Today on Hempresent we are joined by Nick Sarwark, a Phoenix mayoral candidate. In 1942, Nicks grandfather, Roman “Slim” Sarwark, came to Phoenix with one lung, the change in his pocket, and a dream. A dream to build a life for his family. Phoenix is his family’s home. After finishing law school and starting his legal career, Nick came back home to Phoenix to fulfill that dream for his wife, Valerie, and their three children.
Phoenix is their home. They want Phoenix to be a great and safe place to raise children, start a business, and fulfill the American dream. Sarwark is a political animal catch him on C-SPAN occasionally, as the national chair of the Libertarian Party. But only recently did he turn his attention to local politics. Watching City Council members jump into the race to succeed outgoing Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, Sarwark knew that he wanted to challenge them and the status quo he says they represent.
