Aaron Lieberman filed paperwork on Friday, May 11th, to run for the Arizona State House representing Legislative District 28.
“I am honored to join the LD28 team, running alongside Rep. Kelli Butler and Senate Candidate Christine Marsh, to finally bring much-needed change to our state,” said Lieberman
Lieberman grew up in LD28 right in front of Piestewa Peak, and attended Madison Heights in elementary school.
“It was a different time. Democrats and Republicans worked together to solve problems – and that pragmatic attitude allowed Arizona to flourish.”
But the state he returned to with his family three years ago looked quite different.

How to make a difference in LD28
Many Candidates in Arizona need petition signatures to qualify to be on the August 28, 2018 ballot and a minimum of 240 $5.00 Clean Elections Qualifying Contributions from any voter to qualify to receive Clean Elections Campaign funds.

Via AZ Corporation Commission (ACC) Candidate Bill Mundell:
The Corporation Commissioners could, on their own, order a rehearing. Instead, they are allowing APS/Pinnacle West to make it as difficult as possible for its customers to question whether a rate increase approved by the Commission last August is justified.Read more
