Friends,

I have announced that I will be running for Congress in 2020 to serve Arizona’s 6th Congressional District.

My life has been about giving back to my community, and now I want to direct my focus and energy to doing even more for Arizona in Congress.

I’ve been getting things done on education and economic development in Arizona for years, and those are two things not talked about in DC often enough.

Arizonans showed us in 2018 that they’re ready for a leader who reflects our changing population and values, and that’s why I believe I’m the right leader at the right time to represent this District.

As the leader of Back to School Clothing Drive, I’ve helped make a difference in the lives of more than 250,000 elementary public school children by supporting their basic needs to help them achieve success in school.

As a member of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council and later the USAA leadership teams, I played a role in the USAA corporate announcement and expansion, one of the largest job creation projects in the past two decades. That project resulted in the creation of 3,000 jobs and the development of the one million plus square foot corporate campus in the northwest section of the district.

Growing up in an Air Force family, I traveled the world and lived in many different places throughout my youth. That experience allowed me to build a foundation in being able to relate to people from different backgrounds, and that’s what I think we need more of in our leadership today. I believe in doing what’s right above adhering to political ideology.

There is too much focus in Washington on fighting and not enough focus on results that improve local Arizona schools and expand opportunities for everyday people and those who have or want to start a small business. We need to replace the Washington inaction with some common sense and Arizona problem solving. The bottom line is we need a member of Congress who will tirelessly fight for the people of this district.

My campaign will focus on protecting Arizona families’ ability to have a good life, fighting against policies designed to only benefit special interests, improving the education system and creating new pathways for people to enter the job market and the economy.

If you’re with me, please join my campaign today.

Sincerely,
Karl
