Volunteer Spotlight

Tara St. AngeloTara St. Angelo is a new resident of Arizona who will be attending Pima Community College in the fall to study Political Science. A regular at the campaign office, she has become nothing short of a rock star for us.

"I just moved to Oro Valley from Sioux Falls and I wanted to get involved in Arizona politics," Tara explains. "When I looked into what was happening in southern Arizona, all I heard about was the campaign for Tim Bee!"

When living in South Dakota, Tara volunteered in several elections and was on staff for Senator John Thune's campaign. "I had been so involved in politics in South Dakota that I knew I couldn't give it up when I moved here. It is very important to me to be able to have a say in who my elected representatives will be," she says enthusiastically.

Tara said that she has read a lot about what Senator Bee has done for Arizona and she likes what she sees. "He is a person of strong moral convictions and that is the kind of person we need in Washington. There has been a major lack of ethics in Congress and I know that Senator Bee would be able to change that."

Tara said once she finishes her undergrad she would like to go to law school and then move to Washington, D.C. She expressed interest in working for a family focused organization.
