ELECTION: Knecht has support of constituents

The people of this community deserve a representative who shares our values, our vision and who works with our community to achieve a prosperous Arizona. We deserve a representative who will collaborate with all of the people in our district — who puts the people ahead of any party.

We have this leader with Independent Kathy Knecht who is running for State Senate in Legislative District 21. Kathy Knecht is not hard to find — she’s at events talking to people in our community daily. From high school football games to candidate debates, Kathy will never turn away an opportunity to meet with the people in her district nor will she turn away an opportunity to debate her opponent. Her opponent, Rick Gray, didn’t show up to a TV debate with Brahm Resnik.

Knecht supports fully funding public education, bringing transparency to politics, supporting legislation that ensures children and seniors have access to quality healthcare, bringing high quality jobs to Arizona, taking care of Arizona veterans, keeping government control local and so much more.

How do we know where Knecht stands on all of these issues? Because Kathy Knecht is all over our district talking to voters about her vision and her values and accepted invitations to all four debate invitations.

Legislative District 21 has two upcoming opportunities to meet the candidates this month. The Clean Citizens Elections Commission is hosting a debate this Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at the Peoria City City Council.

An LD21 candidate meet and greet is scheduled to take place 6:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 15 at the Sun City Country Club. Kathy Knecht is committed to sharing her views and will be at these events. Gray says he won’t be there.

The voters of LD21 deserve representatives who respect them enough to show up and share their vision for the state of Arizona. Does Rick Gray respect his duty as State Senator and the people of LD21 enough to attend these events?
