WAYS TO HELP

ABOUT CATHERINE

District 27, one of the most diverse communities in Arizona, has been my home my entire life. I believe a legislator must maintain close contact with the community and must be available to the people at any time. From the devotion of time at St. Catherine’s of Sienna Parish to the time spent at American Legion Post 41, where my Korean War Veteran father was a member, to my involvement in sports in the South Mountain Community, this community has always been there to support me in all my endeavors, and I look forward to giving back.

From a kindergarten student to a school administrator and school board member, to serving in both chambers of the State Legislature, I am the strong product of the rich diversity of District 27. This diversity within our community is what helps shape my legislative priorities.

Deep roots and experience matter when representing the community. I’ve served you before, and I look forward to the opportunity to serve you again.

PRIORITIES

EDUCATION

As a former teacher, school administrator and school board member, education always comes first for me. I understand the struggles first-hand teachers and students face everyday in our classrooms. During my time at the legislature, as ranking member in our education committee, I fought against taking resources out of public schools and supported increasing funding to pay our teachers a living wage and bring more dollars into the classroom. Now more than ever, Arizona is at the forefront of defining what our public education will look like for generations to come. Our community needs an experienced public education champion.

JOBS AND BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

District 27 is in a unique geographical location. Our community has direct access to main arteries for transportation. We need to capitalize on these assets and help to remove burdensome regulations on industries and small businesses within our community so that we can capitalize on job growth opportunities. I will work with our Congressional Representatives to support the United State Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCA) to bring more jobs and prosperity to our community. As I’ve done in the past, I plan to continue to work with the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Arizona Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and all local Chambers, to foster business and job growth so that all members of our community are given a fair opportunity to succeed.

SUPPORTING OUR COMMUNITY

In today’s government, it’s more important than ever for the historically unheard to be heard! I will be a strong advocate and fighter for every group in our community. We need a solution for DACA. So many in our community are faced with uncertainty. I will do everything within my power to ensure all DACA recipients are protected now and well into the future. I will work to ensure no community feels tokenized and that all are given a seat at the proverbial table. No person, no voice deserves to go unheard.

VETERANS

Veterans are near to my heart, my father and late husband were both veterans. It’s critical that as veterans are returning to their homes in our community, they are given every opportunity to be successful. They need a proven champion who will fight for access to veteran educational opportunities and healthcare reform. These veterans put everything on the line, the least we as a community can do is support them every way possible.
