Jackie Thrasher is running for State Representative in District 20. Jackie is a former State Representative and retired Music Educator from the Washington Elementary School District. As a state legislator, Jackie supported better pay for teachers and co-sponsored the Teen Driver Safety Act, which decreased accident rates among teenage drivers. She also fought for tougher penalties for repeat DUI offenders and protected workers by creating a safer environment at the State Hospital. She’s running for office because she knows how the cuts to education in Arizona are harming children and schools.
