House of Representatives: Justin Wilmeth

Justin was born in West Texas where his father worked in the oil industry. His ancestors are tough, hard-working folks who instilled in him the importance of commitment, loyalty, understanding, and hard work. It was Justin’s time on his family’s farms that showed him the importance of having a pro-business environment in place for the economy to thrive. He got his start in politics/government in 2004 helping a friend from high school run for office. From there, he served in state policy and grassroots positions in Oklahoma, immersing himself in how state laws impact us on a daily basis. Later, because of the amazing career and economic opportunities offered here, Justin decided to make Arizona his home. He served at the Arizona House of Representatives as a policy advisor for the Republican caucus and was provided with opportunity after opportunity to learn about the needs and priorities of Arizonans across the state.  Justin is proud to hold a BS in Political Science from Arizona State University, where he is currently completing a Master of Public Administration degree. He is a proud resident of the Kierland district, where his interests include baseball, foreign policy, road trips and movies.  We want Arizona to continue to be a place of freedom and opportunity, both for ourselves and for future Arizonans.  Justin intends to bring principled, conservative, visionary leadership to Arizona’s House so that together, we can protect and extend Arizona’s bright future!
