INDIVIDUALS

In my opinion, Rick Gray is very qualified for the position of State Senator of Arizona.  He is straight forward, thoughtful and caring to make the right decisions for his constituents as well as for the betterment of all in Arizona.  He is a hard worker and has great communication skills to work both sides of the aisle.  I highly recommend and support his continuing as State Senator.

Over the past seven or so years, I have come to know Mr. Rick Gray as a constituent driven legislator.

Rick’s inherent ability to logically understand, convey and persuade passage of complex legislation for the benefit of his constituents, sets him apart from all other candidates in the Senate Race for LD21.

Rick’s high energy, honesty and easy accessibility further enhances his value to our needs as citizens of this great District.

Vote Rick Gray for the LD21 Senate Seat – It’s a no-brainer!
