone banking is a great tool for reaching voters to inform them of the issues that affect them, whether they realize that or not.

One thing is certain, my incumbent Republican opponent supports these ballot measures. I promise to always support the citizens of Arizona’s 8th Congressional District and not Big Corporations.

Together we stand; Divided we beg
