ABOUT CHIP HOWARD, YOUR NEXT ARIZONA GOVERNOR

I am an innovator, inventor and manufacturer in a competitive environment that brings revenue and trickle-down jobs to Arizona from around the country and overseas.  On a grand scale, this is what Arizona’s citizens need.  Have no doubt, I am an anti-establishment conservative.

With pride, I am America first, Arizona first and middle-America first!  Pardon the expression but no more B.S, just results.”

I was technically a candidate for Arizona Governor in both 2010 and 2014, not as a serious candidate but to learn the ropes and pitfalls of the election system.  This and a lifetime of experience have prepared me to win the Governor’s election in 2018 as the Conservative & Anti-establishment alternative to the pitiful partisan leaders that have failed to serve us in recent years.
I was born and raised in a small village in rural upstate New York, small enough that I began my academic life in a two-room schoolhouse.  This is a conservative dairy-farming environment right out of Norman Rockwell.  My father was a plant engineer at a factory.  Much of my youth was spent on my mother’s family farm where she grew up in a challenged depression-era existence.  But it was a wonderful community for a child and, to this day, I still know almost everyone, even in neighboring towns.  It is an environment which instills family and community values along with a good dose of work ethic.  Whenever I was off to a job interview or to meet someone important, my mother always ordered me, “Make sure they know that you are a highly-decorated Eagle Scout”.  It was a different place and time, but as a child, I always worked on the farms, picking grapes and fruits with the migrant family across street, laboring for a building contractor and learning mechanics at the corner garage and boat marina.  I never resented the work as it was a learning opportunity and I wanted to have the money.  Have no doubt, I am an Anti-Establishment Conservative.

MOVING FORWARD

For college, a major university was financially out of the question.  But with my income and some help from my family, I received a BS degree in Science from a college of the New York State University system.  The income to support this came from five years as a laborer for a heavy construction company in Erie, PA.  For graduate school, I received MS and PhD degrees from Penn State University majoring in Science and Agriculture, specializing in biochemistry and physiology.
Following school, I moved to Phoenix in 1986 where my first job was a seven-year taste of the corporate world with the Del Webb Corporation where I managed a large staff.  For better or worse, the corporate world is an excellent training ground for both teamwork and the brutality of the competitive business world.

Since 1993, I have operated my own small business here in Arizona offering services and products to a variety of markets.  I am a contract researcher for agricultural companies that market products which I have innovated.  I do site consultations throughout the country and with some entry into eastern Europe.  I am an inventor and manufacturer of mechanical equipment which is made here in Arizona and sold throughout North America and even overseas.  I provide trickle-down jobs for many local businesses and bring revenue into the state from elsewhere.  The bottom line is that it isn’t just talk, I have to be better than my competitors and produce superior results for my clients as a matter of my survival.  That is innovative thinking which will move Arizona ahead in the competitive world and bring jobs to our citizens.  Just doing more of the same will give us more of the dismal same.

A culture of financial responsibility is ingrained in my personality.  Even when I had nothing, I have never carried a credit card balance or borrowed money for a car.  Instead, I did without until I was financially able.  I paid off my thirty-year mortgage in about ten.  In business, the strength is my reputation for producing world-class product but at low cost.  I am known for orchestrating well-oiled endeavors that motivate and bring out the best of all team contributors.   As I do in my personal and business lives, I will bring small and efficient, yet effective, government to Arizona as it was originally intended to be.  It is results that count!

MY FOCUS TO A BETTER FUTURE FOR ALL ARIZONANS

JOBS FOR OUR CURRENT CITIZENS

I have no desire to bring more people to Arizona just so that someone can sell land, houses and appliances (I have just lost the people that currently control the state).  I am determined to create opportunity for our current citizens to achieve whatever quality of life they are willing to work for.  Not give-aways, opportunities!  I am delighted to help anyone that has ambition and a noble plan.  For those raised in an environment without such direction, we will arrange the necessary mentoring. 

EDUCATION

Additional funding will help but money alone can’t make a significant improvement in the education of our children.  I will demand drastic improvement that can only result from a complete paradigm change in the delivery of education (refer to my Education Plan for specifics).  And, we don’t need direction from the circles of elite academicians that will perpetuate the misery that we already have.  This requires real-world determination that will not be intimidated or ambushed by the numerous special interests that degrade the system to what it is now.  Education is my passion.

FINANCIAL SUSTAINABILITY

We are broke.  Sad to say, but we are broke and the increasing monster of unfunded liabilities will soon make today look like easy street.  A long history of no leadership courage has brought us to this point.  Courage means that you are not just concerned about re-election and do not pander to voter blocks.  That is what drives one group of austere politicians to give to the rich while skimming everyone else.  The other group of spenders gives organized groups the world and falsely hopes that someone in the future will pay for it.  Being an Independent, I do not have obligations to voter groups and will do what is truly right for everyone.

De-polarize State Politics And Heal the Divides

Have you noticed that all Republicans vote one way and all Democrats vote the other way.  Issues are not judged on their merits or what is best for the people, rather, it is pure partisan power politics and it is paralyzing our futures.  As an Independent, I have no loyalty to either party which means that I can work with both parties and bridge the divide.  I can bring to bear the merits of all involved in order to best serve the citizens of Arizona.

Both political parties will feed you full of you-know-what and promise you the moon during election season.  But, recognizing that neither political party has any true intention what-so-ever to improve life for Arizona’s citizens, to quote another figure in the political world, “What the hell do you have to loose”.
