Joseph Chaplik wants to keep taxes low and the economy strong, limit government, and stop illegal immigration to keep Arizona a prosperous place to live. He supports educational freedom and open enrollment with parents deciding on what's best for their child. He had a successful business career in telecommunications and now leads a commercial real estate company across three states. His company has received several awards including the INC 5000 Fastest Growing Private Company, Corporate Philanthropy Annual Award, and Business Ethics Finalist Award.
