Travis is no stranger to the difficulties faced by families across the district. He is a resident of Goodyear, Arizona and a Christian, Conservative, and Republican, in that order.

Since 2013, I have been honored to represent State Legislative District 4. During my time at the legislature, my priorities have focused on Arizona's critical water issues and water management, increased funding for public education and access to affordable health care. Now, with the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty it has created, I believe we need to focus on: -The health and safety of our community, essential workers, students and families using science based methods. -Creating a small business grant fund to restart/support small businesses recovering from COVID ramifications. -Investing in broadband and addressing the digital divide in rural areas and tribal communities. -Adequate and sustainable funding for public education, a safe learning environment, student access to technology, and interventions for special education and struggling students so that nobody is left behind. -Investing in critical Arizona infrastructure and working families. -Closing tax loopholes and eliminating unnecessary tax breaks to corporations. -Criminal justice reform. -Continued efforts to address the critical water issues facing Arizona and water management, -Continued support for agriculture which is a pillar of our economy and essential to feed our people, our state, our nation and, in fact, the world.

I’m Joel John, candidate for the Arizona House of Representatives in Legislative District 4. District 4 needs a representative who will prioritize your interests, someone with deep roots in the district. Our economy is powered by both small businesses and agriculture. We have unique education needs and hardworking people. It should be easier to run a small business and produce crops in our state. I will work to eliminate unnecessary roadblocks so our district’s economy can grow. Our kids are top priority. I grew up attending our public schools in District 4, my kids attend public schools, and I'm a former public school teacher. We should have the best schools in the state right here in District 4. I will give you a voice in your child’s education by returning more control to the local school districts where it belongs. Finally, I will protect our constitutional freedoms. I believe in our right to defend ourselves, the right to life, free speech, and religious freedom. As a husband, father of four, fourth generation Arizonan from a farming family, and CEO of a small agricultural irrigation business, I’m uniquely qualified to represent you. I look forward to serving you.

With 30+ years of experience in education, rising from teacher to superintendent to construction supervisor to consultant, I have much to contribute to Arizona's educational crisis. Having a Doctorate in Education - Curriculum and Instruction; along with a Master of Science, Construction Management; a Master of Arts, Supervision and Administration; and Bachelor of Arts, Vocational Education means that I can relate to the struggles of the unskilled worker or the college graduate, the administrator wrestling a budget or the electrician wrestling with new city codes; the management of people and the management of materials. With a lifetime of experience, now is the time to capitalize on my experience and credentials to benefit the community. My top priorities are education; quality of life such as democratic participation, access to health care, a safe-clean environment, living wage jobs, affordable housing; reducing mass incarceration so that Arizona is Number One in Education not Incarceration. I bring my most important values of honesty and integrity to the issues in my district: water policy, roads and infrastructure, and stable employment. I currently serve as the Ranking Democrat on the Land and agriculture Committee; also, a member of the Education, State and International Affairs Committees.
