OUR VISION
FOR LD22 & ARIZONA

NOW.

Our vision focuses on six priority areas that are crucial to building better, more vibrant communities.

That vision includes increasing investment in public education, continuing to create good jobs, and bringing in more resources that help our communities thrive. 

Help make this vision a reality. Continue supporting Lorenzo’s work on our behalf, serving Legislative District 22 as our Representative.

 

QUALITY PUBLIC

EDUCATION.

From preschool to high school, all students deserve a high quality public education, preparing them for success in school and life. Lorenzo believes in our youngest residents and their future potential.

 

Securing $45 million to restore access to high-quality PreK programs is just one of the ways Lorenzo demonstrates his commitment to our students so they can become tomorrow’s leaders.

Working with district superintendents, libraries, and community groups, Lorenzo obtained funding for 40,000 free books, putting them into the hands of LD22's youngest residents. This focus on early literacy helped teachers improve reading skills in classrooms throughout our community.

 

Lorenzo is a champion for education in Arizona and stands with the Red for Ed movement.

GOOD JOBS & A
STRONG ECONOMY
.

Good-paying, dependable jobs are one of the building blocks of our communities and families. This is why Lorenzo champions Legislative District 22 and the West Valley as a place for new businesses to put down roots.

 

Lorenzo's was the swing vote leading to the expansion of  the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company. With a $12B economic impact to Arizona, Lorenzo's vote was vital in creating at least 1,600 high-quality tech jobs and many thousands of additional union jobs, including many in LD22. 

He voted to create funding expansion opportunities for startup businesses in LD22 and Arizona through the angel investment tax credit. This expansion is projected to generate economic output of $1.3 billion and tax revenue of $44 million.

Lorenzo led efforts to pass authorization of the first Opportunity Zone project in the nation – a 58-acre lodging, retail, and housing site now under construction in LD22.

With Lorenzo’s experience as both a small business owner and Fortune 500 business leader, he understands the support local businesses need in order to grow and thrive.

AFFORDABLE HEALTHCARE.

Access to affordable, quality healthcare is vital to our families and our community’s success. That’s why Lorenzo is proud to work with community groups and healthcare providers to expand health services to members of our community who would otherwise be unable to access or afford care.

 

Lorenzo paid out of his own funds to help bring the first COVID-19 testing site to the southwest portion of LD22. 

 

He voted against Big Tobacco to keep vape stores and their advertising away from our schools and childcare centers.

He voted to increase funding for our frontline workers, expanding health and safety within our LD22 neighborhoods.

 

Lorenzo is committed to keeping up the fight for healthy, strong communities at the Arizona Legislature.

THRIVING COMMUNITIES.

A trusting relationship between first responders and residents is crucial to maintaining a strong, safe community. Lorenzo understands this and is committed to resources and community conversations that build trust and accountability.

 

Long before the federal infrastructure bill passed, Lorenzo fast-tracked street repairs and road improvements throughout LD22.

He voted for the official recognition of the Matricula Counsular ID, increasing both safety and economic benefits within our LD22 communities.

Securing thousands of food boxes for LD22 families struggling during the pandemic, Lorenzo brought stability to families in crisis.

 

Lorenzo believes in bringing people and communities together. Festivals, arts initiatives, parades and holiday celebrations are just a few ways he champions opportunities to build a safer, more inclusive community for all.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION.

From decades-long droughts to extreme weather, it’s clear our environment needs protection. Future generations depend on us taking action now to address the critical issue of climate change.

 

Lorenzo's vote to address Arizona's wildfires brought $100 million to first responders on the frontlines.

 

Lorenzo is committed to working on long-term, sustainable solutions that protect and preserve our environment for our children and their families.
