About Jennifer Pawlik
I am Jennifer Pawlik, your Arizona State Representative in Legislative District 13 (previously LD17) which includes parts of Chandler, Gilbert and all of Sun Lakes.
I’m a native Arizonan, who’s proud to have grown-up, worked and raised a family in our beautiful State. I’ve been a teacher in the classroom for over 20 years, but felt I could make a difference by running for office.
Elected in 2018 as the first Democrat and the first woman to represent our District, I enjoy being the voice for all of LD13’s constituents. I love to hear your concerns, whether you are down at the Capitol or out in the neighborhood.
I’m a passionate advocate for public education, protecting voter rights and our environment, especially our water. My other priorities include preventing gun violence, encouraging workforce development and the creation of jobs.
I attended Arizona schools from kindergarten through college. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Northern Arizona University, and then earned a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I have taught for over 20 years, nine of which were in the Chandler Unified School District. I now teach undergraduate students in the College of Education at Northern Arizona University, Chandler-Gilbert Community College campus.
I am an active member of the Democratic caucus, the Latino caucus, the Community and Legislative Partners in Aging forum, and I served on the Joint Legislative Dyslexia Study Group. on the House Education Committee, I am the Ranking Member and I’m also a member of the House Judiciary Committee.
When I am not engaged in legislative, education, and community activities, I enjoy spending time with my husband of 25 years, Jason Pawlik, and my adult twin daughters. We have loved living, working, and playing in Chandler for 13 years, and we look forward to many more!
