Talia Fuentes is an applied biologist with years of experience in the educational and scientific community—and with deep roots in our state. A 3rd generation Arizonan, Talia was raised in her District by a bipartisan family. Talia’s travels all over the world, working on issues affecting wildlife and the environment, have taught her the value of the scientific method in enriching our experiences and enabling us to understand each other and our world. Talia is the proud single mom of a ten year old son, Max, and a dog named Monkey.
District 5 is a predominately suburban district with some of the fastest growing cities and towns in Arizona. The district curves through Phoenix’s East Valley suburbs and includes all of Gilbert, most of Mesa and the south east half of Chandler—as well as parts of Apache Junction and Queen Creek. District 5 is a conservative stronghold and has been represented by Republicans for decades—and never by a woman. But with its ongoing growth and development, as well as a rising number of Latinos, progressives have an opportunity to start impacting local elections.

“I'm endorsing Talia Fuentes. As an applied biologist who brings facts and evidence to public policy, she'll do an excellent job representing CD5--and will stand with the secular community.”— James Woods
