Adrian is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, having served on active duty from 1992 to 1996, and was nominated for a meritorious commission.
His service to our country taught him the importance of dedication, discipline, and sacrifice to forcefully fight for the American dream. After leaving active duty, Adrian received his Bachelor’s degree from Arizona State University before continuing on to the Sturm College of Law at the University of Denver.
Since graduating from law school, Adrian has spent his career advocating for justice and fighting for those who are disadvantaged — first as a prosecutor with the Denver District Attorney and then for the Maricopa County Attorney’s office and the Arizona Attorney General’s office before entering private practice.
As County Recorder, he has worked to bring a renewed energy and vision to the office, with the goal of rebuilding public trust in the election system in Maricopa County. He has focused on the voters’ experience, accountability, and security. Adrian will continue to work to make sure that every Maricopa County citizen who is eligible to vote is able to vote, whether at their kitchen table completing their early ballot or at the booth on Election Day — and that all of their ballots are counted.

We invite you to join the new Yavapai County Democratic Party Circle of Friends!
Always looking ahead, we are already planning for 2022.
Leadership is what we do. Yavapai County is in two Congressional Districts, 1 and 4 and in two Legislative Districts, 4 and 6. Leaders in rural Northern Arizona, John Lutes, our County Chair is a voice to be reckoned with at the state level, and two of our Executive Board members are currently Arizona Democratic Party Vice Chairpersons.
We secured a second Democratic seat in the US Senate! Our efforts to energize voters over the past three years have paid big dividends. YavDems stepped up and took leadership roles during the 2020 campaigns. Despite pandemic restrictions, you called, wrote letters and postcards and took on the hard work for Mission for AZ and all our candidates. We ran our CD and LD campaigns following federal health guidelines for social distancing.
We are there for you! Even in this more online world, we have to maintain our office space as a communications hub and distribution point for campaign materials and signs. During this difficult pandemic year, many of you enjoyed connecting with other Democrats during our campaign-sign distribution events at the office. With the continuing success of the Biden/Harris vaccination rollout, we look forward to regular reopening while we continue to actively communicate and organize.
But we need your help now!
