for AZ State Senate 

Your current LD14 State House Representative

Call to Join the team

Paid for by Drew John for State Senate

After serving 16 years as a Graham County Supervisor, Drew John was elected to the AZ House of Representatives in Legislative District 14 (LD-14) in 2016. LD-14 includes Cochise and Greenlee Counties, most of Graham County, and the eastern side of Pima County. 
In announcing his candidacy for state senate,  John said, “I have always told people that every individual needs to step up for their community when the opportunity arises. With our current Senator Gail Griffin reaching her term limit, if I don’t step up when this opportunity presents itself, I feel I would be a hypocrite.

My Experience  

  • Provides smaller more efficient government
  • Protects and preserves our rural lifestyle
  • Prevents needless cookie cutter regulations impacting our rural businesses and residents

Rep.  John indicated that he had been approached by numerous individuals who urged him to consider running and he has decided to step up for the challenge. He went on to emphasize the importance of LD-14 continuing  to have a strong voice in the representation of its rural residents and that greater emphasis be placed on consistent communication with local leaders and citizens in each district community. He is looking forward to continuing the current LD-14 team by helping Becky Nutt and Gail Griffin be elected to the house of representatives. He also outlined the following goals if elected to serve in the AZ House of Representatives:

  • Protect and preserve the rural lifestyle.
  • Prevent cookie cutter regulations for AZ, especially those impacting rural businesses and residents.
  • Smaller and more efficient government.

John, who is a 4th generation Arizonian, currently lives in Graham County. He spent most of his youth living on a ranch and farm in Cochise County, about 20 miles north of Benson.

He was a graduating member of Project Central Center for Rural Leadership Class XXII and selected as a Fellow for the Flinn-Brown Foundation Civic Leadership Program.
