I come from generations of small-business owners. I’m proud of Arizona’s growing businesses, but I’m against corporate welfare. Arizona Republicans think the state succeeds economically when they give corporations huge tax breaks. This failed economic policy goes by many names but has had one result: growing debt and a shrinking budget.
Arizona Republicans just enacted a state bill a few months ago giving corporations even more tax breaks, including a special tax break for corporate jet buyers. I know that corporate handouts lead to poorly maintained infrastructure and underfunded public education down the road.
Robust infrastructure and a highly educated and trained local workforce motivate businesses to move to Arizona. When I’m elected, I'll help make sure corporations are equitable partners in our state economy.
