RYAN IS READY TO FIGHT FOR YOU
As a lifetime member of the LGBTQ+ community, there is still a lot of work to do. There is no question that each and every person should be treated with dignity and respect. I do identify as a gay male and know what it is like to feel marginalized. We must put a stop to racial, gender, sexual orientation, and all other forms of discrimination. Treatment of Transgender members of our society is unfathomable. I know many fantastic, hard-working, and dedicated transgender members in our community and do not look at them any differently than anyone else I know. They are human beings, like you, like me. We all have our differences, but still share the common purpose of being human first. Protecting transgender rights is TOP-PRIORITY. Ryan has a serious policy plan to address inequality in Arizona.

Climate change is real. We must address it, but first have elected officials that understand the reality. Renewable energy is good for the environment and better for economic growth. Solar & wind generated power can create good paying jobs right here in Arizona. Ryan has a policy plan to boost our presence as a leading solar energy producer. Arizona is one of over 20 States that has not joined the United States Climate Alliance. As your State Senator, Ryan will advocate for Arizona to join this alliance and make sure we do what is best for us on a State level to address this global emergency, create jobs and help protect our environment for future generations. Ryan signed the #NoFossilFuelPledge "Taking the pledge means that a politician and their campaign will adopt a policy to not knowingly accept any contributions over $200 from the PACs, lobbyists, or SEC-named executives of fossil fuel companies — companies whose primary business is the extraction, processing, distribution, or sale of oil, gas, or coal." Numerous candidates are also taking money from APS, the fossil fuel dependent utility. Click Here to see who takes money from APS.
A woman's right to choose should not be up for debate. Women have the right to make choices about their own health care just as men do. This is why I have signed the Pro-Choice Pledge and feel very strongly about the importance of not interfering with anyone's ability to make their own independent choices.

RESPONSIBLE GUN OWNERSHIP
Too many innocent people have died and will continue to without comprehensive changes to gun policy. Background checks have bi-partisan support. Arizona elected officials continue to ignore this. Ryan has a three-point policy plan to address the epidemic of gun violence. Click Here to read more.
MONEY IN POLITICS
We all agree there is too much money in politics. Between 2013-2019, record amounts of money were spent on elections in Arizona. This is why Ryan is running as a Clean Elections candidate to show the people of Legislative District 24 that money cannot buy democracy or him. The Arizona Secretary of State shows how much money each candidate received from special interests and PACs. See for yourself who takes money from big corporations.
