Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! 2015 has been a whirlwind year, and I'm proud to have served and fought for LD24. I hope that your holiday season is full of love and that you get a chance to check out at least one of the many eventsthat Phoenix has to offer this time of year.
While we are talking about the holidays, I hope you've noticed my invitation on social media to join in my holiday tradition: The 12 days of Ken Kristmas. For the 12 days leading up to Christmas I will be sharing different ways in which you can contribute to my campaign for re-election so I can keep fighting for a better Arizona. Please follow along on Facebookor Twitter and help us in any way that you can.
