Phoenix, AZ- September 26, 2014-  Declaring that “Legislative District 28 deserves effective representation in the State Capitol,” Republican House candidate Shawnna Bolick criticized incumbent Rep. Eric Meyer for his failure to have a single bill in which he was the principal prime sponsor signed into law despite being in office for six years.
“We need effective leadership,” Bolick urged.  “Zero bills passed in six years does not amount to effective leadership.”
“As a member of the majority party in the Legislature, I will work with my colleagues and across the aisle to get things done,” Bolick added.  Her three top priorities are education, economic growth, and sound fiscal policies.
“Rep. Meyer represents families of all public school aged children in LD 28 who attend both district and charter schools.  Yet, his voting history proves he opposes a high quality education by voting against allowing charter schools to expand (HB 2099) and he doesn’t believe in performance-based reforms that would allow our public school children to be taught by the best and brightest teachers (HB 2227).  More importantly, Meyer has done nothing to increase the portion of education spending that reaches the classroom, which is only 54 cents of every dollar, among the lowest in the nation.”
Bolick continued, “As your state representative, I promise to put our school aged children above politics and ensure more money is allocated to classroom instruction and not diverted along the way regardless of whether the school is labeled a district or a charter school. Finally, I believe in a high quality education.  I support teachers with mastery of their subject area.  Our future depends on kids receiving the best classroom instruction and I will fight to ensure every kid regardless of their socioeconomic status or zip code has access to the best teachers.”

Shawnna Bolick has a proven record of tangible accomplishments, most recently raising millions of dollars for scholarships for disabled, foster and low-income schoolchildren. Shawnna worked a bi-partisan coalition alongside Congressman Chuck Rangel (D-NY) while promoting high performing public schools in the Bronx.  Shawnna continues this mission in a non-partisan fashion when focusing on better educational opportunities for low income families across Arizona.
Shawnna Bolick has lived in Legislative District 28 for 13 years.  Shawnna and her husband, Clint, have two children, Ryne (12) and Kali (9), plus their six year old rescued greyhound, Beary Goldwater, living in the shadows of Squaw Peak.
