I am running for the Arizona State Senate to provide the oversight, insight and foresight that our State will need to ensure that the generations who follow have a State with a sustainable environment and an education system that prepares them for the constant change that the future brings.
I am running for this office to improve the quality of life for all Arizonans. I want to build an Arizona that challenges its youth to change their communities for the better, that creates and sustains an environment where business can develop and grow and provides opportunities for the aging population to contribute their wisdom, knowledge and guidance.
We need people in the legislature who can identify what is right with our State and build on its strengths to make it better and not just lament about what is wrong and criticize it. We are living in difficult times and government has a role to play in helping people get back on their feet and then stepping back to let them prosper and grow.
We may not all be in the same ship but we are sailing the same seas and we have to help each other through the storm. We can and will do better if we are led by those who can see their way to calmer seas and brighter futures.

He has received numerous awards for his advocacy of children and families during his legislative career and had the reputation for being a reasonable, thoughtful and articulate legislator who reached across the aisle to work in the best interest of Arizona.

The Arizona Legislature plays a vital role in the day to day lives of all Arizonans. Among its many duties is that of watch-dog over the entire operation of the Arizona State government.
Oversight requires a keen eye and a discerning approach to the many government entities that the legislature funds and evaluates every year through the budgetary process. Dave’s experience in the legislature as well as over thirty years of directing and managing corporations that have done business with the state gives him a unique perspective on the functions of governmental departments.
We need a perpetual evaluation of government to ensure that it is using our tax dollars prudently, effectively with an approach that is complementary towards business development and not in conflict.
Arizona government must be a catalyst for Arizona business particularly in the research and development of new technologies in the areas of clean energy (non fossil fuel) and energy conservation and sustainability, web based services, optics, agriculture, military defense and healthcare among many other burgeoning industries.
All of this opportunity is predicated on Arizona developing and maintaining a first class education system from pre-K to post graduate programs. The legislature needs the insight that Dave can provide to ensure that education becomes the number one priority of state government.
Knowing that healthcare, prison sentencing reform, transportation infrastructure, well planned growth, accessible child care and prevention services are all interrelated to improving the quality of life for all Arizonans is the insight that our state needs to meet the challenges of our times.
Despite the troubling economic times that Arizona is experiencing, the future of our State will include continued growth that will result in at least a tripling of our population over the next few decades.
The Legislature must provide the foresight into that future to ensure that we:
I had the opportunity to meet Mr, Bradley at Neil and Carol West's home. His message is clear, he cares, and he will be elected. I want to thank Mr. Bradley for running a clean campaign !! Civility and honesty are always the best way to get a message across.
