But a few visionaries who happened to call Arizona home knew this state could be so much more. But to make that vision a reality, they needed one thing: Water.

Last May, our LD 18 legislators acted like Republicans. I guess I should say they acted to represent the Republican Party that I grew up with. I grew up with John Rhodes, Paul Fannin, Barry Goldwater and Sandra Day O’Connor, to name a few, leading the Republican Party. Sen. John McComish, Rep. Bob Robson and Rep. Jeff Dial represented us by voting to support our Kyrene School District. These education votes directly and positively affect our property values. Charter school choice aside, strong neighborhood schools directly affect whether or not our personal property is valued or not.

Arizona's Legislature is back in session. Before the first week
had even finished, hundreds of bills had been "dropped" into the
hopper, several which I find telling of the political atmosphere
here in Arizona. Unfortunately, several of these bills reflect how
our current Legislature has lost touch with reason and demonstrate
a sense of political entitlement that has and will continue to harm
our state. Clearly, they have learned absolutely nothing from the
message Arizona voters sent in the 2011 elections.
