Liz Zebal

The Republican Women of Pinal County will meet at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, February 16 in the SaddleBrooke One Clubhouse Coyote Room. Two Arizona Representatives and one Arizona Representative candidate will join us to speak on a variety of interesting topics including: the Arizona State budget, the economy and immigration. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Arizona Representative Vince Leach has been involved as a citizen activist in many areas of government, working on behalf of conservative causes. His experience ranges from work at the school board all the way up to County Government, the State Legislature, the Arizona Corporation Commission, and the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission. His passion for public service led him to run for an open State House seat in 2014 and he was elected by the people of LD11 in November 2014. Vince is a graduate of the University of WI-St. Point with degrees in Political Science and History and is a Vietnam era veteran.

Arizona Representative Mark Finchem was born in Detroit, Michigan and attended Western Michigan University. Mark retired from the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety in January 1999 after 21 years of service and relocated to Tucson, Arizona where Mark joined software maker Intuit Inc. In 2007 Mark left Intuit Inc. to pursue self-employment and built a very successful residential real estate practice focused on the concept of always placing others first. Mark and his wife Tanya have been married for over 10 years and live in Oro Valley.

Arizona Congressional Candidate Bret Roberts was born and raised in Ohio and then moved to Tempe, AZ in 1999. He and his wife Oly have lived in the City of Maricopa since 2009. Two of their three adult children attended schools in the Maricopa Unified School District and one is an ASU graduate, all now living away from home. For the love of Maricopa and a calling to serve in elected office, Roberts was elected for his first term as Constable for the Pinal County Maricopa/Stanfield Precinct in 2014 with a 20 percent margin over both his primary and his general election opponents.
