Former Republican AZ Governor

Students FIRST: Build more schools; maintain existing ones

Thanks to Students FIRST, seven new schools are built and filled with students and another 125 new schools have been approved. The rest of our K-12 schools are on the way to having their deficiencies addressed. Now it is up to the school districts to make sure that these facilities are properly maintained. We heard that we should concentrate on the education in the classroom, not the classroom itself. We decided to do both, to provide a quality education in a sound classroom.

Supports Prop. 301, raising taxes for use in schools

The political pundits told Superintendent Lisa Keegan and me that Arizonans would never tax themselves, even to improve education. You had the courage to give the people the chance to prove those experts wrong and a majority of Arizona voters had the foresight to approve Proposition 301. Proposition 301 means $459 million will be available for education programs in just the first year. Our schools now have a dedicated revenue stream to improve learning.
