Unfinished Business

In my eight years as State Representative, I have consistently worked to support public education, provide quality, affordable healthcare for all Arizonans and create more high-paying jobs. I have used my undergraduate degree in economics, my experiences as an ER doctor, and my eight years on the Scottsdale School Board to advocate for sensible policies that protect children, provide opportunities, and invest in the future.

I am disappointed that we have not yet restored education funding to pre-recession levels and we have done little to bring quality jobs to Arizona. We had other choices. We still do, but we need to change our priorities on how we allocate our state revenues. Only when our state budget reflects a commitment to funding a K-12 public school system that prepares students for affordable higher education and for 21st century jobs, will we experience the economic growth that will truly move Arizona forward.

We have had successes. I was part of a bipartisan coalition that expanded Medicaid coverage to 300,000 Arizonans. I worked with my colleagues across the aisle to stop the further expansion of Empowerment Scholarship Accounts, or vouchers, that would have transferred millions more from our public schools to private schools with no accountability as to how the money was being spent.

I know my work at the State Capitol is not finished. I am convinced that my voice is still needed. As the ranking member of the House Education, Appropriations and Health committees, I know I have been an effective representative of the interests and concerns of my constituents and I want to continue to advocate for Arizona's children and families in the State Senate.

My family and I value the continued support of thousands of residents of Legislative District 28 and concerned citizens from across the state. I am optimistic that with your help, I will return to the Legislature as State Senator.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me about any legislative issue.

Thank you,
Dr. Eric Meyer

What Eric Stands For

Education

Investing in our kids must be our state’s first priority. Since the beginning of the recession, our state legislature has cut $4 billion from our public schools, and funding for our state universities has been reduced by over 50 percent.

Growth

We must continue to diversify our economy. I am an advocate for economic sectors that have sustainable, long-term potential, such as high-tech and biotech businesses. Our universities must remain world-class centers for research that also prepare our students for 21st Century jobs.

Ethics

I have introduced legislation the last several sessions that would ban all gifts by lobbyists to Arizona’s elected officials. No more free trips. No more free tickets.
