Gilbert Town Councilman Steve Urie announced Friday he is resigning, effective immediately, to run for the state Legislature.

After 11 years on the town council and four years as a commissioner on Gilbert’s Redevelopment Commission, Urie, a Republican, plans to run for the state House of Representatives in District 22. The primary election is Aug. 24.

Urie said his main focus will be classroom funding, securing the border and reducing or eliminating barriers and taxes that make the state unattractive to relocating businesses.

Urie, 57, is a designated broker and owner of Mesa Verde Property Management, a residential rental company.

He has been married for 32 years, and has four children, including a senior and a freshman at Highland High School and a junior at Brigham Young University.
