Brenda Barton


Incumbent House

Born in Arizona’s Gila Valley, Brenda Barton is a fifth-generation native of rural Arizona. In 1871, her great-great-grandfather established the first crossing on the Colorado River, and by 1880, the family settled in Lee Valley in the White Mountains. Brenda spent her early years at the family’s historic homestead in Artesia, just a few miles south of the Gila River in what once was Mexico. Brenda’s Roots and Boots are firmly planted in the rich red soil of Arizona.
