Kyle Nitschke was born and raised in Gilbert, AZ. He graduated from Northern Arizona University with a BS in Political Science and BS in Strategic Communications. Kyle has been organizing since 2016, fighting for a government that works to make the lives of Arizonans better.
In 2018, as the organizer for NextGen America in Flagstaff, Kyle registered over 2,500 young people and contributed to an increase in voter turnout in the 2018 election of 300% on NAU's campus. After graduating, Kyle took a job with a Congressional campaign where he met with and listened to the concerns of thousands of Arizona voters.
Kyle's passion is in working with young people and increasing their political power. Arizona has seen drastic cuts to public education funding, and Kyle has seen the suffering of students, their families, faculty, and staff as a result. Kyle wants to see our public schools funded by 100% public funds. Kyle wants to see a thriving Arizona with jobs that have benefits (paid sick leave, parental leave, retirement savings, etc.). Most importantly, Kyle wants to see a State Legislature that works for ALL Arizonians, not just wealthy donors.
During this campaign, Kyle's goal is to register and engage new voters in the district. By running as a Clean Elections candidate Kyle can focus on talking to voters instead of fundraising.
