Election Integrity: The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors oversee every election, no matter of what level, in the county. The 2020 Presidential election in the county has been marred by major controversy ever since that election day. Whether you believe it or not, the Dominion voting machines are not the answer to fair and honest elections. If those machines are still in place for the 2024 election, I promise to the people of Maricopa County to do everything I can to get rid of those machines and get the county's money back. I will work together with the Secretary of State's office and even the Governor's office to make this happen. We need to get back to the basics of voting. Databases belonging to the DOD, DOS, banks, cell phone companies and countless others have been victims of breaches. The Dominion voting machines are no different. Any machine that you can plug into a power source or a Wi-Fi source is open to breaches. We must protect the single most important duty that we have as Americans at all costs, and with me in office, we will do just that. Our elections must be conducted with 100% Voter I.D.s, on one day, using only paper ballots, by precinct only, and only those who can justify a mail in ballot will get one. No more ballot drop boxes or ballot harvesting.
County Budget: Maricopa County Board of Supervisor approve the county budget. I believe that for far too long, county departments have spent a lot of money irresponsibly. Under my leadership, every county department must prove and justify why they need what they are asking for. County departments will be held responsible for price matching and getting multiple price quotes for items and supplies that they need. I believe this will help cut down on overspending and in return help us to keep the county tax rate down to healthy levels. One area that the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors do not have a direct decision making on is the county's public education. However, every year more than 53% of all property taxes goes into the public education department, but that money comes out of the county budget. We can also hold the county board of education and the school districts responsible and accountable for their actions as well. We need to do all we can to help good and honest people want to become great schoolteachers to help our students and children be successful in the classrooms. I can make the promise right now to never support any bills that would defund any law enforcement organization in the county.
Taxes: Another duty of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors is to set the county tax rate. I promise to the citizens of Maricopa County that I will do everything that I can to never raise the tax rate within the county and do all that I can to eliminate the state income tax. Maricopa County is one of the top destinations for Americans to relocate to for retirement and other opportunities and that is due to the current and former county Board of Supervisors doing a good job with keeping the low tax rates, we you can be proud of that. In regards to a death tax, I can promise to never vote to set a death tax on our citizens. All through life we have heard there are only 2 guarantees in life are death and taxes. I truly believe we should not be forced to pass on our personal debt to our loved ones.
Term Limits: It is my strong belief that every elected, political office in the nation, regardless of level, needs to have a set term limit. From small town county sheriff's, small city mayors to the President of the United States, and even the U.S. Supreme Court must have term limits. Too many politicians get in office, stay there for 20-30 years or more, become some of the richest people in the country, but don't really do what is best for the average American. Everyone can have a price to look the other way, views change, etc. I will do everything that I can to bring this up for a vote with my fellow Maricopa County Board of Supervisors. This is something that 70-80% of the U.S. population wants to happen. I would like to see no more than (2) 4-year terms for the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors in the future.
Thomas Jefferson, our nation's 3rd President once said more than 200 years ago that, "If serving in an elected office ever becomes a career, corruption will surely follow." Somehow for some reason, most of today's politicians can't or won't comprehend that thought.
2nd Amendment: My firearms, and I have several, will be the very last things that the government will pull from my hands. They may take my home, my vehicles, what I have in my bank account, etc., but I will die with my guns in my hands, and I will fight to make it the same for all Americans. I will never support any bill that will weaken the 2nd Amendment. Once that right is gone, it will be very easy for them to take the rest of our rights and freedoms. We must also keep firearms and other deadly weapons out of the hands of criminals and felons.
Safe Schools: We must protect our children while they are in their schools. Protection from weapons, drugs, bullies, etc., but also from negative indoctrination, extreme sexual curriculums, physical, mental, emotional abuse from teachers and staff, every aspect of Critical Race Theory, and protect (especially naturally born females) from transgender participation in athletics. The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors approves the county budget every year which includes a large piece for public education funding.
School Choice: One of the most important things a parent can do for their children is to be able to provide them with the best quality of education. If that means that a parent must drive their child to a out of district school for that to happen, they should have that right. I support parents rights to school choice.
Border Security: I am married to a 1st generation Salvadorian American, our 3-year-old son and our baby daughter who will be arriving in a couple months are 2nd generation Salvadorian Americans. With that being said, I am 100% for a closed southern border. We are a nation of opportunity, but we must make it to those who wait in line and do what is set by law to be able to come into our country. America did not become America overnight; it took centuries, and it took many sacrifices. The countries where illegal immigrants came from in the thousands and hundreds of thousands won't become free and prosperous countries over night either. While Maricopa County is not a border county, I will commit any resource possible to assist those border counties of Arizona in the fight to secure our southern border.
