I am Josh Barnett and I am running to represent the people of Arizona Congressional District 6. As a business owner and family man, I have witnessed the corruption and disregard for our Constitution that is eroding liberty in our country.

Instead of doing what is right, politicians are pushing legislation and bad ideas in order to advance themselves or their political party without regard for the people. I am a loyal American who loves God, my country and my family.

I believe that all people are created equal, and that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, and that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. ​I am committed to always put people over politics.
