One of Minjarez's top priorities is property tax relief, which she says hasn't been meaningfully addressed at the legislature. She's also focused on infrastructure, planning responsible growth and quality-of-life issues such as housing, healthcare, mental health issues and generational poverty.
She says businesses should play a part in some of those initiatives and bring their perspectives to the table.
"If your workers are well and your people are well, we thrive economically," Minjarez explains. "If you're not addressing mental health, proper healthcare, food deserts [or] housing, how do you expect people to thrive and contribute to your business?"
