Shelley Kais is a 2014 Republican candidate seeking election to the U.S. House to represent the 2nd Congressional District of Arizona.[1]

Campaign themes


Kais' campaign website lists the following issues:[3]

  • Economy / Jobs: "I am a Certified Government Financial Manager (CGFM) and an expert in budgeting and federal financial management and analysis. I know the federal appropriations process and how to follow the money. I will go to Washington on a mission to reduce the overspending, duplicity and the over borrowing that is costing us billions of dollars each year."
  • Immigration Reform: "Legislative efforts to reform our immigration laws have been attempted on several occasions in the recent past. They typically stall because of the stark differences between the House and Senate versions – especially when it comes to criminal penalties for those in the country illegally. The House legislation makes unauthorized presence a felony, which I support."
  • Securing Our Border: "The illegal trafficking of drugs, people and guns across the Southern Arizona border is being neglected in the national debate over immigration and border security. If I am elected, that will not continue."
  • Healthcare: "Repealing the 2010 Health Care Act is highly unlikely in this or the next congressional session. We need to make our healthcare coverage personal, portable and with a paid premium."
  • Saving Our Military Assets: "While we should fight to save the A-10, at least through the end of its life cycle, the long-range objective is to sustain Davis-Monthan (D-M), thereby securing and enhancing the economic vitality of Southern Arizona. I believe one future role for D-M could involve hosting squadrons of the new KC-46, an aerial refueling and transport plane being added to the Air Force. D-M has the long runway needed to support it."
