Dr. Paul Gosar is a conservative Republican representing Arizona’s Fourth Congressional District and currently serving in his fifth term. After 25 years as a dentist and watching Arizona middle-class families and small businesses struggle under Washington Democrats’ job-killing agenda, Dr. Gosar decided it was time to make a difference. In 2010 he ran for Congress against an incumbent Democrat - and won. Determined to stand up for Arizona families, Dr. Gosar has continued to challenge the status quo, offer common sense solutions, fight against liberals and Special Interests, and often, stand up to his own party.
As a member of Congress, he is focused on fighting for the interests of the people of Arizona. By repealing burdensome regulations and fostering an environment for economic growth, he's working to create more jobs for our families. He's working to keep our families safe by securing the border and ending the influx of illegal immigration. And he's reforming government by cutting federal spending and forcing accountability.
In 2017, Dr. Gosar was named Chairman of the Congressional Western Caucus, founded in 1983 to promote rural values, preserve our uniquely American way of life, and combat federal overreach over our land, water, and natural resources.
He was also named Chairman of the Natural Resources Committee's Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources which oversees American energy production and mining on federal lands, critical to Arizona's economy.r.Congressman Paul Gosar has earned the recognition as one of the most conservative members of Congress based on his voting record fighting for a border wall and border security, fighting against amnesty for criminals, never raising taxes, applying the Constitution first, keeping his promises, and fighting for life and against the abortion industry.
In addition, Dr. Gosar has been rated as the most effective member of Congress because of his work getting bills, programs and amendments passed through Congress that directly help the people of Arizona. His efforts to reduce government waste and reduce spending have resulted in nationwide recognition. Conservatives love him and Liberals hate him for the same reason...he keeps his word
Gosar is a devout family man and cherishes Arizona's culture of family values. He and his wife Maude have been married for nearly 30 years and have three children.
U.S. Representative in Congress - District No. 4
Judy Burges, a longtime Skull Valley resident and former state senator for LD22, has formally announced her candidacy to fill one of LD1’s two upcoming vacancies in the state legislature. The conservative Republican is well known to Yavapai County voters after representing the southern portion of the county as part of LD22 until redistricting transferred the area into LD1 following the 2010 census.
Ms. Burges served in the Arizona House of Representatives from 2005 to 2012, and the state Senate from 2012 to 2018. She now joins five other announced candidates, four Republicans and one Democrat, to fill one of LD1’s two seats in the State House of Representatives. To date, she is the only announced candidate with prior legislative experience. The former Senator’s conservative credentials, high name recognition and deep ties to Yavapai County could propel her into the lead in what is shaping up to be a sharply contested August primary.
As a candidate for state office, Ms. Burges calls herself “an unapologetic conservative” and “a Christian who supports family values, the right to life, school choice, border security, and the protection of constitutional freedoms, especially free speech and the Second Amendment.”
Ms. Burges has indicated she will run as a traditional candidate and not accept any form of public financing. It is still relatively early in the campaign season. Candidates can file a statement of organization with the Secretary of State at any time and have until April 6, 2020, to file a minimum of 690 petition signatures to earn a place on the ballot.

ED CocchiolaI have lived in Arizona since 1957 — I love Arizona! To me Arizona represents beauty, freedom, and prosperity. I find the people of Arizona to be hard working folks who care about their state, their families, and their children.
I am a constitutionalist who loves his county, and his state. I respect and admire the men and women in the armed forces, and I want only the best for them. That goes for our vets who served so proudly to ensure our freedoms.
I am a life member of the NRA. I believe and cherish our 2nd amendment. Unfortunately, we don’t enforce the gun laws we currently have and so the politicians want to make more laws. Sadly, we don’t have a gun problem in Arizona, we have a mental health epidemic. Arizona ranks close to the bottom of out 50 states in mental health and yet not enough attention or funding is given to this issue or population of individuals.
I’ve worked in construction all of my life. I love to create and build things. I like to problem solve and work hard. I was proud of my time working for Vechtel construction helping to build Palo Verde for over decade. I met so many good people, who like me loved Arizona and saw the value in our states rights.
I am pro life and I am for woman’s rights. I believe in equal pay for woman, rights of property owners, bible as TRUTH, a strong secure border. We have to stop the flow of illegal activity and contraband coming across our border.

We need constitutional fortitude from our elected officials. We need Borders. We need less government in our lives. We need to empower entrepreneurs to grow by getting out of their way. The federal government has too much control.
