Honored residents of Arizona’s Second District, and American citizens, Washington D.C. no longer works for you. Outside of a select few individuals we have witnessed the political machine place partisan politics and political circus ahead of their oaths of office. For all the American lives lost, taxpayer dollars wasted, how much longer are we to be expected to be deceived? In the 1990’s we witnessed a Republican Congress introduce “the Contract with America” a firm agreement that brought about one of the most prosperous periods in our country’s history. We watched as a Democrat President and Republican Congress ushered in a time of relative trust and prosperity.

I’m pleased to announce a contract with AZ02 that I will abide by, to return to an example of accountability in public servitude. In recognition of Public Service and the important task at hand, the first months of my term in office will be spent immediately getting to work for you. This task starts with interviewing and assembling a great staff consisting of brilliant talent to execute business from day one. The newly hired district two staff will be vetted and thoroughly assessed, any individual expecting to join this team will submit a resume of qualifications along with references. The next step will be to attend all required training for incoming congressmen. Followed by a meeting of all elected officials within District Two, to include Cochise and Pima County Sheriffs, Mayors, City Councils, and Legislative District Representatives and Senators. Thank you for your attention and patriotism, I look forward to a bright future for Southern Arizona.
