Biographical Info:

I grew up in Norwalk, CA on a small farm in the middle of the city. I attended and graduated from Cypress College and California State University Fullerton. While in college I worked as an intern for the State Police on campus. I served as a Community Service Officer with the University Police.

I was recruited by the
Mesa Police Department, and moved to Mesa, AZ in 1992. I bought a house a half mile from Police Headquarters, and the Central Substation, so I could walk to work. Living in the neighborhood I served made me responsive and connected to the neighborhood in a special way. I served our community for 27 years and retired as a Police Sergeant in 2018. I am now running a small business, Little American Tractor Service.

Statement:

As a retired Mesa Police Sergeant who served and protected our community for 27 years, you can be confident I will continue fighting to protect our freedoms. I am a Christian, America-first conservative who believes in freedom, personal responsibility, limited government, and lower taxes. I have been married to my wife, Heather, for 22 years and we have raised two daughters.
My opponent, our current Senator, recently tried to convince me that the platform of the Republican Party is to protect business’ rights above the rights of individuals. I believe the rights of individuals are sacred, including those of the unborn. I expected better from my Republican elected representative. WE DESERVE BETTER! Please vote ROBERT SCANTLEBURY for Arizona State Senate, a REAL conservative.
