Biographical Info:

Representative Quang Nguyen’s journey from a Vietnamese refugee to a dedicated public servant embodies the American Dream. Despite early challenges and doubts about his future, he taught himself English, worked tirelessly to support his education, and eventually graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Industrial Education while working full-time. After successful careers in the aerospace industry and entrepreneurship, he now proudly serves as the AZ House Legislator for Legislative District 1, advocating for conservative values and ensuring the preservation of freedoms for future generations.

Quang is currently serving as the House Judiciary Committee Chairman.

Statement:

I wanted to make a difference in my community and I couldn’t think of a more effective way to do so than being at the legislature. Public safety and protecting children, including the unborn, are my top priorities. There are many other equally important issues such as, border security, providing resources for law enforcement, providing a voice for parental rights and school choice, cutting taxes, creating legislation to protect religious freedom, and of course, protecting our Arizona and U.S. Constitutions.

Endorsements:

AZ Chamber of Commerce, Arizona Police Association, Greater Phoenix Chamber, Arizona Troopers Association
