Godbehere, Gina

Meet the Candidate

Running For:
County Attorney
Political Affiliation:
Crime Victims' Rights Attorney
Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at Arizona State University
I have been married for 28 years. My husband and I live with our 2 daughters in the West Valley.

Under my opponent’s leadership, our quality of community life has diminished. We are seeing increased homelessness, mentally ill people wandering our streets, shoplifting occurring daily in our neighboring stores, and an increase in migrant crime fueled by an unsecured border. I have spent the last 28 years protecting this community, including 25 years in the County Attorney’s Office as a violent crime prosecutor and Bureau Chief. I am running because Maricopa County has become soft on crime. We need to fix our broken criminal justice system and end the liberal leaning plea agreements fueling our revolving door of justice. I am committed to enforcing our laws, returning the voices to crime victims and protecting this community. I would be honored to have your vote.
