In Arizona, our state is divided into 30 legislative districts. Here in Ahwatukee, we belong to Legislative District 18 (LD18), along with some of Chandler and Tempe. Each district has one senator and two house representatives that represent us in the state Legislature. I think many people have already heard about Janie Hydrick, who is the best candidate for our single senate seat. But there is also a great candidate for the state House: Mitzi Epstein.
She has been on the Kyrene Elementary School Board and has also had much experience in the private sector, including being a small business owner. She understands that having a sound economy and real support for public schools is what is important for our children and their future. I have lived in Ahwatukee for 10 years and I have seen past state representatives take away money/support for public schools and teachers.
My vote will be for Mitzi Epstein to help put public schools back as a priority for Arizona.
