Candidate, U.S. House Arizona District 6
Dad of 6, fighting to preserve the American Dream & conservative values
Juan grew up right here in Arizona’s new 6th congressional district, and has dedicated his career to fighting on behalf of our community and giving us a voice.
As a first generation American, Juan’s love of country and patriotism were born out of his upbringing in a working-class family. His parents instilled in him conservative values, a strong work ethic, and an optimistic can-do attitude.
While attending public schools in Tucson, Juan held several jobs and earned scholarships to pay for school. He was the first from his family to achieve a higher education, graduating from Pima Community College and the University of Arizona.
Juan’s professional career has centered around our community’s best interests. During his time at the Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, he fought for lower taxes and the elimination of unnecessary regulations on behalf of small business owners.
Today, too many politicians talk about the border, but have never even been to the border. Juan understands first-hand the need to secure our border. As Senior Advisor to Governor Ducey for more than 7 years, Juan has worked closely with Border Patrol, border sheriffs, ranchers and residents along the border to bring resources and attention to our border crisis. Also, as Vice-Chair of the Arizona-Mexico Commission, Juan understands the value and importance of Arizona’s trade and tourism relationship with Mexico. In Congress, Juan will fight for policies that secure our border and enhance trade.
Juan’s family story is the American Dream story. America is the land of opportunity that has provided his family, like for so many others, the freedom to pursue the American Dream. Today’s policies coming out of DC are pushing the American Dream further and further out of reach. We must fight back.
Juan and Laura value faith, life and family as the proud parents of six active kids: Zoe, Juan IV, Kenneth, Lily, Lucas and Gloria, who they are raising in Tucson. Juan’s favorite activities include coaching his kids’ flag football teams and also volunteering in his church.
Join Juan as he fights for the priorities of AZ-06, to protect the American Dream and preserve our conservative values.
