Lynsey Robinson for House LD 12
THE PRAGMATIC ADVOCATE LEADER WE NEED
As a former DREAMer, teacher and attorney who worked for a non-profit firm I am committed to serving everyone in my community and not just those with the means to influence policy. I am looking to earn your vote on November 6, 2018. We need leaders who put people ahead of politics and who understand that education is the great equalizer. As a product of public education, I understand wholeheartedly the importance of properly funding our public schools. Education will be my first priority. We have a duty to end gun violence in our nation. I believe it begins with pro-active steps such as drastically increasing the counselor to student ratio in our schools.
I support in state tuition for DACA recipients and properly funding higher state education because a well educated population will attract businesses. We can grow the economy ethically by having corporations pay their fair share of taxes while supporting local and small businesses that are vital to our communities.
As stewards of the earth we must pass legislation that holds the planet with the highest regards and shared respect for the other creatures we share it with. Responsible legislation requires that we consider the harm that may come to our fellow Americans/neighbors health and our land, above financial gain.
We can no longer sit back and watch women get marginalized and treated as second class citizens in a first world nation. I will support ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment. I will demand equal pay for equal work, advocate for living wages and support legislation that strengthens the middle-class.
In a representative democracy we must elect leaders who reflect our shared values and the population which they will serve. We need women in office so that issues which are unique to us are regarded with the highest esteem in the legislature. No longer should it be acceptable for lawmakers to kill bills that protect our biology, dignity and sanctity as women.
Vote for me on November 6, 2018 and together we can BRIDGE THE GAPS!
CLASS SIZE: What are the dangers of crowded classrooms on our learning environment? Our story Monday on @FOX10Phoenix untangles a complex issue in the wake of #RedForEd, but here's how @LRobinson4House articulated it.
