Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Fann's campaign website lists the following issues:[1]

  • Arizona's Water Situation
Excerpt: "Even though much of our landscape includes desert, Arizona is also an agricultural state. That industry generates $9.2 billion to the State’s economy, so it is essential that we ensure ample water supplies to our rural and urban areas."
  • Jobs For Arizonans
Excerpt: "I’m proud that I sponsored HB2368 and HB2519. Both bills were supported by the NFIB and the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce and its nearly 3000 members. HB2368 is a workers’ compensation omnibus bill. It creates a more stable average monthly wage index calculation;"
  • Arizona Budget
Excerpt: "We faced a very hard task the last two years, but we can proudly say the State budget and finances are close to being sustainable. This is good news. State revenues are picking up, but there is still much to do. With your support of voting me back to the House, I will continue to be fiscally conservative so the financial future of this fine State’s vitality continues to prosper."
  • Health Care in Arizona
Excerpt: "The health and well being of the citizens of Arizona is vital for a prosperous community. Choosing your own doctor and health care professionals is also important as a free citizen of the United States. When your freedoms are compromised, I feel that I’m the person that will listen and be a strong voice for you."
  • Arizona and Immigration
Excerpt: "The cost of illegal immigration to Arizona is staggering - with the current estimate at more than $3 billion dollars. Those who’ve slipped across U.S. borders to reside in Arizona illegally weigh heavily on our health care, educational and prison systems - in addition to taking jobs now urgently needed by Arizona’s legal residents."
