The Maricopa Community Colleges are an asset for our diverse communities across the Valley. Over the course of this campaign I have heard loud and clear the voice of our collective residents. They want a governing board that will bring stakeholders together and build consensus.

I am proud of the growing coalition - these individuals transcend party affiliation and areas of expertise. However, they all know the important role of our community colleges and want to work together to make them the best in the nation.

I am humbled by their support, and I am also ready to get the work done. I hope you will join our movement and that I can count on your support on or before November 6th!


State Senator Kate Brophy McGee
