Kathy Knecht for Arizona State House of Representatives

Legislative District 21


What matters is the person, not the party!

The goal of ending the status quo in Arizona politics is as timely and as critical as ever. I want to extend my longtime service to our community and repair some of the damage done to public education, local control, and voters' rights in Arizona. I continually strive to maintain my reputation as a leader who puts people and doing the right thing first. As the saying goes, "insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results."

Well, the Northwest Valley has elected the same people, answering to the same special interest groups and touting the same agenda for far too long. Unless and until we change the legislature, we won't change the trajectory of our state: a teacher crisis, corruption, ignoring local control by bullying cities and towns into submission, and hyper-partisanship which ends in either extreme legislation or gridlock.

My vision is a representative state government that just does the right thing - every time.

Our agenda is future-focused. It’s not about pandering until the next election cycle. We can work together to improve our quality of life today, AND create a legacy of prosperity, health and empowerment for ourselves and our grandchildren.


I care about people and I'm disgusted by a "politics as usual" mentality that doesn’t put people first. My longtime, non-partisan service on the Peoria School Board and a variety of non-profit boards has rewarded me with the opportunity to serve students and teachers; military families, arts, seniors, victims of domestic violence, local business and organizations.

Let’s change the status quo!

I would love to meet with you and your friends! I’ll even bring the cookies and the coffee. Please call me to chat or to set up a gathering.

Make no mistake. This is a local election, but the stakes are high for all of Arizona. We welcome support from across our great state!
