In her role with Propy, Leslie’s gained a heightened awareness in the way our government is operating. Part of her responsibilities involved engaging with state level governments across the nation. She became exposed in how our local governments had completely disconnected from the mission of serving the people. She understood that American leadership in technology, innovation & economic competitiveness was at serious risk if our government did not change. Leslie saw so much opportunity for progress and growth if the right leaders were in place who would and could address the social, political and economic dimensions associated with change.
In order to bring about technological progress, it needs to come from the top down. This is why Leslie decided on state executive office.
The AZ Secretary of State must think like a politician, a citizen and a business executive all at once. The individual who holds office must understand the preservation of state, observe federal & state statues and about the impact of state office. To understand the office in its full complexity requires a kind of probing intelligence, someone willing to think across those different disciplines and scales.
Leslie understands how to combine emerging skill sets, industries, and fields with refined principals and effectively apply them.
Innovation in Government is Possible. Leslie will prove it.
