Vince Leach, a SaddleBrooke resident, has served on an advocacy group for the SaddleBrooke residents, worked for Arizona Corporate Commission and has been actively involved in politics as an activist and supporter in the county government and state legislature.  He is running for the first time for an elected office this year. Leach has decided to run in order to be more involved and active in resolving community and state issues. The top three priorities if Leach were elected are improving education to increase job growth, lowering taxes and lowering regulations. 

Leach believes “that the state has done a very good job in getting the budget back” and “that while we (state) still have debt we’re reducing that”. Leach also added that some of the cities in Arizona have ranked as some of the top cities for job growth in the U.S. An area that public officials need to address moving forward would be the debt issue, as Leach believes the debt affects numerous areas in the state including one of the most important: education. Leach has worked with Jesse Kelly, State Representative Steve Smith, Arizona State Senator Al Melvin and other campaigns. If Leach is elected, he hopes to reduce regulations and increase growth and affordability in water and power in Arizona. Leach is currently be supported by Arizona Sen. Al Melvin, Maricopa Sheriff Joe Arpaio, State Representative Steve Smith and Warren Petersen along with others.
