Former state senator won’t ‘compromise on core conservative beliefs’

KINGMAN – A man known for his unwavering support of conservative positions and policy has announced his candidacy for District 5 Mohave County supervisor.


Republican Ron Gould served two years on the Lake Havasu City Council before four successive terms in the Arizona Senate ending in 2013.

Gould still owns and operates a contract heating and air conditioning company in Lake Havasu City, but he and his wife moved to a ranch south of Yucca more than a year ago.

Gould enters the race with a critical view of Mohave County’s official contemplations of increasing revenue.

“They’ve been mulling over tax hikes for a couple of years. I don’t think we should have to pay higher taxes because they spend too much money,” Gould said. “I’ve never voted for a tax increase, either personally or as an elected official, and I don’t intend to vote for one in the future.”

Gould said he appeals to the Mohave County voting base for his support of limited government and lowering spending. “I’m happy to compromise on other issues, but I’m not going to compromise on core conservative beliefs,” Gould said.

Gould and former Mohave County Supervisor Jim Zaborsky will likely face off in the August Republican primary.
