In 2007, Regina became the first Latina elected to the Tucson City Council and the first woman to represent Tucson’s Ward 1. While on the Council, she has helped lift Tucson out of the Great Recession to its most prosperous decade in recent history, writing the City’s Primary Jobs Incentive program and calling for the Creation of an Economic Initiatives Office – both of which have resulted in thousands of long-term, good-paying jobs.
I’ve loved Tucson from the first time I visited and knew this is where I wanted to raise a family and build a home, business and life. I have worked hard to have a positive impact on our community through my work as the Chairwoman of the Downtown Tucson Partnership and President of the Museum of Contemporary Art.
Nikki Lee is an Air Force veteran, information technology expert, wife, and mother of three. As a City Council Member, Nikki will fight for economic development, job growth, and environmental sustainability. She is running as a City Clean Elections candidate because she believes in grassroots campaigns and the importance of connecting directly with Tucsonans rather than dark money donors.
I am Lane Santa Cruz and I am running for the Ward 1 Council seat. I am bilingual-bicultural and a testament to the resiliency of the people in the Southwest. At my core, I am an educator and community organizer. Before returning to work as a Council Aide to the Ward 1 Council Office, I spent 12 years in nonprofits and grassroots community efforts working on sexual/gender violence, food justice, migrant rights, DIY bicycle mechanics, and Ethnic Studies. Since obtaining my Ph.D., I teach courses in Mexican American Studies and Education at the UA and organize community bike rides on the Southside.
