Steve Gaynor is a successful businessman – that’s why he knows how to get things done. He’s a political outsider who shares our concerns that America and Arizona are at critical crossroads and facing enormous challenges.
Steve was born in New York; Dorothy grew up in Tucson. They met at Harvard Business School. After graduation, Dorothy convinced Steve to move with her back to Arizona. Together they built a wonderful life here, raising three children who all graduated from Arizona State University. Over the years they built several successful businesses, including a small commercial printing business which grew into one of the leading printers in the Southwest, creating hundreds of jobs in the process.
In 2018, Steve became the Republican nominee for Arizona Secretary of State. His focus was election integrity – a subject which has since emerged as key issue in our state and our nation. In 2019, Steve again demonstrated his political foresight by founding Fair Maps Arizona, a non-profit organization focused on redistricting. Just as he has done in business, when he sees a problem in politics, he doesn’t just talk about it, he takes decisive action and gets to work solving the problem.
Steve is running for Governor to solve the tough issues facing Arizona and to fight back against the overreach of the Biden Administration. He believes that we need to protect the rule of law and adhere to the Constitution, the bedrock of our society and our way of life. He is a life member of the National Rifle Association and the Arizona Citizens Defense League. He loves Arizona and wants to preserve the freedom and quality of life that is Arizona’s birthright.
In his free time, Steve enjoys working on cars with his two sons, discussing constitutional law with his daughter, and traveling with his wife Dorothy. Steve also has a green thumb. He grows some of the best peaches and figs you’ve ever tasted.
