Campaign themes


Pennypacker's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[2]

Children and Families

  • Excerpt: "Arizona is ranked near the bottom in education and recently ranked one of the 'worst states to be a kid.' The only way to change these dismal statistics is through education and extending a helping hand to families in need."

Tax Reform & Economy

  • Excerpt: "We must also creating an environment that supports job growth for both small and large business in order to grow our economy. Reforming tax laws, streamlining regulation, investing in our infrastructure, and most important of all - investing in a strong educational system - this will all make Arizona more competitive in the global marketplace in which we now live."


  • Excerpt: "Without a doubt, choice in education is a good thing. Open enrollment, home schooling, district charters and publically funded charters all give parents much needed choice,­ but they all must compete on a level playing field. Transparency is key."

Restore Sanity

  • Excerpt: "Restoring sanity means listening to the voice of the people and not special interests. It means doing what is best for and making legislative decisions based upon the needs of Arizona families – not a specific corporation’s checkbook."
  • Excerpt: "Restoring sanity means that Arizona is on the national news for being a leader in job growth, an uptick in economic development and growth that others want to emulate and a national leader in education."
  • Excerpt: "Restoring sanity means we work across the aisle, disregard partisan politics, and do what is right for Arizona, for Arizona communities and families, and for our children."
