Isela Blanc

Arizona State House Representative LD#26

Isela Blanc currently represents District 26 in the Arizona House of Representatives which includes North Tempe, Northwest Mesa, portions of South Phoenix and the Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian Community. At the age of six, Isela's family immigrated to the United States in pursuit of the American dream. Her parents encouraged, promoted, and supported their daughter’s pursuit of higher education. A proud product of the Tempe public school system, she was the first in her family to attend a university. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in Family and Human Development from Arizona State University. Isela became involved in her community as a parent volunteer in her children’s school. Her experience then encouraged her participation with various groups where she acquired the skills and passion to advocate for better schools, youth programs, and equal access to services for those most in need. In 2016, she was elected to serve the community where she was raised. As an elected official, she became the first formerly undocumented woman to serve in the Arizona Legislature. She serves on the Local and International Affairs and the Federalism, Property Rights, and Public Policy committees.
