As a student and activist, I know and fully understand the difficulty of feeling as though politicians don’t take our view and opinion into account at all. This past year working with Doug has truly given me a glimpse into a future where we can sit down and share opinions with our policymakers and politicians. I believe that with Doug in the Senate we can start to make our long journey near the equal and open end that student activists hope for, a government that listens.
Hello, my name is Carla DeBow and I would like to let you know what I am supporting Doug Ervin for State Senator.
As a teacher, mother and grandmother, I know that access to quality education is key to giving every person an equal opportunity to succeed. It makes me angry to see how budget cuts and moves towards privatization have damaged our public schools and hurt our children. But I saw a ray of hope last year when I met Doug and heard how he was going to use his financial experience to fund education and grow our economy.
I was impressed by his family, energy, and knowledge. While I will never agree 100% with any lawmaker, I know he will listen to everyone’s opinion, represent us honestly, and always do what is right for the people of Arizona. So, I ask you to join me in voting for Doug Ervin for State Senator.
When asked why I support Doug Ervin for State Senator the answer is simple, Doug is exactly what Arizona needs to provide a rational and logical course of action to our State with regard to education, environment and the equality of all.
I first met Doug when we worked together nearly 30 years ago. He was working full time and going to school to become an accountant. Doug impressed me with his thorough and complete understanding of issues prior to making a determination of a resolution to any problem. He always looked at the issues from all sides and came up with a sustainable and fair solution.
I am an Arizona native, husband, father, and grandfather who wants the best for Arizona and his family and can think of no one who would better represent the people and State I love better than Doug with his family values, intelligence and caring for others.
Doug and I road in the MS 150 bike ride from Phoenix to Parker Dam in support of the charity. What makes this significant is that I am blind and we rode a tandem bike for two days. You learn a lot about a person when you put your confidence and safety in the hands of another while he is steering your course while you are pedaling the miles to the finish.
This is why I am so confident in my support of Doug in his ability to steer Arizona in a thoughtful, secure and sustainable direction.
