I have lived in Arizona for 37 years. My wife Dorothy is a native of Tucson. We love the state and want to see it prosper. The performance of the Secretary of State’s office during the last 3 ½ years has been unacceptable. My business background, and especially my experience in the printing industry, is a fit with the job. My companies have printed tons of election material; I have extensive experience with document security, information technology, and the law – all areas that bear directly on the functioning of the Office. I know I can do the job – that’s why I decided to run.

My opponent has no executive experience. She has been a social worker and a politician. This is not a background that will lead to success running an organization of 200 people with a budget of $25 million. Worse, she has said that she will use the office of the Secretary of State to help Democrats get elected to the legislature, which means that she will abuse the office for political purposes.

Elections are the bedrock of our republic. Voters want and deserve well-run elections that are conducted with honesty and integrity – not partisanship. That is what I will provide. My background will allow me to be effective on day one. I will bring order, discipline and accountability to the office and fix the problems that have plagued us for the last four years. It would be my honor to serve the people of Arizona.
