Conservative Businessman David Stringer Announces Candidacy for LD1 State Representative
Conservative Prescott businessman David Stringer today announced his candidacy for the State House of Representatives for Legislative District 1.
Stringer has owned and operated the Comfort Inn on White Spar Road in Prescott since 2004, and he has been active in local civic and political affairs as a Republican Precinct Committeeman and State Committeeman for the Yavapai County Republican Party. He currently serves as co-chairman of the Yavapai County Republican Party Finance Committee.
In announcing his candidacy, Stringer promised to protect the taxpayers and families of the district, provide an effective voice for a district that largely consists of Yavapai County and the Anthem community in Maricopa County, defend the Arizona and U.S. Constitutions, and work to enhance Arizona’s economy, with special emphasis on rural counties. His legislative priorities include increased employment, fighting illegal immigration, expanded school choice, state pension reform, improved transportation infrastructure, and a balanced approach to economic development that protects rural Arizona’s lands and quality of life.
“With the sheer number of Maricopa County legislators already in the Arizona Legislature, districts like ours need Representatives who can work together to be effective in terms of generating real results.” said Stringer.
Stringer earned his reputation as a taxpayer advocate when, as General Counsel for the Citizen’s Tax Committee, he helped spearhead the campaign that defeated the 2013 PUSD school bond and budget override. He also founded the Yavapai County Tax Committee, helped organize the campaign to defeat the jail district sales tax in 2014, and served as the public spokesman for the campaign opposing higher city sales taxes to fund the state’s troubled public safety pension system.
Noting that it is not enough to merely say “No” to ideas, Stringer also pointed out that while he had successfully defeated untimely measures, he also supported a recent PUSD budget override that was responsible and good for local education.
Stringer is a member of the Arizona Bar Association, the Yavapai County Bar Association, the Goldwater Institute, and the Federalist Society. He resides in the Historic District of downtown Prescott. He is the former President of the Prescott Area Lodging Association and has served on the Mayor’s Tourism Advisory Committee. He was a founding Board Member of the Prescott Area Women’s Shelter and has served on the Board of Yavapai Big Brothers and Big Sisters. He currently serves on the Board of Trustees of the Sharlot Hall Museum and Prescott Historical Society. For the past two years he has served as a Commissioner on the Prescott Planning and Zoning Commission.
He is a graduate of George Washington University and the University of Baltimore School of Law. He is also currently enrolled in a graduate program at ASU, working to earn a Masters Degree in Teaching English as a Second Language.
The campaign is pleased to welcome Sharon Walter as Campaign Manager, John Stevens as Treasurer, and Matthew Perry as Communications Director.
