Patrick Morales, House District 26
Patrick Morales served on the Tempe Elementary Governing Board for the last five years and fought to increase equity in public schools so every child, teacher, and employee can succeed. Patrick was raised by educators. He understands how education and equity are of critical importance to the future of Arizona.
In his own words:
My mom immigrated here from Mexico and has worked as an English teacher for several years. She earned her bachelor’s degree when I was ten years old. I saw first-hand how education was the key to the American dream she had always hoped to have. It was because of her hard work that I have committed my life to ensure everyone has access to public education and that equity thrives in our communities every day.
