The Goddard FamilyThank you for visiting my website.  I am running for Arizona Secretary of State because the Arizona we want is not the Arizona we’re getting. An increase in big money in politics is silencing citizens’ voices. Bills like HB 2305 threaten important voter rights. Others like SB 1062 hold us up to National ridicule.

I am running to help restore Arizona to be the nationally respected, innovative and inclusive place it has been for most of its 102 years. I believe my experience as a Navy veteran, in law enforcement and making government really work at the local, state and federal level prepare me for this challenge.

Legislature created opening for Dark Money

State Sen. Reagan voted to end registration of charities

PHOENIX – With anonymous corporate cash already flowing into Arizona, the legislature voted last year to strip the Secretary of State’s authority to make charities register – removing one of the only tools the Secretary of State had to shed light on Dark Money.

Despite opposition from the Arizona Nonprofit Alliance and numerous legitimate charity organizations, state Senator Michele Reagan voted to remove these powers from the office she now seeks.

My statement on marriage equality in Arizona


Today's legal decision isn't just a victory for gay and lesbian Arizonans whose equality under the law is rightfully being recognized. Today is a recognition that basic fairness trumps short-term political interests and crass attempts to divide our state.

It was only nine months ago that the Arizona legislature voted to legalize discrimination by passing SB1062. Today, we're celebrating diversity and equality.

I want to congratulate every Arizonan who fought for this day. When I first started working and campaigning with LGBT groups in the early 1980s, it was hard to believe this day would come. I can't express how glad I am that it has.

I hope today's news gives politicians more courage in the future to stand with communities who aren't being treated fairly -- no matter what the political pressure.
