When I was growing up in Arizona, our political leaders demonstrated the basic values of collaboration and respect by working together at the State Capitol.  When I moved back home to Arizona a few years ago, I was struck by how much the place I love had changed -- including a total breakdown in dialogue between Democrats and Republicans.


I pledge to invite every member of the House Republican Caucus to a one on one meal during my first 90 days in office. Getting to know each other as people is a critical first start to find areas of common ground.
