Every night, my phone rings with electoral candidates making promises. My mail box is full of fliers trying to scare me with how wrong their opponent is. What I’m not seeing is the candidates stating how they will vote on issues that actually affect the lives of children and families in our state. Arizona ranks 46th in the nation on overall conditions for children, but unfortunately, this does not seem to be a priority for our elected officials. The best predictor of Arizona’s economic future is how our children are being treated today. It’s time for someone with courage, and a real heart for our children to be elected to shape Arizona’s future. We really need to ask each candidate: “How will you be the voice for children and make sure they have the opportunity to succeed?”
