District 9 is predominantly suburban, overlapping Tempe, the Ahwatukee Foothills, and parts of North Phoenix, Mesa, and Chandler. Our district is home to the rapidly growing ‘Silicon Desert’ corridor in Tempe and Chandler, the Biltmore business district, the downtown areas of Tempe, Mesa, and Chandler, and the main campus of America’s largest public research university, Arizona State. This culmination of technology, business, and education makes Arizona’s 9th district a leader in technology, scientific research and innovation.
