By: Noah Kutz, April 22, 2019
Mitzi Epstein and Jennifer Jermaine discuss legislative priorities with the Chandler Chamber of Commerce. Both representatives support strengthening education funding.
Jermaine wants to use the government surplus to restore funding to community colleges. Aside from education, Jermaine also wants to see funding directed to fix failing infrastructure in Arizona's roads and dams. Epstein stresses the importance of using funding to create not just jobs, but careers for people in the community, particularly people living with disabilities. She supports a living wage for workers.
