Hello, my name is Anthony Kern. As a conservative freshman serving in the Arizona House of Representatives I strongly believe in our Constitution and the principles and ideas which make us great. Ideas such as limited government, states rights, private property, the right to keep and bear arms, tax reform, fiscal responsibility and the pursuit of life and liberty. I have worked hard to defend and advance these principles in the Arizona Legislature and will continue to do so in the future. I ask for your vote and support in the 2016 election. I am humbled and honored to represent you and look forward to working together to ensure our best days are ahead.Anthony Kern was first elected to the State House of Representatives in November of 2014.
