ARIZONA LEGISLATIVE UPDATE
LD1 Representatives Quang Nguyen and Judy Burgess
This month our LD1 representatives will give us an update on the 2021 legislative session. This was an action packed grinder of a session and our representatives will fill us in on the details of what was accomplished and what important bills are coming up.
Representative Judy Burges
Representative Judy Burges is an award winning unapologetic conservative. She was first elected in 2005 while residing in Yavapai County then redistricted to Yavapai-Maricopa Legislative District #4. Robert and Judy raised their 3 children in Yavapai County, their children still live in Yavapai County, and are all productive members of the community.
The Burges’ were members of many of the local organizations including the Yavapai Republican Men’s Club where Robert once served as President. Before being elected to the House of Representatives, Judy also served as the Yavapai Republican Party’s First Vice Chairman. Their roots are deep in this community.
As a legislator, she feels that it is her job to stand in the gap between “We the People” and an ever-expanding government that seeks to constantly raise your taxes and impose increasing bureaucratic burdens on individuals and businesses. A great description of the Biden administration is -more regulation, higher taxes, and impossible mandates. With 31 Republican members in the House and 16 Republican members in the Senate, we need more real conservatives in the legislature.

FEATURED CANDIDATE: KARA WOODS
Candidate for Arizona State Superintendent of Public Education
Wife/military spouse, mother, grandmother, teacher, PUSD school board member, and small business owner. I believe America is the land of opportunity and a great place to live and raise a family. Life-long Republican, Precinct Committeeman, and YavGOP Treasurer. Degrees in Mathematics and Physics from Ripon College, Ripon, Wisconsin.
I believe we in Arizona can do better for our children. Our children deserve the right to be well educated. Arizona K-12 education is ranked 48th in educating our youth in the United States and 47th in the amount spent on each student. Although I do not believe there is a 100% correlation between money spent and a good education, I would like to increase spending per student in Arizona to help make our students more competitive in the world economy. Fiscal transparency is necessary to clearly show constituents how our tax monies are being spent and push more money down to the district level where the education of our students happens without raising school taxes. Motivate parents and community members to get involved in their local schools by volunteering in classrooms, monitoring school boards, and taking back control of what is taught in their schools.
