Re: “My Pick For Governor: David Garcia

We've ran this race so many times -- putting something too similar up against a GOP candidate thinking that if we work in the middle, we'll capture some of them to vote with us. It doesn't work. Number by number, we know more Republicans vote than Democrats ...and the only way to win is to bring new voters into the mix. And to do this....we have to offer them a contrast, someone new and fresh. David brings new energy, new risk taking, fresh values and a fresh vision. And it sure doesn't hurt that his name is Garcia, so our latino population sees themselves on the ballot. The last time we elected a latino statewide was in 1974. Race shouldn't matter...but it does. That's the key to bringing the disenfranchised into the equation. I'm on board. Join us! #dg4az

Re: “'TUSD Kids First' Amasses $35,000 War Chest From Large Donations


Sept. 13, 2016 --- TUSD Board Member Kristel Ann Foster is returning a campaign contribution from a donor after learning that the donor is married to an employee of a company that contracts with TUSD.

“When I received this contribution, I was not aware that the donor is married to an individual who works for a company that does business with TUSD. Now that this issue has been brought to my attention, I am returning this individual’s donation.”

“It is the right thing to do,” Foster said. “As a public servant who volunteers my time as a TUSD board member serving children and improving education in our community, I am grateful that this issue has been brought to my attention so I can address it appropriately. Openness, transparency and honesty are values that I hold dear.”
