InfoJeff Flake is a fifth-generation Arizonan, raised on a ranch in Snowflake, Arizona.

Jeff's career in public affairs led him to the southern African nation of Namibia, where he served as Executive Director of the Foundation for Democracy, which monitored Namibia's democratic process during a time when the nation had its first elections and wrote its constitution. In 1992, Jeff and his family returned to Arizona where he was named Executive Director of the Goldwater Institute. In this role, Jeff worked to promote a conservative philosophy of less government, more freedom, and individual responsibility.

Jeff has represented the Sixth District of Arizona since 2001, serving on the House Committee on Appropriations. The Sixth District includes parts of Mesa and Chandler and all of Gilbert, Queen Creek, and Apache Junction. During his tenure in Congress, Jeff has established a reputation as a leading conservative reformer. Jeff is a graduate of Brigham Young University, where he received a B.A. in International Relations and an M.A. in Political Science. Jeff and his wife, Cheryl, live in Mesa with their children.
