Personal Information:
Home City: Tolleson

Member Since: 2010
A life-long Tolleson and West Valley resident, Representative Tovar was a teacher for five years, and served on the Tolleson City Council for seven and a half years and was Vice Mayor for two and a half years until she joined the House of Representatives. As a teacher and mother, she understands the issues demanding immediate attention such as schools and hospitals, infrastructure needs, job and housing losses, and a declining economy. Representative Tovar has been at the forefront of diverse projects that have brought revenue and job growth to her city. The completion of roadway construction, attracting commercial and retail businesses to the area, advocating for new housing developments, promoting environmentally friendly programs and working to build new police and fire stations are just a few of her accomplishments.

She is proud of her roots in Arizona, proud to be a product of the public school system and proud to give back as a teacher, mentor and leader in her community. Representative Tovar believes that while there are challenges ahead of us, now more than ever, everyone needs to band together for the greater good of the people of Arizona.

Representative Tovar is dedicated to making sure members of the community feel included in the public process, and to informing and educating constituents when tough decisions are being made or when compromise is the better path. She believes that we must do everything we can to work together towards a brighter and stronger Arizona.

Representative Tovar and her husband have been married for 16 years and have two wonderful sons. She is a member of the House Judiciary,  Education, and Appropriations Committees.
