Is there a particular representative, past or present, whom you want to model yourself after?

From long-serving members, I would model myself after Rep. Barbara Lee, who had the courage to cast the only vote in opposition to giving the President the Authorization to Use Military Force against any nation, group or persons who planned and initiated the attacks on 9/11. This vague resolution which passed the House 420 to 1, has resulted in America’s never ending military intervention in the affairs of seven nations to date with little to no congressional oversight. Rep. Lee was right to oppose the AUMF in 2001 and the rest of Congress was wrong. She is a singular profile in courage and I aspire to be like her when I am elected.

From the newer members, I admire Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Ayanna Pressley, Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, Rep. Ro Khanna, and Rep. Pramila Jayapal. They are all bold leaders with an ambitious vision for our country. They aren’t afraid to speak up when faced with hate and continue to introduce bold, meaningful legislation that puts people first.

Arizona’s Congressional District 01 stretches through Arizona, covering much of the state outside of Phoenix and Tucson for more than 58,000 square miles, and serves a population of over 750,000 people.

Putzova will appear as part of DORR’s critical issues breakfast series held on the third Thursday of the month. The organization presents different issues at each breakfast. There is a $15 fee to cover the cost of breakfast and the public is welcome.
