He has also worked in the commercial transportation industry transporting agricultural commodities, and still holds a commercial driver’s license.

Joel is a lifelong Republican and has been a Precinct Committeeman since 2014. He also served as a state delegate in 2016. He is a member of the NRA, a frequent hunter, and a Constitutionalist.
District 4 needs someone with deep roots in the district that hears and understands our concerns and challenges – not someone who plays party politics and is beholden to extreme agendas.
Joel is running for state representative in District 4 to take power out of the hands of legislators and put it back in our local counties, cities, and school districts. He will ensure that Arizona continues to be a business-friendly state, create jobs, grow the economy, and fund education. He will protect our constitutional freedoms and make sure the needs of this district are front and center at our Capitol.
Joel resides in Buckeye with his wife, Shauna, of 17 years and together they have 4 children.
