Brandi Christine Bateman

Meet the Candidate

Running For:
Board of Supervisors
District 2
Political Affiliation:
Executive Assistant
BS in Business Management - Graduation 9/2020
Married to Matthew Bateman, 3 children, 7 grandchildren
My family came to the Yavapai County in 1979 and despite teenage angst, I never left. I raised three children and enjoy my seven grandchildren, all right here. Yavapai County is an exceptional place. This position is distinctive in the capacity to serve the people. District 2 families and communities should be healthy and free to exercise their rights. Government should be smaller, smarter, efficient and at its core respect local control. I have been working in government leadership for the past 7 years, providing valuable insight to process and operation. Prior to my government work I successfully owned and operated a small business in the Verde Valley. Doing the good work is a priority for me and partnership is the strength of that success.
