My name is Bob Worsley; some people know me as the founder of SkyMall. I have actually started a number of other successful businesses. I’m the conservative that won the State GOP primary Senate race against Russell Pearce by 12% in the newly created Mesa LD 25. I have been blessed to call the East Valley home for over 32 years. I ran because I wanted to use my successful business experience to find practical and innovative solutions to our most serious problems and strengthen our state’s economy. We deserve an elevated path toward a much brighter future.

elevate AZ’s ECONOMY
Our #1 priority should be to increase jobs and facilitate recovery of Arizona economy. We should be attracting start-ups and encouraging businesses to relocate to Arizona.
Our children should be prepared in the classroom for high-paying jobs right here in Arizona upon graduating.
Our elected officials should not base their actions on special interest scorecards. Bills introduced should reflect a sensibility to real problems vs. symbolic new laws that cause strife and controversy. Reduce bills introduced to focus on “Legacy” issues that will matter in next century.
Streamlining will help us balance budgets without raising taxes and using accounting gimmicks. We need to assure transparency and a deliberative budget process.
Ban free tickets and gifts that promote influence peddling. Recognize that independence is clouded by leaders who accept freebies. Add Arizona sunshine to our legislative process. Reform lobbyist disclosure laws.
