My name is Bob Worsley, and I’m the current State Senator for legislative district 25, located in the heart of Mesa. I was first elected in 2012 after first defeating Russell Pearce in the Republican primary. Some people know me as the founder of SkyMall, but I’ve led a number of other successful business efforts in Arizona and across the country.
I am a current member of the Senate Commerce, Energy & Military Committee and a member of the Senate Transportation Committee. I am also the current Vice-Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee.
I am truly blessed to be able to call the East Valley home for over 30 years. I ran for the State Senate because I wanted to use my successful business experience to find practical and innovative solutions to our state’s most complicated problems and to strengthen our local economy.
I am not a career politician and I have no desire to run for higher office. I am running for the Arizona Senate because I believe Arizona needs more statesmen and less partisan-bickering and pandering. I am running because Arizona deserves an elevated conversation toward a brighter future for the sake of our children. I invite you to join me on this journey.
