About
Rachel Walden

Rachel and her husband and their daughter live in Mesa. They love warm weather, hiking, and traveling the state. Rachel has lived in Arizona since she was a child. Rachel and her husband are life long Republicans.

She received a Bachelor's of Science with honors from Arizona State University and continued at ASU for a Master of Arts. She was hired by the University as a Teaching Assistant and Research Assistant and is a fellowship recipient. She is a first generation college graduate.

Rachel grew up working in finance and business. She was raised by a hard working single mother in a family of 5 children. Her mother was a self employed financial planner and Rachel spent years working in the family office. That experience led to her career with Vanguard. Rachel managed the Institutional accounts for some of the most recognized companies in America. She learned to navigate government regulations and write policies to streamline administration. Rachel was exceptionally skilled at having bold conversations with her clients to improve processes and improve client relations. Rachel had securities licenses and received annual training on fraud prevention and money laundering and other securities related topics.

She inherited her work ethic and patriotism from her mother's example. Rachel's mom made it a point to teach her children to never take a handout from the government because true freedom was found through self reliance. She taught her children the importance and blessings of America's founding principles and virtues and that the role of government was only to preserve the rights of the people. Rachel's upbringing helped her escape the leftist indoctrination found in our Universities.  

Rachel is a member of the Mesa Public Schools Governing Board, the largest school district in the state. As a Governing member she has prioritized academic achievement, parental rights, fiscal responsibility, and transparency.

Priorities

Put Arizonans First

The Commissioners regulate providers of electricity, water, gas and approve the rates the consumers pay. The Commissioners also enforce the securities marketplace to protect consumers from fraudulent investments. We need to work to create an efficient and effective organization that is responsive to our communities and businesses within our state.

 

Arizona is one of the slowest states for rate case processing. The average time is 18 months while the national average is 9 months. The cost of this regulatory lag gets passed on to the rate payer. When we improve efficiency we save rate payers money.

Stop Green New Deal Style Policy

The Corporation Commission is supposed to regulate, not legislate. Forced climate goals and forced energy investments onto utility providers put the rate payer last and thwarts free market principles. The government should not pick winners and losers in the marketplace.

The Commission exists to protect the rate payer. They have a statutory responsibility to maintain a safe and reliable grid at affordable rates, using the lest cost for the rate payer while balancing out reliable generation. 

Reliable and Affordable Utilities

Resource Adequacy, the ability of the electric grid to meet power demands, is a topic of importance for the future as the state population continues to grow. Arizona needs to continue a mixed portfolio of energy options to allow predictable, abundant, and well distributed resources across our state. 

An "all of the above" approach to energy has proven to be cost effective and reliable. Like investing, you don't put "all your eggs in one basket." Having multiple kinds of energy products help against market conditions when energy pricing and reliability fluctuates. 

No Mandates or Subsidies

Government interference drives up the cost of energy. The only factors that should be used in energy generation are cost, reliability, and grid integrity. The utility companies have the resources to make decisions to help keep their costs down and run their businesses effectively, while the commission determines whether or not to approve reimbursement of expenditures ensuring they are just and reasonable according to the Arizona Constitution.  

Endorsements

I am proud to have support from many elected officials and organizations across Arizona.
