Meet Casey B. Welch

A lifelong Republican and proud native of Arizona State, Casey Burke Welch is the grandson of former state representative of Sierra Vista, Lieutenant Colonel Fred Burke. His grandfather’s service in the second World War and the Korean War, inspired him to love, respect and serve the country with great pride.

Following in his grandfather’s footsteps by serving the country he loves, Casey began his service by joining the U.S. Peace Corps as a Small Business Development Volunteer in Nicaragua helping create 11 agriculture cooperatives producing beef, cheese, and milk. After his time as a volunteer in the U.S. Peace Corps, Casey built a successful business from the ground up in Nicaragua managing three national brands focusing on beef jerky, hot sauce, and dog bones. Given his strong desire to serve his country, Casey returned to public service accepting even greater challenges by working in hotspots such as Iraq, Afghanistan, and Colombia with the U.S. Agency for International Development, the U.S. Department of State, and the U.S. Peace Corps respectively.

As a government official, Casey provided faithful and valuable service to the country by working closely with U.S. and NATO troops in kinetic and remote areas to help stabilize towns and villages plagued by conflict between host governments and terrorist organizations. In addition, Casey served as a senior consultant to military troops heading to Afghanistan, Iraq, and Kosovo by producing live scenarios and facilitating training sessions geared towards ensuring optimal cooperation and collaboration between our troops and those of the host nations.

Now back in the U.S., Casey looks forward to using the experience he has acquired in business and public service over the years to represent Arizona’s second congressional district. Particularly, Casey wants to be a forceful advocate for the district in Congress and work on legislation that puts our economy and national security first. Additionally, the leadership skills and experiences he has acquired over the years will make him an effective legislator who will work tirelessly to strengthen our borders and devise immigration policies that serve the best interests of Arizona and the rest of the country.

Casey attended Marion Military Institute before enrolling at Arizona State University where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Global Business Administration. Casey later earned three graduate degrees in business administration, public administration, and natural resources management.

Casey met his wife, Karen, an agricultural engineer, while serving as a Peace Corps volunteer. They have been married since 2005 and have a 4-year-old daughter. They are also expecting their second child soon.
