Sylvia Tenney Allen
State Senator - District 6
Republican
For the last ten years, it has been my honor and privilege to serve the people of northern Arizona as a state senator and county supervisor. From the beginning of my service, I committed that forest health, natural resources, education, and jobs would be my priority as a state senator. I'm proud to say that we have delivered on this commitment. On forest health, we have worked closely with the federal government to accelerate environmentally sustainable restoration of our forests, leading to new jobs and tax revenue. On education, I have served as chairman of the Senate Education Committee, passed legislation in support of teachers, children and administrators. Voted for the teacher salary increase and more funding for our schools. On jobs, we have passed balanced budgets and kept taxes low, allowing us to successfully recover from the Great Recession and become one of the most economically vibrant and fastest-growing states in the country. As a native and lifelong resident of northern Arizona, I have a deep love in my heart for the people and communities of this region and look forward to continuing the great work we have started together. I appreciate your support and your vote.

I am a fourth-generation Arizonan, an independent business owner, an educator and proud blue-collar worker. I am the father of two daughters and the husband of a public school teacher. Most of all, I am a hard-working, middle-class American. I support my family by working on the railroad, working cattle, as a substitute teacher, and by running my family-owned hardware store in Holbrook. These experiences have taught me family values, the importance of hard work, and the devastating impact the underfunding of public schools has had on our communities. This is why I am running for office - for the sake of my family and my community. While serving on the Holbrook city council for 13 years, I have seen what bad legislation can do to a city, and how to mend that legislation. I have continued to watch the Legislature let our education and transportation go to the wayside. The lack of funding that continues to come out of our legislature to pay for maintaining and improving our roads is unacceptable and we need someone who will fight for rural Arizona in Phoenix. I want to represent Arizona's Sixth District to repair the systems that are broken in my state.

Bobby Tyler
State Representative - District 6
Democratic
I am the current Mayor of Holbrook, and a third-generation Arizonan from McNary, Arizona. I am running to be the representative for Legislative District 6 to create a prosperous future for generations to come. After years of the status quo, I am committed to fighting for rural and northern Arizona at the legislature in Phoenix. Economic development is how we are going to bring good paying jobs, and a world-class public education system, to northern Arizona. I have lived a life of public service. I spent over 33 years working in the power industry where I learned and worked many positions and assignments, including safety officer, ensuring those around me were working in a safe environment. I trained firefighters in the safety of fire behavior and power plant mechanics in fundamentals of the trade. I have been a member of several unions and will always fight for workers' rights. I am running to be the voice that the State leaders have forgotten. A voice for the struggling young families trying to make ends meet. I fight for the people struggling to find a job with benefits and a fair wage. I will build a stronger Arizona for all.
