Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Longoria's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[1]

Jobs

  • Excerpt: "Encouraging our legislature to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 by 2016 is a priority. I will be the bell that keeps on ringing on this issue. Without a decent entry-level wage, too many workers live at or near the poverty level. Too many households become entrenched in ment [sic] of too little resources and too much disregard by the political and bureaucratic systems we currently have in place. Government should be the champion of a healthy economy that provides a leg up – not a hand-out that demeans, but a legitimate wage that redeems."

Opportunity

  • Excerpt: "This includes not only individuals but local governments as well. It’s important to me to work closely with the counties and cities of our district, ensuring their welfare is being closely monitored. Without an advocate at the state level, many opportunities for economic growth may not ever reach our two most western counties, Mohave and La Paz. Without a proactive legislator, one who can relate to the issues of our diverse population, our interests can be overlooked completely."

Education

  • Excerpt: "I’m ashamed that our state ranks so low in funding per pupil – 47th in the nation. I think you are too. I believe in funding preschool education and finding more equitable ways to guarantee a higher education. Whether it’s an academic institution or trade and technical school, students need to know they can go, and attend affordably."
