Mitzi Epstein, a small business owner, state PTA leader, AYSO Soccer leader,  and lifelong community problem solver, has spent her life working at the community and state levels to strengthen the economy. As a former Kyrene school board member, she recognizes that local businesses and neighborhood schools are vital for our community’s economy and quality of life. As a computer systems analyst for multinational companies she worked to make efficiencies and improve the process of doing business.

"I applaud Mitzi for bringing together parents, teachers, business leaders and retirees for meaningful collaboration towards shaping the future of Kyrene students." - Anna Marie Montalbo, teacher            

Bring business and education leaders together to forge strong solutions for Arizona. 

Grow our Economy:

  • Grow the Innovation Economy by supporting small business start-ups and continuing to attract companies like Intel and Apple with an educated workforce and reliable infrastructure.
  • The Innovation Economy will produce quality jobs, with great pay and a ladder for advancement. Those jobs will make positive ripple effects in the economy for all of Arizona.

  • Measure what matters. Our students are tested enough! We must also count what prepares students for life, like arts career and technical skills, world languages, and Advanced Placement (AP) courses.
  • Protect public education with real school choice! Empower parents to be involved in their child's education.
