YouTube Cleanup

In an effort to help new visitors to my YouTube channel focus on what’s important, we’re removing old videos from before the campaign from my channel. But we’re not deleting the videos. If you want to watch the videos I made before I was a candidate, here they are:

It’s About Leadership

I am proud to be the only candidate who is ready to tackle Arizona’s biggest challenge: partisanship. Progress on education reform, immigration reform, health care reform, tax reform, and other important issues cannot be achieved unless we first reduce partisanship in our politics.Today, many people seem to want our leaders to fail; not because they […]

Make Arizona Great Again

[A couple months ago I was asked to give a speech on the topic of Making Arizona Great Again.  Here’s what I wrote.] What do we need to do to make Arizona great again? This is an interesting question, particularly given the campaign that most recently asked us to make something great again.  It has […]

DACA

I want to express my unqualified love and support for those in our community who were protected by the DACA policy.  The continued presence of these friends and neighbors was neither a drain on our resources nor a trial to be borne.  Rather, associating with these smart, hardworking individuals has truly been a blessing, to me individually and […]

What Have I Been Reading?

Since starting my campaign I’ve read several dozen books, and just made an update to the book list on my bio page. There are certainly some big themes you’ll see.  Some of the things that I’ve spent a lot of time reading about are: Empathy Political Strategy Public Speaking Media and Public Perception There’s also […]

Could You or Someone You Know Be First Lady of Arizona?

As a single man who is evidently predisposed to that relationship status (you can laugh, it’s ok), should I become Governor, I will lack for a First Lady in the traditional sense.  The question then arises, should Arizona go without a First Lady for the duration of my tenure in office, or should another first […]

Ex-Sheriff Joe Arpaio Pardon: Official Statement

Because of the ex-Sheriff Joe Arpaio pardon, Maricopa county’s voters and more especially our minority communities are feeling unheard, unloved, and unsafe.  Unfortunately, by endorsing his illegal, racially targeted policies at a national level, minority communities across America are being forced to feel those same emotions. To everyone who ever personally experienced racial profiling by […]

Help Me Get Clean (Elections)

When I changed parties, I also changed fundraising strategies.  The major parties have access to a fundraising machine that independents do not currently enjoy (though I think we surpass them in future elections cycles). Fortunately, Arizona has a program for candidates that are not connected to big donors.  It’s called Clean Elections. Fundamentally, the Clean […]

Fall Interns

If you or someone you know is looking to get invaluable campaign experience and college credit at the same time, we want you! As an intern on the campaign, you will get will get high-level experience on a statewide candidate campaign.  But this is not a good fit for someone who just wants experience.  First and foremost, […]

If You Can’t Join Them, Beat Them!

I had intended not to go into detail about the specific ways in which high-level leaders of the Arizona Democratic Party had slighted me and offered advantages to the other candidates in the gubernatorial primary.  However, a spokesperson for the party released a false statement to explain my leaving, and I can’t let it go […]
