Biographical Info:

Denise Ceballos Viner, is a woman of faith that is not afraid to step up and face adversaries. She is fearless and courageous, and believes God called her to rise up for such a time as this.

She is a wife, a mother, and a grandmother who immigrated from the Dominican Republic in the 70’s and in return, fell in love with this country. She has worked with thousands of families and children throughout the valley for almost 25 years & finds joy in serving, and advocating for the community.

Her husband is a Commander with the Phoenix PD. Therefore her support for law enforcement is strong, yet she understands the concerns and struggles of the people.


I am running for office because I care about our city to just sit back and watch incapable people run it to the ground. I have been volunteering my time to the community for over 20 years. I understand the people’s cry for justice, as well as their need for community safety. I have been married to a Police Officer for over 20 years, I also understand our officers frustrations for lack of leadership and support from city leaders. I don’t want Phoenix to turn into another New York City, or Chicago. I am willing to face the odds and run for a seat that will allow me to represent the people while supporting law and order.
