Meet Doug Little
Why Elect Him to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors

Swearing In - Doug Linda.jpeg

I am running for the Board of Supervisors out of a deeply held desire to continue my public service.  As someone who has held statewide office in Arizona, I am no stranger to the challenges faced when it becomes necessary to do things for the good of the citizens of Maricopa County and the State of Arizona.  Too many times in politics, the interests of the people get left behind when politicians serve special interests or make “politically expedient” choices.  Should you decide to elect me to the Board of Supervisors, I will be working for the people of Maricopa County and no one else.


I want to pass on a strong and free Arizona to our children and grandchildren.  If we are to do that, we need better leadership in Maricopa County.  Leadership that sets direction and innovates as opposed to rubber-stamping what unelected staff proposes.  I have lived in Arizona for nearly 24 years and have lived in District 2 the entire time. I know this District and understand its needs like no other candidate.


As your District 2 Supervisor, I will be a voice for fiscal responsibility, lower taxes, and strong economic growth.  I will fight for fair and free elections, secure borders, the right to life, and the Second Amendment.


In this race, I am the only candidate with a proven conservative record.  As an Arizona Corporation Commissioner for 3 years, I worked hard to make sure that all Arizonans had access to clean, reliable, and affordable energy and water.  As an NRA Instructor for nearly 2 decades, I have worked to protect and promote the Second Amendment and taught thousands of people how to be safe and law-abiding firearms owners.


Beginning in October 2017, I accepted an appointment as a Deputy Assistant Secretary for Intergovernmental Affairs at the US Department of Energy.  In this role, I was the principal liaison between the Department and any State, County, and Local government.  I worked with stakeholders all over the nation to advance the cause of reliable and affordable energy by using a balanced portfolio of energy resources. 


During my tenure at DOE, under the leadership of Secretary Rick Perry and the Trump Administration, we were able to achieve not just energy independence, but energy dominance for the United State.  For the first time in nearly 3 decades, the US became a net exporter of oil and natural gas.  We did not have to rely on foreign oil and gas as we do now under the Biden Administration and energy prices were significantly lower across the board.


In the past, I have consistently done good and valuable work on behalf of all Arizonans, and should you decide to elect me to the District 2 Board of Supervisors seat, I will do so again.


Election Integrity

It is vital that we protect the integrity of our elections.  It is the very bedrock on which our republic is based.  In 1787, at the conclusion of the Constitutional Convention, Ben Franklin, when asked whether delegates created a republic or a monarchy, Franklin famously replied, “A republic, if you can keep it”. Democrats are doing everything in their power to try and federalize the election process and turn it to their party’s advantage.  We saw the abuses of the election system in 2020 in many states, including Arizona, using the COVID-19 virus as an excuse.  While we cannot turn back the clock on the 2020 election, we must do everything possible to prevent it from ever happening again.
Doug supports strong election integrity reforms in Maricopa County and in Arizona that will make it easy to vote and harder to cheat.  Voter ID requirements for every ballot cast are nearly universally supported by the American people.  We need to review our current election procedures and implement common-sense reforms to restore confidence in the outcomes of our elections and protect the right of every Arizonan to a free and fair election process.


Across our nation, things have been taught in our school systems that parents were not aware of until virtual learning was implemented due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  When parents became aware of topics like “critical race theory” being taught in schools, they were justifiably upset. 


As your District 2 County Supervisor, Doug will make it his business to understand what is being taught in Maricopa County schools and make sure it aligns with the desires and preferences of parents and what they want their children to learn in school.  That means getting rid of the “progressive programming” in our schools and building a curriculum that focuses on education fundamentals like math, science, English, history, civics, and technology. 


Doug also believes strongly in school choice, so that Arizona families can choose from traditional public schools, public charter schools, public magnet schools, private schools, homeschooling, and online academies.


Doug supports the creation of a “Bill of Rights” for parents and students to help provide open access to quality education, curriculum transparency, and reverse the current trend that places too much control in the hands of public education leaders and teacher’s unions.

Law and Order

In many cities across our nation, crime is through the roof.  Progressive policies to “defund” the police have resulted in a double-digit increase in crime rates and have demoralized law enforcement officers across the nation. 


Doug is a strong supporter of law enforcement.  We must do everything possible to ensure that law enforcement agencies across Arizona have the funding and resources to recruit, train, equip, and support their officers.


As a member of the Board of Supervisors, Doug will work hard to ensure that our Maricopa County District Attorney’s Office and the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office have the resources and support to do the most effective job possible of keeping Maricopa County safe and taking criminals off the streets.

Secure the Border

The current situation at our southern border is completely out of control.  The Biden administration has done virtually nothing to stem the flow of illegal immigrants.  Customs and Border Control agents in July 2021 encountered 212,000 illegals.  The total for 2021 is likely to exceed 1.8 million.  The situation in Arizona is a major threat to public safety.  The county supervisors need to make sure that there is coordination between Customs and Border Patrol and the Maricopa County Sheriff Office along with strong enforcement of immigration laws.  While most of the crossings are in counties like Santa Cruz, Cochise, and Pima Counties, a large majority of illegals end up in Maricopa County where they can find work.  Doug supports finishing the wall, reinstating the “Remain in Mexico” policy, and enforcing E-Verify participation for Maricopa County businesses.

Energy Policy

Doug Little has worked to shape energy policy in Arizona and nationally for nearly a decade.  As a former Arizona Corporation Commissioner, he understands that a balanced energy portfolio is essential to maintain clean, reliable, and affordable energy for all Arizonans.  As a Deputy Assistant Secretary in the US Department of Energy under the Trump Administration, Doug worked hard to help implement common-sense policies that helped protect and strengthen our electric grid as well as policies that promoted the development of oil and natural gas resources, increasing our energy supply.  He worked with a variety of DOE offices supporting the development of fossil fuels, advanced nuclear reactor technologies, and renewable resources like solar and wind.

Economic Development

Prior to his involvement in government, Doug had a 30+ year career in business.  His experience as a senior executive in large computer software companies like Oracle, Micro Focus, and others helped him understand what business needs to grow and thrive.  To attract new businesses to Maricopa County, we need to reduce the regulatory burden, lower taxes, encourage private sector innovation, and expand job opportunities.


In addition, the need for clean, reliable, and affordable energy and water will be a critical component in Maricopa County’s ability to attract and retain businesses that will provide jobs for county residents and contribute to the county’s economic growth.  His professional experience over the past 8 years in energy and water policy has given him strong expertise in these two critical areas.


We also need to implement common-sense solutions to help businesses and workers recover from the horrible COVID lockdowns that have damaged and destroyed many businesses
