Campaign themes


Camenisch's website listed the following issues:[2]

  • Support for Education
Excerpt: "Arizona has consistently underfunded public education for the past two decades. Don’t be confused when you hear anti-education legislators say that education spending has increased over this time period. Because the population has increased so significantly, per pupil funding has dropped even as total expenditures have increased."
  • Economic Revitalization
Excerpt: "For many years, Arizona’s economy has been overly reliant on construction and other population growth driven industries. Because our economy is not better diversified, the recession hit Arizona much harder than most other states and our recovery from the recession is lagging behind the rest of the country."
  • Common Sense Solution We Need
Excerpt: "It’s time to replace partisan politics with common sense solutions that benefit all of us in southern Arizona. Instead of being based on ideology, decisions should be data-driven and based on community input, which is why there are multiple places on my website for you to register your opinion."
