On the Issues
Free and Fair Elections
As a lawyer, Alex has been on the front lines of the fight to ensure our elections are free and fair. He has never backed down even when that meant putting his career, business, and personal safety on the line.
It is time to return to the principles that served our state and nation well for so many years - one person, one vote, one day, on paper for those that are physically able.
Arizona must take the common-sense step of requiring elections officials to keep track of every ballot that is printed and to count those ballots by hand and by precinct, never by machine. The Attorney General’s office should be empowered and required to fully investigate and reach a resolution on all election integrity complaints as they currently do for consumer complaints. Voters must be required to present ID to cast any ballot.
Secure Borders, Safe Communities
Alex will protect Arizona’s southern border and oppose sanctuary cities.
The Biden administration will not protect Arizona’s border. Therefore, Arizona is legally authorized to defend itself by declaring an invasion, standing up a state guard, and sending them to the border. See Attorney General Opinion I22-001 (R21-015). We must also finish the wall and private landowners who wish to help with the project should receive tax credits for their important public service. Local ordinances that get in the way must be nullified. The border isn’t the only front where public safety is at stake. As your state representative, Alex will make sure that first responders like his brother receive our legislature's full support. Arizona has been Alex’s home nearly all his life and he believes that safe communities are vital to the Arizona economy and educational system. Arizona families deserve to live, work, and grow together in communities free of fear. Our police officers, firefighters, EMTs and others are on the front line, keeping our communities safe. We must have their back.
Constitutional Freedoms (2A, Free Speech, Freedom of Conscience)
Alex will protect your constitutional rights - the right to speak and act according to your conscience, and the Second Amendment. Alex is rated AQ by the NRA - the highest rating a non-incumbent can receive
Our right to speak isn’t just being infringed by elected officials on the left. Tech companies use public land and infrastructure to conduct their business, and then abuse the public’s trust by using the resources provided by taxpayers to suppress conservative viewpoints. Just as states like Florida have done, Arizona must allow citizens to challenge such behavior in court and must never provide state subsidies, tax breaks, or contracts to companies that suppress free speech.
Alex will also prioritize freedom of conscience. He will oppose efforts to mandate vaccines, masks, or vaccine passports or to force business owners to violate their conscience.
Everyone deserves to be able to protect themselves, their families and their homes. This is a fundamental human right that cannot be compromised. A free society is a well-educated and well-armed society. As your state representative, Alex will work to keep Arizona a top state in the country for gun owners by opposing all infringements on our constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Alex will oppose red flag laws and advance legislation that prevents state resources from being used for federal gun control efforts. Alex is a member of the Arizona Citizens’ Defense League.
Life is an Arizona value. Without the right to life, all other freedoms are null.
Alex is unequivocally pro-life. He will not only advocate for the preborn and vote against pro-abortion measures, but he will bring his legal skills to craft effective pro-life legislation that will stand up to pro-abortion challenges in court. He will never vote to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) which would create a constitutional right to abortion and void many state and federal laws that restrict access to abortion. Our most vulnerable need a voice and Alex will take a leading role when it comes to protecting them. If not us, who?
A free and open economy is the best economy for Arizona.
Our continued economic growth will require the lowering of taxes, elimination of harmful regulations that prevent business growth, and adoption of responsible budgeting practices that will keep Arizona on the path to long-term economic prosperity.
Alex will move government out of the way of business so our economy can thrive, Arizonans can earn a good living, and Arizona families can enjoy a better quality of life. The most competitive states in the country have already eliminated their state income tax - it's time for Arizona to do the same.
As a business owner, Alex knows that Arizona is another word for “opportunity.” To unleash the ingenuity and determined work ethic of our great Arizona citizens, he will fight to relieve taxpayers from the burden of funding irresponsible government spending. Alex will work every day to make sure that Arizona families have the best opportunities to reach their career goals and dreams without being burdened by an over-regulated economy.
Education is everything when it comes to Arizona’s future prosperity.
Alex will advance the quality of education by continuing Arizona’s leadership in school choice and by allocating education dollars so more money makes its way into the classroom.
Alex was a teacher, his wife is a teacher, and he grew up with a mother who was a teacher.
He experienced the importance of school choice first-hand at a young age. Alex says he was a difficult student early on, but his mother was able to choose a school where he could learn and excel.
Arizona is blessed to be a national leader in school choice. Alex is committed to making sure that each family can send their children to a school that works for them. For some families the school that works for them may not be a school at all but their home or that of a neighbor. Alex will work to end our education system’s discrimination against homeschooling families by ensuring that they have access to the same education dollars as other families to help support them in educating Arizona’s next generation.
As your state representative, Alex will also work to make sure that our local district schools are spending their money in the classroom, where it belongs, and make it easier for our schools to implement individualized learning strategies. He will also stand strong against attempts to indoctrinate students in hateful ideologies like critical race theory.
Alex will use conservative principles to help ensure that Arizona has a stable long-term water supply to power its continued economic growth.
He believes in the free market and capitalism, not corporate socialism. The practice of asking hardworking taxpayers to subsidize wasteful water use by large corporations goes against our free market system. He will work to end it.
We must empower individuals and local communities to take responsibility for themselves. Places like Rio Verde rely on groundwater but have no idea how much water they actually have in the ground. The state can help communities like this take charge of their long-term water planning by carrying out inexpensive studies on groundwater supply.
Finally, conservatives respect the art of the deal. Alex will use his expertise negotiating complex deals for clients to get a better deal for Arizona in the next round of water negotiations with neighboring states like California.
