Meet Andrés Cano
Andrés Cano, a Democrat, represents Legislative District 3 in the Arizona House of Representatives.
Raised by a single mom, Andrés saw a path for advancement in Arizona’s public schools, becoming the first in his family to graduate from college. He has spent the last 10 years working to advance equity, fairness, and opportunity for Southern Arizonans from all walks of life.
Andrés, a sixth generation Arizonan, vowed to serve his community as a young child after witnessing his grandmother succumb to an occupational lung disease. Andrés got his first summer job with Pima County at age 14. Six years later, he returned from college to serve as an aide to Pima County Supervisor Richard Elías, becoming the youngest policy advisor in County government.
Andrés became the first Latino, and the youngest, award recipient of the Center for the Future of Arizona, when they named him as their 2016 Emerging Leader. The award is given to a public servant who has the potential to have an impact on Arizona's future for generations to come.
