Bio

Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S., is serving his seventh term in Congress as the Representative from Arizona's Ninth Congressional District. First elected in 2010, he came to Congress with no prior political experience. Paul believes that the Constitution is the cornerstone of our Republic, and always pursues policies that allow for more individual liberty and less government involvement. Dr. Gosar is focused on bringing jobs back to the district, fighting illegal immigration and securing the border, challenging the status quo and holding Washington bureaucrats accountable, cutting wasteful government spending, and ensuring that he is representing the interests of his constituents. He has focused his legislative work on natural resources issues and government accountability. Congressman Gosar serves on the House Committee on Natural Resources where he is the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations and sits on the Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources.
