“He is a small business owner, entrepreneur, and community activist who has long worked for positive change and is committed as ever to making the second district a better place to live, work, and raise a family. He believes we need less politics and more progress in Washington and he is running for Congress to bring a new vision, a new direction, and a new generation of leadership to southern Arizona.
Billy is not a career politician nor does he want to be one. Active with downtown and regional economic development, Billy is a local businessman with a broad set of leadership experience. From co-founding Prep and Pastry, a successful Tucson eatery, to acting as principal of Sandor Vineyard in Pearce, located in Cochise County, Billy understands how to work with numerous stakeholders to bring an idea from conception to reality. When elected, Billy plans on using these skills and experience to fight for the working and middle-class families of the second district.
He is currently employed as the Operations Manager at the historic Hotel Congress. He was educated in public schools, attending Pima County Community College and the University of Arizona. ”
