Kirsten is a mom, an environmental attorney, and a former State Legislator who has fought for years to restore funding to public schools, protect Arizona's natural resources, and make our communities safer. She’s ready to take that fight to Washington to find common-sense solutions to the challenges we’re facing here in Arizona's Sixth Congressional District.
WHY I'M RUNNING
I’m running to bring my experience as a mom, an educator, and a legislator to Congress to fight for Arizona values.
Our economy is growing and adding jobs, but too many families are still living paycheck-to-paycheck. In Congress, I'll stand up for solutions that create breathing room for middle and working-class families. That means focusing on jobs that pay well and don't require a college education to make a middle-class living. My opponent votes to protect the oil industry's mega-profits when Congress should be cracking down on price-gouging at the gas pump. Arizona suffers from drought and extreme heat. I will vote to protect our precious water and speed up our transition to lower-cost clean energy. I will also stop Congress's attacks on our reproductive rights and work to re-establish Roe V. Wade as the law of the land.
