Bret was born in Ohio, but grew up in multiple states as his parents job kept the family on the move. When he moved to Arizona almost 20 years ago, he knew he had found the place he wanted to stay. Bret, his wife Oly (a legal immigrant from Venezuela), and their three children moved to Maricopa back in 2009, and they’ve watched the city they call home grow and prosper through challenging times, adding a new city hall, police stations, fire stations, many new businesses, and a lot of new residents. Two of their three children attended schools in the Maricopa Unified School District and one is an ASU graduate. While all are now living away from home, the Roberts Family remains very involved in each other’s lives. Bret Roberts has a dual background in both mortgage financing and law enforcement. His employment with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office as a Detention Officer bestowed on him that keen sense of family and brotherhood that those who wear a uniform share, and his time in the mortgage industry has given him an astute attention to detail and a chance to be a part of families making big changes.
What the jobs have in common is that they helped develop his fondness for relating to people of all backgrounds and listening to how he can best help them. In 2014, Bret was elected Constable in Pinal County with a 20% margin over both his primary and general election opponents. In that position he has received high praise as an active change-maker who has improved the service and performance of his office.
When State Senator Steve Smith decided to run for Congress, State Representative Vince Leach agreed to run for Smith’s seat, creating a vacancy for one of the district’s two House seats in 2018. Bret and his family listened to those urging him to run, and after family thought and prayer, he joined the LD11 Conservative Team with Vince Leach and State Representative Mark Finchem.
