He is passionate about local governance and seeks to improve the quality of bureaucracy wherever he works. As a team member, he brings humor, compassion, and professionalism to the workplace.

Joseph lives in rural Arizona with his wife, four children, and their pets. During his free time, he strives to teach and love his family the way that his mentors did for him, watch movies, play music, and be outdoors.
