Rep. Juan Ciscomani

United States Congressman, Arizona’s 6 th District

Congressman Juan Ciscomani represents Arizona’s 6th Congressional District in the United
States House of Representatives. Juan and his family immigrated to the United States when he
was a young boy. They established roots in Tucson, Arizona, where his father worked as a bus driver to give his children a shot at the American Dream. Growing up in a working class family taught Juan the value of hard work and the importance of a can-do attitude. Juan attended public schools in Tucson, Pima Community College and the University of Arizona. He worked his way through school with maintenance and service jobs until becoming the first in his family to graduate from college. After college, Juan worked for the University of Arizona and the Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce before joining Arizona Governor Doug Ducey’s administration
as Senior Advisor and Vice-Chair of the Arizona-Mexico Commission. Juan focused on the issues of international trade and diplomacy, border security, and economic development. In 2022, Juan was elected to represent Arizona’s new 6th congressional district, becoming the first naturalized
American citizen from Mexico elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in Arizona history. Juan was appointed to serve on the House Appropriations Committee and House Veterans Affairs Committee. Juan resides in Tucson with his wife, Laura, and their 6 kids — Zoe, Juan
David, Kenny, Lily, Lucas, and Gloria.
