“Joshua grew up across the rural West, the son of an immigrant mother and a father in the Indian Health Service. His middle and high school years were spent here in Tucson. After college, he joined the U.S. Department of State, where he served for almost twenty years. As a third generation commissioned officer, Joshua’s tours included Mosul in northern Iraq, Pakistan, Lebanon, Zimbabwe, and the Dominican Republic.

In 2018, he returned home to Arizona to look after his widowed father. Joshua has seen first hand the struggles of Arizona families and has been involved in fighting for the common good ever since. He is running because we need to act now to secure Arizona’s future for all our families.

Jonathon is running for the AZ Corporation Commission because he believes the commission needs members with technical backgrounds in order to successfully regulate Arizona’s utilities.

Carolyn’s note: the 3 Dem candidates for AZ Corporation Commission are running for 3 seats, so it’s uncontested in the AZ Primary on July 30, 2024. But they will face off with 3 Republican nominees in the General Election. 2 term Pima County School Superintendent Dustin Williams has no opposition in the Primary or General elections in 2024.
