Steve Weichert was elected Chair of LD 17 Democrats in November 2020. After running his own hard fought campaign for the Arizona State Senate in 2018, Steve shifted his focus and worked as the campaign manager for Jennifer Pawlik and AJ Kurdoglu in the 2020 campaign cycle. Steve’s proven leadership abilities and experience as a PC in the Lantana Canyon precinct will be crucial as we head into the 2022 election cycle and the pending redistricting process. Born and raised in San Jose, California, Steve has called Chandler home since 2003. His passion for serving his community and improving educational opportunities in Arizona is only surpassed by a commitment to be a model husband to Maria and father to his two daughters. In his spare time, Steve and his family love spending time with extended family and friends, making music, volunteering in the community, and experiencing all the beauty that is Arizona.
