About The Event
Steve Farley, father of two, is an artist and entrepreneur. Elected to the state Legislature in 2006, he rose to become House Assistant Minority Leader. Farley brings deep experience in infrastructure, water, transportation, education and economic development to the Mayor’s race. He was instrumental in gaining approval for a comprehensive regional transportation system (RTA) of roads, buses, bikeways and sidewalks, and the modern streetcar light rail line, which opened in Tucson in 2014 and has created hundreds and hundreds of jobs and more than $1 billion in private construction projects within three blocks of its route — all in the middle of the worst recession Arizona has seen.
Farley is also a well-known artist and graphic designer who invented a new way of converting photographs to glazed ceramic tile. In addition to creating the tile mural that graces the Broadway underpass leading to Downtown Tucson, Farley has completed numerous mural projects around the U.S. He has run his own public art and graphic design business since 1991.
