Campaign themes


Borders' campaign website highlighted the following issues:[1]


  • Excerpt: "I pledge to work with new businesses and existing businesses to foster an environment where we grow jobs and wages."


  • Excerpt: "As a State Representative I will work to restore as much funding as possible for our schools and make sure all of our teachers have the tools they need to teach the next generation. It is my goal for AZ to be in the Top Ten for education by 2020."

Welfare and AHCCCS

  • Excerpt: "Our residents deserve better than a black or white system that punishes our most vulnerable citizens just as they are starting to get back on their feet. I would like to create and implement a tiered system that does not strip a family of their lifeline for making a few cents more than the cut-off. We need to reward this hard work and not stifle it."

Neighborhood Pride

  • Excerpt: "The state of Arizona has ignored many neighborhoods in our district. Maryvale alone has 75,000 children living in it and it has been ravaged by hard times. We need to work together to clean up the blight and be proud of our neighborhoods. When we work together on these community projects we boost moral and community pride. It is important that our State government puts more money and resources into our communities and our childrens future"
