Meet Analise Ortiz, Candidate fo the Arizona House of Representatives

Meet Rep. Ortiz

I'm Rep. Analise Ortiz. I'm honored to go to to work for you every day as your state representative. 

Growing up in Arizona, I recognized that many state leaders were not looking out for us. Our public school teachers had to dig into their own pockets to buy school supplies. Sheriff Joe Arpaio was tearing apart families with cruel, racist policies. Families were working multiple jobs just to make ends meet.

Relying on student loans, scholarships, and public transportation, I attended Arizona State University and graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and Mass Communications. As a journalist, I uncovered injustice happening in my community and I knew I could no longer just report on the issues–I had to start working to change them.

I went on to become a campaign strategist for the ACLU and the ACLU of Arizona where I worked on federal immigration reform and statewide criminal justice reform.

The people of Maryvale and Glendale elected me to the Arizona House of Representatives in Nov. 2022. I currently serve as the ranking Democrat of the House Judiciary Committee and I sit on the Commerce Committee. In 2023, I sponsored several bills to address the high cost of rent, including a bill that would cap rent increases. Along with other Democrats, I co-sponsored a bill that would provide free school breakfast and lunch for our kids. I also co-sponsored a bill that would provide paid family and medical leave for all Arizona workers. I am fighting for this legislation to move through the process. You can see every bill I've sponsored or co-sponsored here. 

As your State Representative, I work for you. I’d like to know: what questions do you have about the legislative process? Are there any issues you care about most that you’d like me to fight for? 

Please let me know by calling 602-842-2407 or emailing me at

You have my commitment that I will always explain my votes, listen to your concerns, and advocate for the best interests of Maryvale and Glendale.


The Issues

I will work to fully invest in K-12 public education, increase teacher and support staff pay, reduce classroom size, reduce the student-to-counselor ratio, and restore funding to Maricopa and Pima community colleges.

Invest in education

Make housing affordable

I will advocate to strengthen tenants’ rights, limit how much landlords and investors can raise rent, invest in rental assistance and first-time homebuyer programs, and work with city leaders to push forward creative land-use solutions to provide more single-family and multi-family housing options.


Childcare and healthcare

I will advocate for more childcare subsidies for low-income families, to raise the eligibility income requirement for state assistance with childcare and healthcare, to provide more funding to grandparents raising their grandchildren, and to expand dental benefits through AHCCCS.


Protect civil rights

I will work to defeat voter suppression laws, defend LGBTQ+ Arizonans, protect access to reproductive healthcare, address racial inequality, advocate for the rights of immigrants, and work to hold law enforcement accountable for racial profiling or violence against people of color.

I will support small business owners, protect workers’ rights to organize in the workplace, advocate for paid leave for all, support workforce development programs, and create more clean energy and water conservation jobs.
