About Daniel


28387370872_fb32b02712_o.jpgMy name is Daniel Hernandez Jr. and I am your Democratic State Representative covering Southeast Pima County and Santa Cruz County. 

I have been an effective lawmaker fighting for our progressive values. I led the coalition to repeal the anti-LGBTQ "No Promo Homo" law. I also worked to stop guns in our schools. I've held my Republican colleagues to task on anti-woman, anti-worker, and anti-democracy legislation. 

I fought for and was able to secure over $3 million in urgently needed funds to keep the doors open of the Santa Cruz Valley Regional Hospital in Green Valley during the current crisis. I also fought and was able to secure $1 million for the Holy Cross Hospital in Nogales. 

In 2019 I was able to secure $20 million for school counselors and social workers at our public schools. 

I was the Women's Healthcare Champion for 2019 for the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. I was also awarded the Barbara Jordan Progressive Leadership Award for his work in Arizona from the People for the American Way.

I want to continue being your voice at the capitol and hope I can count on your vote to keep up the fight!
