Biographical Info:

I am Blaine C Griffin, a proud American, father, husband, Christian conservative. I have been a successful businessman in Arizona for more than 30 years. I have coached Pop Warner football for 24 years. I am the father of eight children, seven grandchildren. I Am pro Second Amendment, I am pro-life, freedom lover and constitutional loyalist. I retired from the state of Arizona (DBME) and was a licensed realtor in the state of Arizona. I am a Cancer surviving fighter which God has declared Won! Once I have achieved many of my life’s pursuits, I asked God what’s next? He replied, try to live your life as Christ did and positively contribute to society.

Statement:

Arizona has provided myself and my family with many opportunities. I have nothing but the utmost respect and gratitude for the state for allowing me to be an intricate part of my community. I thank each and every one of my constituents for those opportunities. Arizona has been just amazing in my humble opinion as one of the greatest States to reside in, it’s probably the greatest States in our country, and for that I am truly blessed to live here. Now, I’m seeking an opportunity to represent the people, my constituents, with responsible and accountable representation which I feel is lacking with some of today’s politicians. Full disclosures; I’m not a politician and I don’t think I would rather be, I am a businessman and I believe that Arizona needs businessmen to handle and take care of the business of Arizonians. I vow that I will make no decisions and no laws that will interfere with the 4F’s in which I stand by and those are; my faith, my family, my freedoms and my ability to be fiscally responsible. This is what I will bring to the table as representative of District 22. Let’s Make Arizona Great Again!
