Otoniel "Tony" Navarrete
State Senator - District 30
Otoniel “Tony” Navarrete was born and raised in Arizona to immigrant parents. He currently serves as State Senator for Arizona's 30th district and sits on various committees ranging from Commerce, Health and Human Services, Higher Education and Workforce Development,. Tony was raised in West Phoenix in a home built by his late grandfather. He attended the Isaac School District, Carl Hayden Community High School, and undergraduate degree from Arizona State University. At an early age, Tony was inspired to promote social justice, including breaking the cycles of poverty through community development at the nonprofit Neighborhood Ministries. Following years of community involvement and working closely with formally adjudicated young adults, he moved to New York to work on housing and jobs related issues, an experience he brought back home to Arizona after learning his mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. Today, she remains in remission. Tony remains committed to working with leaders throughout Arizona, while actively fighting to advance comprehensive immigration reform and policies that strengthen families, including increasing civic participation. Since being elected to Arizona's legislature in 2016, Tony has sponsored/cosponsored over 100 bills focusing on strengthening education, expanding access to voting, promoting small businesses, and reforming our justice system.
