More about Val and why she is running
A Phoenix area resident for over fifty years, Val and her husband Mike have four adult children also living in the valley. Following a rewarding 37 year career with American Express, Val retired and continues working for the betterment of our community while employed by the Deer Valley Unified School District.
Val is deeply concerned about the state of the economy in Arizona. She sees her children, their peers, and many Arizonans struggling to find well-paying careers that will afford them the opportunity to own homes and start families, often while facing lengthy student loan debt.
Val is running for an Arizona State House seat in Legislative District 22 because she believes in our great state and citizens who are being denied wide opportunity for success because of the narrow vision of current state leadership. As one of the largest metropolitan areas in the nation we cannot rely of low wage service sector jobs for economic growth. We need broader vision to attract and retain high paying corporate employers who value long-term commitment to Arizona citizens.
