Issues

We need Steele Resolve for Every Arizona Family to have the Chance to Succeed. That is why Victoria is focused on her 5 Es.

Victoria’s 5 Es

EDUCATION

All working families should have affordable child care and an affordable college education for their children. Victoria will help ensure that all Arizona children have a world-class public education by returning funding to our public schools. We can no longer tolerate having the lowest teacher pay in the nation, a severe shortage of teachers, and inadequate buildings and supplies for our children. We must reverse the expansion of school vouchers – which is a deliberate ploy to destroy our public schools. Victoria will fight to protect public education from early childhood and K through 12, as well as basic adult, and community college and state university education.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

ECONOMY

Victoria will fight for an economy that is fair for everyone, not just a few. She knows that bringing good-paying jobs to Arizona will create a thriving economy where everyone has the chance to succeed. Our hard-working families deserve jobs with a living wage. Victoria will help us take advantage of our proximity to  Mexico and the many benefits of having a good relationship with our neighbor. She will end tax loopholes for corporations and others that have outlived their usefulness and restore those revenue streams for our state’s economy. We must create an economy that can fix our crumbling roads, bridges and other infrastructure. Victoria will also make sure that affordable, quality healthcare – which is a right, not a privilege – is available to everyone.                                                               

ENVIRONMENT

Victoria knows that this beautiful planet is the only one we get. She will lead the battle to address climate change and our water supply issues. She understands that living in the desert makes water a critical issue in Arizona. It will be a priority. We must become a robust clean energy state by utilizing solar, wind and other renewable energy sources. Arizona has everything we need to be the Solar Capital of the world, except for the will of the current legislature to make it so. She supports the Citizen’s Climate Lobby’s plan for a Carbon Fee & Dividend Program to reduce greenhouse emissions. Victoria has the will to make us a leader in renewable energy.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

EQUALITY

Victoria is a proven, tireless advocate for justice, equal pay for equal work, and the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment. Republicans in our state legislature have declared an all-out assault against women, people of color, the disabled and our LGBTQ populations among others. Victoria will defend the inalienable rights of every Arizonan to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. These are not just empty platitudes. Victoria has been a champion for equality her entire life, even during high school when she led the successful fight for sex education classes.                                                                                                                                                                                              

ELIMINATE GUN VIOLENCE

We have lost far too many loved ones to gun violence and Victoria is dedicated to developing sensible gun regulations, before yet another life is taken. In this country, 91 people die every day from gun violence and Congress and our state legislature does nothing. If a disease was killing 91 U.S. citizens a day it would be a national emergency and we would commit every single resource to stop it. Gun violence is a public health epidemic with a political solution and Victoria will be a part of that solution.                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

EXPERIENCE

The “6th E” in Victoria’s platform will make her successful in her fight for a better future for Arizona families. As a previous two-term state legislator, she is a proven fighter and a powerful voice for all of us. She has the skills to work across the aisle to get things done. She will truly be your State Senator because she is running as a Clean Elections Candidate. Victoria is not taking Dark Money from special interests and influencers. She has the courage and know-how to stand up for you and your family.
