At the age of 29, Nez began his career in public service as the Vice President of the Shonto Chapter on the Navajo Nation.

Passionate about serving his community, he went on to serve on the Navajo Nation Council and the County Board of Supervisors before eventually being elected Vice President of the Navajo Nation in 2015.


In 2019, he was elected President of the Navajo Nation and served until 2023.

As president, he led the Navajo people through the COVID-19 pandemic, secured funds to construct new healthcare facilities and homes for veterans, invested in public safety and hired new police officers, and bolstered infrastructure, improving rural roads and bringing clean water and electricity to thousands of previously unserved residents.

No stranger to the struggles so many in the Second District face, Nez overcame an alcohol addiction as a young man and has seen firsthand how addiction can hurt whole communities.

With the help of his faith and his family, he set his life on a new course and dedicated his career to public service.

Experienced in cultivating relationships with government leaders, Nez is a coalition builder who will bring commonsense problem-solving to Washington, putting the needs of rural Arizonans over DC politics.


In Congress, Nez is committed to reforming government and holding Washington accountable to working Arizonans, creating jobs, cutting high gas and food costs, supporting Arizona veterans, and protecting the right to choose.
