Arizona for Everyone

This is not a campaign. This is an uprising.

Don’t let anyone tell you there’s nothing we can do.

Like you, I’m outraged by what our elected leaders are doing to this state – and to this nation. What is even worse  are those voices telling us there is nothing we can do about it. I’m the CEO of a 100-year old organization that is a leader in the fight for economic and social justice – and I’m tired of waiting for someone else to fix our problems. Aren’t you? It’s time for us to rise up, take our state – and our nation – back from the incompetent leaders who are running it and the shady billionaires who bought it, and get busy fixing what’s broken – for the sake of our children, our families and our future.

It’s time to think big and work together, Arizona. We’ve got this.

Our current governor says that what’s wrong with Arizona can’t be fixed. He’s wrong. We have all the resources, brainpower and willpower in this state to fix every problem we face – to make our schools the best in the nation, strengthen locally owned small businesses, slash the number of families and kids living in poverty, rebuild a sense of community, stand up against the bullies who want to build walls and split up our families, give everyone in our state access to quality health care, fix our broken criminal justice and prison system, make sure our elders can live in dignity, make this economy work for everyone, and ensure that our children inherit a sustainable environment.

We have a moral responsibility to leave this planet better than we found it.

I’m not a professional politician. I’m just a citizen who believes it’s wrong that so many of us have been shoved to the sidelines. Our voices haven’t been heard. Our elected leaders have ignored us and the real problems we face. But it doesn’t have to be that way. We do not have to settle for anything less than a state – and a nation – that works for everyone. Everyone. 

Raise your voice, vote your values, stand up for your neighbors. Help make Arizona a state that works for everyone.

Meet Kelly: Democratic Candidate for Governor

I’m not a professional politician. I ran an organization that helps elect women to public office and I’ve worked on campaigns, but I’ve never run for office before. Instead, I’ve spent 25-years leading nonprofit organizations, congregations, and for-profit small businesses. I’ve worked with and beside people, trying to make life better for everyone. I know the challenges we face in this state first-hand. 

A lifetime of service as a CEO, teacher, mother, minister, and entrepreneur has gotten me ready for my next job: Governor of Arizona.
