JD Mesnard State Senate

An educator endorsed by doctors, nurses, police, firefighters, and small business owners.

A Message from J.D.

As your legislator, I’ve written laws that helped create jobs, supported our small businesses by cutting bureaucratic red tape, and protected health coverage for Arizonans with preexisting conditions.

I’ve also passed legislation to direct more money into our kids’ classrooms, create the Teacher Academy at our universities, helped employees get wages rightfully owed, and protected survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse. My bills to confront the opioid epidemic, shield seniors from financial exploitation, promote veteran-friendly college campuses, and increase savings for the state’s rainy-day fund (proving crucial during this pandemic) were also signed into law.

For these accomplishments, I’ve won awards for Guardian of Small Business, Champion of the Taxpayer, Friend of the Family, Open Government Leader and more. I even had the honor of being elected Arizona Speaker of the House, where I crafted fiscally responsible budgets and personally sponsored the largest education investment in state history, dramatically boosting teacher pay 20%.

Now we face historic economic challenges that require someone with the right experience and a track record of success to navigate. That’s why I need your vote. Let me continue using my diverse background, which includes husband (to a registered nurse), father, professor and small business owner, with master’s degrees in business and public administration, to keep delivering results for you.
