Working for Us, Fighting for Arizona

Dear friends and supporters,

Thank you for visiting my campaign website! Here, you will find information about what I am doing at the legislature and how you can get involved in my re-election and other efforts to change our state in 2012. I encourage you to watch videos of me addressing issues important to our state, learn more about my positions on the issues, and to get involved in my campaign.

When I was elected two years ago, Arizona was facing the worst economic climate since the Great Depression, and budget shortfalls larger than any in state history. During my first term, I am proud to have stood up for our area and our state – working to create jobs and opportunity, and fighting against harmful cuts to services and vital programs.

There is still a lot of work to be done. We need to restore draconian AHCCCS cuts. We need to properly fund education. And we need to work with businesses to create jobs in our state. While none of this will be easy, I am ready to continue tackling these challenges – and as long as I’m at the legislature, I will keep working and fighting for you. You can count on that.


Ruben Gallego
State Representative
