Maria Syms for Arizona House

A Proven Leader for LD4

“We need brave, principled leaders with courage to stand up for what’s right and the integrity to listen to you. As your Representative, I will continue to build on my strong record supporting safe communities, law enforcement, victims’ rights, border security, low taxes, job growth, and educational choice. Together, we can build a stronger Arizona.”   
 ~ Representative Maria Syms



Violent drug cartels, human trafficking, rapes, fentanyl in our communities and schools, and record opioid deaths are the direct result of failed open border policies. Enough is enough. As a Representative, I have a record of standing with our sheriffs to secure the border. I will continue to fight for the rule of law, a secure border, and a safer Arizona. Period.

  • As Assistant Attorney General and Assistant U.S. Attorney fought human trafficking and drug cartels.


"The system is failing us." These are the words of a young widow eulogizing her hero police officer husband killed in the line of duty a few months ago. She’s right. It is time to stop defunding the police and start defending them. As a former Assistant United States Attorney and Assistant Attorney General, I understand government’s number one job is to keep us safe. I will always prioritize public safety resources so our men and women in blue have the tools they need to do their jobs.


education and parents

I am alarmed by the low test scores and lack of focus on our children's academic progress and emotional well-being. With student verbal and math achievement on the decline, we are in danger of losing an entire generation. As a State Representative, I consistently supported quality educational choices and accountability so no child is left struggling in school. I also voted to increase pay for teachers. I will continue to build on that record by putting our children first and requiring that bureaucrats and school boards do the same.

education and parents


  • More funding directly to teachers and less to bureaucracy.

  • Empower parents to have a say in their children’s educational options.


  • Voted for record increase in teacher pay.

  • Expanded school options.

  • Improved accountability.


a better arizona for all


  • Lower Health Care Costs.

  • Reduce taxes for families and businesses.

  • Inflation protection for families.


  • Reduced prescription drug pricing.

  • Helped Veterans transition to the civilian workforce.

  • Reduced frivolous lawsuits for small businesses.

a better
for all

The failed policies of the Biden administration are hitting us where it hurts – at the gas pump and in the grocery store.  In these difficult times, leaders must be especially vigilant about protecting hard-working Arizonans from out-of-control government spending and high taxes.  As your Representative, I stood firm against government waste and attempts to raise your taxes and gas prices.  As a small business owner, I understand that low taxes and less regulation are essential for an economy that benefits all Arizona families.
