Senator  Justine  Wadsack was elected to the  Arizona  State  Senate in  2022.  She  is  the  
Co-Chairman  of  the  Education  Committee,  and  also  serves  on  the  Government,  Judicial  
and Health & Human Services Committees.

Justine has called Pima County home for over 40 years, with time spent living in Tucson and its downtown, Catalina Foothills, Rita Ranch, University of Arizona, Gates Pass, and Marana. She’s had a lifetime of experience in Southern Arizona, being enriched by its close-knit, kind, and generous sense of community. And as a fourth-generation realtor, she has personally assisted hundreds of families in their move to Pinal County and their achievement of the American dream of home ownership.

In 2011 Justine married her husband Garret, a retired major with twenty-two years in the United States Armed Forces. Together, they’re raising a beautiful blended family, including four children who have gone on to enlist like their father and two children with special needs.

Motherhood has motivated Justine’s crusade in Pinal County on issues as expansive as education to healthcare. In a system that’s been designed to benefit itself, children with disabilities and their parents need an advocate that prioritize their rights and interests. In 2018, in defense of her own daughter’s safety and dignity, Justine challenged both state and federal agencies and won.

A self-described “citizen legislator,” Justine used her first-term as an instrument of her constituents, seeking their input on legislation and writing bills reflecting their concerns. She set a new record as a freshman legislator for the most sponsored bills passed out of the Arizona Senate.

She was honored as “Freshman Senator of the Year” by the Arizona Republican Party and recognized as “Elected Official of the Year 2023” by the Arizona Coalition of School Boards.

Justine Wadsack is incredibly proud to serve the people of Arizona and to represent her neighbors in LD17.

Past achievements include:
•  Helped more than 3,000 Nurses, Doctors, Therapists, Raytheon Federal Contractors, Police, Sheriff 
Deputies, Firefighters and Teachers keep their jobs through Religious Exemptions.
•  Helped Covid-19 patients and their families learn their rights against hospital protocols so 
they could fight against forced ventilators, Remdesivir, and other hospital polices.
•  Held seminars teaching parents about their rights under ARS 1-601 & ARS 1-602.
•  Sued State Agencies DES/DDD/DCS and won.
•  Advocated  for  Parents  of  Special  Needs  children  in  IEP  meetings  at  TUSD  &  Dist.  16 
to ensure they received their rights under IDEA, FAPE and State Law.
•  Stopped Comprehensive Sex Ed (CSE) at the Dept. of Education in 2019.
•  Helped  parents  hold  the  Vail  School  Board  (and  others)  accountable  during  the COVID-19 Mask Mandates, which in turn, taught parents how to get involved in their children’s education.
