ROBERT C. ECTMAN
Hello fellow Arizonans,
I am a fiscally responsible, progressive, problem-solving Democrat in the Race for Governor of Arizona. Coming from the “working-class”, living paycheck to paycheck for many years, and housing the homeless in a poor area for over two years, I understand the struggles of individuals and families living on the economic edge!
I am ready to lead and serve all the people of Arizona with honesty, trust, transparency, compassion, determination, and high ethical integrity. I am independent-minded and believe in well-organized, productive, effective, and trusted good governance.
With Democracy literally on the line, I am prepared to stand up to DEFEND DEMOCRACY and step up for the people of Arizona and America who would really benefit from a skilled problem-solver that offers strong, authentic, principled, organizational and visionary leadership!
I am appalled by political corruption and government waste and every residue of it will be exposed and expunged under the Ectman administration! I will promote and incorporate free-market approaches, including corporate social responsibility, social entrepreneurship, and public-private partnerships, to generate NON-TAX REVENUE for our state, and make sure we use wise, cost reduction strategies when spending public funds.
I align with the Democrats on most social issues and progressive principles and bring to the table many cause-driven solutions using the power of unity, volunteerism, and public-private partnerships to address the multitude of serious problems causing untold, but mostly preventable suffering that so many Arizonans shouldn’t have to endure! Aspiring for a long time to be a more impactful philanthropist, I conceived these innovative solutions from what I estimate to be more than 10,000 hours of knowledge gathering and research I compiled over the past 18 years. For example, driven by genuine compassion, passion, and purpose, I am confident we can solve complicated social ills like homelessness and I will never rest until it becomes nonexistent! As Governor, I will have a lot more extensive research conducted and analyzed by subject matter experts on the root causes of every problem to help create comprehensive and cost-effective problem-solving plans.
my pledge and promises to
My administration will be committed to managing and organizing our state of Arizona’s collective affairs more wisely and transparently by adopting and applying the principles of the proven most effective and inclusive leadership methods and philosophies.
I promise to be a Governor you can always trust to tell the truth; to be a true public servant, to always do what is best for the people of Arizona, and never, ever
I will assemble for my administration the most qualified, talented, and diverse organization of people and problem solvers. We will organize these brilliant men and women into a
01. I am ready, as your Governor, to lead and usher in a new era of state unity, public participation, mass volunteerism, community service, cooperation, and collaboration. Together, with steadfast dedication and purpose, we will endeavor to achieve social, economic, water, and environmental sustainability and make Arizona THE WORLD LEADER in research and development, innovation, and economic growth!
02. The Ectman Administration will launch the MISSON IMPROVE ARIZONA (MIA) initiative with comprehensive and cutting-edge research to discover and create innovative solutions that will propel Arizona from the bottom to the top rankings in pre-K to 12 education; student proficiency in math and reading; pupil-teacher ratio; high school graduation rates; health-care access; public health funding; public safety; economic opportunity; racial and gender equality; home affordability; and air and water quality.
03. We will implement bold community development and wealth-building plans in every under-resourced community across Arizona which include making large investments in proven upward mobility programs and human capital while optimizing learning, skills enhancement, innovative training, and workforce development programs. This will raise workers’ productivity and increase wages consistently as engines for creating high-paying jobs and a faster-growing, more dynamic, economy.
04. In collaboration, again with purpose-driven people, public service groups, and community leaders, my administration will help Arizonans rebuild connections with each other, accept and embrace our differences, and help co-create a positive cultural foundation in Arizona. My goal as a moral leader is to foster a new social paradigm of Love and Kindness, Truth and Trust, Civility and Decency, Unity and Community, Transparency and Accountability, and Peace and Prosperity!
“My heart breaks for the individuals and families in under-resourced, neglected, and impoverished communities. I will work with the utmost diligence and determination to create opportunities that will improve the quality of their lives!” RCE
