Help one lucky teacher win $2018 for school supplies, and help all Arizona teachers reach their #RedForEd goals!
My campaign will be giving one lucky teacher $2018 for classroom supplies for the 2018 school year! When you sign my petition, I’ll enter you into the raffle for the opportunity to pick your favorite teacher to win the prize.
Arizona teachers need a strong Governor who believes in the value that teachers bring our community. By taking just 60 seconds to help me get on the ballot, you ensure that educators and parents will have the opportunity to vote for the strongest candidate to represent their values and make sure that #RedForEd momentum carries into 2019 and beyond.
How to Enter
Entering the #RedForEd Raffle is as easy as 1, 2, 3.
- You must be registered to vote in Arizona.
- Take 60 seconds to sign my online petition.
- IMPORTANT: Make sure to check the option to share your email address with me. This is how we will notify you if you win.
Why am I the Governor Arizona teachers need?
Thousands of Arizonans have told me that they’re embarrassed that our state is dead last in teacher pay, and near the bottom in per-student funding.
As a former junior high school teacher and college professor, these are issues that I’ve experienced firsthand and I know how to solve. That’s why I was the first candidate to officially declare my candidacy for Governor, and the first candidate to officially release a comprehensive education plan.
My education plan:
- Takes us from 48th in per-student funding to 25th, without any new taxes. We just have to cut tax loopholes.
- Gives school districts the resources they need to pay teachers and support staff better, maintain buildings in good repair, and invest in great technology, curriculum, and teaching materials.
- Stops vouchers and tax credits that take money out of the public schools that need the most help.
Unfortunately, because I’m an independent, the Republicans and Democrats in the Arizona legislature have done everything they can to keep me off the ballot. Republicans and Democrats only need about 5000 signatures to get on the ballot, but they make independents get 35,000. It’s crazy! But we’re already halfway there, and with your help, we’ll get all the way there!
