A member of the Arizona House of Representatives, Vic Williams was born and raised in Whittier, Calif. At age 17, he dropped out of high school to work in his family’s motorcycle business. By his early 20s, Vic decided to chart his own course and returned to school, gaining his GED and attending Rio Hondo Community College in Whittier while supporting himself working graveyard shifts unloading trucks in the Los Angeles produce market. When Vic was 25, he started his career in the materials-handling industry as an account manager for Crown Lift Trucks, a manufacturer and supplier of warehouse equipment in downtown Los Angeles. Two years later, Vic started his first firm, Racksource, a warehousing equipment company. From modest beginnings and an initial $40,000 investment, Racksource grew into an industry leader and innovator in warehouse equipment sales that employed as many as 100 workers in the field throughout the western United States.

In building Racksource, Rep. Williams first realized the importance of becoming politically active. In getting a conditional-use permit for his business, Vic learned how the heavy hand of government bureaucracy can interfere with private property rights and impose unreasonable demands on entrepreneurial endeavors. It was a process that shaped Vic’s views on the need for limited government and the proper roles of the public and private sectors in our society. After getting his business off the ground, Vic began investing in real estate, particularly in multi-family housing holdings. His property investments have also proven lucrative. After achieving some success financially, Rep. Williams began giving back to his community by becoming active – as a volunteer and through monetary and in-kind donations – to his Rotary Club, Habitat for Humanity, Boys and Girls Clubs and the American Red Cross in his home town of Whittier, California. Representative Williams’ commitment to public service continues to this day.

In 2002, Rep. Williams found himself at a crossroads in life. His then one year-old son, Trevor, was being raised in Tucson, Arizona. By May of 2003, Vic sold his company, Racksource, and moved to Arizona so he could part of his son’s everyday life. He is a caring and loving father who is devoted to his son. Vic is committed to ensuring that Trevor receives a quality education. Often you will find Rep. Williams volunteering in his son’s classroom and Vic knows that education starts in the home.

Shortly after arriving in Pima County, Rep. Williams became active in the community with his work through the Marana Care Fair, the Northwest YMCA and his neighborhood homeowners’ association. In 2004, he began volunteer work for the Pima County Republican Party, serving as chairman of an effort to get out the vote in 2005, as treasurer of the county GOP in 2006 and vice-chairman of Legislative District 26 GOP. In 2008, Vic ran for and was elected to the Arizona House of Representatives from Northwest Pima County. He was re-elected in 2010. Rep. Williams serves as chairman of the House Transportation Committee and sits on the Appropriations and Banking and Insurance committees.

Fulfilling his campaign promises, Vic has worked tirelessly as a state lawmaker to balance the state budget in a fiscally-responsible manner, to pass state-developed illegal immigration laws and protect essential public services, such as K-12 education and the University of Arizona.

“Restoring our economy, both locally and nationally, cannot be done by government, but can only be accomplished through private-sector economic growth,” said Rep. Williams. “That’s why I have been committed throughout my political career to conservative, pro-business policies and the principles of limited government.”

Vic knows his community and the people in it. He has knocked on more than 12,500 doors and engaged in over 4,000 doorstep, kitchen and living room conversations with the voters of LD26 since first running for office in 2008. Representative Williams attends hundreds of public events each year throughout Marana, Oro Valley, Saddlebrooke, Flowing Wells, the Catalina Foothills, Casa Adobes, Tucson and Pima County. Vic takes the time to listen to the voters of his district and understands the issues that are facing his community.

Rep. Vic Williams serves the communities of Marana, Oro Valley, Saddlebrooke, Flowing Wells, the Catalina Foothills, Casa Adobes, unincorporated N/W Pima County and Tucson. You can contact Representative Williams at vwilliams@azleg.gov or 602-926-5839.
