Personal Information:

Home City: Maricopa
Occupation: Talent Agency Director
Member Since:2011


Steve was born and raised just outside of Detroit, Michigan and comes from a family of teachers, small business owners, medical professionals, and brave members of the United States military dating back to WWII.

He worked hard and paid his own way through college graduating with Honors from Michigan State University with a Bachelor's degree in Marketing and a Cognate in Business Law. Steve ultimately moved to Arizona in 2001 and in addition to serving in the Senate and House of Representatives, he is currently the Director of a Phoenix-based Talent Agency.

His greatest accomplishment in life is marrying his beautiful wife Jamie and they with their five children live in the wonderful City of Maricopa. As devout Christians, Steve and his family strive to live their lives according to Godís will.

GOD, FAMILY, COUNTRY is what Steve Smith stands for.

Some of Steve's primary commitments were that he would combat the illegal immigration epidemic the state was facing, balance the budget, and help fix Arizona's struggling economy and in his first year in office he kept his promise on all three. Steve authored the bill signed by the Governor that allows Arizona to construct its own border fence to help protect the citizens (something the federal government has not done), Arizona went from having a $1 billion+ deficit to having a nearly $600 million budget surplus, and Steve supported and helped lead in the effort in passing the "Jobs Bill" which moved Arizona from almost last in the country in job creation to #4.

Steve is considered the top conservative in Arizona after being ranked #1 by the Goldwater Institute and the Arizona Conservative Coalition, and was also named "Champion of the Taxpayer" by Americans for Prosperity.

Additionally, because of Steve's strong conservative record, he has earned many awards including the Conservative Hero Award and scored at the top of the major conservative and pro-taxpayer rankings.

Steve also has a 100% voting record in favor of pro-life and pro-second amendment rights.
