Bobby Tyler Interview – July 23, 2018

Fighting for Rural Arizona. The co-hosts of Democratic Perspective welcome Bobby Tyler, Mayor of Holbrook, AZ and candidate for LD6 State Representative. A longtime volunteer and public servant with a career as a machinist for APS, Tyler was elected the first black mayor in the state of Arizona. Now he wants to use his ability to pull people together for the people of northern Arizona. Noting that the current office holders represent an ideology rather than their constituents, Tyler says, “It’s difficult when you see that they are not doing the best for everyone involved.” In stark contrast to his opponents, Tyler wants to serve the people of rural Arizona by helping create jobs, providing access to more affordable healthcare, protecting the environment, properly funding education and ending homelessness. “I want to pull off my power plant and work experience,” he says. “You have all those people working together. You have to have a common good and a common goal.”
