Representative Jeff Weninger is serving his fourth term for Legislative District 17. His district serves Gilbert, Sun Lakes and a large portion of Chandler, where Jeff resides with his wife, Janet, and their three children.

Before serving as a State Representative, Jeff served on the Chandler City Council for eight years and held the position of Vice Mayor.

  • The Boys & Girls Club of the East Valley
  • The Chandler Center for the Arts
  • 1st Vice Chairman Republican LD 20

In the State House of Representatives, Jeff is Chairman of the Commerce Committee. Jeff’s first session helped Arizona entrepreneurs gain the route to needed capital funding with his crowd-funding legislation passing unanimously in both House and Senate. Jeff had a record total of five of his bills primary sponsored bills made into law at the end of the first session.
  • AZ Chamber of Commerce Rookie of the Year
  • AZ Capital Times Honoree Rising Star
  • Chandler Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year
  • Precinct Committeeman of the Year
  • Champion of the Taxpayers

Representative Weninger is proud to serve the citizens of Arizona. He has made a commitment to be a leader for small businesses, education dollars in the classrooms and to ensure the safety and protection of every citizen in the great state of Arizona.
