Right to Vote

Many of you know that I have been a huge advocate for our area's right to vote on whether or not we become a city. After drafting legislation last year, with Senator Barbara McGuire as the ONLY elected official in our area willing to sponsor the bill, we were close to changing law in 2015.

I promised everyone that I would "be back" in 2016 and as a woman who is true to her word, I am.

Don't Sit Still

I love our sunrises and sunsets. Always have. Being lucky enough to have grown up in Arizona, I have been spoiled with breathtaking beginnings and endings to every day. I always thought that in my perfect world, I would wake up, make some coffee and sit outside - sitting still - so that I could watch the sky light up in front of me. That is a dream of mine that I have had for as long as I can remember. Stop and smell the roses, they say. Relax. Slow down. Sit still. A goal to one day try to achieve, or so I thought.
