Anna Tovar

Arizona Corporate Commission

Anna Tovar and her husband have been married for over 20 years and have two wonderful sons. She is a proud Arizona native and has served her community as a teacher, mentor and elected official. Anna was a school teacher for five years, served on the Tolleson City Council for over seven years, and was Vice Mayor for two years until she was elected to the Arizona House of Representatives. In 2013, she won election to the State Senate. As a State Legislator, Anna earned a reputation as a leader who fought for the dignity of all people. In 2011, she championed the effort to restore funding for nearly 100 patients on the transplant list, saving many lives. In 2016, Anna was the first woman elected to be Tolleson’s Mayor where she continued delivering results to make people’s lives better. The one question Anna always asked herself before making any decision is this: will it be good for my residents and the long-term future of our community? The answer to that question is why she ran for the Arizona Corporation Commission – to restore transparency and integrity to the Corporation Commission. She was elected in November 2020 and was the first Democratic Latina elected to a statewide office in Arizona.
