Waters' answers to the Arizona State Legislative Election 2008 Political Courage Test are available. The test informs voters how a candidate would vote on the issues if elected. When asked her legislative priorities she replied:
"The tax system in Arizona is unfair and unbalanced. We need to take a comprehensive look at the tax system in Arizona. This is imperative to ensure stable revenue and guarantee the obligations to the people of the state are met.Over the years, the formula use to fund schools has become increasingly difficult to understand, making transparency in school funding practically impossible and limiting school districts abilities to meet the needs and expectations of their communities. In addition, public district and public charter schools are funded differently, causing even more confusion among parents and taxpayers."
