Michael is a natural leader and strives to be one within the community to ensure all parties can be fairly heard while exercising their constitutional rights. Attorney Irish is an experienced legal decisionmaker in addition to being able to understand the arguments of each side in a neutral and unbiased manner.
Having always lived in Moon Valley, Michael enjoys spending time outside in the "warm" Arizona weather, collegiate and professional sports, cooking, humor, saltwater reef tanks, traveling, and spending time with his German Shepherd Jäger. Running this campaign has also been an absolute blast! Mr. Irish is, and always has been, a proud member of the Republican Party.
A vote for Irish isn’t just good luck, it’s the smart move!
