September 23, 2016
PHOENIX – Sinema for Congress today released its first TV ad of the 2016 campaign cycle, “Homeless,” highlighting Kyrsten’s record to strengthen education and make college and job training affordable for Arizona families.
In the ad, Kyrsten reflects on the important role education and student loans played in her life and emphasizes her commitment to ensuring all Arizonans have the same opportunity to succeed.
“Education was my way to a better life,” said Sinema in the ad. “It’s why I fought so hard to lower interest rates for student loans and make college and job training more affordable.”
Through her Drop that Debt initiative, Sinema took Arizona students’ stories to Congress and fought for legislation to lower student loan interest rates. Sinema also supported legislation to reauthorize the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education (CTE) Act and strengthen career and technical education for Arizona students.
