+ − Biography
Representative Kate Brophy McGee is serving her third term in the Arizona House of Representatives, representing Legislative District 28. The district includes North Central Phoenix, Biltmore, Arcadia and the Town of Paradise Valley.
Representative Brophy McGee is a third generation Arizonan, born into a ranching family and raised in southern Arizona. She graduated from the University of Arizona and worked as a community banker lending to small businesses. She saw firsthand how hard business owners work to create the jobs that drive Arizona's economy.
Representative Brophy McGee married her husband, Bob McGee, 30 years ago, and they have lived in their North Central/Sunnyslope neighborhood ever since. All three of their sons attended Phoenix public schools and graduated from Sunnyslope High School. Her oldest son is a graduate of the University of Arizona Law School and is an attorney in Phoenix. Her middle son is a graduate of Northern Arizona University and her youngest son is a graduate of Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, California. Both the younger sons are planning on attending graduate school.
Representative Brophy McGee is Chairman of the House Banking & Financial Services Committee and Vice Chairman of the House Children & Family Affairs Committee. Representative Brophy McGee serves as the co-chair of the Joint Legislative Child Protective Services Oversight Committee. She is a member of the Child Help Arizona Board and the Flinn Foundation's Bio Sciences Roadmap Steering Committee.
Following the discovery of over 6,000 cases of child abuse that went uninvestigated by Child Protective Services, Representative Brophy McGee was tapped to serve on key gubernatorial and legislative committees tasked with reforming the troubled agency. She sponsored the legislation establishing the Department of Child Safety as a stand-alone agency during an historic May, 2014 Special Session of the legislature.
Prior to her election to the legislature, Representative Brophy McGee served nearly a decade on the Washington Elementary School Board, including four terms as Board President. She also served six years on the Arizona School Facilities Board, including one term as Chairman. She continues her many community-based volunteer activities in addition to her legislative duties.
As a mother, banker and community leader, Representative Brophy McGee is committed to working patiently and persistently with her constituents, colleagues and Arizona's leaders to make our great state even better.
