About Ken Clark
As a real estate agent with a passion for historic properties in Central Phoenix, Ken Clark has long been an advocate for all things Phoenician.
For almost five years, Ken has hosted a popular monthly event called Get Your PHX, which brings people together in support of new Phoenix businesses and the owners who risk so much to start them. Ken is a member of Local First AZ as well as a member of the Grand Avenue Rail Project Board.
From 2002-04, Ken Clark served District 15 in the State House, during which time he was chosen by the Democratic Leadership Council as one of the “100 to Watch.” Rather than seek reelection, he spent the following few years growing his business and becoming a leader of distinction on key issues in Arizona.
Ken served as the state Energy Office Director after completing his term at the legislature, then went on to form the Arizona Clean Power Alliance, which advocated for and ensured the passage of legislation that made major renewable energy projects possible in Arizona.
In the legislature, Ken fought the payday loan industry. He continued that fight outside of office in 2008 as the manager of the successful effort to defeat a payday loan industry ballot initiative.
In the 1990's, Ken worked for various non-profit organizations in Phoenix and Washington. He spent two years in Bosnia production talk radio shows based on conflict resolution techniques.
Ken is returning to the legislature because he believes in what Arizona stands for: natural beauty, independence and creativity. He knows that District 24 needs a legislator with actual experience "in the trenches" of public policy, yet who is grounded in life in Central Phoenix.
He knows how to reform our education system so that students are ready for a new set of economic realities.
He believes that we need to live sustainability in the desert southwest and he knows what it will take to make that a reality.
He believes that our tax structure is a drain on our economy and he knows how to reform our tax code to support positive economic growth.
