Meet Bobby Tyler
I am Bobby Tyler, the current Mayor of Holbrook, and a third-generation Arizonan from McNary, Arizona. I am running to be representative for Legislative District 6 to create a prosperous future for generations to come. After years of the status quo, I am committed to fighting for rural and Northern Arizona at the legislature in Phoenix. Economic development is how we are going to bring good paying jobs, and a world-class public education system to northern Arizona!
I am a third generation Arizonan, and a product of the northern Arizona public school system. My family moved from Louisiana to McNary, Arizona to work in the lumber industry for better opportunities and higher wages, something I want to bring back to northern Arizona.
I have lived a life of public service. Right out of high school I went to work for the city of Holbrook as a truck driver. I went on to work in the maintenance department first as a maintenance helper and then in operations as a fuel handler. A few years later I was awarded a Machinist apprenticeship, another funding I want to save. I volunteered as a firefighter and a citizens police officer for a combined thirteen years with the city of Holbrook. I then spent over 33 years working in the power industry where I learned and worked many positions and assignments, including safety officer ensuring those around me were working in a safe environment. I trained firefighters in the safety of fire behavior and power plant mechanics in fundamentals of the trade. I have been a member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers 387 Union steward as well as 1607 Millright carpenters union. Since then, I have been on Holbrook City Council since 2011 and as Mayor of Holbrook since 2015.
I am running to be the voice that the State leaders have forgotten. A voice for the struggling young families trying to make ends meets The people struggling to find a job with benefits and a fair wage. This is how a strong economy is made and maintained.
