Nick Pierson Announces his Candidacy for Arizona Congressional District 3
Tucson, AZ — Today, J. Nicolas Pierson announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination to run against Raul Grijalva in Arizona’s Congressional District 3.
Pierson served eight years in the Army Reserves. He has represented Northwestern Mutual and has served as a financial advisor to many people and businesses in the community for over 40 years. He has served on the boards of the “Tucson Hispanic Chamber Educational Foundation, the Changujtos Feos, the University of Arizona College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, and the South Tucson Business Association. He founded Tus Vecinos en el Barrio in the City of South Tucson in 2008, a Hispanic Coalition. He is currently serving on the boards of the American Patriot Memorial and the Fox Tucson Theatre Foundation, where he is Co-Chair of the Programming and Marketing Committee and the main lead on the Fox Tucson Theatre Foundations 2nd annual 2018 Youth Art and Culture Program.
“I have grown up on the border and on Indian Reservations. I know Congressional District 3 and have seen the communities in the district suffering economically and educationally, for many years. The District needs a strong leader to help build a healthy business and community environment to encourage job growth and healthy schools. I founded Tus Vecinos en el Barrio to bring positive change in South Tucson and we must bring that positive change to all the district from Yuma to Nogales.
“I am running for Congress so I can play a much larger role in making our communities better for the citizens in the district. We must have a representative who believes in empowering the people of CD3, rather than growing the government. More government means less money available for our communities,” concluded Pierson.
Pierson was born in Nogales, Arizona and attended public schools in Nogales, Sells and Whiteriver, Arizona. He is a graduate of Alchesay High School and the University of Arizona where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Economics from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Pierson has been married to his wife Marolyn for 46 years; they have three children and five grandchildren.
