Paul Gosar is a dentist and small business owner. After receiving his D.D.S from Creighton Boyne School of Dentistry, he went on to open his own dentistry practice which he has owned for 25 years. He has been a resident of rural Arizona for nearly 27 years. As a small business owner, Paul knows what it takes to keep the engine of America’s economy – small businesses – running. As a dentist, he knows that everybody’s healthcare needs are different and only competition in the market will lead to quality care.
After witnessing Arizona middle-class families and small businesses suffer under Washington Democrats’ job-killing and burdensome agenda, Paul decided it was time to step in and fight for change. He beat incumbent liberal Democrat Anne Kirkpatrick in 2010 and was sworn into office in January 2011. He is now considered one of the most successful freshman members of Congress because of all of his legislative accomplishments. Determined to stand up for Arizona families, he will continue to offer commonsense solutions and fight against Democrat partisan ideologies. Paul knows that Arizona families want more freedom and less government.
Not only is Paul connected to the community through his 25 years as a neighborhood dentist, but he also remains active through coaching Little League and serving on community committees, such as the Flagstaff Citizens for Fluoride Initiative.
Paul is devout family man and shares the same values, ideologies and the needs of Arizona families. He and his wife Maude have been married almost 24 years and have three children.
With unwavering determination, Paul will continue to work to get Arizona’s economy back and track and to get people working again. His major jobs bill, H.R. 1904, passed the House and is still waiting adoption by the Senate. If it becomes law, Congressman Gosar will have helped to create 3,000 jobs in Arizona and over $1 billion in economic activity per year.
