Meet Vanessa:

“28 years ago I moved to Tucson to attend UA and I never left because I love Tucson. This passion for our community is what now drives me to expand my 20 years of public service in the nonprofit sector and run for elected office.

I’m running because we need a leader in District 4 who is passionate about our community, has a positive outlook for Pima County, and is willing and eager to advocate for residents. We can do a lot more to move Pima County forward with a more collaborative and engaged leader. I look forward to rolling up my sleeves and putting in the hard work on behalf of District 4.”
