Meet Mike

My name is Michael "Mike" Cruz and I am an Arizona native, and proud Hispanic Republican. I graduated from Arizona State University with my Bachelor's degree in business and hold an MBA in Human Resources. My entire career has been focused on providing strong leadership and serving people to help achieve a common goal. 

I have a dynamic professional background which includes seven years of experience as a tax professional and four years as a public school teacher and administrator. I plan to bring an inclusive leadership style that will capture your voice and help drive our county forward. 

As a proud resident of Pinal County, I currently reside in Maricopa, AZ with my beautiful wife Felicia, and our charming Boxer, Iota. In my free time, I serve as a worship leader for Emanuel Baptist Church in Casa Grande. I am also an active member of the Salvation Army's advisory board where I provide leadership and guidance to support the values and mission of the Casa Grande Corp. As a firm believer that education changes lives, I am the Secretary for Support Our Students, a non-profit organization focused on providing students and families financial assistance to help children succeed in and out of the classroom. Outside of volunteering, you will find my wife and I traveling, reading, watching movies, hiking, spending time with our relatives, and target shooting.
