Senator Brophy McGee is a third-generation Arizonan, born into a ranching family and raised in southern Arizona.

All three of their sons attended Phoenix public schools and graduated from Sunnyslope High School. The oldest son is a graduate of the University of Arizona Law School and is an attorney in Phoenix. The middle son is a graduate student at Northern Arizona University. Her youngest son is a graduate student at Arizona State University.
Legislative District 28 Constituents Share Their Thoughts
Honorable Sasha Glassman
The Madison Elementary School Board has enjoyed a close relationship with Rep. Kate Brophy McGee. She has gone above and beyond as a legislator to support school leaders and Madison students. She has been a strong advocate on behalf of Madison schools. As a pro-education Republican, she’s gone to bat for us and stood up to leadership and members of her party. I strongly support her election to the Arizona Senate (Legislative District 28), where she will continue to get things done for our students!
Carol Poore, Constituent
Kate’s collaborative and thorough approach to understanding Arizona’s critical issues, seeking constituent input, and shaping public policy has provided Arizona with solid leadership in major issues such as health care, quality of education, and strengthening our economy.
Bill Adams, Washington Elementary School Board Member
When Kate and I worked together on the Washington School Board, her number one priority was always the children. She never let politics get in the way of sound policy. I commend her for that and support her for State Senate in Legislative District 28.
Jayne Baker, Constituent
A woman with the heart for advocacy for the lost, the least and the less. I totally support Kate.
Susan Hunter, Constituent
Thank you so much, Kate, for standing up for Arizona’s children of the working-class poor. It was a national embarrassment, not to mention penalizing the struggling single mothers, not to have KidsCare and you got it through a recalcitrant legislature. I am so grateful!
Steve Watson, Maricopa County Superintendent
“As an Arizona native, educator, and school advocate, I’m proud to endorse Kate Brophy McGee for State Senate. I attended Arizona public schools for grade school, high school, and college so public education has served an important role in my life. Kate is committed to providing a quality education for every Arizonan. This year, she sponsored the bipartisan Prop 301 extension, allowing schools like Madison elementary to invest additional classroom dollars this year. As someone who works in public education and a public school parent, I know we need Kate in the legislature. I hope you’ll join me in voting for Kate this November.”
Stephanie Brown, Parent Leader in Paradise Valley Unified School District
I am pleased to endorse and support Kate Brophy McGee for Senate. Legislative District 28 has had outstanding representation for our most important issue – education. What matters most is effectiveness, and Kate is that effective leader we need in the Senate. She has a great track record of accomplishments for her time in the House, and we can expect more of the same in the Senate.
