Dear Friend,

Arizona’s First Congressional district is a special place. Stretching from Arizona’s northern border down to southern Arizona, it’s one of the biggest congressional districts in the country. It’s the place you and I live and are proud to call home. It is, in many ways, a Congressional district made up of small towns and communities where you know your neighbors and they know you.

I’m not a career politician looking for a promotion. I’m running for Congress because our district needs a voice in Washington who understands our district and the issues it faces. I was born in Springerville and live there today. As a rancher and small businessman, I have seen first-hand the issues facing our district and the effects that policies from Washington have on our economy.

I’m a conservative who believes in limited government, lower taxes, and economic freedom. I believe that our district can thrive if we can escape the heavy hand of a federal government more concerned with regulating our economy than letting it grow and prosper.

As your next Congressman, my top priority will be to grow our economy. I will help the small business owners, the farmers, the ranchers, the miners, and every other industry in our district grow and thrive so that we have good jobs for anyone who wants one.

Over the next year, I hope to get a chance to talk to you and hear your concerns. I want to know what issues are important to you and your family. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you want to share your views or concerns with me. I want to hear from you.

Gary Kiehne
