Ripon Profile of Jeff Flake

By on September 22, 2016

ripon-profile-of-jeff-flakeName: Jeff Flake

Occupation: U.S. Senator from the State of Arizona

First job held & lesson that you learned from it: Milking cows. I learned I didn’t want to milk cows for the rest of my life.

Proudest achievement since your election to the Senate in 2012: Playing a role in restoring diplomatic relations with Cuba after 54 years of isolation.

Challenge facing the people of Arizona that you’re working hard to address: Making sure that Arizona’s rights regarding Colorado River water are respected.

Finish this sentence: “If I could change one thing about American politics, it would be…” That we could treat those across the political aisle as often wrong but rarely evil.
