About Jevin D. Hodge

I will help Arizonans get back to school and work by listening to the community. I have the consensus-building skills and pragmatic approach to problem-solving necessary for public service. I am committed to bipartisan decision-making and view service to my county as service to all who live in it, not just to those who vote for me. I am a deal-maker by trade, a pragmatist by upbringing, and have been guided by my faith since birth.

An experienced leader in business and education equity ready to get Arizona on the right track.
