On Education: Parents have new options, we should empower them

Children still need to learn, even in a pandemic. By necessity during this emergency, many parents have been more engaged than ever in the daily education of their children. Quite a few have found temporary educational options they want to make permanent. It's their right. Public policy should keep pace and empower them to make that choice.

On Health Care: Once we're all vaccinated we can get on with life

If last year was the year of the virus, this year will be the year of the vaccine. And while local public health officials are working hard, we need to work faster. So now, even more resources will be brought to the fore. At my direction, the state has launched a 24/7 vaccination site at a large and notable location: State Farm Stadium, home of the Arizona Cardinals. Everyone needs this vaccine. And the sooner we all receive it, the more quickly we can get on with life as it should be.

On Principles & Values: Condemns violence & destructive rioting at US Capitol

I had the pleasure of meeting with all four legislative leaders for a serious and cordial exchange. Our meeting was in stark contrast to the violent and destructive rioting at our nation's Capitol. It was a sickening day in Washington D.C., that no American will ever forget. In the United States of America, violence and vandalism have no place in the people's House. Perpetrators should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Let us condemn it and resolve that it never happens again.

On Tax Reform: Haven't raised taxes, on tax reform let's think big

Every year I've been governor, we've improved income taxes in the taxpayer's favor. We've simplified the code, lowered all rates, protected them against inflation, and eliminated an entire tax bracket. We've proven that our government can fulfill every obligation, and answer the unexpected needs of a growing state, without raising taxes. So I propose we work together to reform and lower taxes and preserve Arizona's good name as a responsible, competitive state. On tax reform, let's think big.
