Serving the State of Arizona
Transforming the Department of State
Reagan's work to transform the Department of State has improved public access to everything from political contributions to genealogical records.
Her efforts have earned her a leading role on the National Election Cybersecurity Task Force as a member of the Association of Secretaries of State as well as the Executive Board of the Lieutenant Governor’s Association.
During her time as an elected official Michele has helped lead Arizona out of economic recession, balance the budget, and is proud to have helped create a $379 million surplus at the end of 2012.
Reagan’s fiscal conservatism and pro-business policies gained recognition from the National Federation of Independent Business when she was named a “Small Business Guardian” and received the “Eye of the Eagle” award from the Arizona Small Business Association.
Her commitment to job creation and reducing the tax burden has been recognized by both the Arizona and Greater Phoenix Chambers of Commerce with their consistent endorsements during her time as a legislator and senator.
Prior to her outstanding success as a legislator, Michele got her start as the owner of FASTSIGNS in Phoenix shortly after moving to Arizona in 1991.
She is originally from Illinois where she grew up in the Chicagoland area and graduated from Illinois State University.
Michele is married, a proud step-mother, and has three beautiful dogs and a tortoise. She currently resides in Scottsdale.
