Tiffany Shedd lives and works on a farm in Pinal County, Arizona, 90 miles from the US-Mexico border. While that may seem quite a distance to a lot to politicians in Washington, DC, Tiffany and her neighbors regularly experience the consequences of the federal government’s failure to secure our border – as drug runners and illegal immigrants trespass on their land and commit crimes. The failure to secure the border is a national security and human rights disaster, which is why Tiffany will work tirelessly with President Trump to stop the flow of drugs and criminals into our state. This means supporting a border wall, enhanced technology, more boots on the ground, and better systems to monitor who is in our country.
They have borne the ultimate sacrifice for our nation, yet when they come home, too many of our veterans are neglected, left behind and, tragically, never welcomed back into society. Injuries, both physical and psychological, go untreated. In rural Arizona, we feel this neglect even more. Lack of local resources, long wait times, hours-long drives to VA facilities, and chronic mismanagement have many veterans feeling as though they have nowhere to turn. Tiffany believes this is unacceptable. She has a plan to introduce legislation that matches veterans with job opportunities that relate to their military training and match volunteers with veterans organizations to provide services such as grant writing and donations. Tiffany has already spoken with leaders in law enforcement, border patrol, and construction that have pledged support for this plan. Like President Trump, Tiffany is committed to going to bat for our veterans, and ensuring they receive the treatment, care, and opportunities they so desperately need and deserve.
To Tiffany Shedd the 2nd amendment is more than just a talking point. She has raised her children with a deep respect for firearms, safety, and self-defense. Tiffany is an avid shooter and firearms enthusiast. She and her husband established the Central Arizona Target Shooting Range to promote youth shooting sports. Tiffany is a 4-H certified youth pistol instructor, and a NRA certified youth shotgun instructor. The 2nd Amendment is non-negotiable. Tiffany will never cast a vote or take action that in any way infringes upon our 2nd Amendment rights.
For Tiffany Shedd healthcare is a deeply personal issue. Twelve years ago, her daughter, Summer, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Like Tiffany, Summer is a fighter. She beat the odds and today is an energetic, fun, and smart young woman. It was through this experience of caring for a sick child that Tiffany fully came to realize the need for quality care that families can afford. Tiffany will stand up against liberals’ efforts to eliminate private health insurance and give Medicare for all to illegal immigrants. Instead, she will make sure we have a patient centered and free-enterprise based system that allows families to make the choices that best fit their needs.
Jobs and the Economy
There are few sectors in our economy that feel the power of big government like those who produce from the land. Farming, ranching, mining, and forestry are the life blood of rural Arizona and are at the mercy of an out-of-control federal bureaucracy. Tiffany will work with President Trump to identify and eliminate unnecessary job killing regulations, keep taxes low, the economy strong, and stop Democrats from passing the Green New Deal.
As a constitutional conservative Tiffany believes that we all must have the freedom to choose how we worship, how to educate our children, and the values that our families live by. As a homeschool mom, Tiffany makes sure that her kids are well versed in the Constitution and in the Christian roots on which our country was founded. Strongly pro-life, Tiffany will always stand up for all of those who are unable to fight for themselves.
