Suzanne Sharer For Arizona State Senator
I love Arizona and our amazing country. It’s why I decided to run for the Arizona State Senate and to protect you and our families by keeping Arizona strong, safe and united.
I want to be your voice that helps shape Arizona’s future. We are welcoming over 200 new residents to Arizona daily and for the 3rd consecutive year, Maricopa County has been the fastest-growing county in the Nation. As a licensed real estate professional in Arizona for the last 24 years I can tell you that with this kind of incredible growth, we not only need leaders who understand the logistics of such an influx but we also need strong leaders such as myself who will uphold and be true to Arizona’s core values of following the Constitutions of our state and country, respect the rights of the individual, enforce our rule of law by supporting our police, border agents and first responders and share a passion to build opportunities that will provide all Arizonan’s the opportunity to thrive.
As your Senator I will work to eliminate excessive government interference in our lives and fight for common sense, transparency and legislative restraint to prevail. 1,098 unnecessary regulations have been eliminated under our Republican leadership over the last few years and I believe we can find more. Over-regulation is the death knell of prosperity, freedom, and opportunity. To see just how bad over-regulation can be all we need do is to look at our neighbors to the west in California. These leftist politicians have over-regulated themselves into countless problems including the current housing disaster leaving them with more than half the nation’s homeless population on their streets. While we welcome and embrace Californians to our state, we should not embrace their failed policies that have driven them out.
Arizona is now ranked #2 Nationally in job growth as a state, with 300,000 new jobs since 2015. Long gone are the days of relying on just the 5 C’s of Arizona (Copper, Climate, Cattle, Citrus, and Cotton) that once fueled Arizona’s economy. Today with our business-friendly environment we are attracting the nation’s top employers and educators to our State that can best prepare and provide our citizens with jobs in industries such as technology and innovation, aerospace, defense, bioscience, health care, film and digital media just to name a few that will carry us into the future.
I believe it is now more important than ever to promote and support business and education-friendly policies that will continue to entice these top employers and educators to our doorstep which allows us more opportunities for all Arizonans to flourish.
It was recently reported that Arizona schools are some of the fasted improving around. While this is good news, I feel the improvement needs to happen much faster. I was raised in public schools and three of my children went through Kyrene Schools so I am no stranger to the public school system. I am a firm believer in supporting them. I also believe our first responsibility is to ensure we always do what is in the best interest of our students followed by making sure we take care of our teachers. We want to attract and keep the brightest and most talented teachers by making sure they get the pay and benefits they deserve. This is why I believe in school choice. When there is a choice there is competition and where is competition you get excellence. Our children deserve excellence in education and the same opportunities for success should be available to all regardless of their parent’s financial status.
Being born and raised in Arizona I could not think of a better place to have called home to raise my three children and with the recent addition of my first grandchild, we are now a 3rd generation Arizona family. I cannot think of a higher honor than to represent you and your family, my extended Arizona family. I humbly ask for your support so I can help us all to flourish by making Arizona Safer, stronger and more united.
