Hiatt, Donald

Meet the Candidate

Running For:
County Recorder
Political Affiliation:

Retired Computer Technology Executive
BS Quality Management, Fine Arts Studies - Mesa Community College
Married, 3 children & 3 grand children

In January 2024, God placed a desire on my heart to run for this race to help ensure future Safe & Secure Elections.

Arizona deserves elections that follow the law.

The integrity & reputation of the Recorder’s Office will rest squarely on the integrity of the next County Recorder.

The existing Recorder should not use his office to gain favor with voters only before a re-election bid.

Anyone who claims the election of 2020 “Was the most perfect election ever” is being disingenuous at best or simply not telling the truth.
