State Rep. Eric Meyer

Representative Eric Meyer is a medical physician and represents district 28 in the Arizona state legislature, and completed two four year terms on the Scottsdale School District Governing Board. Rep. Meyer believes strong public schools are the bedrock of Arizona’s future. As a former school board member for 8 years, he gained intimate knowledge of our school’s needs, and has vigorously worked both as a parent and elected official to ensure our schools and teachers remain a priority in the state legislature. He has improved academic achievement and rigor district-wide, increased graduation requirements and expanded class offerings. Dr. Meyer is committed to continuing his objective of ensuring every student is prepared for success from the early formative years, to college, and thereafter. Dr. Meyer’s unique background in economics and medicine has given him an insight and ability to understand and address the growing problems of access to quality, affordable health care, especially for our children, and to identify ways to work for solutions in strengthening our state economy. Besides his two children, Rep. Meyer’s proudest achievement was serving on the Scottsdale School Board. Dr. Meyer is the ranking democrat on the Appropriations committee, and a member on the Health Committee.
