John McComish and Karen, his wife of 44 years, live in Ahwatukee where she is a teacher in the Kyrene School District.  They have 2 adult children and 3 grandchildren.

Representative McComish is serving his third term in the Legislature and currently serves as Majority Leader.  He is a member of the Rules Committee, the Joint Legislative Budget Committee, Legislative Council, and the Joint Committee on Capital Review.
