Matt Jette's story is an American story. Built out of perseverance and hard work, Matt stands today as the only candidate who can truly represent all people of Arizona. Matt Jette has earned multiple degrees, including a PhD, while battling learning disabilities. He helped start a non-profit organization and biked across America to provide hope to children. Matt has survived major illnesses, was selected as a community hero of Montana, and has overcome poverty.

Arizona is more than ever in need of true leadership. With an education system on the rocks as a result of poor decisions and poor leadership, an immigration policy that polarizes more than it solves, a health care system that is in critical condition, and an economy in despair, opportunity is needed now more than ever. Matt Jette has a plan and the commitment to work across differing opinions and across party lines to strengthen education and rebuild infrastructure to bring in businesses and jobs for the people of Arizona. Matt Jette will create a new health care system that places medicine back in the hands of physicians. He will also reform Arizona's immigration policy with the Ellis Island Plan that is built out of reason and sound principles.

First, we need to invite, encourage, and welcome core industries to Arizona that will drive Arizona's economy. With that, we can build business communities around these core industries which will expand job growth, the economy, and secure our economic future. Second, we need a strong infrastructure and education system that will attract high-tech industries. To do that, we need to rebuild education by restructuring our system which will allow us to focus on our children. Third, our health care system is quickly placing Arizona on its own death bed. We need to place medicine back into the hands of our physicians, reduce costs, and increase patient responsibilities. Lastly, we need responsible immigration reform. My plan is called the Ellis Island Plan that reduces illegal immigration, increase revenue, reduce crime substantially, secure our border, and expand businesses.

"It is certainly understandable that we would lose belief in our government officials since they have long ago abandoned a belief in us."
