A Republican, Steve Moss began his first term in January 2013.
Steve's a third generation Arizonan and the eldest of seven children. He's married to Hayley Moss (nee Fry) who teaches the 5th grade in the Mohave Valley Elementary School District. They have two children, Mallory (age 10) and William (age 8). While they met in high school, they've only been married twelve years as it took nearly twenty years for Steve to work up the nerve to ask her out.
After high school Steve enlisted in the United States Marine Corps, serving from 1984-1988 (mostly overseas). He then attended Eastern Michigan University where he earned a double major in Economics and Political Science. He was awarded a scholarship through law school, where he graduated cum laude and served on the Law Review.
After law school, Steve immediately moved back to Arizona and was quickly hired by the law firm of Gurtler, Kelley and Moyer. He remains a law partner in Kelley Moss, as Charles W. Gurtler Jr. took the bench (and currently serves as Presiding Judge) and Kenneth Moyer relocated to Lake Havasu City where he is a successful sole practitioner.
Steve is an active Rotarian (and firmly believes in Rotary's motto of "Service Above Self") and a member of the Mohave Valley United Methodist Church. He is also the Regional Commissioner of Region 397 of the American Youth Soccer Organization, which has over 1,000 children from Mohave Valley, Fort Mohave and Bullhead City currently playing soccer in a fun, safe and rewarding environment.
Steve Moss was appointed by Governor Ducey to Mohave County Superior Court Division 3 on July 24th 2017
