“It’s time to focus on creating a world that works for everyone, on collaboration and possibilities, on what we can create together, not who we can tear apart. We take chances bigger than ourselves. Today we have a choice to make. Who are we going to be for our children?”

Sarmiento FamilyI’m a first-time candidate for state house. Until recently I thought politics was something ‘other people’ did. I was content to run my small business and raise my two boys, Luke and Leo. But as I started paying more attention to what’s happening at the Legislature, I noticed a lot of talk down there about the concerns of people. People In Downtown Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe, Chandler. I don’t hear many people talking about the needs of all of us up here in the Northwest Valley, and that’s got to change.

I grew up on the west side and I’m raising my family here. We need people at the statehouse who represent us and our needs. For way too long, our voices have not been heard in our government. Looking around, waiting for someone else to stand up and take a leadership role I realized that politics isn’t something ‘other people’ do. It’s every one of us, you and I…all of us. Together.

My campaign stands for common sense. These days, partisanship has replaced reasonableness; proving the “other side” wrong has replaced compromise. Because of that, too often we let good public policy fall apart in the name of maintaining allegiance to an “R” or “D.” That needs to change.

Are you happy with politics as usual? Me neither. That’s why I’m running for Arizona Statehouse – to bring a new voice to the Northwest Valley.
