Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Camacho's campaign website listed the following issues:[3]

  • Immigration: "It is painfully obvious immigration reform is not likely to come anytime soon. Washington lacks the political will to make change happen. Change can’t wait! In this case I favor state action over federal inaction. I’m proud to introduce my plan called the Arizona Residency for Immigrants Act, also known as ARIA. Once enacted, ARIA will allow qualified undocumented immigrants to become Arizona residents."
  • Education: "The Common Core Standards is approaching quickly. It is vital that schools be up to speed regarding staff preparation and technology that produce best teaching practices and lesson development that incorporate student engagement, alignment to curriculum, and rigor in the classroom. Critical thinking and solving skills are essential skills our students should master."
  • Economic Development: "The canals of the Valley have been in existence since the days of the Hohokam over 500 years ago. Over the course of time, the canals of the Valley have breathed life into the Valley. And as they continue to flow, it is vital we understand their importance to our continued economic development especially as it relates to communities that are only beginning to see their promise by developing areas around the canals of the Valley."
