Meet Jeff Zink
Candidate for Arizona’s 7th U.S. Congressessional District
Congressman candidate Jeff Zink will represent Arizona’s 7th Congressional District. He lives with his wife of 9 years along with their fur baby Tyson in South Mountain. Stephanie and Jeff met later in life and are happily married. Jeff was raised in Phillips, Texas, which is in the Texas Panhandle. Jeff played 3 sports in high school then went on to Panhandle State University where he played football for one year and was on the National playoff team. He then transferred to Texas Tech where he played football for two years before fracturing his neck. He transferred again and received his bachelor's degree in Kinesiology from Midwestern State University and his MSS degree in Sports Medicine from the United States Sports Academy. This led to a career in collegiate and professional teams taking care of sports related injuries.
Jeff owned Mobile Testing Service which tested workers comp patients so they could return to work after being injured. While taking care of his parents, he started officiating high school and collegiate sports. As is the case with many people, Jeff became the primary caretaker for his elderly parents. While seeing to his parents’ medical needs, he learned firsthand the changes needed to our healthcare systems. Upon the passing of both parents, Jeff moved to Arizona to pursue a new chapter in life.
Once settling in Phoenix, he became a Scuba Diving Instructor and worked as a Strength and Conditioning Specialist with local athletes. Jeff continued his occupation in sports officiating while working as a curriculum developer and adjunct professor for Grand Canyon University and the Maricopa County Community College system. If there was a time during the day, it needed to be filled with productive activities. Throughout all his pursuits, he has believed in working hard and playing even harder.
Jeff was forced into early retirement due to an illness which caused him to go on disability and Medicare. Struggling to find out what was wrong, he continued the search to be productive in society. In addition to suffering from daily migraines over the last few years, the search for care has been compounded by the lack of guidance from our current medical industry. Transitioning from employer provided insurance to Medicare, he has a better understanding of the challenges our fellow Arizonans face and the changes that are needed for our healthcare system. Jeff is still struggling to find the root cause of his migraines and strives to be a productive person again. As such, he decided to run for Congress to help fight for Arizonans and their American rights.
Jeff believes in the First Amendment rights of freedom of speech and the ability to worship God, as a former deacon at a local church, he understands the importance to worship without restrictions placed by our government. As a candidate for the Congress, Jeff will work to keep District 7 progressing forward, helping to keep our freedoms and rights given to us by our God and the Constitution. If you don’t know your rights, then you don’t have any.
Jeff believes that your rights are most important, and he wants to reduce the amount of influence that the government has in your daily lives. Closing business and forcing American citizens to wear masks is not what our founding fathers wanted for this country. Government can’t make its citizens do something against their will, being transparent and giving information out to the people and letting them decide what is best for them is the best solution.
Jeff will introduce legislation that will establish basic guidelines for each state to follow to make a transparent election for all 50 states. Making sure that a receipt is given to every person who voted so that they are sure that their vote counted for the persons they voted for. Making voter ID a requirement to vote requires a check to make sure that they have not moved from one state to the other and that they are legal to vote.
