Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S., is serving his fifth term in Congress as the Representative from Arizona’s Fourth Congressional District. First elected in 2010, he came to Congress with no prior political experience. He believes that the Constitution is the cornerstone of our Republic, and always pursues policies that allow for more individual liberty and less government involvement.

Along with Arizona American Legion officers, Yavapai Nation Chairwoman Jane Russell-Winiecki, local city mayors, and presidents of surrounding community associations will be in attendance.
