Elections are the bedrock of our republic. The Secretary of State’s most important role is Arizona’s Chief Elections Officer. The performance of the Office during the last 3 ½ years has been unacceptable.

There have been repeated, serious errors that constitute a pattern of failure. Laws have been broken and no one has been held accountable. The Office has lost the respect of those who depend upon its performance, including voters and County elections personnel.

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.

The Secretary of State is not only the Chief Elections Officer, but is effectively the Lieutenant Governor. These are important roles which require competence, but Arizona’s Republican Attorney General judged our incumbent incompetent. My background will allow me to be effective on day one. I will bring order, discipline and accountability to voters and I will work hard to end illegal voting.

It would be my honor to serve the people of Arizona.
